Payment of Life Time Arrears of Pension

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Indian Military Veterans


IMPORTANT

What happens when moneys by way of arrears (like DA, enhancement of Pension etc) are due to a Pensioner who expires before getting the amount? Govt has issued revised instructions last year, attached for your reference, which may be gone through.

A doubt may arise whether a separate Nomination is required, when Pension a/c is already there in joint names of Pensioner and his wife with the Bank. The above OM makes it clear that a separate Nomination for Life Time Arrears of Pension is required. Since the OM is of recent origin, even Banks may not be aware of the correct position and they may not be clear about this.

This Nomination is under Central Govt. Pension Rules and is entirely different from the ones we make for our SB accounts which are made under the Banking Laws. Banks are required to collect such Nomination forms even at the time of opening of Pension Acct. Many Banks have not done this.

Remember that Pension and arrears of Pension can be credited to the Joint a/c only as long as the pensioner is alive and not beyond. On the death of the Pensioner, the Joint a/c becomes a “single account” on intimation by the spouse to the Bank and Family Pension is credited automatically to this account in spouse’s name.

Life Time Arrears of Pension etc due to the Pensioner when he was alive can be paid only to his Nominee. Form-A is attached. Fill it in triplicate, go to Pension paying branch of the Bank and obtain acknowledgement in one copy for your record.

The above OM issued by Deptt of Pension and Pensioner’s Welfare deals with action by the Bank in the absence of a valid Nomination for Life Time Arrears and we need not allow this situation to arise. Take necessary action to avoid hardship to the spouse later.

Family Pension to Childless Remarried Widow of a Soldier

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Indian Military Veterans

 From MILITARY NEWS 02 Sep 2014, sent by Col Thapa. 
Armed Forces Tribunal Says Soldier's Remarried Widow Is Entitled To Pension

The Armed Forces Tribunal has ruled that childless widows of Army Men who remarry, and continue to depend on the family pension as their primary source of sustenance, cannot be denied the benefit.

The Chennai bench of the Armed Forces Tribunal, quashing a petition which challenged the eligibility to pension of an Armyman's widow who had remarried, said family pension was not legal ownership subject to laws of succession but a welfare measure of the government.

Citing the precedent established by the Supreme Court, it said, "Pension schemes have an overriding effect over general laws of succession."

R Reddamma, mother of former Naik E Bhaskar, in a petition to the Army said her son had been in service for 16 years and was discharged in 2000. He died a year later and his wife Revathy received the family pension. She remarried in 2009 and was no more a widow. According to the Hindu laws of succession, Reddamma was now entitled to the pension, the petition said. When the Army rejected her petition, Reddamma moved the AFT.

Redamma's counsel said pension regulations of the Army stipulate that a widow who remarried can only receive pension if she married her husband's brother. This was not the case with Revathy, he said and Reddamma, therefore, had the right to receive the pension.

Countering the argument, Revathy said the rule applied only to special family pension and not ordinary pension. She said Bhaskar's mother was not entitled to pension. She also said Redamma was financially independent, with several properties and a thriving moneylending business.

A bench of judicial member V Periyah Kuppah and administrative member K Surendra Nath said Revathy was a childless widow who had remarried. The investigation report of the Army said the family pension was her only means of income and as such she was entitled to the pension.

"The mother is one of the legal heirs along with the widow and children of the deceased, according to the provisions of Hindu Succession Act. However family pension is not an estate but a welfare measure by the government," the bench said. It added that, according to the Army report, Redamma had independent sources of income from various immovable properties.

The Armed Forces Tribunal has ruled that childless widows of Army men who remarry, and continue to depend on the family pension as their primary source of sustenance, cannot be denied the benefit.

Seventh Pay Commission has sought information on the parity of pay scales manifests in posts of a similar nature

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Indian Military Veterans

MEENA AGARWAL
SECRETARY
GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
SEVENTH CENTRAL PAY COMMISSION
7CPC/99/RR/2014/1
Dated: 8th September, 2014
Dear
The 7th Central Pay Commission has been receiving a number of memoranda, representations from associations/federations as well as individual cadres on pay and related issues. As part of its working, the Commission is also hearing various groups of employees both in Delhi and during its visits outside Delhi.
2. One of the major issues raised before the Commission centres on the subject of parity. One aspect of parity manifests in how posts of a similar nature are placed. Certain cadres/category of employees have, in their deposition before the Commission, stated that there are cases when identical or similarly placed cadres/categories of employees in different Ministries/Departments are placed differentially in terms of pay and promotional prospects.
3. With a view to examining and addressing this aspect of parity amongst apparently similarly placed cadres/posts, the Commission has devised a template to be filled in for posts being administered by your Department. The template seeks to elicit information that would be readily available in the Recruitment Rules for the concerned post(s)/cadres. In case your Department only operates posts involving common cadres like the Central Secretariat Service (CSS), Central Secretariat Stenographers Service (CSSS), Central Secretariat Clerical Service (CSCS), a NIL report may kindly be furnished to the Commission.
4. Since the Work of the Commission is time bound may I request that information as sought is furnished by 25 September 2014. Perhaps a copy of the RRs themselves could be sent as advance information.
Yours sincerely,
sd/-

