REVISION OF ENHANCED RATE OF FAMILY PENSION.
REVISION AND PAYMENT OF ARREARS FOR ENHANCED RATE OF FAMILY PENSION IN LINE WITH CDA CIR547/548.
It was informed through CDA cir 494 to revise the affected Enhanced Rate of Family pensioners, taking 50% of Minimum pay band + grade pay +MSP + X group Pay.
But what happened ? No bank has revised the affected cases.
For example : Take a case of Hav- Group-Y QS; 20 yrs.
ERFP : Scale of Pay: 5200- 20200- GP;2800 MSP:2000 Total=10000
ERFP is 50% of this= 5000 See Table No-1 of CDA cir 494. OK.
This is effective from 1-1-2006. Those who were drawing ERFP as on 1-1-2006
are eligible for this amount but they were paid 3500 only……………….(1)
Like wise for all the Ranks in all the 3 Sevices.
Now after series of representations from all the corners, MOD has issued an order
No: 1(14)/2012-D(Pen/Pol) , GOI, MOD dated 14-6-2016.
To revise the ERFP as per Pay in the Pay Band -the Minimum Fitment Table and CDA cir 503 With effect from 24-9-2012. And now they say that the effective Date is from 1-1-2006 instead of 24-9-2012.
Now the revision for the above example will be:
ERFP as per cir 503 for Hav- Y- 20Yrs of service…..: 6453.00 w.ef. 24-9-2012
But was paid as per cir 494 (if it was revised)……….. 5000.00 w.e.f 1-1-2006
The difference…… 1453.00per month.
Arrears from 1-1-2006 to 23-9-2012……..1453 x 103.65= 150603/-
(if the widow was drawing ERFP for this period )
If less period, we have to calculate accordingly.
Suppose, she was being paid only 3500 instead of 5000, then the arrears will be 6453-3500=2953 and 2953 X103.65= 306078.
If nobody has noticed this, the families will be looser by this arrears.
Dear veteran brothers, please find out the affected widows in your areas and help them to get their entitled arrears. This will be a noble service.
