ATTENSION VETERAN BROTHERS SERIES-17

REVISION OF PENSION AND PAYMENT OF ARREARS



Exwel Trust conducts Pension camp.
REVISION OF PENSION AND PAYMENT OF ARREARS TO DEFENCE PENSIONERS AND FAMILY PENSIONERS BY BANKS.
The recommendations of the 6th CPC were not implemented in true spirit.  As a result many anomalies were brought out and now after 10 years, they are being sorted out through various Judicial pronouncements and Cabinet committee recommendations.
1.      After 6th CPC, the first revision was done on 1.7.2009 only for  Defence Pensioners.
2.      Then again from 24.9.2012 another revision was done.
3.      Then a Court judgment provided revision of pension from 1.1.2006 (Cir.547)
4.      Then OROP was implemented from 1.7.2014.
5.      And now, 7th CPC implementation from 1.1.2016.
6.      In the meantime, a Judgment for Delinking of 33 years for full pension for pre 2006 pensioners  was received to pay arrears from 1.1.2006.
Likewise, the Defence Pension has undergone many changes in between the pay commissions.
It is not possible for the Banks to revise the pensions of all and pay arrears for various reasons.  The pensioners are also not in a position to track the changes and claim to the bank.
In the circumstances, it is possible that some pensioners might have missed certain revision of their pension and arrears.  It is the responsibility of the individual pensioners to verify their entitlement and claim to the bank.
In order to help them to find out the arrears, we have identified the arrears by the number of CDA Circulars and indicated the calculation in our website: www.exweltrust.in.  Those who want to verify their pension revision and payment of arrears according to various CDA circulars are requested to visit our website www.exweltrust.in and just feed in the following particulars to know the eligibility of arrears and revision if any. You need not refer any circular.
                                                Your Name
                                                Rank
                                                Qualifying Service
                                                Group
                                                Date of Discharge
                                                Date of Birth (For Additional Pension)
                                                Date of Death of husband in case of Family Pensioner.
The following important CDA Circulars provides various arrears and revision of pension.  The arrears are identified by the CDA Circular numbers.
1.      Cir.547 dt.11.9.2015. Arrears on pension re-fixation from 1.1.2006 to 23.9.2012.
2.      Cir.548 dt.11.9.2015  Arrears on pension re-fixation for officers. From 1.1.2006.
3.      Cir.560 dt.8.6.2016  Arrears of casualty pension awards  from 1.1.2006.
4.      Cir.567 dt.16.9.2016 Arrears of enhanced rate of Ord. Family pension from 1.1.2006.
5.      Cir.568 dt.17.10.2016 Delinking arrears from 1.1.2006.
6.      Cir.555 dt.4.2.2016 OROP Revision and arrears from 1.7.2014.
7.      Cir.570 dt.31.10.2016 Revision of 7 CPC and arrears from 1.1.2016.
Now some of the Banks started paying arrears.  Unfortunately, the banks do not indicate what type of arrears and does not provide the calculation sheet.  In the circumstances, if any pensioner wants to verify their arrears and revision, please visit our website www.exweltrust.in get your arrears print out.  Make a claim to the bank if there is any difference.
SOI; Sincere thanks to our -indianexserviceman.blog.

VETERANS MEET RAKSHA RAJYA MANTRI.



 

 

Indian Armed Forces Ex Servicemen are Not Satisfied with OROP - Veteran Dilip Hiray

Dear All,                         


Below are the salient points where Indian Armed Forces are not Satisfied with OROP. These points are handed over to Raksha Rajya Mantri Dr Subhash  Bhamare during his visit at Malegaon on 28 Oct 2016.

1. OROP as per definition given by hon’ble Raksha Rajya Mantri is: Uniform pension to all defence pensioners irrespective of date of retirement for (a) same rank for (b) same length of service and for (c) same group. All benefits conferred on the present pensioners to be passed on to past pensioners.

2. Koshyari Committee Report defined OROP and approved by the two houses of the PARLIAMENT

3. The Definition accepted by the NDA – II Govt is to give same pension to all pensioners of same rank for same length of service irrespective of date of retirement. In simple words a Havildar of 20 years’ service of group Y retired in 1996 is to be given the same pension as another Hav of same length of service and same group who retire in 2016 or 2026. That means unless pensions are equalised every year, it is not OROP.

