2. The pension/family pension of all pre-2016 pensioners/family pensioners shall be revised in line with instructions contained in the DoP&PW OM. dated 12.05.2017. The higher of the two formulation i.e.
(i) the pension/family pension already revised in accordance with DoP&PW O.M. dated 4.8.2016 or
(ii) the revised pension/family pension as worked out in accordance with para 4 of the DoP&PW OM. dated 12.5.2017, shall be treated as revised pension/family pension w.e.f 1.1.2016. It shall be the responsibilities of the Head of Department and concerned Director of Accounts (Postal) to revise the pension/family pension of pre-2016 pensioners/family pensioners w.e.f 1.1.2016 in accordance with these orders and to issue a revised pension payment authority.

3. As envisaged in the DoP&PW O.M., the Pension sanctioning Authority (PSA) would impress upon the concerned Head of Office for fixation of pay on notional basis at the earliest. The information can be obtained in Proforma A. Based on notional pay so fixed, the revision proposal will be sent by Pension Sanctioning Authority to concerned DA (P) to apply necessary checks and issue revised authority under the existing PPO number. To facilitate fixation of notional pay, DA (P) will provide copy of PPO/pension papers to concerned PSA immediately on requisition.

All PSAs will maintain records of processing cases of retirees year-wise in Proforma 8. DA (P) will maintain data of proposal received and authority issued in software as has been done in case of 6th CPC revision of PPOs.

4. Since there will be large number of cases for revision, concerted efforts of all authorities will be required to accomplish the task. It is requested to take immediate action for revision of pension/family pension at the earliest.

Disability pension - A few beneficial provisions with respect to disability pension(DP)

Dear Veterans/ Friends,

I have started law practice in Hon'ble Supreme Court , Delhi High Court and Armed Forces Tribunal (Principal Bench, New Delhi ) with a well established and experienced Advocate . While practicing military law, I have come to know a few beneficial provisions with respect to disability pension(DP) which I would like to share with you all as follows:-

1. If DP sanctioned is less than 50% it can be rounded off to 50 % . if between 50-75 to 75% and 75-100 to 100%.

2. If the Disability assesed by the Release Medical Board is less than 20 % and is not sanctioned by the Competent Authority, it can be claimed by following a due process.

3. Even if the Disability is held to be neither attributed nor aggravated due to military service during Release Medical Board, it can be claimed by following a due process.

4. If retired in S1A1 Med Cat and some problem occurs within 07 years of retirement and there is a medical document to show that this problem originated while in service, DP can be claimed by following a due process.

5. All service personnel who retire from service on superannuation /completion of engagement term/PMR with disability are eligible for DP.

6. Medically Board out is not a necessary condition to claim DP. If retired with disability on superannuation /completion of engagement term/PMR, it is considered as medically boarded out for the purpose of DP.

7. If a person is getting DP, he is exempted from paying Income Tax on the entire service pension.

We provide legal assistance in *all service matters including DP*.

7th Pay Commission: Meeting on central government employees' allowances likely today

Central government employees may get a chance to rejoice as reports suggest that Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) are likely to meet today to deliberate over their reformed allowance structure.

During this meeting, this committee of secretaries will go through the recommendations of Lavasa Committee regarding allowances and firm up their findings to be sent to Union Cabinet for approval.
House Rent Allowance (HRA) rates are one of the major topics that can be taken up in the course of this meeting. Central government employee unions are pushing for HRA at 30 per cent, 20 per cent and 10 per cent of the basic pay against the 24 per cent, 16 per cent and 8 per cent recommended by the 7th pay commission.
Increase in basic pay and arrears on revised allowances are the topics that might be discussed. Central government employees disappointed with the marginal increase in their salaries by the 7th pay commission are expecting any increase in allowances to lead to heftier paychecks.

The Lavasa Committee had received representations from government agencies and offices as well as armed forces and security personnel, referring to 79 allowances 'which have been examined in detail by the Committee.'

The Seventh Pay Commission had suggested that 52 out of 196 allowances be scraped in entirety, whereas 36 of them should be clubbed together with other allowances.
A Committee of Allowances was formed under Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa last year in June to screen these recommendations, which handed over its review report to Union Minister Arun Jaitley on April 27.
This review report was then studied by the Department of Expenditure and then handed over to the E-CoS set up to screen the recommendations by 7th pay commission and consolidate their findings that can be presented before the Cabinet for its nod. Meanwhile, when Centre is still lagging behind in implementing the 7th pay commission, some states are making some headway in implementing 7th pay commission for their respective state government employees too.

Below are the developments some states have seen in this direction:

Bihar State
Cabinet put the 7th pay commission in effect for its employees, increasing their salaries by 14 to 15 per cent. The pay hike will affect 3.6 Bihar state government personnel and 6 lakh pensioners.

Chhattisgarh
The Raman Singh government implemented the 7th Pay Commission for the state on March 30 benefiting around 3 lakh employees.

Maharashtra
Maharashtra state government announced the 7th Pay Commission on March 31 for its staff, putting an additional burden of Rs 500 crore on the exchequer.

Jammu and Kashmir
J&K government mentioned in its budget that the recommendations made by the 7th Pay Commission will be implemented from April 2018 to give a hike of 23,5 per cent to its employees and pensioners.
