pensioners would not arise ., Applicants who are pre2006 retirees are claiming pension at par with post2006 retirees based on the recommendations of the VI Central Pay Commission which became effective from 1.1.2006 ., Nakara and others v ., Nakara supra has not held that the cut off dates when an upward revision introduced cannot be prescribed and arbitrary At this stage it may also be

Central Pay Commission i.e ., It the event of retirement subsequent to the specified dates which introduces discrimination in one otherwise homogeneous class of pensioners ., From the above extracted portion it clear that the principle of modified parity as recommended by the V CPC and accepted by the VI CPC and accepted by the Central Government provides that revised pension in no case shall be lower than 50 of the sum of the minimum of the pay in the pay band and grade pay corresponding to revised pay scale from which the pensioner had retried ., Thus the Apex Court in the case of D.S ., On the basis of this chart it has been pleaded that as per the impugned OM dated 14.10.2008 in the case of S24 officers the corresponding pay in the Pay Band against 14300 shown as 37400 ., 4 .,

corresponding to the prerevised pay scale from which the pensioner had retired ., 26 ., Om Prakash Chopra Chief Surveyor of Works MES Retd ., However the misinterpreted revised basic pay of Rs.37400 has caused a grave miscarriage of justice since those officers who belong to a much higher grade have now been equated with those who were working under them in a lower rankgrade ., Once the Central Government has accepted the principle of modified parity the benefit cannot be denied on the ground of financial constraints and cannot be said to be a valid reason ., Chauhan Member J Honble Dr ., It

pension of past retirees with reference to maximum pay of the post held at the time of retirement as revised by the Fifth CPC there force in the argument that the revised pension should be not less than that admissible on the minimum pay of the post held by the retiree at the time of retirement as revised by the Fifth CPC ., Applicants Versus 1 ., 17 ., 9 ., The Pay Commission made separate

recommendation for complete parity between the pre1996 and post111996 pensioners ., In order to decide the matter in controversy at this stage it will be useful to extract the relevant portions of para 5.1.47 of the VI CPC recommendation as accepted by the Resolution dated 29.08.2008 para 4.2 of the OM dated 1.9.2008 and subsequent changes made in the garb of clarification dated 3.10.2008 which

Thus the challenge made by the applicants based upon the judgment in D.S ., As can be seen from this scheme emoluments have to be computed on the basis of the revised pay structure and further as can be seen from paras 5.2 and 5.3 of the said OM qualifying service for the purpose of pension has been reckoned as 20 years as against 33 years which was prevalent in respect of the employees who retired before 1.1.2006 and also that emoluments for the purpose of pensionary benefits have to be determined on the basis of 10 months average emoluments or emoluments last drawn by the employee

order to decide the aforesaid issue few relevant facts may be noticed ., Secretary to the Government of India Departments of Expenditure Ministry of Finance North Block New Delhi ., In view of what has been stated above we are of the view that the clarificatiory OM dated 3.10.2008 and further OM dated 14.10.2008 which also based upon clarificatiory OM dated 3.10.2008 and OM dated 11.02.2009

., Nakara supra has to be read as one of limited application and its ambit cannot be enlarged to cover all claims made by the pension retirees or a demand for an identical amount of pension to every retiree from the same rank irrespective of the dates of retirement even though the reckonable emoluments for the purpose of computation of their pension be different ., 2 ., Ro 40197 C.R ., Chawla Chief Engineer MES Retd ., In addition Grade Pay of Rs.8700 was given totaling Rs.46100 ., We also wish to add that the Pay Commissions are concerned with the revision of the prerevised pay scales and also that in terms of Rule 34 of the CCS Pension Rules 1972 the pension of retirees has to be fixed on the basis of the average emoluments drawn by them at the time of retirement ., In fact several decisions of this Court have gone to the extent of saying that the choice of a cut off dates cannot be dubbed as arbitrary even if no particular reason given for the same in the counter affidavit filed by the Government unless it shown to be totally capricious or whimsical vide State of Bihar vs ., No.38378PPWA dated 3.10.2008 The fixation as per above will be subject to the provision that the

