8. With a view to
quicken the re-fixation of pension by PDA, tables indicating original pension
(OP) as sanctioned in the PPO(s) from the date following the date of discharge,
existing pension (EP) as was payable on 1.1.96 i.e. revised consolidated pension
under Fourth Pay Commission plus one time increase (OTI), if any (Without
consolidation under this Ministry's letter dated 24.11.97 ) and the revised
consolidated pension (RCP) payable as on 1.1.1996 for different rank
and group of PBOR pensioners of Army/Navy/Air Force discharged during
different period of time is given in Appendix to this letter.
OP means pension as notified initially in the first PPO which may have been
amended subsequently through Corrigendum PPO from the very date or commencement
of pension. In such cases the amended amount of pension will be taken as
means pension as revised and
consolidated from 1.1.86 under Govt. orders implementing Fourth Central pay
Commission recommendations together with one time increase (OTI), if any,
RE-FIXATION OF PENSION
9. The PDAs will arrive
at the revised consolidated pension
(RCP) in the cases covered by the Tables as under:-
(a) The PDA will see the rank and group of the pensioners, date of commencement of pension, and amount of original pension (OP) (basic pension without commutation) from the PPO or in its absence from the pension Certificate (original), Descriptive Roll and Discharge Certificate. The aforesaid amount of basic pension before commutation should exclude other elements such as adhoc ex-gratia amount, temporary increase, adhoc increase, adhoc relief or dearness reliefs.
PDA will then see whether the table relevant for that rank and group and date of
discharge contain exactly the same rate of pension under the column(a) original
pension (OP). If it does, the corresponding existing pension (EP) is the revised consolidated pension (RCP) as 1.1.86 plus OTI
as admissible. If both match, the corresponding revised consolidated
pension (RCP) appearing under column (c) will be the revised consolidated
pension as on 1.1.96 for the rank, group, qualifying service and period of
retirement. In such a case the revised consolidated pension (RCP)
will replace wef 1.1.96, the rate of service pension, invalid pension,
service element of disability pension, service element of war injury pay,
special pension, ordinary pension and mustering out pension (for pre 1.6.53)and
PDA will pay arrears as may be due on account of this refixation. (para 18 also
(c) PDA will complete part II of the application to be submitted by pensioners/family pensioners as per para 23.1 indicating revised consolidated pension (RCP) as on 1.1.96, inter alia, indicating adhoc exgratia, etc. if any, being paid to the pensioners and forward both the copies thereof to the concerned Record office for arranging fixation of notional pay as on 1.1.86 and eventual computation of entitlement of ordinary family pension to the family pensioners.
REFIXATION OF PENSION
WHERE BASIC INFORMATION IS NOT AVAILABLE WITH THE PDA OR THE OP/EP DOES NOT
10.1 Where the date of commencement of pension is
not available the pensioner may be asked to produce the original pension
certificate issued by the Pension Sanctioning Authority and the original
discharge certificate. If entries in both these documents lead to a clear
conclusion, regarding the date of commencement of pension as falling in the
specified period, the relevant column of the table will be referred to by PDAs
for determining the revised consolidated pension (RCP) on the basis of rank,
group, OP and EP where OP and EP must match .
10.2 Where OP is not available or OP as per
records of PDA does not find place in the relevant table but EP matches for the
rank, group and period of discharge and appropriate length of service, the
revised consolidated pension(RCP) as shown under Column (c) against EP will be
paid provisionally but necessary authorisation obtained from PSA and necessary
adjustments made on receipt of authorisation.
10.3 Where OP is not available with the PDAs and
EP does not match with the amount of pension being actually paid but the rank,
group and date of commencement of pension is available or can be ascertained
from pension certificate, discharged certificate, necessary authorisation of
revised consolidated pension (RCP) may be obtained from the PSA.
10.4 In cases where the OP and EP do not match for
a particular known rank, group and date of commencement of pension, such cases
will be referred to PSA(CCDA)(P) /CDA(N)/CDA (AF) for authorisation of revised
consolidated pension (RCP) as payable wef 1.1.96 Cases where original pension
was amended on account of retrospective application of ten month-rank rule wef
1.4.79 or from the date of discharge of such a date falls between 1.4.79 to 30.6.79, OP and EP as per the records held by PDAs will not
match with those shown in tables. There will also be cases where original
pension was reduced as a result of penalty or otherwise reduced by competent
authority. In such cases OP and EP will not match and revised consolidated
pension (RCP) authorisation by PSA will be necessary.
10.5 In cases where OP
matches for a particular rank and group and relevant period of discharge, but
the EP does not match, revised consolidated pension (RCP) authorisation from PSA
will be obtained. However, in the following cases OP will match with the figures
in the relevant table but EP will not match :-
a) Cases where individuals
are/were in receipt of two pensions.
b) Cases where individuals
were re-employed prior to 1.1.92.
10.6 In cases where information regarding group is
not available with the PDAs and can not also be ascertained from
the original pension certificate/discharge certificate produced by the
pensioner, the amount of revised consolidated pension (RCP) payable wef 1.1.96
will be obtained from the PSA.
10.7 In all cases where qualifying service
rendered by PBOR pensioners is less than 15 years, such cases, will be referred
by RO to PSA concerned with requisite application forms of the pensioners for
determination of revised consolidated pension and intimating the same to the PDA

