NAIKS & EQUIVALENT RANK'S PENSION REVIEW
NAIKS WITH 15 YEARS SERVICE TO BE GIVEN 17 YEARS PENSION
The Government in the year 1998 sympathetically considered to pay 17 years pension to all those pre-86 and pre-96 Naiks and equivalent ranks in the Navy and Air Force who have completed service between 15 to less than 17 years.
The benefits of the order could not be availed by all due to various reasons. (The Govt. (MOD) and the PCDA(P) Allahabad are well aware as to how many Naiks had availed the benefits. As of now, the pensioner and the banks and Govt. have fully forgotten the issue. But whenever any revision of pension is taking place, the existing pension is required to be based on the above orders. Otherwise the revision of pension as per 6th CPC will not be correct and reduction in the revised pension will cumulative.
Therefore, the orders which were issued earlier to revise the pension w.e.f. certain dates i.e. 1.1.92 and from 1.10.96 are required to be taken up now. However in practical point of view it is not possible to revise because of the numbers involved more and all of them are not so much aware of their own entitlement.
In the circumstances, if the government feels sincerely, they can wave all the earlier instructions and fix a table for the revised pension based on these orders and publish it for implementation w.e.f. 01.01.2006 so that atleast from now onwards i.e. from 1.1.2006 these low paid paid pensioners will get some relief.
Based on this concept, our Team leader Sgt.Kandiah, (A retired Canara Bank Officer) had prepared the tables for ready reference. We request the MOD & CDA(P) Allahabad to accept these tables, verify and issue suitable instructions for implementation. If the basic pension as indicated in the tables, does not match with what they are drawing at present, then it must be stepped up to the level shown in the table and paid accordingly. Arrangements may also be made to pay the arrears for the respective periods as mentioned in the earlier orders.(Circular 210, 251, 257 & 350).
Pending our demand for OROP/Parity in pension, this may be done as an interim measure to provide some relief to the low paid pensioners.
