6th Pay Commission: Pensioners voice their anger against disparities
Khabrien.Info News Desk,
New Delhi, Sept 10, 2008: Central Government pensioners have been voicing their anger against disparities in the 6th Pay Commission recommendation as well as actual notification issued by central government. They feel that they have been cheated both by the government and the Sixth Pay Commission.
Union Government accepted Sixth Pay Commission recommendations on 14th August and issued notification two weeks later. Central government pensioners seem to be totally dissatisfied with the implementation due to disparities and anomalies
in 6th Pay Commission and they have been voicing their anger and frustration openly.
Given their limitation, they are retired people and cannot come on the streets to take on the government, they are letting their anger known by writing to different media houses, newspapers, magazines and portal. Here we present the aggrieved views of the central government pensioners:
Defence pensioners are denied the benefit which Maj. Dhanapalan achieved after fighting a prolonged legal battle. But the pity is govt. has not rectified their mistake to other officers similarly placed and suffering silently. At some time or
other, the govt must rectify their mistakes in pension to pre-1996 pensioners. Otherwise it would be a thankless govt. and cpc.

The new paybands is detrimental to pensioners as many posts/scales have been fitted into one common payband with grade pay which is virtually broad persons with higher grade into lower pension range as earlier payscales were distinct narrow and while fixation of pension , even starting of scale was not affecting the pension of employees so widely. Now with wider band, the senior grade officers pension will suffer so badly. However, officers of additional secy and above have for this purpose carved off as HAG+ grade with a miniumum of RS 75500/ starting pay getting them of assured pension of 37750/- while next lower grade officer get a pension of Rs 37000+12000 divide by 2ie 24500/- .Earlier the difference in pension was on less than 5 % which is now 50%. In fact pay commission has devised to affect
systematically the pension of all ranks except secy and additional secy. bad work.
Government must devise minimum pension in same proportion as per earlier ratios.

This injustice between pre-2006 and post-2006 appears to be more glaring in PB4. This is due to faulty interpretation of
Para 4.2 of pre-2006 pensioners’ OM.’The minimum of pay in PB plus grade pay corresponding to pre-revised scale of the retiree’ should be interpreted as min
of pay in PB corresponding to pre-revised scale plus gde pay corresponding to pre revised scale.Instead it is unjustly being interpreted as min of Payband plus only grade pay corresponding to pre-revised scale.For S-29 scale this wrong reading means (37600+10000)/2 =23700 as the min limit instead of (44700+10000)/2 =27350. Thus leading to a loss of 3650 in pension for pre-2006 pensioners.Hope the authorities clarify and make correct interpretaion so that this anomaly is immediately removed. Otherwise this is bound to lead to totally avoidable litigations.

The condition of ex- servicemen is much worse. To cite an example a sergeant of technical group retired from Air force after 15 years of service draws a basic pension of 1892+ 946 DP +47% OF 2838 as DR toalling R.4172 as on 1.9.2008
and the same will be revised to Rs. 4962. However a sergeant of tech. group retiring now after 15 years of service will get a total pension of RS.7830. Similarly the civilian employees who are in the pay scale of 5000- equivalent to the pay
scale of sergeant will also receive Rs.7830 as pension. In the bargain the similarly placed defence pensioners like me will lose 2888 per month.

It is not correct to say that those who retired after 1-1-2006 are getting 50 percent of their last pay drawn as pension.According to the O.M. dated 2-9-2006, para 5.2. and 5.3 of these orders are only prospectively effective from the date of
issue of the order. i.e. 2-9-2008. Those who retired between 1-1-2006 and 1-9-2008 are entitled to pension based on their 10 months average emoluments and length of service as per old rules. The position of those retiring within 10 months from 1-1-2006 is still worse. Their average pay includes old basic pay+D.P+24% D.A. for certrain months plus revised pay after 1-1-2006 to the date of retirement. They are neithe coming under the fitment formula of pre- 1-1-2006 for getting the fitment of 40% of basic pension nor coming under the new scheme to get grade pay for all the months for fixation of pension based on average emoluments. All most all such employees retired within 10 months from 1-1-2006 are losing in their pension compared to the pension fixed under pre-revised scales.

Why disparity with employees of PSU so for as equal pension for equal pay is concerned, This principal has been accepted by the pay commission. It seems the managements of these PSU are waiting for the retired employees to go to courts and get the awards. Let the managements of these PSU such as GIC, LIC and its subsidiaries accept the same and follow the recommendation of the pay commission. Generated: 10 September, 2008, 19:25
