Revision of Pre-2006 Pension with effect from 01.01.2006 – Latest Development
Revision of Pre-2006 Pension with effect from 01.01.2006 – Bharat Pensioners Samaj writes to Minister of Personnel and Pensions
With regard to Principal CAT Order dated 01.11.2011 for revising Pre-2006 Pension with effect from 1st January 2006, contrary to Government’s decision to grant revision of Pre-2006 Pension from September 2012, Bharat Pensioners Samaj has written to Minister of State for Personnel, PG and Pensions Ministry. It is reported that Department of Pension and Pensioners welfare has taken a decision implementing the said judgement to implement it to the petitioners of the said case only, instead of revising Pension to all Pre-2006 Pensioners. The contention of Pre-2006 Pensioners is that the said order can not be considered as order In Personam as the same has been confirmed by Hon’ble High Court. Further the judgement has attained finality by virtue of Hon’ble Supreme Court’s decision to dismiss the SLP, Revision Applicaiton and as well as curatiive petitions filed by Department against the order of Hon’ble High Court.

While dismissing WP (C) No. 1535/2012 of UOI on 29-4-2013. Hon’ble Delhi High Court upheld the verdict of the CAT-PB.
