Subject: Implementation of recommendations of Expert Committee constituted by Hon’ble Raksha Mantri

Reducing Litigation has been the prime focus of the Government of India and is being repeatedly emphasized by various circulars from Cabinet Secretariat and Ministry of Law & Justice. in this regard, various circulars have been issued by D(CMU) which cover the following aspects significantly:

I. Procedure for handling Court Cases in Ministry of Defence.
II. Procedure for filing of Appeal/SLP in Supreme Court.
III. Measures to withdraw repeated Appeals/SLPs where the issue has already been decided by the Apex court.

Copies of relevant circulars are enclosed.

2. in this regard, a Committee of Experts was also constituted by the Hon’ble Raksha Mantri vide MoD O.M. No.61/D(CMU)/2015 dated 15.07.2015 to look into solutions for reducing litigation concerning the Ministry of Defence and to put in place an efficient mechanism of redressal of grievances related to service and pension matter. The said Committee has made several recommendations to strengthen the grievance redressal mechanism and to reduce litigation. These were examined by the Ministry. With the approval of the Hon’ble RM, 16 recommendations were accepted for implementation, 16 recommendations were accepted in-principle and 43 recommendations were to be further examined for taking an appropriate decision. Based on the recommendations of the Committee, the following guidelines are hereby reiterated for the guidance of all concerned:

Recommendations No. 22, 24 & 61 : Avoiding unnecessary appeals

In these recommendations, the committee has recommended that litigation be viewed in an impersonal, non-adversarial and dispassionate manner and should not be made a prestige-issue or a win/loss situation. The committee has also recommended that- the tendency of continuous unethical filing of appeals in issues that have attained finality at the High Court or Supreme Court should be checked and all such pending appeals should be identified and immediately withdrawn. Further, it has also been emphasized by the committee that unnecessary appeals should be avoided. and as a matter of principle, the attempt of the Government should be to accept court verdicts as far as possible. Appeals should be an exception and not the rule. And in exceptional cases only challenges should be made to the High Courts against verdicts of CAT rendered in favour of employees, and not as a matter of routine. 

All concerned are requested to take note of the above mentioned guidelines. In this regard, D(CMU) has also issued ID note No. 7(9)/2018/D(CMU) dated 26.06.2018 (copy enclosed) and Office Order No. 1/(1)/2015-D(CMU) dated 02/02/2016 (copy enclosed).

Recommendation No. 50: Applicability of Judgements to similarly placed employees

Expert committee has recommended that whenever a legal principle is settled by a High Court or the Supreme Court, the same must be universally applied to all similarly placed employees or at least on individual representations after examining the same, rather than forcing them into individual litigation. 

In this regard, attention is drawn to D(CMU)’s ID No. 7(9)/2018/D(Cl\/lU) dated 26.06.2018 (copy enclosed). However, it is proposed that each case may be decided on its merit, subject to consultation with Department of Expenditure and DOP&T having regard to financial implications.

4. All concerned are again requested to take cognizance of the above recommendations and take necessary action as required, in order to reduce litigation.

Subject: Filing of Appeal/SLP in Supreme Court - Procedure regarding

In the context of the increasing number of court cases where the Government is a litigant before various courts, Ministry of Law had. brought out the National Litigation Policy in 2010. The policy states that Government must cease to be a compulsive litigant. The philosophy that matters should be left to the courts for ultimate decision has to be discarded. The policy further states:

“In Service Matters, no appeal will be filed in cases where:

a) the matter pertains to an individual grievance ‘without any major repercussion;

b) the matter pertains to a case of pension or retirement benefits without involving any principle and without setting any precedent or financial implications.”

2. Further at a meeting held. on 08.10.2015, Hon’ble -Raksha Mantri expressed concern over the fact that Appeals/SLPs are filed in the Supreme-Court in a routine manner and in several cases adverse orders are passed by the Supreme Court much to the embarrassment of the Government. Hon’ble RM observed that there may be court orders which deviate from government policy or have large financial implications. In such cases tiling Appeal/ SLP may be inevitable. There may however be some Court orders which do not have wide repercussions and may have only meager financial implications. In such cases it may be necessary to examine whether it is administratively expedient to file Appeal/SLP in the Supreme Court.

