Subsequently, vide this Department's OM No.38/37/2016-P&PW(A) dated 11th May, 2017, it was decided that the revised pension/family pension w.e.f 01.01.2016 in respect of all Central civil pensioners/family pensioners, including CAPF’s who retired/died prior to 01.01.2016 and drawing pension/family pension under CCS(Pension) Rules may be revised by notionally fixing their pay in the pay matrix recommended by 7thCPC in the level corresponding to the pay in the pay scale/pay band and grade pay at which they retired/died. This will be done by notional pay fixation under each intervening Pay Commission based on the Formula for revision of pay. While fixing pay on notional basis, the pay fixation formulae approved by the Government and other relevant instructions on the subject in force at the relevant time shall be strictly followed.
