Delay in preferment of pension claims in respect of normal discharge PBOR of Army, Navy and Air Force

Delay in preferment of pension claims in respect of normal discharge PBOR of Army, Navy and Air Force: PCDA(P)

Sub: Delay in preferment of pension claims in respect of normal discharge PBOR of Army, Navy and Air Force.

Ref: This office circular No. 540 dated 11/05/2015.

Under the existing orders, claims for service pension in respect of personnel below officer rank are required to be submitted to the pension sanctioning authority concerned, viz. PCDA (P), Allahabad in respect of Army, PCDA (N), Mumbai in respect of Navy and JCDA (AF), New Delhi in respect of Air Force, at least four months in advance of their retirement from service. This arrangement has been made with a view to ensure that the pensionary awards in respect of the personnel are notified in the PPO well before their discharge/retirement and the pension certificates are handed over to them before they are discharged.

It has been observed that above time schedule is not being adhered to by ROs resulting in delay in finalization of pensionary awards in respect of PBORs. Higher authorities have taken a serious view on the matter.

It is, therefore, requested that time frame for submission of pension claims to this office may strictly be followed in order to avoid delay in finalization of pensionary awards to the retiring personnel. This would definitely help in reducing the CAT/Court cases, interest payment etc at a later stage.
Please acknowledge receipt.

2. As per provisions contained in above Government letter dated 25th Aug 2015, it has been found that the first payment of pension after retirement gets delayed mainly due to two reasons i.e. (i) due to delay in receipt of intimation by the pensioner that pension papers have reached the PDAs and (ii) due to delay on the part of the pensioner in approaching the bank for submission of undertaking/non-re-employment/re-employment certificate. In order to simplify the pension payment procedure, it has been decided that required undertaking/status of non-reemployment/re-employment after retirement may be obtained by the Services HQrs/Record Offices from the retiring Armed Forces Officer and Personnel along with other documents before his retirement.

3. The undertaking/certificate shall be forwarded to the pension disbursing agencies along with Pension Payment Order by the Pension Sanctioning Authorities concerned in the case of Commissioned Officers and Record Offices concerned in the case of PBORs following the usual procedure. In case of pensioner drawing pension from agencies other OFFICE OF THE PR.

4. In view of the above, all PDAs are hereby authorized to credit the Pensionary Awards notified in favour of the pensioner into his/her bank account as and when due if said undertaking/ certificate is received along with the pension documents. The pensioner would no longer be required to visit the pension disbursing agency to activate the first payment of pension. The pensioners will be required to be called to the paying Bank Branches/DPDOs only if the undertaking/documents submitted by Service HQrs in the case of ICOs (through PSA)/Record Office in the case of PBORs were incomplete. Submission of Certificates prescribed for continuation of monthly pension/payment of dearness relief, shall be followed as hitherto fore.

5. Further, Aadhaar Card number based biometric verification system for pensioners as an additional option for submission of life certificate by the pensioners has been introduced by the Government since Nov 2014. 

All the pension disbursing agencies are hereby requested to accept e-life certificate of the pensioners as annual life certificate which pensioner can submit online to his pension disbursing agency by registering themselves on www.jeevanpraman.gov.in

Office Memorandum

Subject: Cases of promotion taking place in the pre-revised pay structure between 1.12006 and the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rules ,2008 and the subsequent merger of the pre-revised pay scales of the promotional and the feeder posts in a common Grade- fixation of Regarding.

The undersigned is directed to Say that consequent upon coming into force of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, which were notified on 298.2008 but are effective from 1.1.2006, fixation of pay on promotion on or after 1.1,2006 is carried out as per Rule 13 thereof. This Rule is invoked only in cases of promotion frotn one Grade pay to another in the revised pay structure.

2. In terms of Section I of Part-A of the First Schedule of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, which provides for revised pay structure in the form of applicable pay Bands and Grades pay corresponding to various pre-revised pay Scales, certain pre-revised pay Scales have been merged in a common Grade pay in the revised pay structure w.e.f. 1.1.2006, In view of this, the posts in those pre-revised pay scales which have been merged in a common Grade pay w.e.f. 1,1.2006, are normally required to be merged even if these posts constituted feeder and promotional grades in the pre-revised pay structure.

3. However, in cases where such merger of feeder and promotional posts in the wake of their come to lie in the Same grade pay has not taken place due to administrative reasons and the posts continue to retain their promotional and feeder character as per the relevant Recruitment Rules, this Ministry issued instructions vide OM 10/2/2011-E.III A dated 7.1.2013 providing for fixation of pay on promotion in such cases under Rule 13 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2008 subject to the conditions laid down therein.

4. Now, instances have been brought to the notice of this Ministry where the feeder and promotional posts have been merged in view of the merger of the pre- revised pay scales applicable to the erstwhile feeder and promotional posts in a common grade/post after the promulgation of CCS(RP) Rules), 2008, due to which the character of posts being promotional and feeder grades as existing during the period from 1.12006 to the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 stood rescinded with retrospective effect from 1.12006 and, consequently, a question has been raised as to whether Rule 13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 may apply for fixation of pay on promotion taking place during the period between 1.1.2006 and the date of notification of the said Rules, when the fixation of pay was actually done as applicable in the event Of promotion in the pre-revised Structure.

5. The matter has been considered in the light of the provisions contained in the OM No. 20020/4/2010-Estt.D dt.13.9.2012 issued by the Department of Personnel & Training, which has been issued in the context of the posts/grades merged in pursuance Of the recommendations of the 6th Central pay Commission. This OM provides, inter-alia, that the Status of a government servant as on 29.8.2008 including those who have earned promotion between 1.12006 and 29.09.2008 will be protected as appointment/promotions are made as per the provisions of the recruitment rules applicable to the post/grade.

6. Accordingly, it has been decided that in cases where promotion took place in the pre-revised pay structure during the period between 1.12006 and the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 when the pre-revised and revised pay scales were different and the posts carried the character of feeder and promotional grades, pay fixation on such promotion Shall be allowed under Rule 13 of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, subject to the following conditions:-

(i) The promotion had taken place between 1.1.2006 and the date of notification Of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 as per the Recruitment Rules then in vogue, which clearly provided for such posts being promotional grade for the feeder grade from where the promotion took place and where the posts were subsequently merged in a single post/grade consequent upon promulgation of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008.

(ii) FR. 22 (r) I), which was applicable for fixation Of pay on promotion before promulgation of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, was invoked for fixation
of pay in these cases in the pre-revised structure during the period between 1.1.2006 and the date of notification of the CCS(RP) Rules 2008.

(iii) The concerned employees had opted to come over to the revised pay structure from a date occurring prior to the date Of notification of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008.

(iv) The concerned Recruitment Rules have been amended subsequently to provide for merger of these grades into a single grade/post.
7. This order applies only in case of promotions carried out in the pre-revised structure durirg 1.1.2006 and the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008. Thus, the benefit of Rule 13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 would not apply in Cases of appointment to the post which was in the higher pay scale in the pre-revised pay structure, where such appointment is made after the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008.

8. In its application to the employees serving under the Indian Audit and Accounts Department, this order issues with the concurrence Of the office Of CMG.