Different retirement ages for Time Scale and Selection Grade Ranks in the Air Force are discriminatory: Supreme Court

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Indian Military VeteranT
The Supreme Court in a landmark decision today has upheld the order of the Armed Forces Tribunal wherein the discriminatory policy of different retirement ages for the ranks of Group Captain (Time Scale) vis-a-vis Group Captain (Selection Grade) was held illegal and struck down.


The Supreme Court has dismissed the appeal filed by the Ministry of Defence and the Air Force against similarly placed officers led by Gp Capt Atul Shukla, and has concluded the following in strong words:

Suffice it to say that the basis for classification in question for purposes of age of superannuation which the appellant has projected is much too tenuous to be accepted as a valid basis for giving to the Time Scale Officers a treatment different from the one given to the Select Officers.

We are also of the view that concerns arising from a parity in the retirement age of Time Scale and Select Officers too are more perceptional than real. At any rate, such concerns remain to be substantiated on the basis of any empirical data. The upshot of the above discussion is that the classification made by the Government of India for purposes of different retirement age for Time Scale Officers and Select Officers does not stand scrutiny on the touchstone of Articles 14 and 16 of the Constitution as rightly held by the Tribunal.

The above closes another yet long tumultuous journey of affected officers. In fact, once the decision was rendered by the AFT, the Air HQ should have taken up a case with the Govt for rationalising the policy rather than unnecessarily challenging it before the Apex Court.


It is high time that litigation against own employees is considered on the touchstone of logic and equity rather than indulging in ego-fuelled appeals. It is time for the political executive to take a call on this and trample on the vicious cycle of luxurious litigation without accountability.

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Indian Military Veterans


No 12(16)/2009/D(Pen/Policy)
Government of India
Ministry of Defence
Department of Ex-Servicemen Welfare

New Delhi, the 15th September, 2014

To,
The Chief of Army Staff
The Chief of Naval Staff
The Chief of Air Staff
Subject:Rationalization of casualty Pensionary Awards for the Armed Forces Officers and Personnel below Officer Rank (PBOR) invalided out from service prior to 1.1.1996: Extension of benefit of broad banding of percentage of disability/ war injury.



Sir,
The undersigned is directed to refer to the provisions stipulated in Para 7.2 of this Ministry’s letter No 1(2)/97/D(Pen-C) dated 31.1.2001 through which the concept of broad banding of percentage ofdisability/ war injury was introduced in respect of those Armed Forces Officers and Personnel below Officer Rank who were invalided out of service on or after 1.1.1996 on account of disability / war injury accepted as attributable to or aggravated by Military Service. The said provision for determining extent of disability / war injury was also extended to pre – 1.1.1996 invalided out cases from 1.7.2009 vide this Ministry’s letter No 10 (01)/D(Pen/Policy)2009/Vol II dated 19.1.2010 provided that the Armed Forcespersonnel were in receipt of disability element/ war injury element for disability more than 20% as on 1.7.2009.

2. Consequent upon receipt of reference from various Pensioners’ Associations for extending the provisions regarding broad banding of percentage of disability to such pre – 1.1.1996 Armed Forces pensioners from 1.1.1996 itself, the matter has been suitably examined in this Ministry. In partial modification of this Ministry’s above said letter dated 19th January 2010, the President is now pleased to decide that with effect from 1.1.1996, the benefit of broad banding of percentage of disability / war injury shall be allowed to Armed Forces Officers and PBOR pensioners who were invalided out of service prior to 1.1.1996 and were in receipt of disability element/ war injury element as on 1.1.1996. In such cases where the pensioner was not in receipt of disability element as on 1.1.1996 but became entitled at a later stage due to reassessment of disability more than 20%, this benefit shall be allowed from the same date. Similarly, in those cases where the pensioners were in receipt of disability element/ war injury element as on 1.1.1996 but the same was discontinued at a later stage due to reassessment of disability as less than 20%, the disability element/ war injury element shall be discontinued from the later date as hithertofore. However, in those pre-1.1.1996 cases where the disability element / war injury element was not allowed for disability being accepted as less than 20% at initial stage or subsequent stage on reassessment of disability, the same will continue to be disallowed and such cases will not be re-opened.

