Subject:- Payment of arrears of pensions to Pre-2006 pensioners w.e.f. 01.01.2006.
In pursuance of DP&PW OM No. 38/37/08-P&PW (A) dated 28.01.2013, pension/family pension of some pensioners/family pensioners were revised w.e.f. 24.09.2012 through individual amendment authorities.
Now, in pursuance of the orders of the Hon’ble Supreme Court, DP&PW vide its OM No. 38/37/08-P&PW (A) dated 30.07.2015 has decided to grant the benefit of revision of pension/ family pension w.e.f. 01.01.2006 in such cases. Keeping in view the sensitivity and urgency of the matter it has been to issue CPCC-wise amendment authority for such cases which have already been revised w.e.f. 24.09.2012 whose requisite details are available with CPAO in batches having name of pensioner, PPO number, bank account number, No. & date of last SSA issued as per DP & PW OM dated-28.01.2013.
While calculating the arrears following points require special attention:-
i) Change in the rate of pension/family pension during the period from 01.01.2006 to 23.09.2012 which may be due to death of the pensioner, completion of the period of enhanced family pension and grant of additional pension on attaining the age of 80 years. It may be ensured that the pensioner/family pensioner get the benefit of revised pension from the due date whether it may be 01.01.2006 or any later date with accurate rate of pension/ family pension.
ii) The cases of dual family pension should not be mixed with these revision cases as the same have also been effective from 24.09.2012.
Heads of all CPPCs are advised to give special attention to credit the respective pension accounts at the earliest.
