6TH CPC RECOMMENDATION A REVIEW

Let us examine the of implementation of 6thCPC recommendation as applicable to pre2006 pensioners. After the submission of report by the 6th CPC, UOI adopted the following formulae for the revision of pension of pre-2006 retirees and revision of pay of those who were in service as on 1.1.2006.                                                                           
1. Revised Pension ::         =2.26×pre-revised pension
                                           =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.
                                                 (Where-ever pay band and G.P. was applicable)
                  

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.