3. The disability element/ war injury element of pension in all such cases shall be recomputed accordingly under these orders by the Pension Sanctioning Authorities (PSAs) concerned for regulating payment under this Ministry’s letters No. PC 1{2}/97/D(Pen-C) dated 16.5.2001, No 16(6)/2008(1)/D(Pen/Policy) dated 4.5.2009 and letter No. 17(4)/2008(1)/ D(Pen/Policy)/Vol-V dated 15.2.2011. For this purpose, each affected Armed Forces pensioner who were invalided out of service prior to 1.1.1996 and were in receipt of disability element/ war injury element on 1.1.1996 or thereafter, shall submit an application in the format enclosed as Annexure to this letter to the PSAs concerned through their Pension Disbursing Agencies and Record Offices in the case of PBOR and through Pension Disbursing Agencies in the case of Commissioned Officers to PSAs concerned for revision of disability element/ war injury element. PSAs may, however, also identify the affected cases from the corrigendum PPOs issued by them based on the application received in terms of this Ministry’s above said letter dated 19.1.2010, and for issue of corrigendum PPO.

4. If a pensioner, to whom benefit accrues under the provisions of this letter, had already died on or after 1.1.1996 but before date of issue of this letter, the application for revision shall be submitted by the family pensioners or by his heir, as the case may be. Payment of LTA shall, however, be regulated as per the extant Government orders on the subject matter.

5. All other terms and conditions for grant / revision of disability element/ war injury element of pension in respect of Armed Force pensioners invalided out of service prior to 1.1.1996, which are not affected by the provisions of this letter, will remain unchanged.

6. This issues with the concurrence of Finance Division of this Ministry vide their ID No PC to 10(22)/2009/Fin/Pen dated 19/08/2014.

Hindi version will follow.
Yours faithfully

Aadhaar Enabled Biometric Attendance System (AEBAS) – New attendance system for central government employees by month-end

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Indian Military Veterans

Aadhar-based biometric attendance for central government employees by month-end
NEW DELHI: Aadhaar-based biometric attendance systems for central government employees will be fully operational by the end of this month. “The biometric attendance system for central employees will be fully functional by the end of this month,” Information Technology Secretary Ram Sevak Sharma told PTI.
According to Sharma, the attendance of the employees can be tracked through a website, attendence.gov.in, which would be fully operational by the month-end. The website is expected to bring more transparency as it would provide and update information about central government employees on real-time basis.
The attendance web portal will use the information entered in the biometric devices and will act as a centralised management information system (MIS) for attendance. Under the new attendance system, the employees would be able to mark their attendance using biometric reading devices in various government offices.
It will facilitate employees mark their attendance at other central offices also which would help the government to track their movements. According to the information available on the attendance web portal, as many as 163 central government organisations have registered themselves for the same.
At present, as many as 1,816 biometric attendance devices are operational in various central government offices. There are around 43,000 registered users (employees), out of which 18,262 are Aadhaar verified.

Modi has high hopes from India

, by indianmilitaryveterans

PM says nation doesn't need to emulate anyone.

NEW DELHI: INDIA does not need to emulate the model of any other country on the path to economic development because democracy and the entrepreneurial spirit of its 1.25 billion people are capable of driving growth at a fast pace, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said.

"India does not need to become anything else. India must become only India. This is a country that once upon a time was called 'the golden bird'. We have fallen from where we were before. But now we have the chance to rise again," Modi said in an interview with CNN aired on Sunday.

"If you see the details of the last five or 10 centuries, you will see that India and China have grown at similar pace. Their contributions to global GDP have risen in parallel, and fallen in parallel. Today's era once again belongs to Asia. India and China are both growing rapidly, together. That is why India needs to remain India," he said, responding to a question about a perception among people that India will be the next China.

Modi made it clear that India would not compromise on its legacy of democracy to achieve faster economic growth. Asked specifically if he envied the power wielded by the Chinese government, Modi replied that a person like him may not have become the Prime Minister if there was no democracy.

"If China is one example, then democratic countries provide another example. They have also grown fast. You can't say that growth is not possible because of democracy. Democracy is our commitment. It is our great legacy, a legacy we simply cannot compromise," he said.

"If there were no democracy then someone like me, Modi, a child born in a poor family, how would he sit here? This is the strength of democracy." Modi said he had a roadmap to channel the "unlimited talent" of Indians.

