DISABILITY PENSION ARREARS AS PER MOD LETTER DT.18/5/2016






ARREARS FOR DISABILITY PENSIONER IN LINE WITH CIR 547.FOR PRE-2006 RETIREES: Auth::MOD-DEPT OF DESW No.161/2014/D(Pen/Pol)dated 18-5-2016

The Rate of Disability element was  fixed Rate in the V th PC  and  at the  beginning of
VIth CPC.
It was  as per CDA circular 410:  Fixed Rates.
For Sepoy   to Havildar………3510   for 100% Disability  from 1-1-2006
For Nb.Sub to Sub.Major……..4300    for 100%
For Commissioned Officers       And Hony.Officers…  5880  for 100%

These Rates were changed  to percentage  wise:  CDA Cir- 456.

That is 30% on Minimum pay band  of Rank and Group as per Cir 456.

For Example:   A Havildar    Group- X 
     Pay band-  5200-20200   Grade pay- 2400   MSP: 2000
     And   X gp- pay=1400

Minimum Pay= 5200+2400+2000 +1400=11000
DE- 100%...  .   at 30%.of  min.pay.........= 11000 X 30%=3300
But,  the  existing  DE  for Hav was   as per Cir 410…3510, hence  the same rate continued.
So,  there is no benefit for the rank of Sepoy to Havildar.

For Nb.Sub and above there is difference. The rates are:
Sepoy to  Havildar……all Groups…………3510  for 100% DE.
                                       GroupX      GP+Y      GP-Z
NB.SUB………………..5070           4650       4650
SUB…………………..   5190           4770       4770
Sub.Major………………5250           4830       4830.
Hony.Lt                            8100
Hony Capt………….       8310.


Then again these rates were changed as 30% of Minimum Fitment Tables,
as Pay in the Pay Band – CDA Cir 542
 taking the Base as per SAI/1/S/2008.RATES FOR 3 services.
For Example:   Hav- Gp-X     Scale: 4150-100-5650
Pay in the pay band_  4150X1.86=7720+2800+200+1400=13920
For 100% DE , it is 30%   of 13920  =    13920X30%=4176
Like wise for all Ranks and group for all 3 services.
Now as per MOD Ltr dated 18-5-2016, the difference between 542 and 456
 may be paid arrears From 1-1-2006 to 24-9-2012
Rate  as per CDA Cir 542; For Army:
Rank                 Group-X      Group-Y        Group_Z
Sep…….            3672             3510              3510
Naik                    3855             3510              3510
Havidar               4176             3510              3510
Nb.Sub                5502             4998              4764
Sub:                     6168             5664              5424
Su.Maj                 6507             5808              5724
Hon.Lt;                9279        For Hony.Capt:  9687

BENEFIT OF CDA CIR 547 TO SPECIAL AND LIBERALISED FAMILY PENSIONERS.:
MOD-DESW Letter No: 16(01)/2014/D(Pen/Pol) dated 18-5-2016.
The Rate of Special Family pension was fixed Rate during    Vth CPC.
It was:   Sepoy to Havildar;   2550-  for Group-X
             Nb.Sub…………..    3318
              Sub……………….. 3897
              Su.Maj…………..    4440
For Hony.Lt……………….   6300
       Hony.Capt……………    6510
During VIth CPC,  the same was revised as consolidated method- cir 397, Annexure-I
Example:  Sep:   2550.00
 50   % merger…    1275.00
24% DA……….  918.00
40% fixation…    1020.00
            Total……5763.00……..cir 397-Annex-I
Like wise for all the Ranks.
Then as per CDA cir 410,  it was revised as Rs.7000 minimum-
Then As per CIR 456, it was revised  as 60% of Minimum Pay Band. For the Rank and group.-
No benefit for Sep- Hav.
For Nb.Sub-GP-X- Pay scale:9300-34800
Minimum  scale: 9300+4200+2000+1400=16900
Special Family pension – 60% of 16900= 10140- Ref- Cir 456 Table No-3
Same way for all Ranks and Group of all the 3 Services. 

Then as perCDA cir  542 it was revised as 60% of Pay in the pay Band
On the Basis of SIA-01/S/08  by multiplying by factor 1.86 on minimum.
Eg.for Nb.Sub – Gp-X      Pay scale-5770-140-8290
5770 X1.86=10740 +4200+2000+1400=18340
Special Family pension- 60% of 18340=11004- w.e.f 24-9-2012
Like wise for all the Ranks and groups  and for all the 3 services.
Again As per CDA cir 503, the Rates are arrived according to Rank , group and Length of service , but the minimum rate is maintained. This is with effect from 24-9-2012.