the lower functionary in DOP PW incorporates in the clarification against item 4.2 in the OM dated 1.9.2008 the first option about minimum of pay in the pay band irrespective of the prerevised scale

of the Apex Court in D.S ., The pension disbursing authorities may be authorized to consolidate the pension by adding a basic pension b personal pension wherever admissible c dearness relief as on

of cut off dates of 1.1.2006 for the purpose of extending retiral benefits arbitrary and it permissible for the Government to fix a cut off dates for introducing any new pensionretirement scheme or for discontinuing of any existing scheme ., Further as explained earlier the benefits available in S24 to S27 grade are available not only to retired employees but also to the large base of serving employees ., Union of India through the Secretary to the Govt ., Applicants have also explained as to how the disparity has resulted on account of implementationacceptance of VI CPC recommendations by

visit here to read the O.M ., 3 ., Thus reading of this OM clearly stipulates that the OM dated 1.9.2008 has been made applicable to the employees of the Central Government who are granted pension under CCS Pension Rules 1972 ., If the interpretation of the Departments of Pension accepted this will results in reduction of pension by Rs.400 per month ., This hits the very principle of the modified parity which was never intended by the Pay Commission or by the Central Government b The Central Government improved upon many pay scales recommended by the VI CPC ., Dhingra and others 2008 2 SCC 229 the Apex Court relying upon its earlier decision in para25 has made the following observations 25 It well settled that when two sets of employees of the same rank retire at different points of time one set cannot claim the benefit extended to the other set on the ground that they are similarly situated ., Suffice it to say that the observation made by the Patna Bench was given without taking into consideration the modified parity as recommended by the Pay Commission and accepted by the Central Government vide its resolution dated 29.08.2008 which formed the basis to grant pension to pre2006 retirees ., vs ., The above view also fortified by paras 137.15 137.20 and 137.21 of the V CPC recommendations as reproduced below leading to modified parity which were also accepted by the VI CPC and accepted by the Central Government and thus read Immediate relief to pensioners 137.15 While the work relating to revision of pension of pre 1.1.1986 retires by notional fixation of their pay shall have to be undertaken by the pension sanctioning authorities to be completed in a timebound manner we suggest that the pensioners should be provided some relief immediately on implementation of our recommendations ., Similarly revisions concerning all the other pay scales were accepted by the aforementioned OM dated 14th October 2008 ., The learned counsel has further argued that the resultant injustice done to the pre112006 pensioners had even been recognized by MOS F and MOS PP in their letters to the PM and MOS F respectively copies of which are at Annexures A11 pages 169 and A12 pages 170 of the OA ., Therefore fixation of pay at Rs.37400 by terming it as minimum of the pay in the pay band erroneous and ill conceived and d That even the Minister of State for Finance and Minister of State PP taking note of the resultant injustice done to the pre11.2006 pensioners pages 169170 had sent formal proposal to the Departments of Expenditure seeking rectification but the said proposal was turned down by the officer of the Departments of Expenditure on the ground of financial implications ., The financial effect of the same manymany times that of the small additional expenditure which will be incurred on account of the benefits sought by the Applicants ., Respondents OA No.3062010 1 ., Razdan Chief Architect MES Retd ., Veena Chhotray M.L ., We have no hesitation in conceding the argument advanced by pensioners that they should receive a pension at least based on the minimum pay of the post as revised by Fifth Pay Commission in the same way as an employee normally gets the minimum revised pay of the post he holds ., It also indicated by CAT that in the garb of clarification respondents misinterpreted minimum of pay in the pay band as minimum of the pay band and that this interpretation apparently erroneous ., 13 ., All India Backward Class Bank Employees Welfare Association Ors ., Thus this modified formula formed basis for revision of the pension of the pre2006 retirees as adopted by resolution dated 29.08.2008 which according to applicants has not even been followed by the respondents in its true letter and spirit ., Thus the prerevised scale from which a person has retired and the emoluments which he was drawing at the time immediately preceding his retirement are a relevant consideration for the purpose of computing revised pension and cannot be ignored ., We find no difficulty in implementing the scheme omitting the event happening after the specified dates retaining the more humane formula for computation by applying the rule of average emoluments as set out in Rule 34 and introducing the slab system and the amount worked out within the floor and the ceiling ., Shri Satish Verma Retd ., Rather the Apex Court in the said case in para47 has categorically held that undoubtedly when an upward revision introduced a dates from which it becomes effective has to be provided ., Union of India 1983 1 SCC 305 Krishna Kumar vs ., As regards the grievance to OM dated 14.10.2008 based on the OM dated 1.9.2008 as clarified by OM dated 3.10.2008 whereby a revised tables Annexure A1 of the pre2006 pensioners pay scalepay was finalized to facilitate payment of the revised pensionfamily pension applicants have prepared a chart in respect of minimum of the prerevised scales modified parity of S 29 along with 5 scales included in PB4 works out as under and thus reads Min of Pre revised scale ., Central Govt ., But the revised scheme would be operative from the dates mentioned in the scheme and would bring under its umbrella all existing pensioners and those who retired subsequent to that date ., It was held that liberalized pension scheme will become operative to all pensioners governed by 1979 rules irrespective of dates of retirement ., This consistent with the fitment benefit being allowed in case of the existing employees ., Amar Nath Goyal ., Once an employee renders the minimum pensionable service of 20 years pension should be paid at 50 of the average emoluments received during the past 10 months or the pay last drawn whichever more beneficial to the retiring employee ., OA No.03062010 4 ., M.L ., In the case of HAG and above scales this will be fifty percent of the minimum of the revised pay scale ., However regarding revision of pension of past pensioners the Commission made recommendations as per

