Subject: Implementation of the government decision on the recommendations of the sixth central pay commission – revision of pension of the Pre-1.1.2006 armed forces pensioners/family pensioners.
The undersigned is directed to refer to Annexure – II, IIA & III attached to this Ministry’s letter No.17(4)/2008(1)/D(Pen/Pol) dated 11.11.2008 on the above subject as amended indicating amount of minimum guaranteed pension and ordinary family pension in respect of commissioned officers of three services, commissioned officers of MNS and Personnel Below Officer Rank respectively, in terms of provisions contained in Para 5 of this Ministry’s letter dated 11.11.2008 cited above. Due to difference in weightage allowable to different ranks for computation of pension the pro-rata pension in certain lower ranks has been more as compared to higher ranks with same qualifying service. The said anomaly has been considered by the government and the president is pleased to decide that where the amount of pension indicated in the above said Annexure-II, IIA & III of a senior rank happens to be less than the pension of a lower rank (and group in case of PBOR) with same qualifying service, the pension of senior rank shall be stepped up to the level of their junior counterpart. Accordingly, three tables showing rates of minimum guaranteed pension and ordinary family pension of Pre- 1.1.2006 Commissioned Officers of three services, Commissioned Officers of MNS and Personnel Below Officer Rank are annexed to this letter which may be treated as Annexure-II (Revised), Annexure – IIA (Revised) and Annexure – III (Revised) to this Ministry’s above quoted letter dated 11.11.2008.
2. This issues with the concurrence of the Finance Division of this Ministry vide their U.O.No.3884/2010/Fin/Pen dated 04.11.2010.
