This amount shall be raised, to arrive at the notional pay of the retiree, by adding the number of increments he/she had earned in that number of increments he/she had earned in that level while in service, at the rate of three percent. Fifty percent of the total amount so arrived at shall be the revised pension.
(ii) The second calculation to be carried out is as follows. The pension, as had been fixed at the time of implementation of the VI CPC recommendations, shall be multiplied by 2.57 to arrive at an alternate value for the revised pension.

  4. Friends, why raise the silly question again and yet again. The whole world knows that Jawans and ESM are all fairly rich community who all can wait indefinitely for their dues. In any case most of them are living in border / front and field areas / sea duties etc etc where there are no shopping malls , cineplexes or food courts where they may need any money far less extra money. And they get free food and great luxurious free accommodation in natural surroundings also in those areas. As for their families, they have been accustomed to such living so they also don't need any extra money. The government spends so liberally on training including grooming the Jawans to survive in jungles, mountains, seas and all God forsaken places as also how to survive in cities, towns and villages, without money and yet their complaining and comparing with civilians has become a perpetual bad habit without realising that the civilian babus need all the money and benefits in time as they have to face their families every evening at six o'clock for five days a week and top that with two full weekend days with them. Imagine the civilian babu's plight! The poor souls need to take their families out for some entertainment and enjoyment. So, take it easy Jawans and ESM, you all will get your dues in due course.

    Honorable/ PM/RM/FM

    Subject- 1- Due- Arrears of De-linking 33 years of Services only three Armed Forces Pensioners' Order of Apex Court yet not been Implemented.

    With Due respect and humble submission' I want say to lay down few lines for your Necessary kind Great consideration and 'After that for order 'implement ion please.

    1-We have seen read & Feels in connection of Above cited subjected 'Govt ' had issued Order for Implementation of De-linking of 33 years of For central Govt Employees & their Pensioners' Who retired Up-to 31-Dec-2005 .Circular C-149 Dated 06-04-2016 regarding case of Civil-Defense had already been Issued in month of April-2016 by CDA(P) Allahabad and has paid some month ago. In same case & comparison yet CIRCULAR NOT To ISSUED BY MoD' For further payments of Arrears.

    2- The Govt has decided Implement ion of '7th Central Pay commission and 7 month arrears to be paid along with Salary of Aug-2016. Many Major department has already issued Notification by(Dept)for further Payment and same have Implemented for same' But in case of Ex-Defense pensioners/ Employees yet not to been issued Notification By MoD & same would not be Implemented right now' Which are showing de-gradation and controversial with Armed Forces and their Pensioners..

    In view of above column-1 -What is reason' Circular had issued to For Defense / civil and to Implemented and In same Manner for to' Defense Pensioner not been issue yet' Circular 'Does not means' its a Double slandered of Govt ?.

    Anyway ' Our India is Great ' Where we are going'' Govt is doing the activities against Armed' Forces and there Pensioners for Only too' too' Demoralization and Degradation in comparison of Civil counter part. KYA HOGA IS DESH KA' JAHAN ARMED FORCES KE SATH BHI DIMANGI TOUR PE TOURCHER KIYA JA RAHA HAI' YEH BHI MODI JI KE SARKAR MEN' YEH UMMID TO HI NAHI . VERY SERIOUS MATTER JAI HIND.

  10. It is surprising that why govt worried abou refund of IT at the tune of one lakh crore. Sir , spend something outof it to the def personnel who had left the job at the age below 50 yrs of age and reeling under pressure as lower middle class to meet both end of the life. Most of them never made any tour & travel and not availed any amenities of the life and remain in the small brick surroundinngs with average food and attires

  13. Separate orders, I hope that it will incorporate the OROP scales on a different footing. As usual there will be a delay of half an year to an year. The DL 33 Scales of 6CPC are yet to materialize even after 3 months of its mlementation for others.