Pensioners Welfare Lok Nayak Bhawan New Delhi110003 ., According to us deletion of the words sum of the and grade pay thereon corresponding to the prerevised scale and addition of the words irrespective of the prerevised scale of pay plus as introduced by the respondents in the garb of clarification vide OM dated 3.10.2008 amounts to carrying out amendment to the resolution dated 29.08.2008 based upon para 4.1.47 of the recommendations of the VI CPC as also the OM dated 1.9.2008 issued by the Central Government pursuant to the aforesaid resolution which has been accepted by the Cabinet ., Ro 75 Kiran Vihar New Delhi110092 ., 3 ., emphasis supplied 29 ., Yet in another decision in the case of Union of India v ., The stand taken by the respondents that the recommendations of the VI CPC as accepted by the Government vide Resolution dated 29.08.2008 and further clarification issued by the respondents in consonance with the recommendations so accepted ., It therefore

existing pensioners and future pensioners have to be computed by applying the rule of average emoluments as set out in Rule 34 whereas in the case of the defence pensioners they are regulated in terms of the Special Army instructions issued in that regard based on the concept of one rank one pension which not applicable in respect of the employees serving in the Central Government ., All pensioners wherever they retired would be covered by the liberalised pension scheme because the scheme a scheme for payment of pension to a pensioner governed by 1972 Rules ., On the basis of the recommendations

to some blatantly capricious or outrageous result ., Union of India through the Secretary to the Govt ., V.K ., Chander Hass Anr ., Admittedly the Armed Forces pensioners are not governed by the

