OUTCOME OF SCOVA MEETING HELD ON 13.10.2015 ON 33 YEARS LINKAGE PRORATA REDUCTION.
Standing Committee of Voluntary Agencies (SCOVA) held on 13th October, 2015
2. Extension of the benefits of DoP&PW OM No.38/37/08-P&PW(A) dated 28-1-2013 read with OM dated 30-7-2015 to pre-2006 Pensioners with less than 33 years of service. K P&T PA while sending items/issues for inclusion in the Agenda for discussion in the 27th Meeting of SCOVA had requested that the issue of grant of modified parity in pension between pre and post 2006 Pensioners may be reviewed in its entirety , keeping in view the recommendations of 6th CPC, and the provisions of OM dated 28-1-2013 read with OM dated 30-7-2015 may be further liberalised and modified to extend the benefit to all pre-2006 Pensioners with less than 33 years of service , thereby ending pro rata reduction in pension for less than 33 years of service. It was also suggested that modified parity should be made applicable to all pre-206 pensioners irrespective of placement of the post from which they retired in a higher pay scale subsequent to their retirement, either from 1-1-1996 under 5th CPC or from 1-1-2006 under the 6th CPC, since several posts were placed in Higher Pay Scale under 5th and 6th CPCs and the Pensioner who retired from the same posts prior to their up gradation have been denied the benefit of modified parity in pension with reference to the Upgraded Pay Scale on par with those who retired from the Upgraded Posts.
However, the 2nd fresh Agenda item of the meeting notified by DoP&PW, did not deal with grant of modified parity in respect of pensioners retiring from upgraded posts and the item was confined to pro rata pension for less than 33 years of service.
When the item was taken up, the JS(PP) informed that the matter is sub judice and therefore cannot be discussed. Pensioners’ Associations wanted early resolution of this long pending grievance. The Secretary, (PP) intervened to say that the case was with DoE and the process of consultation is happening and he hoped to find a solution in about 2 months time.
