Subject: Special benefits in cases of death and disability in service - Revision of Disability Pension/Family pension under CCS(EOP)Rules of Pre-2016 disability pensioners/ Family Pensioners in implementation of recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission - regarding.

In terms of the aforesaid OM, the revised disability pension/family pension under CCS(EOP) w.e.f. 01.01.2016 was required to be determined by multiplying the disability pension/family pension, as had been fixed at the time of implementation of the 6th Central Pay Commission recommendations, by 2.57.
2. Subsequently, vide this Department's OM No.38/37/2016-P&PW(A) dated 11th May, 2017, it was decided that the revised pension/family pension w.e.f 01.01.2016 in respect of all Central civil pensioners/family pensioners, including CAPF’s who retired/died prior to 01.01.2016 and drawing pension/family pension under CCS(Pension) Rules may be revised by notionally fixing their pay in the pay matrix recommended by 7thCPC in the level corresponding to the pay in the pay scale/pay band and grade pay at which they retired/died. This will be done by notional pay fixation under each intervening Pay Commission based on the Formula for revision of pay. While fixing pay on notional basis, the pay fixation formulae approved by the Government and other relevant instructions on the subject in force at the relevant time shall be strictly followed.
3. The question of revision of disability pension/family pension under CCS(EOP)Rules by pay fixation method has been considered by the Government. It has been decided that the disability pension/family pension under CCS(EOP)Rules will also be revised by notionally fixing the pay in the pay matrix recommended by the 7th CPC in the aforesaid manner. Accordingly, disability pension/family pension under CCS(EOP)Rwles w.eJ. 01.01.2016 will be revised in the following manner:-

(b) Where the deceased Government servant was holding a pensionable post: 60% of notional pay as on 01.01.2016 subject to a minimum of Rs.18,000/- per month.
In case where the widow dies or remarries, the children shall be paid family pension at the rates mentioned at (a) or (b) above, as applicable, and the same rate shall also apply to fatherless/motherless children. In both cases, family pension shall be paid to children for the period during which they would have been eligible for family pension under the CCS (Pension) Rules.
Dependent parents/brothers/sisters etc. shall be paid family pension one-half the rate applicable to widows/fatherless or motherless children.
II. Family Pension under Categories D & E

(b) If the Government servant is not survived by his widow but is survived by child/children only, all children together shall be eligible for family pension at the rate of 60% of the notional pay as on 01.01.2016 subject to a minimum of Rs. 18,000/-
(c) If the Government servant died as a bachelor or as a widower without children, family pension will be admissible to parents without reference to pecuniary circumstances, at the rate of 75% of the notional pay as on 01.01.2016, if both parents are alive, and at the rate of 60% if only one of them is alive.
III. Disability Pension for Categories B & C
(a) Disability pension would comprise of a service element equal to 50% of the notional pay as on 01.01.2016 plus disability element equal to 30% of the same notional pay, for 100% disability.

V. Disability Pension for Cases under Category E

(b) For lower percentage of the disability, the disability element shall be proportionately lower subject to the provisions of Rule 8 of CCS(EOP)Rules.

5. The limit of maximum pension and family pension under para 8 of Department of Pension and Pensioners' Welfare OM dated 12.05.2017 would not be applicable for disability pension under CCS(EOP)Rules.
6.

Central Govt hereby authorised public sector banks ICICI bank, Axis Bank & HDFC bank to accept deposits for NSC, KVP, RD, MIS, SCSS, SSA & TDs. Wef 10 Oct 2017.

Central Govt has pushed aside the Post Offices and released notification permitting all nationalized banks & ICICI bank, Axis Bank & HDFC bank ( from the private sector) to accept deposits for NSC, KVP, RD, MIS, SCSS, SSA & TDs. Wef 10 Oct 2017.
This is quite contrary to the assurance given by the dept.in the wake our vehement protest in creation of IPPB.
Now we r hoodwinked and our time tested small savings products are introduced in private bank. Should we call this as privatisation through back doors.
We have no space in IPPB even in the operative level which was assured to b allotted to us through a qualifying process. We are mute when recruitment to IPPB are in full swing totally ignoring us.
Are we dimnishing and poised to end up as servants to IPPB and all these pvt.banks.
Unless we act atleast now we are going to deplete in dimension and resign to the fate of extinction. We will b reduced as agents with no identity of our own
