Subject: – Implementation of Government’s decision on the recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission – Revision of pension of pre- 2016 Pensioners/ Family Pensioners, etc.-reg.
DP&PW vide OM No. 38/37/2016-P&PW (A) dated-12.05.2017 on the above subject had issued detailed instructions to all concerned to revise the pensions of pre-2016 pensioners/ family pensioners. But while issuing instructions to PAOs vide CPAOs OM No. CPAO /IT& Tech/ Revision (7th CPC)/ 19 Vol-III/2016-17/37 dated-25.05.2017 inadvertently an important point “that these orders would not be applicable for the purpose of revision of pension of those pensioners who were drawing compulsory retirement pension under Rule 40 of the CCS (Pension) Rules or compassionate allowance under Rule 41 of the CCS (Pension) Rules. The pensioners in these categories would continue to be entitled to get revised pension in accordance with the instructions contained in DP&PW O.M. No. 38/37/2016-P&PW(A)(ii) dated 04.08.2016” was missed.
Consequently, it has been noticed that some Ministries/Departments have revised the pensions of pensioners who were drawing compulsory retirement pension under Rule 40 of CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972 or Compassionate allowance under 41 of the CCS (Pension) Rules also and sent to CPAO. These cases are to be returned to the concerned PAOs by CPAO.
In view of the above, to avoid any further problems arising out of it, all Pr. CCAs/CCAs/ CAs/ AGs/ Administrators of UPS are requested to instruct their PAOs not to revise such cases.
This issues with the approval of the competent authority.
