Retirement age for all paramilitary force fixed at 60: MHA Order 19.08.2019

Retirement age for all paramilitary force fixed at 60

All paramilitary personnel will now retire at a uniform age of 60 years irrespective of their ranks. 

The government on Monday issued orders to this effect following a Delhi High Court order issued in January this year, which had said that the current policy was "discriminatory and unconstitutional" and that it created two classes in the uniformed forces. 

This will come into force from the date of issue of the order, which is Monday.

At present, all personnel in the CISF and the Assam Rifles retire at the age of 60 while personnel from the ranks of constable to commandant in CRPF, BSF, ITBP and SSB retire at the age of 57. Those above commandant rank in CRPF, BSF, ITBP and SSB were retiring at the age of 60.

"According to the order issued by the ministry of home affairs, the personnel of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), Border Security Force (BSF), Indo-Tibetan Border Police force (ITBP), Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB), Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) and Assam Rifles will superannuate at the age of 60, instead of 57 years for certain rank of officials."

The order directed all the forces to "comply with the court order and amend provisions of rules."

It said those who have got interim stay will be deemed to have not superannuated and will be governed by the new order.

Those who have retired but did not approach any court will be governed by the court order, which had asked the government to decide a uniform age for retirement, and will be entitled to exercise options either for joining after returning all pensionary benefits, if received, or will have an option to have benefit of fitment of pension on completion of age of 60 years.

FORWARDING OF PPOs IN R/O 2019 RETIREES OFFRS/JCO AND ORs


Dear All Veterans

1.         The next hearing of OROP Case in Hon’ble Supreme Court is on 06 Aug 2019. IESM team is ready with strong arguments to present veterans' case. IESM has had a meeting with Honourable RM Sh Raj Nath Singh on 1 July 2019 and explained the anomalies of OROP. However no solution has come from MOD so for. 
2.        You are all aware that CGDA is attempting to put a spoke in OROP by quoting a false information that present day retirees of 2018/2019 are getting less pension than old retirees (post OROP) of 2013/2014. MOD counsel is likely to extend this argument in HSC on 6 Aug. This needs to be countered in following ways. 
        (a)    Legally it is not possible to reduce pay of any Government employee, hence if pension of 2018/19 retirees is less than pension of 2013/14 retirees that means that pay of 2018/19 employees of any rank is less than pay given to 2013/14 employees of similar rank with similar years of service. This means that present day employees of 2018/19 are getting less pay than what they deserve and hence it can be challenged. However if there is an isolated case because of some special reason that can be explained. But it cannot be quoted as an example to deny past retirees their genuine dues. 
        (b)        IESM will be able to call bogie of CGDA with  EPPO (of 2013/14 and earlier and also of 2018/19) in our hand to convince HSC that CGDA/DESW/MOD are attempting to deny genuine dues to Armed Forces Personnel by misquoting the information to HSC. These PPOs are not available with us as of now. 
(3)        IESM has also read the interpretation of Brig Vidyasagar and is in agreement with him that CGDA is attempting to cancel already approved OROP rather than equalising it in July 2019 as per Govt letter dated 7 Nov 2015.
(4)        Veterans are aware that IESM plea is that five year equalisation is not acceptable as it is putting past retirees at loss for five years and hence equalisation must be done every year. 

IESM therefore needs these PPOs to strengthen our arguments for hearing on 6 Aug. 
In view of above all veterans are requested to send PPOs ( 2012/13/14 and 2018/19 period)


With regards,                                           
 Yours Sincerely,

OROP RTI INFORMATION


Office of the CGDA, Ulan Batar Road, Palam, Delhi Cantt-10

Sub: Re-fixation of pension under OROP - reg

        Ministry may kindly refer to their ID No.1(1)/2019/D (Pen/Pol) d/d 28.03.19 forwarding a copy of TRIPAS letter No.C/7026/VII CPC/84/OROP d/d 11.03.19. However, copy of ibid TRIPAS letter has not been found enclosed. It is requested to kindly forward the same.

2.     Further, vide Para 3 of ibid ID, Ministry has requested to start preparatory work for re-fixation of pension under OROP as per para 3(v) of MoD letter dated 7.11.2015. In order to begin work, Ministry is requested to clarify the following:

(a)   W.r.t. Para 3 of GoI, MoD letter dt. 7.11.15, it may be confirmed whether the same methodology is to be employed for calculating OROP rates viz. average of minimum and maximum pension. If so, the year from which data of current retirees is to be used may be specified. 

