ENHANCEMENT IN FAMILY PENSION – DOPPW INFORMS NOT POSSIBLE.
Ministry of P. PG & Pension, vide No. 1/23/2020-P&PW (E) dated 03.09.2020 informs to Shri S.C Maheshwari, General Secretary.Bharat Pensioners Samaj, 2/13-A Backside Basement, Jangpura A, New Delhi -110014 that “
” 10.1.25 The Commission sought the views of the government in this regard. The Department of Pension and Pensioners Welfare stated that the VI CPC had recommended calculation of pension @ 50 per cent of last pay of the average emoluments (for last 10 months) whichever is more beneficial. The Commission also recommended delinking of pension from qualifying service of 33 years. Effectively the dispensation on pension has already been liberalised by the VI CPC. Further the recommendations of this Commission in relation to pay of both the civilian and defence forces personnel will lead to a significant increase in the pay drawn and therefore in the ‘last pay drawn’/reckonable emoluments.’ Therefore the Commission does not recommend any further increase in the rate of pension and family pension from the existing levels. “