29.08.2008 to be taken as criteria for determining pension of pre2006 retirees still on account of subsequent clarification issued to para 4.2 of the OM dated 1.9.2008 by the officers of the respondents vide OM dated 3.10.2008 and 14.10.2008 criteria and principles for determining the pension has been given a complete gobye ., Consequently dearness relief at the rate of 74 on pension excluding the effect of merger has been taken for the purposes of computing revised pension as on 112006 ., Revised pension of S 29 works out to Rs.27350 which has been reduced to Rs.23700 as per DOP OM of 3102008 para 4.8 B below ., Before the High Court it was urged on behalf of the writ petitioners that while the writ petitioners and the other similarly placed officers who had retired while holding the rank of Major Generals prior to 1.1.1996 were given the same pension as that of Brigadier ., However as per the OM dated 3.10.2008 revised pension at 50 of the sum of the minimum of the pay in the pay band and the grade pay thereon corresponding to prerevised scale from which the pensioner had retired has been given a goby by deleting the words sum of the and grade pay thereon corresponding to the prerevised pay scale and adding irrespective of the prerevised scale of pay plus implying that the revised pension to be fixed at 50 of the minimum of the pay which has substantially changed the modified parityformula adopted by the Central Government pursuant to the recommendations made by the VI CPC and has thus caused great prejudice to the applicants ., As such on these grounds pre2006 retirees cannot claim benefit at par with post2006 retirees who are governed by the separate set of Scheme ., It in the light of the aforesaid factual aspects the matter required to be examined ., emphasis supplied ., Nakara supra that pre2006 retirees should be extended the same pensionary benefits as that of post2006 retirees cannot be accepted ., As has been held

Govt of India 2006 11 SCC 709 D.S ., Union of India 1991 2 SCC 104 whereby the Apex Court explained the ratio laid down in the case of D.S ., 22 ., However the Government has upgraded the said S24 category to Pay Band 4 and placed them in the pay Band of Rs.3740067000 plus Grade Pay of Rs.8700 per month ., As such it was not permissible for the respondents to ignore the prerevised scale of pay for the purpose of computing revised pension as per the modified parity in the garb of issuing the clarifications thereby altering the modified parityformula which was accepted by the Central Government vide its resolution dated 29.08.2008 ., OAs are allowed in the aforesaid terms with no order as to interest and costs ., The Pension Calculated at 50 of the sum of the minimum of the pay in the pay band and the grade pay thereon corresponding to the prerevised pay scale plus grade pay would be calculated i at the minimum of the pay in the pay band irrespective of the prerevised scale of pay plus the grade pay corresponding to the prerevised pay scale ., No doubt in D.S ., Yet for another reason pre1.1.2006 and post2006 retirees cannot be extended the same pensionary benefits inasmuch as the respondents on the basis of the recommendations of the VI CPC have issued two different Schemes for pre2006 and post2006 retirees ., 3 ., The attempt to classify them into separate classesgroups for the purpose of pensionary benefits was not found on intelligible differentia which has a rationale nexus with the object sought to be achieved ., This may be stepped up by the pension disbursing authorities wherever feasible to the level of 50 of the minimum pay of the post held by the pensioner at the time of retirement ., The phrase minimum of the pay in the Pay Band has been used and this phrase carries the same meaning i.e ., Principle enunciated 137.21 The Commission has decided to enunciate a principle for the future revision of pensions to the effect that complete parity should normally be conceded up to the dates of last pay revision and modified parity with pension equated at least to the minimum of the revised pay scale be accepted at the time of each fresh pay revision ., 6 ., 8 ., Respondents are directed to refix the pension of all pre2006 retirees w.e.f ., Thus they suffered triple jeopardy viz ., 20 ., 4 ., Nakaras case supra there was no dispute regarding implementation of the liberalized scheme from a cut off date ., It stated that there may be a slight change in the word used in the clarification issued by the Government subsequently but has the same meaning as in the latter part of para 5.1.47 of the report of the VI CPC as accepted by Government ., Kasturi vs ., of India Departments of Pension and Pensioners Welfare Ministry of Personnel Public Grievances and Pensions Lok Nayak Bhawan Khan Market New Delhi110 003 ., But it gross misinterpretation of 6CPC recommendations and acceptance of 6cpc recommendations in the resolution by way of formulating a wrong fitment tables that has caused a huge financial loss to pre2006 pensioners ., PPS Gumber Chief Engineer MES Retd ., We feel that if government ready to implement this CAT decision dated 01.11.2011 in O.A No 06552010 Pre2006 Pensioners will be benefited to some extent if not at par with Post2006 Pensioners ., As can be seen from the clarificatory order dated 30.08.2008 Annexure A6 at pages 139147 regarding pay scale of S24 to S29 the pay scales of the V CPC of Rs.1430018300 in respect of S24 employees the VI CPC has placed them in Pay Band3 and recommended the Pay Band of Rs1560039100 plus Grade Pay of Rs.7600 per month ., In our opinion it would make a marginal difference in the case of past pensioners because the emoluments are not revised Emphasis added 5 ., 8 ., The illegality which has been perpetrated in the present matter apparent from the fact that whereas an officer who was in the prerevised scale S24 and receiving a pay of Rs.14300 would now receive Rs.37400 plus grade pay of Rs.8700 and his full pension would accordingly be fixed at Rs.23050 i.e ., Para 2.1 of this OM stipulates that these orders shall apply to all

