GOVT AGAIN COMMITS TO COMPLY WITH CAT JUDGMENT FOR REVISION OF PENSION OF PRE-2006 PENSIONERS WITH LESS THAN 33 YEARS SERVICE BUT SEEKS MORE TIME FOR COMPLIANCE
Orders are likely to be issued early for full Pension to the Pre-2006 Pensioners who retired after 10 years of service on superannuation or 20 years of service on Voluntary retirement or on absorption in PSUs. Their pension shall be revised as per judgment of CAT New Delhi instead of Pro-Rata Pension.
Govt. advocate, while replying to the Contempt Petition filed by CGSAG (S-29) Pensioners Association-vs-UOI, had agreed in CAT New Delhi on 16-2-16, to implement within 4 weeks the CAT judgements (dated 21-4-2015 in OA 1165/2011 & Dated 22-1-2016 in OA 2165/2011, RA 165/2015 & 175/2015).
In the hearing of the Contempt Petition in the CAT on 31-3-2016, the Govt. Advocate sought more time to submit compliance orders on the judgment. The next date for hearing was fixed on 25th May, 2016.
Earlier, the Department of Expenditure, wanted to restrict the said benefit to the Petitioners, but finally agreed in a Meeting with Staff Side JCM on 10-3-2016, to reconsider the matter in view of the opinion of Deptt. of Legal Affairs for implementation of the CAT orders.