Now, as per the MOD letter, this Benefit, Rate is to be given with effect from 1-1-2006 in stead of 24-9-2012.  like  Cir 547.and arrears to be paid .
Here, the Rate as per CDA cir 503 Minus 456 to be arrived and arrears to be calculated.
Say for example:      Nb.Sub-  Group- X   -  QS-15 yrs
 As per Cir 503-11004
As per cir 456  -10140
     Difference        864.00   this is to be paid from 1-1-2006 to 23-9-2012
Arrears=   864 X 103.65=89554.
In the same method for all the ranks and group, the arrears cir-503-456 to be calculated.

Senior citizen welfare fund: Norms out; 9 member panel to administer

19 May 2016Senior citizen welfare fund: Norms out; 9 member panel to administer

The Ministry of Finance released the rules for creation of Senior Citizens Welfare Fund, which will have funds from unclaimed deposits in small savings schemes including Post Office Savings Accounts, Public Provident Fund and Employees’ Provident Fund within one year.

The ministry released the notification dated March 18 about the fund, which will be utilised for schemes for the promotion of the welfare of senior citizens in line with the National Policy on Older Persons and the National Policy on Senior Citizens.

The ministry stated the Fund shall be an interest bearing account, administered by a Committee consisting of nine members. The committee will be headed by secretary in the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment who shall be the ex-officio chairperson along with officials from Department of Financial Services, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Ministry of Rural Development and Ministry of Labour and Employment among others.

Finance minister Arun Jaitley in his Budget speech last year had proposed the creation of Senior Citizens Welfare Fund saying, “there are unclaimed deposits of about Rs 3,000 crore in the PPF, and approximately Rs 6,000 crore in the EPF corpus. I have proposed the creation of a Senior Citizen Welfare Fund, in the Finance Bill, for appropriation of these amounts to a corpus which will be used to subsidize the premiums of vulnerable groups such as old age pensioners, BPL card-holders, small and marginal farmers and others.”

Every institution which has the unclaimed deposits in their small savings accounts shall prepare list of unclaimed deposits in the accounts and notify to the public. “The Institution shall identify the unclaimed amounts on annual basis and make transfers to the Fund on or before the 1st day of March, each year. The transfers by the Institutions shall be made on a net basis, namely, the unclaimed deposits minus the claims accepted in accordance with the law for the time being in force, of the accounts whose balances have already been transferred to the Fund,” the notification said.

The nodal Ministry for the Fund shall be the Ministry of Social Justice. The rate of interest for the money lying in the Fund shall be determined and notified by the Ministry of Finance on an annual basis, the notification said.

ONE WOMAN GAVE BIRTH TO 5 CHILDREN IN ONE DELIVERY



 A woman  delivered 5 children at one stroke.
 We feel that this is the first time such delivery had taken place.



Mother of quintuplets reveals babies in photo shoot
Kim Tucci — who gave birth to quintuplets in January 2016 — has released pictures from a photo shoot of her babies. Believe it or not, Keith, Ali, Penelope, Tiffany and Beatrix were conceived naturally — a one in 55 million chance.
She, in fact, gave birth to them in just 2 minutes, assisted by a team of 50 doctors and nurses. Tucci told an Australian current affairs programme, 60 Minutes, that her body was shutting off during the pregnancy. Due to mounting health risks to both her and her yet-to-be-born children, she was initially given a choice of saving two babies, while terminating the others. "No-one thought I could do it, and I did, I showed everyone in my life," Tucci said in the interview.

YET ANOTHER CASE OF ADVERSE EFFECT OF SANGAM PPO.






Smt. Petchithai (left) with smt.Lakshimi W/O Late Hav (right) expressing her thanks to our Trust.


One widow was being paid family pension vide PPO.No: S/R/MODP/ 626/2006 AFTER DEMISE OF HER HUSBAND.
Smt.Petchithai  W/O Late  Sep. Appadurai ( 2556551)
PDA: Syndicate Bank, Tirunelveli-Dist, TN.
Now  a Sangam Project PPO No. s/corr/6th cpc/ 362681/2014 is issued in the name of deceased sepoy, in that there is no mention of family pension.
Hence, the PDA has stopped paying pension to the widow.