"I have no doubt about our capabilities. I have a lot of faith in the entrepreneurial nature of our 1.25 billion people. There is a lot of capability," he said.
During the interview, his first since he became the PM, Modi indicated that he believed China would not allow its territorial disputes with countries like the Philippines and Vietnam to escalate. "Look at how it (China) has focused on economic development. It's hardly the sign of a country that wants to be isolated. It wants to stay connected. That is why we should have trust China's understanding and have faith that it would accept global laws and will play its role in cooperating and moving forward," he said.

Asked if he worried about China's behaviour towards its neighbours, Modi replied: "India is different. It is a country of 1.25 billion people. We can't run our country if we get worried about every small thing. At the same time, we can't close our eyes to problems."

Responding to a query on Russia's annexation of the Crimea, he said India's viewpoint is that "efforts need to be made to sit together and talk, and to resolve problems in an ongoing process".

On the issue of discrimination and violence against women, Modi said the dignity of women is a "collective responsibility" on which there could be no compromise.

"We have to revive the family culture in which a woman is respected and considered equal, her dignity encouraged. The main thing here is girl child education. By doing so, the possibility of empowerment will increase," he said.

Asked what he did in his spare time, Modi replied: "Look, I'm not the 'not- working' type. I derive pleasure from my work. Work gives me relaxation too. Every moment I am thinking of something new: making a new plan, new ways to work."

Recruitment to non-gazetted posts on the railways – Adherence to prescribed qualification in recruitment from open market regarding

, by indianmilitaryveterans

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA (BHARAT SARKAR)
MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS (RAIL MANTRALAYA)
(RAILWAY BOARD)
No. E (NG)-II/2005/RR-l/8.
New Delhi, dated: 28/08/2014
The General Manager (P),
All Zonal Railways/Production Units
Chairmen, Railway Recruitment Boards (RRBs)/Railway Recruitment Cells (RRCs)
Sub: Recruitment to non-gazetted posts on the railways – Adherence to prescribed qualification in recruitment from open market regarding.
Attention is invited to instructions contained in Board’s letter of even number dated 29/6/2006 which debar acceptance of allied/related qualification in lieu of the qualification prescribed by this Ministry and stipulates that candidate in possession of the qualification possessed in line with the extant instructions may only be considered for employment on the railways.
The above instructions were issued to streamline the already perturbed system of open market recruitment, wherein, candidates with similar qualification were being treated differently by different recruiting agencies leading to the matter open for litigation.
However, over a period of time it has been observed that recruiting agencies are seeking clarification from this Ministry on following accounts
(i) recognition of institutions;
(ii) recognition of courses from regulatory bodies, if any, or other nodal bodies;
(iii) whether the course is offered through regular/part-time/distance learning/Membership of Association;
(iv) duration of course; and
(v) Equivalence.
Referring each and every issue to the nodal Departments/Ministries results in inordinate delay in finalizing candidature of candidates which further results in more complications viz. expiry of panels, candidates taking legal recourse etc.
Taking above things into consideration, instructions contained in letter dated 29/6/2006 ibid have been reviewed and it has been decided by the Board that empanelled candidates in possession of prescribed qualification from institutions run by Central Government/State Government/Bodies enacted by Act of Parliament or State Legislatures or recognized by Central Government/State GovernmentIBodies enacted by Act of Parliament or State Legislatures be allowed to join without further going into the issue of recognition. Validity or otherwise, of such recognition, if required, will be confirmed by the concerned recruiting agency, contacting directly to the BoardlUniversity or the Council as the case may be.
These guidelines do not affect in any way the instructions circulated vide letter No.E(NG)II12010IRR-l/17 dated 08/12/2011.
Cases decided otherwise in the past need not be re-opened.
Please acknowledge receipt.

CG Employees Launch Countrywide Stir Demanding 7th Pay Commission Interim Relief

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Indian Military Veterans

The Central Government employees are going to launch nationwide protests, stressing that their 11-point demands, including interim relief for the 7th Pay Commission, be granted.
Duraipandian, the General Secretary of Central Government Employees Federation, said, whenever the Pay Commission is constituted, interim reliefs are announced. But this time, when the 7th Pay Commission was announced, we weren’t given interim relief.
We want the new pension scheme to be revoked and old pension scheme to be reinstated. Outsourcing of Central Government jobs to private firms must stop. And, we want the more than 6 lakh vacancies in various central government agencies, like the Railways, Income Tax Departments, to be filled up.
We are going to launch nationwide Dharna protests (except Jammu and Kashmir), demanding that these 11 conditions be fulfilled.