pension will be subject to the provision that the revised pension in no case shall be lower than fifty percent of the minimum of the pay in the pay band plus the grade pay corresponding to the prerevised pay scale from which the pensioner had retired ., Ramchander Tripathi Chief Engineer MES Retd ., Thus according to us applicants cannot take any assistance from this judgment which was rendered in the different facts and circumstances of the case and relates to the Army personnel and based on the premise of one rank one pension ., 50 of 37400 pay plus grade pay Rs.8700 pursuant to the implementation of VI CPC recommendations after 1.1.2006 whereas a person belonging to the Applicant Association who was drawing a pay of Rs.18400 or even Rs.22400 maximum of scale in the

Secretary Shri Sant Bhushan Lal Ro C521 Grant Vasant Vasant Kunj New Delhi110 070 ., Union of India 19831 SCC 305 this Court had struck down the cut off dates in connection with the demand of pension ., As regards post2006 retirees respondents have issued OM dated 2.9.2008 Annexure R1 as to how the pension has to be computed ., For example if a pensioner had retired in the prerevised scale of pay of Rs.1840022400 the corresponding pay band being Rs.3740067000 and the corresponding grade pay being Rs.10000 p.m ., For the Respondents Shri Ritesh Kumar Shri Piyush Sanghi Shri Simranjeet Singh Shri Sumit Goel Shri Krishan Kumar Shri Rajesh Katyal counsel for the officials respondents ., In order to remove that anomaly Government stepped up pension of Major Generals who had retired prior to 1.1.1996 giving them pension as was given to the Brigadiers ., It may be stated that challenge has been made only to the aforesaid issues though the additional points raised by the applicants in OA20872009 and 21012011 have not been pressed by the learned counsel for the applicants ., Subbarayudu and others 2008 14 SCC 702 has held that even if no reason forthcoming for fixation of particular

from S9 to S15 will not be less than 50 of Rs.9300 plus 50 of the grade pay corresponding to the prerevised pay scale ., Respondents OA No.30792009 1 ., The pay scale in S29 category was improved from Rs.3920067000 plus Grade Pay of Rs.9000 with minimum pay of Rs.43280 to Rs.3740067000 with grade pay of Rs.10000 with minimum pay of Rs.44700 pages 142 of the paperbook ., However a person who retired

this connection ., No ., Union of India 1991 2 SCC 104 V ., CAT has also rightly pointed out the actual intention of the Government with regard to fixation of revised pension for the employees retired before 2006 has been given a goby because of nonapplication of mind by lower functionaries such as Under Secretary etc ., 7 ., Khera Chief Architect MES Retd ., The enunciation of the principle would imply that at the time of the next pay revision say in the year 2006 complete parity should be given to past pensioners as between pre1996 and post1996 and modified parity be given between the pre2006 and post2006 pensioners ., M.D ., O R D E R Honble Mr ., Vijayapurapu Subbayamma 2000 7 SCC 662 ., The consolidated pension shall be not less than 50 of the minimum pay as revised by the Fifth CPC of

modification that fixation of pension shall be based on a multiplication factor of 1.86 i.e basic pension Dearness Pension wherever applicable dearness relief of 24 as on 1.1.2006 instead of 1.74 .,

