PENSION ANAMOLY FOR GROUP I SERGEANTS PRE 10.10.97
ANAMOLY IN PENSION FOR GROUP I SERGEANT AND DIPLOMA HOLDER SERGEANT X GROUP.
1st Group Sergeants of Air Force who retired before 10.10.97 are given a revised basic pension of Rs.5492. (For 15 years service) Whereas the same 1st Group Sergeants who retired after 10.10.97 are paid a revised basic pension of Rs.5820. Both are not diploma holders. Why there is such an anamoly ? When we asked for a clarification on the subject, we have received the following reply from CDA Allahabad. Is this reply satisfactory ? What to do and how to remove this anamoly ? Please think it over.
CLARIFICATION REGARDING CDA CIRCULAR 478
Our Letter to CDA Allahabad.
Sir, I am a retired Air Force Sergeant. Service 15 years. Group I Date of discharge 31.12.1974
My pension was revised to Rs.5492/- as per Table 111 of Cir.430.
THE PAY SCALE WAS REVISED WITH EFFECT FROM 10.10.1997.
Now as per Cir 478 dated 13.02.2012 “In terms of para 1.1 of GOI, MOD letter dated 08.03.2010 all pre 10.10.1997 pensioners are to be brought at par with Post 10.10.1997 PBOR pensioners”.
I am a Pre10.10.1997 retiree. Hence I humbly request you to clarify whether I am eligible for a Basic pension of Rs.5820 as per table No.112 of Cir.430 instead of Rs.5492 of table No.111 of Cir 430.
THE ABOVE LETTER WAS SENT ON 22 May, 2012.
The reply received from CDA Allahabad is reproduced below:-
Clarification regarding CDA Cir.478 Regarding Gp.I and Gp.X Sergeant. (Tables 111 and 112)
In this connection it is stated that Table No.112 appended in GOI MOD letter dt.08.03.2010 contains the revised rates of pension for Sergeant Gp.,X. (Diploma holder) wef 01.07.2009. This special group of Sergeant has been designed wef 10.10.1997 and it is a different group as compared with Sergeant Group ,X..
Therefore revised rate of pension wef 01.07.2009 as Rs.5492 (in terms of table No.111 appended to GOI MOD letter dt.08.03.2010) is considered to be correct as group of above named individual is equivalent to Group X.
As such the instant case is to be covered under Table No.111 and not under Table No.112 as Group I is equal to Group ,X,.
