ANOTHER GOOD NEWS TO EX-SERVICEMEN : SUPREME COURT DIRECTS GOVT. TO PAY MINIMUM 50% OF SCALE AS PENSION.

New Delhi, March 17
In a bonanza to retired employees of the armed forces, the Supreme Court today directed the Centre to pay at least 50 per cent of the pay as pension to all of them as recommended by the 6th Central Pay Commission (CPC).
A Bench headed by Justice TS Thakur passed the order while dismissing about 50 appeals filed by the Centre challenging the rulings of various high courts and armed forces tribunals (AFTs). The HCs and AFTs had struck down the office memorandums (OMs) assessing the pension amount at less than 50 per cent for some categories of pensioners.
Appearing for the Centre, Additional Solicitor General Pinky Anand had pleaded that payment of pension at 50 per cent or more would place an additional burden of Rs 1,500 crore. But the Bench said the pensioners were entitled to the CPC recommendations which had been accepted by the government.
They could not be denied of their dues just because some officials, who did not even have the authority to issue the OMs, had misinterpreted the recommendations, the Bench explained.
“We have already affirmed the orders of the HCs and AFTs” in a couple of cases earlier and there was no need for the Centre to come to the SC in each and every such case, the Bench said.
Today’s order should be implemented within four months extending the benefit to all those who were entitled to pension, irrespective of the fact whether they had gone to the AFT/court or not, the Bench clarified.
In one such case, the Delhi High Court had delivered its verdict on April 29, 2013, directing the Centre to ensure that pension was re-fixed at not lower than 50 per cent of the minimum of the pay in the band and the grade pay thereon. Arrears should be paid within two months and any delay would entail 9 per cent interest, it had ruled while dismissing a batch of Centre’s petitions. The HC had said it was in complete agreement with the reasoning of the Punjab and Haryana HC in similar cases.

Respected Sir,
Though this issue is out of context and doesn't cover the OROP issue still I believe this is a matter of grave concern for all ex-serviceman.
The vacancies for ex-serviceman released for CGL 2013 is 1024, whereas final listing shows only 855 ex servicemen were selected on the pretext that no more ex serviceman qualified the DEST. Sir, typing is not merit and so can be developed at later stage. Ex serviceman not indulging in typing job found it difficult to achieve the desired speed but can do so when they knew that typing is their job to earn bread. Over and above this is not steno or clerical job, this is tax-assistant job in which merit/marks scoring should be the main criteria.Just to leave the proud sentinels on the pretext that they committed 7.5/8/8.5 percent errors is inhuman and moral buster. Sir, pl take up the case with the concerned authority and save hundereds of fellow ex servicemen.
