REVISION OF PENSION OF PRE-2006 PENSIONERS.

CONCORDANCE TABLE REVISED ON THE BASIS OF 6CPC REVISED PAY FITMENT TABLE APPLICABLE TO POST 2006 CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES
After a long battle, Pre-2006 Pensioners and family pensioners have something to cheer. Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare, Ministry of Personnel, Pension Grievances and Pension has issued orders to enhance the pension of Pre-2006 Pensioners and Family Pensioners based on revised Concordance Table meant for linking pre-1996, Pre-2006 Pay Scales. This Concordance Table has been revised on the basis of 6CPC revised pay fitment table applicable to Post 2006 Central Government Employees.
It was a long pending demand of Pre-2006 Pensioners and Family Pensioners right from the day of implementation of Sixth Pay Commission report by Govt in 2008 that revision of pension as per minimum of pay in pay band equivalent to the pre-revised pay scale (Pay Scale w.e.f 1986 and Pay scale w.e.f 1996) had created anomaly among Pensioners retired in lower and higher cadre. This Anomaly in revision of pension as per aggrieved pensioners is due to merger of 5 to 9 pre-revised scales in to one post-2006 Pay in Pay band.
For example, nine pre-revised scales were merged into one Post-2006 Pay band of Rs. 15,600-39,100. Consequently, after revision of pension as per 6CPC recommendations in 2008, a pensioner who retired in (comparatively) lower pre-revised pay scale of Rs.9000-275-9550 (S-17) and a pensioner who retired in (comparatively) higher pre-revised pay scale of Rs.12,000-375-18,000 (S-23) were fixed with same amount of post-2006 revised pension.
In order to set right this anomaly, government has now come up with this Office MemorandumF.No.38/37/08-P&PW(A) dated 28.01.2013. As per this OM dated 28.01.2013, the concordance table which was used in the earlier Office Memorandum No: OM No.38/37/08-P&PW(A) dated 01.9.2008 has been revised and the pension of pre-2006 pensioners has been enhanced based on fitment table as per Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure OM No.l/l/2008-IC dated 30th August, 2008, which was issued for fixation of revised pay of Central Government Employees. Similarly, the family pension of Central Government family pensioners has also been enhanced based on revised concordance Table.
To illustrate, this enhanced pension, a pensioner who retired from the pre-1996 (w.e.f 1986) pay scale of Rs.3700-125-4950-150-5700 (S-23) was fixed with post-2006 revised pension of Rs.11,600 as per OM dated 01.09.2008. Now, as per revised concordance Table in OM dated 28.01.2013, the same pensioner would be fixed with a revised enhanced pension of Rs.14,960. The differential enhanced pension in this case would Rs.3360.
However, no arrears of pension will be paid based on this revision of Pension, as the order for enhanced pension would take effect only from 23.09.2012. It has been categorically stated in the OM dated 28.01.2013 that There will be no change in the amount of revised pension/family pension paid during the period 1.1.2006 and 23.9.2012, and, therefore, no arrears will be payable on account of these orders for that period.
The full text of this Office Memorandum F.No.38/37/08-P&PW(A) dated 28.01.2013 is as follows.
