    Talking Good News for Post 1-1-2006 / Pre-2-9-2008 Pensioners with 20 years service

    Dear Post 1-1-2006 / Pre-2-9-2008 Pensioners with 20 years service,

    We have a good news today. You must have noticed union government has approved all the recommendations of G.K.Chadha Pay Commission Report on revision of Central Government Universities / Colleges Teachers pay. These recommendations are in line with 6th CPC recommendations and are effective from 1-1-2006. One of the recommendation is that " Teachers should be eligible for full pension after 20 years of qualifying service and the same is effective from 1-1-2006."
    The G.K. Chadha report recommends

    "All the recommendations from a single date"
    "All the recommendations to be implemented in toto as a package with effect from 1-1-2006"
    Please go to the link http://www.academics-india.com/Pay-report.htm to see G.K. Chadha Commission Report.

    Please go to the link http://gconnect.in/gc/news/governmen...-teachers.html to see news on Govt. approval on G.K. Chadha Commission Report.

    Please note that 100% expenditure on implementation of G.K. Chadha Report is to be borne by Central Government as per its report and the same is accepted by government.

    Now how government can deny full pension to those government employees who retired between 1-1-2006 and 2-9-2008 after completion of 20 or more years of service based on 6th CPC recommendations. This is a valid point to demand for full pension / to fight for justice in view of recent OM dated 11-12-2008 allowing only calculation of pension based on 50% of last pay drawn, but , denying still full pension to those who have less than 33 years of service.

    Please also note that calculation of pension @ 50% of Last Pay drawn and payment of full pension on completion of 20 years, both were a single recommendation of 6th CPC considering both are a shift from CCS Pension Rules 1972. If it is so, how DoP & PW can implement only half portion of the recommendation from a previous date???????.

    We are getting more and more valid points from all these arbitrary recommendations on effective date and government decisions on that.

    With Best Regards & Good Luck,

    Cheers

    Yes .The Govt. has issued notification vide No.1-32/2006-U-II/U-I(1) of Min. of Human Resource Development, Dept. of Higher Education on 31/12/08 accepting these recommendations. . The order is however, silent on past pensioners and how their pension is regulated.
    The complete text of the notification is available from website

    Dear Ramdas,

    GK Chadha committe had recommended full pension on completion of 20 years and also recommended that all its recommendations should be implemented from a single date, namely 1-1-2006 and not any date later than that except for allowances which is to be implemented from 1-9-2008 and news was that MHRD has accepted all the recommendations of GK Chhadha Committe. But, now when order isued on 31-12-2008, it said that pensionary benefits including payment of full pension after 20 years of service will be as per central government CCS Pension Rules. That means somebody from Finance / Pension dept. has sabotaged that also. However, teachers retired after 1-1-2006 with 20+ years of service have every right to get GK Chadha Commission Report implemented without any dilution and hence they should take up the case to government so that every one having 20+ years service and retired after 1-1-2006 will get benefitted.

    Now, 6th CPC recommended from 2-9-2008 and GK Chadha Committe recommended from 1-1-2006 and hence the effective date has to be from 1-1-2006 as the later only ensures application of revised pension rules and that on other retirement benefits equally to all the employees retired from 1-1-2006.

    This definitely is good news for post 1/1/06 retirees of the central Govt. But when the dept of Pensioners' Welfare(?) is bent on depriving what was granted by the Govt. thro' gazette notification, will they take corrective step to grant something which is not granted yet. If they do so it would deserve a celebration.

    Resolution on Government Notification was as below.

    “Linkage of full pension with 33 years of service should be dispensed with and pension shall be paid @ 50% of last pay drawn or average of last 10 months pay whichever is beneficial to retiring employee. Simultaneously, the extant benefit of adding years of qualifying service for purposes of computing pension/related benefits should be withdrawn as it would no longer be relevant ” was a single recommendation and the same was accepted by cabinet”. This recommendation as a whole is a basic change from CCS Pension Rules 1972. There is no prospective effect or retrospective effect mentioned against this recommendation.

    Now DoP & PW has already issued orders implementing pension at 50% of last pay drawn with effect from 1-1-2006. That means liberalised pension rules 2008 is made effective from 1-1-2006, which is also a part of above recommendation and is a basic change from previous pension rules. If that is the case, why can't dispansation of linkage of pension with 33 years of service also implemented from 1-1-2006??? That shows favouring some section of post 1-1-2006 pensioners instead of considering all the post 1-1-2006 pensioners equally in applying rules. Moreover, these pensioners were serving government emplyees even after 1-1-2006 till the date of their retirement and their pension and other retirement benefits including salary are being revised and arrears are being paid based on revised rules. Hence, there is no justice in equating them with Pre 1-1-2006 pensioners whose pension only is being revised. Here the Question is application of Pension Rules. WHICH RULE IS APPLIED TO PENSIONERS RETIRED BETWEEN 1-1-2006 & 2-9-2008? Is it CCS Pension Rules 1972 or Revised Pension Rules 2008? A mixture of rules are being applied for calculation of pension when CCS Pension Rules 1972 only is applied to Pre 1-1-2006 pensioners and Revised Pension Rules 2008 only is applied to Post 2-9-2008 pensioners.

    DoP & PW should have forseen this anomaly while framing rules / issuing clarification orders.

    That is the reason GK Chadha Committe recommended as below.

    5.4.4 Pension: The PRC recommends that the VI Central Pay Commission recommendations in respect of pension may be adopted in Toto for teachers that includes eligibility for full pension (50% of average pay or last pay drawn whichever is higher) after 20 years of qualifying service.

    5.5.4 Implementation from a Single Date: The Pay Review Committee reiterates that its recommendation be implemented by all universities and colleges in all states fully as a package and not partially. Further, these recommendations should be implemented with effect from a single date, namely, 1.1.2006 and not from any date later than this. However, various allowances except Dearness Allowance shall be admissible with effect from 1.9.2008.

    My dear G Ramdasji. You have very rightly said. Unless somebody from higher up tells DOP to change its stand of 3rd Oct. 08 and revert back to the orginal position (effective date being 01 01 06 for implementing accepted recommendatins for all pensionersas) on 29th and 30th August08, no good can come to us. Let us all think about it and find out from within what each one of us has done in this direction, individually ?

    In the light of Paras 5.4.4 and 5.5.4 above, will the pre-2006, teacher pensioners, get 50% of the minimum of the pay in the pay band corresponding to the pre- revised scale plus grade pay?This is a million dollar question, after seeing how DP&PW modified the earlier orders for Central Govt. pensioners.

    All the pensioners with minimum 20 years of service should be eligible for full pension without linking pension with 33 years of service w.e.f 2-9-2008 as per 6th CPC recommendation, Cabinet Decision (Gazette Notification) and Supreme Court Judgements and as per G.K. Chadha Committe recommendation it should be paid from 1-1-2006.
