=1.86×pre-revised pension +0.40×pre-revised pension
=1.86×pre-revised pension+40% of pre-revised
pension (I am putting this 40%="A")
2.Revised Pay = 1.86×pre-revised basic pay( rounded off to next
next higher multiple of 10) +G.P. as modified by UOI.
3.Formula adopted by 6thCPC for determination of G.P.
G.P.= 40% of maximum of pre-revised pay scale="B" If we compare "A" and "B", formula adopted by 6thCPC appears quite reasonable. But actually, 6th C P C recommended G.P.s which was in excess of 40% of maximum of pre-revised pay scales in all the scales from S-18 to S-30. (Exception was scale S-21 i.e. 12000-16500, where recommended G.P. was exactly 40% of maximum of scale, i.e.40% of (6500=6600) Thus ,we find that G.P.s recommended by 6th CPC were already more than 40% of maximum of pre-revised pay scale ( S-21 as pointed out above was an exception), still UOI enhanced these G.P.s beyond what was recommended by 6th CPC.(There was only one scale S- 23, where it maintained the G.P. recommended by 6th C P C )Here it is important to note that at this point in time UOI was not aware of the proper interpretation of Para 5.1.47. The interpretation which it had visualised, according to that it concluded that enhancement in G.P.s will not result in any increase in the revised pension of pr-2006 retirees. Hence UOI without any justification, and caring for any additional financial burden/implication, enhanced the G.P.s beyond the recommendation of 6th CPC. Their argument for additional financial burden/ financial constraints is only limited to pre-2006 pensioners which is deplorable.
It is only when the question of payment of arrears and re-fixation of pension of pre-2006 pensioners comes , the same UOI which enhanced the G.P.s without any justification and caring for financial constraints, puts financial constraints as a stumbling block in the rectification of pension & payment of arrears to pre-2006 retirees.
Pre-2006 pensioners are passing through very hard times & some of us might be banking upon the early payment of arrears so that they could discharge their responsibilities which will give away their worries in the last leg of their life. We are not begging & asking for neither alms nor charity, let us keep our heads high. We are demanding what is rightfully bestowed on us by the 6th CPC and duly accepted by UOI in Cabinet meeting.