made effective from 1.1.86. while fixing pay on notional basis on each occasion,
the pay fixation formula approved by the government and other relevant
instructions on the subject in force at the relevant time shall be strictly
followed. However, the benefit of any notional increments, admissible in terms
of the rules and instructions applicable at the relevant time shall not be
extended in any case of refixation of pay on notional basis.
12.2 The notional pay so arrived as on 01.01.1986
shall be treated as last pay drawn by the deceased and the ordinary family
pension shall be calculated thereon after taking in to account classification
pay, if any, as on 1.1.86 at the rate in force as on 01.01.1986. This ordinary
family pension shall be consolidated in accordance with the provisions contained
in para 4.1.1 of this Ministry's letter No. 1(2)/97/D(Pen/Ser) dated 24

of basis pay in all cases instead of slab system and shall be subject to a
minimum of Rs.1275/- p.m. and maximum of 30% of the highest pay in the
Government. It has also been decided that the benefit of increased rate of
ordinary family pension introduced w.e.f. 01.01.1996 may also be extended to
pre-1996 family pensioners from the same date. Accordingly, in case of those
pre-1986 pensioners whose ordinary family pension has been calculated on
notional pay under the slab system at the rate of less than 30% as per para 12.2
above, ordinary family pension as on 01.01.1996 shall be re-calculated at the
rate of 30% of the notional pay as determined on 01.01.1986. The additional
ordinary family pension becoming due on account of difference between ordinary
family pension admissible under slab system and at a rate of 30% shall be added

been granted between 01.01.1986 and 31.12.95 at the rate less than 30% of pay
last drawn by the deceased, the benefit of additional family pension admissible
under slab system and at a rate of 30% of pay drawn shall be added to the
consolidated ordinary family pension payable under this Ministry's letter
No.1(2)/97/D(Pen/Ser) dated 24.11.1997. The total of these two amounts i.e.,
consolidated family pension as on 01.01.1996 plus additional ordinary family
pension shall become basic ordinary family pension w.e.f. 01.01.1996 subject to
minimum and maximum limits as above.

Allahabad would authorise payment of LTA to the claimant after examining all
aspects of the case. If the amount
of arrears exceeds Rs.7,500/- (Rupees seven thousand five hundred), CCDA(P) may

anticipated due to any reason, PDAs should advise the pensioners to nominate a
person/persons to receive LTA on account of revision under these orders if they
so desire. For this purpose, the
pensioners may submit a simple application (in duplicate) stating clearly name(s)
and address(es) as well as relationship(s) with nominee(s).

the pensioner after enfacing the same with their acknowledgement.
The original copy should be retained by the PDAs for use, if and when the
contingency arises. After payment of LTA, if such a contingency arises, the
original copy of the application should be attached with the LTA payment account
as a supporting document and sent to CCDA(P), Allahabad, and CDA(PD), Meerut/CDA,
Chennai in case of DPDOs.
22. Where the revised and
consolidated pension of pre 01.01.1986 pensioner will not be beneficial to him
