Delinking of 33 years of service for pension- PCDA(P) circular No 568 dated 13.10.2016 - Simplified

First of all we would like to explain how the pension of ESM was calculated before 6th CPC or pre-01.01.2006 pensioners. Suppose you were holding rank of Sgt, Hav or PO. You left service after 15 or 20 years. Pension calculation was made taking into account the maximum of pay scale of the rank you held and years of service rendered at the time of discharge.

Example: Maximum of pay scale of Sgt was suppose=Rs 100

Service rendered=20 years ( or 15 Years whatever may be)

Basic Pension = (20/33 * 100)/2=Rs 30.30. (Then Dearness Relief on pension is added and commutation amount is deducted) it became your total pension.

6 CPC changed pay structure in totally different manner and recommended that in place 33 years of service 20 years is enough to earn 50% pension. Govt accepted its recommendations. Some of our active and vigilant ESM organisations filed a petitions in Armed forces Tribunal Principle Bench (A retired SC Judge is Chairman of AFT) stating that pre 01.01.2006 pensioners are being discriminated as they are not being paid 50% pension even though they served for 20 years. AFT gave its decision in favor of ESM. Then the case went to Delhi HC and later to SC. On 17.03.2015 Honble Supreme Court directed Govt to implement orders of AFT and Delhi HC, justifying the demand of ESM. After a lot of delay, somehow PDCA(P) Allahabad issued the circular no. 568 dated 13.10.2016 for compliance of SC orders.

Circular 568 contains 4 annexures displaying fitment tables for all pre-01.01.2006 Officers and men of armed forces equalizing them with post 01.01.2006 pensioners. Annx A is for Officers of all 3 services, B is for Army JCO/ORs, C is for AF and D is for Navy.

For example: As per this circular a X Gp Sgt is fixed with 14890/- hence his 50% minimum basic pension is 7445/-wef 01.01.2006 to 30.06.2014 before OROP was implemented. Likewise Sgt of Gp Y is fixed at 12840/- and his 50% pension is 6420/-

This circular has been already received by PPAs and Banks but they are mulling over it so far because they have to pay arrears for period of 8.5 years to all ESM who served less than 33 Years. The amount of arrears due to be paid to ESM who served 15-20 years turns out into lacs.

Our observation on this circular is “ Less you served, more the arrears for you”

AFVATN wishs you all the best for getting your dues at an early date.

AMC Records still not taking UK cases with PCDAP for broad banding Thorpe retired on superannuation. Case of No 13910746 ex NK Narain Dev stated in their letter No 13910746/Pen/DP Corres dated 15 June 2017 stating As per existing rules, policy for broad banding of disability element and provision are applicable to those pensioner who have been invalided out on medical ground at the time of their discharge before completion of their normal service lie it/TOE of the rank held at the time of discharge. Hence broad banding is not admissible.

Inclusion of the DOB (Date of Birth) of Spouse in the PPO of the soldier's/airmen and sailors by using Aadhaar as a reference by the PDAs.

I understand that many widows are not getting the pension/arrears just because their Date of Birth is not reflected in the original PPO. Consequently they have to run around the PCDA (P), Record Office, AG Branch AHQ, the PDA with no solutions in sight. I too faced the problem and suffered for the last two years. As a last resort I approached my bankers to include my Spouse's name in their system and they did it in a jiffy on my giving them my Spouse's Aadhaar number from which they got her DOB confirmed.

This information will be of help to all widow pensioners of the Armed Forces. More over all soldiers too can include their Spouse's DOB if they are not included in their PPOs.
