7th Pay Commission: How pre-2016 CG pensioners can calculate pension
The 7th Central Pay Commission had recommended two formulations for the revision of pension of pre-2016 pensioners. A resolution was issued indicating the decisions taken by the government on the various recommendations pensionary matters.
The commission made several recommendations to the pension formulation for civil employees including the CAPF personnel who had retired before January 1 2016.
All the Civilian personnel including CAPF who retired prior to January 1 2016 would be first fixed by the Pay Matrix recommended by the pay panel. This would be done on the basis of the Pay Band and Grade Pay at which they retired at the minimum corresponding level in the matrix. The amount would be raised to arrive at the notional pay of the retiree by adding the number of increments he or she earned in that level while in service at a 3 per cent rate. 50 per cent of the total amount arrived at would be the revised pension.
As per the second calculation, the pension as had been fixed at the time of the implementation of the 6th Pay Commission recommendations shall be multiplied 2.57 to arrive at an alternate value for the revised pension.
The pensioners may be given the option of choosing the formulation which is beneficial to them. According to 7thpaycommissionnews.in, the fixation of pension as per formulation in (i) above may take a little time since the records of each pensioner will have to be checked to ascertain the number of increments earned in the retiring level.
It is therefore recommended that in the first instance the revised pension may be calculated as at (ii) above and the same may, be paid as an interim measure. In the event calculation as per (i) above yields a higher amount the difference may be paid subsequently.
The two options that have been recommended by the 7th Pay Commission with regard to pension revision will be accepted as per feasibility of the implementation. The revision of pension based on the second option based on the fitment factor of 2.57 per cent will be implemented immediately.
