(b) Option No.1. Recommended by the 7th CPC, if that is beneficial for them.

(c) to determine the Pension on the basis of the suggestion placed by the Pension Department on 6.10.2016 i.e. extension of the benefit of pension determination recommended by the 5th CPC (viz. arriving at notional pay in the 7th CPC by applying formula for pay revision for serving employees in each Pay Commission and consequent pension fixation) to all pre-20I6 Pensioners/family pensioners, if that becomes beneficial to them.”