4. OROP Vs One Time Increase. By giving pension equalisation once in five years NDA – II Govt gave only One Time Increase by making pensions of all those who retired prior to 2013 i.e from 1947 to 2012 equal to pension of those who retired in 2013 in the same rank, same length of Service and same Group X or Y. The UPA I & II Govt also gave One Time Increase to JCOs and OR once in Jul 2009 and Sep 2012. For 11 lakh JCOs & OR pensioners, UPA Gvot gave Rs 10,257 crores i.e.much more than what NDA – II is giving today.

5. Date of Implementation. NDA – II Govt came to power after general elections held in Apr – May 2014. The financial year commences in Apr 2014 but OROP is implemented only w.e.f. Jul 2014 on the specious plea that they assumed power only on 26 May 2016. Did the NDA – II Govt collect taxes from Jul 2014 or from Apr 2014?

6. Base Year. If OROP is to be implemented as per approval given by the Parliament in 2014 then the base year is to be 2014 and not 2013.

7. Average of Maximum and Minimum. The pension of JCOs and OR was always on the Maximum of the fitment table as per approval given by President of India in Circular 430 and Circular 501. Why then pensions have been fixed at Average of Maximum and Minimum thereby depriving arrears to all pensioners?

8. OROP Not Avaialable to Pre Mature Retirees. Armed Forces by structure are pyramidal with few vacancies in the top. Therefore when there are no promotional avenues available the soldiers must be permitted to leave after serving for minimum period to earn pensoin. Then why such Premature soldiers are denied OROP?

9. Pension Fixation in OROP. Pension fixation adopted by Defence Accounts Department (DAD) is absolutely faulty. If they did not find a soldier of a particular qualifying service retired in 2013 but found one with longer service then they took the average of such longer qualifying service and reduced 3% per year to fix pension of junior in that rank i.e Say Naik with 15 years has not retired in 2013 and Naik with 20 years retired in 2013. The average of maximum and minimum of Naiks with 20 years’ service is taken and pension of Naik with 15 years’ service is reduced @ 3% per year to fix pension. Fine. But the same method should have been adopted if Naik of 24 years’ service is not found retired in 2013. They should have taken pension of Naik of 20 years’ service and increased pension of Naik with 24 years’ service @ 3% per year.

10. Lesser Disability Pension. All Soldiers who are disabled are given pension as per the rank they hold. Even if a Sepoy of 3 years is disabled his disability pensions is fixed as if he served for 33 years. But in OROP by linking length of service to the rank, soldiers with lesser service will get much lesser disability pension in OROP.

11. Lesser Special Family and Liberalised Family Pensioners. Earlier if a Sepoy was martyred in war or war like operations, his widow gets pension as per the rank. But in OROP by linking to the length of service widow of Sepoy who put in just 5 years’ service will get much lesser pension compared to another widow of Sepoy who put in 17 years’ service.

12. OROP Arrears Not Paid to 1.5 Lakh Pensioners. DAD personnel do not know ground realities. They directed banks not to pay OROP arrears if the PPO does not contain rank, length of service and Group X or Y. Group X pensioners get higher pension than Group Y. Since pensioners who retired in 1950s and 1960s did not have group endorsed in their Corr PPOs they are not paid OROP arrears by banks. When banks give details of such pensioners to PCDA (Pensions) Allahabad as per Appendix X of Circular 555, the PCDA have not given the group by searching the old PPOs and records held with them. Documents of pensioners cannot be destroyed and are to be kept in perpetuity. PCDAs have also not digitised their records in spite of getting funds since 1986. PCDAs are totally responsible for 1.5 lakh pensioners not getting arrears even after eight months.

13 . While giving orop they have purely considered only Army ranks not all the three services. JWO of y group having completed 32 years of service in IAF . While considering OROP of JCO in Army having 28 years of service maximum. In this way JWO lost 04 year service .It has happened with lot of personnel of this rank . It seems to be purely injustice.

14.  It's not only with JWO rank served for 38 yrs 07 months and retired as Honorary Flying Officer but pension in OROP has been fixed along with 32 yrs length of service.

15. Many Jawans are not getting their Last Rank's pension in spite of 6CPC recommendation and even after the Judgment from Hon. Supreme Court on Pay and Pension from 01.01.2006. How can it be OROP once the government is paying the Lower Rank's pension which is quite less than the entitled normal pension without OROP?

