THE NEED FOR REVISED CALCULATION OF ARREARS
The need for a revised calculation of additional 40% arrears of revised pension and arrears of revised pension from Sep 08 had arisen due to the issue of MOD letter No.16(6)/2008(1)D(Pension/Policy) dt.4.5.09 and MOD letter No.1(8)/2008-D(Pen/Policy) dated 12.6.09 in respect of Special family pensioners and Hon. Nb. Subedars after the issue of MOD letter dated 11.11.08.
Therefore it has become necessary to recalculate the arrears in respect of the recipients of minimum special family pensioners, Hon. Nb. Subedars and widows of Hon. Nb. Subedars.
A model calculation is inserted for a Hon. Nb. Sub. of Gp.’A’ with 24 yrs service. Other can follow this model for arriving at their arrears.
Similarly, a model calculation has been inserted for minimum special family pensioners also. All the widows of Sepoys, Naiks and Havildars who are eligible for special family pension from 01.01.06 can make use of this calculation.
Another important ranks affected by the wrong revision by the banks are Hon. Lts. And Hon. Capts.
A Hon. Lt. is eligible for a revised pension as per Annexure III is Rs.13,500 and Hon. Capt. Is Rs.13,850. Whereas the banks are paying Rs.11,865 for Hon. Lt. and Rs.12262 for Hon. Capt. As per Annexure I. The banks continue to pay less in spite of objections by the pensioners.
A model calculation for Hon. Capt. And Hon. Lt. is inserted which can be printed and handed over to the bank for payment of additional 40% arrears and arrears of revised pension from Sep 08.