Commission and adopted by the Government vide resolution dated 29.08.2008 ., It pleaded that first the need for such a doubt being raised not clear as both the formulation of the CPC in para 5.1.47 as well as in Government Resolution dated 29.8.2008 Annexure A7 of the OA clear that the fixation of pension will be subject to the provision that the revised pension in no case shall be lower than fifty

MES Retd ., Union of India 1990 4 SCC 207 and held that the Courts decision in D.S ., 161 New D.P ., Nakara Ors ., Vhora Chief Surveyor of Works MES Retd ., In regard to determination of pension of those retiring after implementation of its recommendations the Commission recommended linkage of full pension with 33 years of qualifying service should be dispensed with ., Therefore the argument sought to be raised by the Union of India during the course of hearing regarding the socalled financial impact has no factual basis at all ., To substantiate this argument reliance has been placed on the judgment of the Apex Court in the case of D.S ., Similarly in the case of employees who were placed in S29 pay scale they were recommended Pay Band of Rs.3920067000 plus Grade Pay of Rs.9000 per month by the VI CPC whereas the Government has revised pay structure to Rs.3740067000 plus Grade Pay of Rs.10000 per month ., It was very seriously contended remove the event correlated to dates and examine whether the scheme workable ., In D.S ., Ro 7178 Pocket D7 Vasant Kunj New Delhi110070 ., However in paras 66 and 67 of the judgment Patna Bench has given a direction that the Government should examine this aspect of S29 pay scales retirees being able to retire at the maximum of the pay band 4 pay scale with the grade pay of Rs.10000 which would bring their pension to Rs.38500 ., The Central Government did not intend to reduce the pension of pre2006 retirees while improving the pay scale of S29 grade c If the erroneous interpretation of the Departments of Pension accepted it would mean that a Director level officer retiring after putting in merely 2 years of service in their pay band S24 would draw more pension than a S29 grade officer retiring before 1.1.2006 and that no S29 grade officer whether existing or holding post in future will be fixed at minimum of the pay band i.e ., The Government of India constituted VI Central Pay Commission VI CPC on 05.10.2006 inter alia to examine the principles which should govern the structure of pension deathcumretirement gratuity family pension and other terminal or recurring benefits having financial implications to the present and former Central Government employees appointed before 1.1.2004 ., R.D ., OA No.05072010 New Delhi this the 1st day of November 2011 ., Nakara supra ., As can be seen from the relevant portion of the resolution dated 29.8.2008 based upon the recommendations made by the VI CPC in paragraph 5.1.47 it clear that the revised pension of the pre2006 retirees should not be less than 50 of the sum of the minimum of the pay in the Pay Band and the grade pay thereon corresponding to the prerevised pay scale held by the pensioner at the time of retirement ., And that would take care of the grievance of retrospectivity ., Shri S.P ., For example the same employee in the illustration above who retired at the basic pay of Rs.13225 in the prerevised pay scale of S15 Rs.800027513500 who will receive a minimum pension of only Rs.465050 of Rs.9300 Rs.2700 50 of GP of Rs.5400 will be All Eligible for revised minimum pension of Rs.7440 50 of Rs.14880 which a minimum revised pay in the pay band against the prerevised scale S15 as per fitment tables of O.M ., Further it very relevant to note that the said impact would be not only on the retired S24 officers but also on the large base of serving employees ., this eligibility qualification severable? 48 ., As we all know pre2006 Pensioners have been not treated at par with Post 2006 pensioners as far as revised pension fixation concerned .,
