REVISE PENSION OF PRE-2006 RETIREES BY MAY 31: MINISTRY
The Ministry of Finance has issued orders that pending cases concerning revision of pension consequent to the government removing the requirement of having 33 yrs service to earn full pension should be processed by May 31. The revision would increase the pension of the central employees concerned. The provision of having 33-year service for earning full pension was done away with in 2006 on implementation of the Sixth Pay Commission, but this benefit was not extended to pre-2006 pensioners and the pension in such cases was being calculated with the proportionate reduction. In April, orders were issued to bring them on par with post-2006 pensioners.Orders issued by the Central Pension Accounting Office on April 27 have directed all principal chief controllers of accounts, chief controllers of accounts, controllers of accounts, accountant generals and UT administrators to revise such cases by using e-revision applications available on official networks.Over 93,000 cases from 54 Central ministries and departments are pending for revision consequent to the April 6 order. The highest number (58,629) is from the Ministry of Home Affairs.