(b)   OROP was implemented w.e.f. 01.07.2014. Similarly date of effect of this next round of revisions may kindly be intimated.

(c)    It may be recalled that several issues and anomalies regarding OROP implementation has been raised earlier. Government has referred three (03) major categories of these issues to a One Man Judicial Commission appointed vide No. 12 (1)/2014-D (Pen/Pol) d/d 14.12.2015. Various ESM associations had also made reference to this OMJC. The report of OMJC is pending with the Ministry. It may be clarified whether any of the recommendations of the OMJC are to be factored into the new calculations.   

3.    It may be mentioned here that there have been several developments since the issue of OROP orders in 2015-16. The most significant is the implementation of the recommendations of the VIIth CPC. The impact of these recommendations with respect to revision of defence pensions was not factored into the OROP orders. As per the VII CPC orders, pension revision is to be undertaken by two methods and pension disbursed by the more beneficial of the two. The first method requires multiplication of pension as on 31.12.2015 by a factor of 2.57. This has been done by PDAs. The other method requires notional revision of pay across subsequent Pay Commission scales to arrive at a notional pay (and pension) under VIIth CPC scales. This revision has raised the following issues:  

(a)   The notional pay formula brings all past pensioners to current rates, almost as if they were serving under VIIth CPC. This is also the formula used in various Court judgments seeking to equate past pensioners with current retirees. For example, Hon’ble Supreme Court judgment in SPS Vains vs. UoI (2008) case and in DS Nakara case. As such it is a matter for consideration as to whether any logic exists to initiate the process of OROP revision once the pension of past and current pensioners has been equated w.e.f.1.1.2016.  

(b)  The notional pay based revision in respect of defence pensioners has just commenced. The final pension of past pensioners (as on 1.1.2016) is not available until this is completed. Therefore, data for comparing past pensioner with current pensioners is incomplete to that extent.

(c)   Ministry may also kindly refer to WP No. 419/2016 – Indian Ex-Servicemen Movement and others vs. UoI. While preparing to brief Ld ASG, Ministry had requested to compare pension under various Pay Commissions. The result was forwarded to Ministry vide this HQrs UO dated 23.08.2018 (copy enclosed). The sample study indicated that application of multiplication factor to OROP pension has created an anomaly whereby past pensioners are drawing higher pension that those who have retired between 1.7.2014 and 31.12.2015 and post 1.1.2016 retirees. It may be recalled that Service HQrs have also forwarded proposals citing this anomaly and seeking protection of pension of current retirees with respect to OROP pension. If this anomaly turns out to be widespread, the logic of revising pension of past retirees to bring them to the level of current pensioners would not subsist.  

4.   Ministry is requested to give directions of how to proceed further in view of the points mentioned above.

Sub: Writ Petition (Civil) No. 419/2016 – IESM & Others Vs UOI & others

Ref:MoD D (ESW) letter No.4 (5)/2016-D (Pen/Legal) dated 30.07.18

      Ministry may please refer to their above mentioned letter, calling for a comparative table indicating amounts of pension drawn under various Pay Commissions with reference to OROP.

2.   In this regard it is submitted that calculation has been made, as a representative sample, for two ranks of JCOs/ORs (Havildar and Naib Subedar) and two ranks of Commissioned Officers (Lt Col & Brigadier). The calculation sheet is attached as Annexure A & B for JCOs & Ors and Commissioned Officers respectively. 

3.   It is submitted that since 6th CPC, two revisions have been made for pre-2006 PBOR pensioners i.e. w.e.f. 01.09.2009 (CSC-2009) and 24.09.2012 (CSC-2012) with the intention to bring them at par with current pensioners. In addition, OROP benefits were given w.e.f. 01.07.2014. On analysing the data of post OROP pensioners, it is seen that: -

(a) Out of 668 retirees in the period 01.07.2014 to 31.12.2015 in the rank of Havildar, more than 20% of post OROP retirees are drawing pension less than OROP rate i.e. OROP pension is higher than pension of future retirees.

(b)  The difference is more prominent in the rank of Nb. Sub where more than 95% of post-OROP retired Nb. Subedars are drawing less pension than OROP rates.

(c)  More than 95% of post 01.01.2016 retirees in the rank of Nb. Sub draw less pension than the revised pension amount of OROP beneficiaries.

4.   This indicated that a significant proportion of post OROP retirees are getting less pension than past pensioners whose pension has been ameliorated as per OROP.
