The fifth CPC, in para-137.13 of their report, observed that while it is desirable to grant complete parity in pension to all past pensioners irrespective of the date of their retirement; this may not be feasible straight away as the financial implications would be considerable. The process of bridging the gap in pension of past pensioners has already been set in motion by the IV CPC when past pensioners were granted additional relief in addition to consolidation of. their pension. This process of attainment of reasonable parity needs to be continued so as to achieve complete parity over a period of time. In para-137.14 of their report, as a follow up of the basic; objective of parity, the V CPC. recommended thai the pension of all the pre 1986 retirees may be, updated by notional fixation of their pay as on 1.1.1986 by adopting the same formula as for serving employees, treating that notional pay as average emolument as on 1.1.86 and determining the notional pension as on 1.1.86

NEW DELHI: Increase in salary bill due to Seventh Pay Commission and Implementation of One Rank One Pension (OROP) will not strain government’s fiscal position, Minister of State for Finance Jayant Sinha today said. “I think we are in a very good shape as far as fiscal management is concerned. That was appreciated by all economists,” he said while interacting with reporters after a meeting of economists which was chaired by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley at NITI Aayog. He made it clear that the government’s fiscal position is strong enough to bear the impact of implementation of Seventh Pay Commission and OROP. The Seventh Pay Commission report in December is expected to recommend a hike in salary of central government employees. OROP is likely to result in an outgo of Rs 8,000-10,000 crore this fiscal.

Pensioners may Face Criminal Action for Giving Wrong Information

Pensioners may Face Criminal Action for Giving Wrong Information Pensioners giving false information to the government while seeking its permission for joining an NGO or private firm within two years after their retirement may face criminal proceedings. Making this clear, the ministry of personnel has amended existing rules and made it mandatory for the pensioners to declare that the NGO or the firm they propose to join is not involved in activities which are in conflict with or prejudicial to India’s foreign relations, national security and domestic harmony. They need to declare that they have not been privy to sensitive or strategic information in the last three years of service, which is directly related to the areas of interest or work of the organisation, they propose to join, the new rules said. The move assumes significance as the government has taken action against several non-government organisations for allegedly misusing foreign grant for anti-national work.
