ONE MORE CIRCULAR ISSUED FOR BANKS NOT ACT ON SANGAM PROJECT PPOS.-CIR-181





ONE MORE CIRCULAR ISSUED FOR BANKS  NOT TO ACT ON SANGAM PROJECT  PPOs.- CIR 181.

The Pre 2006 retirees are being issued with revised PPOs  under  SANGAM PROJECT. 

It has come to the notice that, the Rate of pension  mentioned is mostly incorrect ,  that is , it is Reduced  / Increased from the existing rate.

Due to this, the Banks have immediately effected the reduced Rate and Recovered the excess amount paid thus putting the pensioners in to hardship.

But  the PDAs have not effected the increased Rate .

The PCDA had issued a Circular  163 in this regard,  to verify before acting on the PPO. But the PDAs have not bothered about the circular  and effected the revision and  recoveries.

Organizations like IESM and Exwel Trust . represented the hardships faced by the veterans/ families to MOD and PCDA.

Now  the PCDA has issued another circular No.181 instructing the PDAs  not to act on  the PPOs if there is any variation in the Rate already being paid, instead they have to inform the PCDA through the Annexure  as per the circular for confirmation  and corrections.

Affected veterans/ families are requested to note the same and request the Banks not to effect the Sangam Project PPOs if there is any difference  from the existing rate of pension.

CALCULATION OF FAMILY PENSION AS PER CDA CIR-502





HOW FAMILY PENSION IS CALCULATED IN CDA CIR 502.
For Example- For  the Rank of Sgt. Group- X

The Minimum fitment  emolument -     For Sgt.  Gp- X………………14890.(CIR-503)
Maximum pension……………14890/2= 7445.
Formula for Family pension= 60% of Max pension of pensioner.
In this case…………………max.pension=7445
Hence  Family pension………………..7445 X 60%= 4467. This is the minimum family pension.
See Cir 502- table no 6.  It tallies  for Sgt. Gp- X   15 yrs of qualifying service.
Now the corresponding  Cir 501.
For the same   Sgt, Gp- X   the pension is calculated on Maximum fitment –ie  18290(. Cir 471.)

So, max .pension will be   ……..18290/2=9145
For   15 yrs of QS…………..9145 X 15+8/33= 6374.  Ref cir 501  Table; 17.  Tallies.
 Now see how it is related to cir 502. And calculated according to Rank, Group and QS.

Take the example  of Sgt, Gp-X, QS 15yrs.
Pension………………….6374       FP = 6374 X60% = 3824  but the Minimum pension is 4467.(1)
See the Table 6 of 502…………….it tallies. And the rate  4467 is continued up to QS 18.5.

Now for QS 19 yrs,  the pension of pensioner is 7493 (cir 501)
So Family pension……………………7493 X 60%= 4490…………………………..(2).
It tallies with cir 502. For sgt – gp-X, Qs  19yrs.
This is how  Family pension is calculated  and Tabled in Cir 502. For all the Ranks and all the Three services, Army,  Navy  and Air force.
NOTE
But in earlier Circular 397-Annexure III, there was only one Rate for a Rank and Group  ,calculated on the Max.pension  of Rank and group of pensioner irrespective of date of retirement.   That was the min and max pension , only one rate.  The lesser QS is also was getting the Max family pension.

Now as per this circular, the Rate is calculated on PRORATA basis and it is disadvantage to the families.
In the same way for  SPECIAL FAMILY PENSION AND Liberalised Family pension  CIR 503
Special family pension-   Max.pension  X 120%
Liberalised Family pension :             Max.pension  X 200%.
But for commissioned Officers,  the same previous formula (Cir 397 -II) is followed.
For example:
  As per Cir 500 Annexure-A
For the rank of Major-  Maximum pension= 18205
Family pension  at  60% …………………..18205 X60%= 10923 – table 2  Family pension ..OK
 For the Rank of Brigadier:  Max.Pen= 29145
Family pension at 60%.................29*145 X 60%=17487…..Ok
THIS IS THE ANOMALY AND DISCRIMINATION. TO BE ADDRESSED .

ONAM GREETINGS.


We, the Exwel Trust Greet the people of Kerala  on the occasion of
ONAM FESTIVAL.


THE OROP STRUGGLE AT THE FINAL STAGE-

A final solution to the ‘One Rank One Pension’ row remained out of reach despite hectic back channel talks, as the protesting ex-servicemen today rejected government's formula saying an attempt was being made to “short-change” them.

“The government is hell bent on short-changing. There are only three points of contention," a source here said.
Sources said the government wants 2011 to be the base year, besides no 3 per cent annual increase. The government also wants payment to begin from April 1, 2015 as against the agreed date of April 1, 2014.


OROP: Veterans dismiss govt proposal, deadlock on 3 points

New Delhi, August 26

Talks between the government and representatives of the retired veterans of the forces to break the One Rank One Pension (OROP) impasse remained inconclusive tonight. “The agitation will continue as it is,” Major General Satbir Singh (retd) of Indian Ex-Servicemen Movement said after the talks.
Late in the evening, a group of retired soldiers met Army Chief General Dalbir Singh Suhag. The veterans refused to make public the content of the talks and the offer, if any, made by the government to call off the agitation.
