hi all

YES- w.r.t Pre-2006 retirees, I may sadly point out, there is a CORRIGENDUM OM dtd 3rd Oct 2008 issued by the DoP/PW- which is issued as if to correct the omission of the mention of FAMILY PENSION in their earlier OM of 1st Sept 2008.

The disastrous result of this CORRIGENDUM is moist damaging for many pre-2006 pensioners in various scales/ grades, who have been bunched together- FOR PENSION purposes and they stand to lose as they are often relegated to the minimum pay in the pay bands which are much lower than the entitled/at par/ equivalent scales, for fixation of pension.In effect, the latter OM of 3rd Oct 2008 nullifies the philosophy/ practice of parity in pension among pensioners of equal pay/ grade irrespective of dates of retirement or arbitrary 'date-partitions' of Pay Commissions! It neutralises the assertion/assurance made out in paragraph 4.2 of the earlier OM of 1st Sept 2008

This results in disparity among pensioners , pointed out and argued elsewhere in this portal itself - ie in the thread "INJUSTICE TO PRE-2006 PENSIONERS...................." started by me, a few days back.

All are advised to read the various points made out, gist of the court cases fought for pension parity at various times, and what line of actions the affected can follow- before it is too late!