On enquiry by the widow, the PDA has told her that there is no family pension in the Sangam PPO, hence we have stopped pension. Also they have questioned the widow, how she was being paid pension so long.

The aggrieved widow came and reported the same to us.
On verifying the available documents with her we noticed that the JOINT Notification is available in her favour.
Immediately we contacted the PDA and informed that as the Joint Notification is available, she is eligible for family pension  and the Sangam PPO should not be considered  as per CDA cir 163  and 181.
These circulars say that, if there is any variation in the Sangam PPO, it should not be acted up on, the PPO to be sent back or a clarification to be sought from Record Office / PCDA.
We have also reported this stoppage of pension to CPPC, Syndicate Bank for immediate restoration of pension.
The aggrieved  widow was very happy of our action and thanked us for this help.

Our Trust is also happy in helping a widow  due to ill effect of Sangam PPO>

LIFE TIME ARREARS OF OROP - NOKs TO NOTE.



THE IMPORTANCE OF L.T.A. WITH O.R.O.P.





THE IMPORTANCE OF L.T.A. WITH O.R.O.P.

The undrawn pension of a deceased pensioner paid to the Family pensioner or the Nominee or his Legal heirs is called LTA.  Since the O.R.O.P arrears are paid in Four installments, and most of the beneficiaries are aged, it is likely that they may miss the remaining installments.  Therefore, the legal heirs of the aged pensioners are to be more vigilant in claiming the O.R.O.P arrears as LTA.  Every pensioner must submit nomination or convert their pension account into Joint account (E or S) immediately.  They should also inform their legal heirs about the amount of future installments and probable payment dates.

The Family pensioner or the Nominee or the Legal heirs are normally not aware of the dues to them after the death of the pensioner.  The Banks even after getting the information about the death of the pensioner continue to credit monthly pension till the next life certificate.  In some cases, the family continue to draw pension through ATM for many months.

The mistake is detected only when the family approaches for family pension.  In the case of death of a family pensioner, the over paid pension after the death of the family pensioner remain as it is with the bank.  None of the legal heirs comes forward to close the account. In normal days, it is ignored as the amount involved is less.  But now the significance of LTA has become more important for the family pensioner because of the O.R.O.P arrears which is due in half yearly installments.

O.R.O.P has been implemented from 1.7.2014.  The arrears of OROP of a pensioner who died before receiving the same will have to be paid to his wife as LTA.  In case of a family pensioner, the OROP arrears will be paid to the Nominee or Legal heir.  As on today, none of the bank will pay the OROP arrears of a deceased pensioner of their own.  Unless and until, the concerned people are more vigilant, and claim they will never get.

In addition to O.R.O.P. arrears, there are other arrears like Pre 2006 (Cir.547 arrears) is also to be paid.  Also one more order on Delinking of 33 years service for full pension is also likely to come.  All these arrears involves considerable amount.  Therefore, it is informed that all the defence pensioners and their families are to be more vigilant to claim these arrears.  Otherwise they will lose forever.

WONDER- A LAMB BORN WITH HUMAN FACE.


 It is wonder , A goat has given birth to a Human faced lamb.

Born With A Human Face Sends Village Into Meltdown

27 April 2016




View photos
This goat born with the face of a human baby has provoked a bidding war as people desperately tried to buy it from the farmer it belonged to.
The newborn sadly did not live for long after its birth but it didn’t stop some from wanting to buy the carcass of the so-called fawn - the mythical fusion of goat and animal.
Farmer Ibrahim Basir refused all cash offers after the goat was born on his property in Felda, Malaysia, instead choosing to hand it over to the Veterinary Services Department so it could be studied.

View photos
Mystery: The goat’s appearance has so far not been explained (CEN)
Ibrahim told local media he was shocked when he found out that one of his goats had given birth to a kid that had the features of a human baby.
He said: “When I went to check, I was quite shocked but fascinated too as its face, nose, short legs and even the condition of its soft body seemed like that of a human baby, whereas the light brown fur covering its whole body resembles that of a goat.”
He added: "We kept the carcass in a polystyrene box filled with ice cubes before taking it to the district veterinary office at around noon yesterday.”
Ibrahim thinks the animals looks were a result of being trampled by its mother.