3. In the above background, the procedure for filing Appeal /SLP in the Supreme Court has been reviewed. and it has been decided that the following procedure will be followed while filing Appeal / SLP in the Supreme Court:

a. The Service Hqrs/Directorates will send the proposal for filing or otherwise of Appeal/SLP in the Supreme Court to the concerned Joint Secretary after due examination in light of relevant rules - and policy. The advice of the Central Government Standing Counsel (CGSC) handling the case on the suitability of filing appeal. or otherwise should also be obtained and forwarded along with the proposal. This should be done expeditiously as it has been seen that many of the SLPs/Appeals have been dismissed. by the Hon’ble Supreme Court on account of delay in filing.

b. The J S concerned. shall examine the proposal taking into account the advice of the CG-SC handling the case and previous cases of similar nature, if any, which. are subjudice or have been already decided. by the Supreme Court on merits. Where the decision of the Court involves policy issues or have wider repercussions, the J S shall take the advice of the nodal Ministries/ Departments namely DOP&T, MOF, etc. concerned with the subject.

c. On a comprehensive examination of the case as above, if the J S arrives at a decision that it is a fit case for filing Appeal/ SLP in the Supreme Court, he will refer the file to LA(Def) for his advice / views. Otherwise, he Will return the file to the Service Hqrs/Directorate for implementing the court order with the concurrence of the Defence Finance, if required.

d. On receipt of the proposal for filing Appeal / SLP, LA(Def) will, after due examination of the case, return the file with his views/ advice to the JS.

e. if LA(Def) agrees with the proposal for filing Appeal/SLR the JS will assess the importance of the case and decide Whether it needs to be shown. to AS/Defence Secretary or RM. Thereafter, the file will be returned to LA(Def) for onward transmission to Central Agency Section for filing Appeal/SLP in the Supreme Court. But it has to be kept in mind that in the process, the limitation for filing Appeal/SLP does not get expired. In case, such period has already expired, then reason for the delay has to be shown date-wise for filing an application for getting the delay condoned.

f. If, however, LA(Def) does not agree with the proposal for filing Appeal/SLP and the JS also, in view of the advice of LA(Def), decides that there is no need to file Appeal/ SLP, the file will be sent back to Service Hqrs/ Directorate for implementing the order.

g. If, in spite of the advice of LA(Dei) not to file Appeal/SLR JS decides that there is still justification for filing Appeal/SUD, he will take the approval of Additional Secretary (AS) and send. the file to MOL/CAS through LA(def).

4. Approval of Raksha Mantri shall be taken in all sensitive cases or where wider interests of Public Policy are involved. A decision whether a case will be shown to the Minister will be taken at the level of Joint Secretary.

