Certain disparities/anomalies left over by 6th CPC in the pension of about 12 lakhs pre-06 JCO's NCO's and OR's (PBOR's) and equivalents ranks of Navy & AF were rectified by a high level committee convened by the G of I under the chairmanship of Mr K M Chandrasekhar Cabinet Secretary (though much below the 3 decades lingering demand of OROP by Ex-Servicemen) was accepted & sanctioned by the G of I and have been implemented/paid wef 01.7.2009 ; with a gap/delay of three and half years from the cutoff date (01.6.2006) of 6th CPC ; due to budget constraint. About 12 lakhs pre-06 ESM pensioners PBOR's , appx. 97% of The Defence pensioners, suffered this financial loss. Whereas about 3% Officers ( ie Hony Lt and above) have been paid revised pension as per 6th CPC from cutoff date of 6th CPC , 01.6.2006.
One 'lacuna' disparity/anomaly was still left over in the family pension of Pre- 06 JCO's & equivalent ranks of Navy & AF. The family pension of the said JCO's was not revised proportionately/ rationally by the Cabinet Secretary K M Chandrasekhar Committee & Gov't. as mentioned below:-
FIRSTLY:- (Ordinary Family Pension)
It should have been revised in the same ratio / percentage of 5th CPC ie the percentage of JCO's pension & JCO's family pension.
For example:- Subedar Major Group 'A'
'X' (5th CPC ordinary rate family pension divided by 28 years service pension) ie :-
a) 2175 -:- 4784 = 46.464%
(6th CPC ordinary family pension divided by 28 years service pension)
b) 5250 divided by 13450 = 39.033%
A loss of 7.431% means Rs 1000/- pm appx.
The 6th CPC family pension of Sub Maj Gp 'A' 'X' :- to be enhanced as under-
c) 13450 X 46.464% =Rs 6250/-appx.
Say Rs 6250/- pm
So present ordinary rate family pension of Sub Maj Gp 'A' or 'X' should be revised to Rs 6250/- per month, instead Rs 5250/- which is paid now.
SECONDLY:-(Rationally with family pension of Hony Lt)
While taking rationally/ proportionally with family pension of Pre- 06 Hony Lt
As par 6th CPC & Cabinet Secy. K M Chandarsekhar Committee report:-
The family pension of Pre-06 Gp. 'A' 'X' Sub Major will be equal to:-
8100 -:- 13500 X 13450 = 8070/- pm
THIRDLY (Enhanced Family Pension)
Similarly enhanced rate of Sub Maj. Gp. 'A' or 'X' family pension in the ratio/ percentage of 5th CPC should be:-
3625 -:- 4784 X 13450 = Rs 10192/-pm
As above examples the family pension of all JCO's Group A, B & C or X, Y & Z and eq. ranks of Navy & AF be amended/increased accordingly ; the afore explained Lacuna/ disparity/ anomaly may please be rectified at the earliest wef cut off date of 6th CPC ie 01.6.2009
NB:- This is for verification and opinion of all concerned Pre-06 JCO's , eq ranks of Navy , AF and various Unions/NGO's of Ex-SM for joint / united petition on the said grievances please.
