"ALAS"- ANOMALY IN THE RATE OF PENSION OF JCOs- cir 547.
It is heartening to note that the rate of pension of a Subedar is less than what he was getting as on 1-1-2006.
For example: Table -36 of Cir 430.
A subedar of X group of 30 yrs of service, retired in the year 2002.
As per the above table, he was getting a basic pension of 11066 as on 1-1-2006.
Now , according to Cir 547, Annexure- A, his pension is mentioned as 10280.
What is this- Instead of an increase, there is a decrease.
Whether the JCO has to repay ?.
There are three periods mentioned in the Tables of cir 430,
Prior to 1996, 1-1-1996 to 10-10-1997 and 10-10-1997 to 31-12-2005.
The rate should have been as per the periods of retirement,
But the Annexure A, B and C of Cir 547 is prepared just for one period hence the anomaly.
The affected Subedar is questioning / asking us whether any recovery will be made on the basis of this circular.
There are many such discrepancies in the Annexures A, B and C..
Affected veterans are requested to verify their own Rate of pension and inform the PDAs not to make any recovery.
