The desperate move by the Government by filing a review petition against the dismissal order of Hon’ble Supreme Court to confirm the Order of Hon’ble High Court of Delhi to revise / refix the pension from 1.1.2006 instead of 24.09.2012 the date from which the Government accepted to re-fix the pension of Pre-2006 pensioners based on 6CPC pay fitment table applicable to central Government Employee has failed now as Hon’ble Supreme Court has now dismissed the Review Petition filed by the Government the Order of Supreme Court. It seems Pre-2006 Pensioners have won one another battle (must be the last as Apex Court’s Order in an review Petition would be final).

As most would know, the Govt had challenged before the Supreme Court the decision of the Delhi High Court wherein the judgement by the Central Administrative Tribunal granting benefit of rectification of pensionary anomalies from 01 January 2006 rather than 24 September 2012 was questioned. The order in effect and essence affected all central govt pensioners, including defence pensioners.The controversy had emanated from the fact whether the benefits of the correct pension were to flow from 01 Jan 2006 which is the date from which the 6th Central Pay Commission recommendations were implemented or from 24 Sept 2012 when the Govt had decided to remove the anomalies in the pension structure after the said Pay Commission. Of course, it was held by Courts that the removal of the anomalies shall date back to the date of the inception of the said anomalies and not any later artificial date.Incorrigible as it is, the Govt had gone ahead and filed a Review Petition in the matter urging the Supreme Court to review its order of dismissal of the SLP filed by the Central Govt.The Supreme Court has yesterday dismissed the Review Petition filed by the Govt in the matter.
What other tricks are in the offing?