5. This order is issued in supersession of the earlier order No.1-84(4)/88-O&M dated 2nd June, 1988.

The Pension Sanctioning Authority would impress upon the concerned Record Offices/ PCDA(O) Pune / AFCAO New Delhi/ Naval Pay Office, Mumbai for fixation of pay on notional basis based on extant orders and will issue revised Pension Payment Authority at the earliest.
    5. Suo-moto Revision:
    This office has carried out an analysis to assess no of cases of Pre-16 pensioners where revision is involved. As per sanction database, an estimated 22 lakh cases requires revision of pension/family pension. To carry out revision through normal conventional method of calling for LPC-CUM-Data Sheet from RO with vetting of Pay details by PAO concerned may be a herculean task and would be time consuming. Therefore It has been proposed to carry out suo-moto revision subject to the approval of Ministry of Defence, wherever feasible based on PDA details and Pay details (and other info like Rank Group , QS) wherever available in master data base and based on notional Pay fixation as per Concordance table for 7th CPC issued vide GOI. MOD letter dated 17/10/2018.
    6. Initiation for remaining cases where suo moto is not feasible. (Action by RO/PAO )
    In remaining cases where Pay Details (and other related fields like Rank Group, QS) and current PDA details are not available with this office, in such cases this office will not be able to revise the pension and issue the revised PPO on suo-moto basis. In these cases claims / inputs will be required from concerned RO/PAO to authenticate the pensioner details. Therefore to carryout effective, paperless and speedy revision, an Utility software has been developed by PCDA(P) office to be hosted on CGDA WAN to make available all the data of Pre-2016 JCOs/ORs pensioners/family pensioners for access, modification, initiation (if not found available in database of PCDA(P) on search) and for fixation of 7 th CPC pay details by respective ROs/PAOs in line with MOD letter dated 05/09/2017 (Para 18). Due care has been taken to account for all the cases of live pensioners however still if any case is missing, the same may be floated through this utility by RO/PAO and forwarded online through utility.
    7. Paperless Revision and issue of e-PPO
    Therefore the Data can be accessed, initiated, approved and completed through the utility software provided by this office on WAN and controlled through allotted login / password, which is menu based and user friendly. Collection of data will be realized through an interface accessible through WAN and completed data will be processed by PCDA(P) Allahabad and e-PPOs will be generated in cases received. The working methodology of utility software and the User Manual defining the role of Record Office and Pay Account Office is attached for guidance.
    8. Issue and Transmission of e-PPO
    The revised corrigendum PPO will be issued by PSAs in e-PPO mode with new 12 digit PPO No. and 4 digit suffix code alongwith old PPO number. The e-PPO consisting of .pdf and .xml files will be digitally signed and will be transmitted directly to the PDAs through SFTP connectivity as is already being done for new pensioners (no confirmation from RO is required by PDA). E-PPOs will also be uploaded on CGDA WAN for ROs to download a copy for record purpose as well as for providing a copy to the pensioner/family pensioner concerned. Any irregularity if noticed may be returned back to this office.
    9. Allotment of login ID and password to Administrator of RO and PAO:
    To access the utility programme, each RO and PAO will be issued login ID and password. Accordingly every RO/PAO has to nominate one Officer of their office as ADMIN (Administrator) to whom login credentials i.e. password will be provided by PCDA(P). The ADMIN of RO/PAO may further allot login user id and password to the required number of users to act as Initiator and Approver in their office at their end through ‘User Management’ of utility software on WAN. For this purpose a Proforma for allotment of login ID and password to the Admin of RO/PAO concerned is enclosed as per Annexure-A which may be filled and submitted to this office under the signature of CRO/PAO In charge concerned on the e-mail address <> of this office as well as invariably through the hard copy duly signed by O I/C of the Record Office/PAO concerned to Shri Himanshu Tripathy,IDAS Group Officer, EDP Centre, PCDA(P) Allahabad-211014 for further necessary action within a month of issue of this letter / Circular.
    10. Allotment of login ID and password to other users of RO and PAO (other than administrator)
    The Administrator of RO and PAO will further allot login user ID and password to the required number of users as Initiator and Approver of their office at their end through ‘User Management’ of utility software on WAN. Facility has been provided in the utility software that all user can change their password after allotment or as and when they requires.
    11. Training schedule for Record Offices and concerned Pay Account Offices
    It has also been decided that to familiarise the officers/staff of Record Offices and Pay Account Offices with the running/navigation of utility software a two days training programme (theoretical as well as practical) will be organised for the officials of the ROs/PAOs dealing with the pension matters as per training schedule in DPTI, Allahabad. It is advisable that at least one Officer, one JCO and one ORs from each Record Office and one Sr.AO/AO, one AAO along with one Auditor/Sr. Auditor from each PAO may be required to attend the said training programme. It is also impressed that the officers/staff dealing with this revision task should only be nominated by officer in charge of the RO/PAO concerned to participate in the above training programme. Detailed training schedule in this regard is attached with the circular as Annexure-B. Due to limited facility of accommodation in DPTI, Allahabad, it is informed that the accommodation to the participants in the said training programme will be provided on the availability basis.

    NOTE: A tutorial video for pre training and guidance on utility software is planned to be uploaded on website of PCDA(P) shortly for all the users.

    12. Availability of infrastructure
    Necessary infrastructure i.e. PC, scanner and WAN connectivity to all the users may be arranged/augmented at your end.