16.  Equal MSP and equal Disability pension for all combat soldiers to be given. All JCO/OR to be given same pension as per x group pay and Pension must be fixed on Last pay of present rank as before 6th CPC.

17. Reinstate 70 % pension for all who left before superannuation.

Above points are compiled based on discussion with Brig. Vidyasagar, Veteran Bir Bahadur Singh and from the internet source.

VERY USFUL ARTICLE

ON LINE ARREARS  CALCULATION FOR DEFENCE PENSIONERS 

 



 
Sgt.S.Shanmugam (Retd.) of Peralam,  being honoured by AFA at Thanjavur.







(A great Social Worker for the Ex-servicemen Community)
ON LINE ARREAR CALCULATION FOR DEFENCE PENSIONERS
The anomalies of the 6 CPC for the Defence  pensioners  are being settled one by one after a lapse of 10 years.  Some are through legal battle and some are through Cabinet Committees.  This has resulted in payment of Various arrears to Defence pensioners from 1.1.2006.

In fact many pensioners and even the Banks do not know what are these arrears. This has resulted in the loss of life of one precious Sub.Grewal  at Delhi on 2.11.2016.  In the circumstances, the OROP and the 7 CPC recommendations also has come up for implementation.


In order to facilitate easy calculation of various pension arrears, on line, the Exwel Trust had developed a Website  www.exweltrust.in exclusively for the online calculation of various  arrears. At present the following arrears calculations are available on line.  The purpose of this website is to create awareness among the Defence pensioners.
A number of Circulars have been issued by the CDA (P) Allahabad on the subject.  In most of the cases, the arrears are identified by the CDA Circular Numbers.


Therefore, all the readers are requested to visit the website www.exweltrust.in first, and understand what are the circulars, and what are arrears involved.

1.      CDA Cir.560 (For arrears of Spl. Family Pension, Disability Pension etc. for the period from 1.1.2006 to 23.9.2012).

2.      CDA Cir.555 for OROP revision and arrears from 1.7.2014.

3.      CDA Cir.547 for Arrears from 1.1.2006 to 23.9.2012 on a/c of 6 CPC anamolies.

4.      CDA Cir.567 for Arrears of Enhanced Family pension from 1.1.2006 to 23.9.2012.

5.      CDA Cir.568 for De-linking arrears from 1.1.2006 30. To 30.6.2014.

6.      CDA Cir.570 for 7 CPC arrears and revision of pension from 1.1.2016.

7.      A Special provision (Menu) for 80 years pensioners to know their arrears with Additional Pension.
The list is  never ending.  We are continuously updating our website.  The main idea is that every pensioner must know his entitlement.  It has been made so simple that a Pensioner or a Family Pensioner need to know the following information only to know their pension arrears and revised pension.  It is emphasized that every pensioner should keep the following information ready every time.

1.      Name of the Pensioner

2.      Rank of the Pensioner.

3.      Qualifying service.

4.      Group of the Pensioner

5.      Date of Birth of a pensioner.

6.      Date of Death of pensioner in case of Family pension.

7.      Name of the Bank, Branch and Account Number.

Nowadays, every village is having Internet Browsing Centre. All you have to do is visit a Browsing centre Tell them the Website address as www.exweltrust.in and hand over your particulars as given above.  With a minimum service charges, you can get your arrears printed out.  By this you will know what is your entitlement and compare with what has been paid by the Bank and if necessary you raise claim with the Bank.  You need not run for help to anybody in this regard.

In the present scenario if you get your Pension and arrears correctly and in time that is enough.

Let us work towards this goal.  I request our regular readers of this website to please spread this information.
Please put a Notice in the CSD Canteen and ECHS Polyclinics Notice Board and send me a Selfie for publishing your Photo in our website.
Will you do it as a service.  Please do.  We will honour those men in our Trust Meeting in Dec 2016.
PLEASE APPRECIATE ANY GOOD SOCIAL WORK 
WHICH WILL ENCOURAGE THE WORKERS. 

PLEASE DONATE ONLY RS.200 TO CONTINUE THIS SERVICES.
WITH THIS RS.200 YOU CAN HELP 2000 PENSIONER 
IF YOU ARE WILLING.

IF THERE IS A WILL THERE IS A WAY  
SOI;   Our sincere thanks to Indianexserviceman blog for this very very useful information.
