Pay Scales of 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th CPC for Fixation of Pension on Notional Pay

Pay Scales of 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th CPC for Fixation of Pension on Notional Pay

7th CPC Revised Pension Calculation as per Department of Pension and Pensioners Welfare Order dated 12th May 2017 [ See the Order ] is still not clear for Pensioners.

For arriving the Notional pay, it is stated in the DoPPW Order that,

It has been decided that the revised pension/family pension w.e.f. 01.01.2016 in respect of all Central civil pensioners /family pensioners, including CAPF’s, who retired/died prior to 01.01.2016, may be revised by notionally fixing their pay in the pay matrix recommended by the 7th CPC in the level corresponding to the pay in the pay scale /pay band and grade pay at which they retired/died.

This will be done by notional pay fixation under each intervening Pay Commission based on the Formula for revision of pay. While fixing pay on notional basis, the pay fixation formulae approved by the Government and other relevant instructions on the subject in force at the relevant time shall be strictly followed.

Arriving of the Notional pay in Successive Pay scale is not made clear in the Examples given in the DoPPW order for Revision of Pension on Notional Pay. The methodology applied for arriving the Notional Pay in Successive pay scales should be shown in the Examples. The formulae adopted to revise the Pay in each intervening Pay Commission should be shown with the illustrative examples. Then only it will be arrived without any confusion.

At least to help the CG Pensioners, Pay Scales of 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th Pay Commission is given below. However they can identify the Pay Scales of Successive Pay Commission.

    What is said above is exactly correct. The orders issued by the government is only vogue and not crystal clear. The examples shown also to be categorical. If increment earned in the cadre in which a person retired is not criteria for calculation of revised pension (the option recommended by the CPC), then how the revised option to be taken into account. This answer should be made clear, which the orders never say.
