New Pension Scales for PBOR : CoS report implementation

The new scales for pre-2006 PBOR have been published / notified and can be downloaded and accessed by clicking here.

My first reaction - Utter Confusion !!!!


vnatarajan said...

As "recoed" by Com of OROP, the COs have been excluded. And the basis- not 70% of the Notional Maximum? - what about 2200 crores? Now it shd not exceed 1500 crores!

Anonymous said...

One of my Military Pensioner friend has pointed out, an example:

Pension opf JCO Rs 13590
Pension of LT Rs 13500

Pl chk if this is correct?

JUSTIN said...



I hope this confusion is not deliberate ,so that another committee will be detailed to clear this confusion and thereby further delay the benefits reaching the affected JCOS and ors

Hameed Ali said...

Dear Sir,

I like to know my father aged 73 now H/Lt. retired from Army before 1989. Is he eligible for this new revision of pension or not.

Anonymous said...

Maximum Pension of a Sub Maj from X Gp is only Rs 13450/- and minimum pension of Lt is Rs 13500/-.By and large, the tables are OK.Need not to be withheld as suggested by Lt Col KB Mathur.

Anonymous said...

Does the Govt. official check the correctnes of tables or merely signs. What a joke IAF pension for X Gp. LAC 15 years 5519/- CPL 5395/- Sgt 5492/-

He was probably referring to cases where MCPOs & MWOs revised pension is 13590/-.

Anonymous said...

The report is quite reasonable. Anomallies as pointed out are raised without carefully reading the report.

JUSTIN said...

@ anonymous 2.55 pm
yes u r right the pension of 15 yrs gp x lac is 5591 where as the pension of 15 yrs gp x sgt is 5492.
how this can be ??? how a lower rank gets more pension then a senior rank.
maj navdeep can u throw some light on this anamoly.

Navdeep / Maj Navdeep Singh said...

Anony 2.55 / Justin

That is because the weightage available to a Sepoy is more than a Hav.

Anonymous said...

Sir,Hon offr rank is given 2 an M W O in the last year of his service 4 superanuation. As per 6 pc Hony offrs r given Offrs M S P and Grade pay . It is terribly disappointing 2 see this order where Hony offrs r not considered 4 improvements. Are they not going 2 work out 4 post 06 Hony offrs . What an order it is where serior rank with many more years of creditable service is dis reguarded. Hope it will be corrected and Offrs upto the rank of Major r not placed bellow men in payment. thank u .

Dear Lt.Col Mathur, Mr.Justin, Mr. Hameed Ali and some Anonymous.

Pointing a finger is quite easy, I could not see any problem in COS Report Implementation. Now the report will be implemented in Toto except one point concerning to Post 2006. Sep & Nk's Pen is more than Hav because of the weightage. We all must appreciate the Hard Work done by everyone involved in making this Jumbo and Crystal clear Circular.

Dear Hamid your father is very much eligible for this new revision of pension and infact everyone right from 1953 to pre 2006.

For post 2006 point was,at some place in Cos report there was option given & also accepted by Fin. Min. that they will have Option either to draw pension @ 50 % in VI CPC or draw as per this report.

They will be beneficial (spec with 28 yrs & above svc)if they draw as per this report. Hope the Govt. will come out with another Notifying letter on this.

Lastly implementation date sholud not be 01-07-2009. It should be atleast the MSP implementation date i.e. 01-09-2008.

Many thanks to all.

the JWO s in 3,4,5 groups in 73,96, 2006 were equal in pay ext but now it is deferent pension ?

JUSTIN said...

@ maj navdeep txs 4 clarification.
yes the 10.8.6.yrs weightage announced by gom is creating anamoly.this weihtage itself is anamolus becuase in air force earlier 15 yrs starting bond was 4 all.and there is no time scale promotions in air force. so by applying this weightage govt has reduced the gap of pen. benefit to lower ranks. what is the way out. the affected lot can apply for higher pension then lower rank???
pl advise.

JUSTIN said...

@ maj navdeep, here is some contradicting application of cos report. the recommendation was 5 cpc max is to be applied notionally to 6 cpc fittment table as per sai 1/s/2008. for gp x sgt max of 5 cpc is 5945 x 1.86=11057.7 +6200=17257.7/2=8629x21/33=5492.
now here the pay taken as 11057 is wrong it should be as per 6 cpc fittment table of gp x sgt and should be 11160 and the pen will be 5523. bz 11057 pay point is not there in 6 cpc fittment table.

Dear Navdeep,

A pre-96 pensioner, Nb Sub who passed away in Aug 2007 is survived by a 35 year old son (heir). Can he seek Arrears with this set of recent orders. If so, what can one guide him...

All adm Job said...

Dear Navdeep,

As per Page - 2 Hav garnted rank of Hony Nb sub shall be allowed pension of Rs. 226/-.

One side govt has issued orders that Hav granted Hony Rank will be given pension equvilent to Nb sub. is it not confusing.

Dear Navdeep will you please through some light on the issue.


Rajeev Behal

All adm Job said...

A pre-96 pensioner, Nb Sub who passed away in Aug 2007 is survived by a 35 year old son (heir).

His son cannot claim any thing under these orders since date of implementtaion of this letter is 01 july 2009.

Other wise he can claim arrears from 01.01.2006 to Aug 2007 if not received till date.

All adm Job said...

Dear Justin,

How you reached the figure 11160 please clarify so that I can through some light on the issue.

JUSTIN said...

@ all adm job ex sgt rajeev behal
the 6 cpc fittment table 4 gp x sgts starts as per prerevised 5000-100-6500 so it starts from 9300 to 12090 & 11160 is 1 of the fittment stage of 6cpc gp x sgt scale and there is no such basic as 11057 considered by cos report in 6 cpc gp x sgt fittment table.
i hope i have cleared the point.

ANIL said...

Dear Major Navdeep,
What happened about notification about Army officers? Defence minister gave statement in Parliment that review of pension will be for both officers & PBOR. Any news

rajan said...

CAN ANY ONE CAN CLARIFY THA FOLLOWING DOUBT PLS. Kindly look at the table 112 of circular .
' sgt granted 1st financial upgradation (ACP-1) shall be elligible for revised pension for the rank of JWO from table -116 even thought the PPO indicates rank in which pensioned as SGT ACP-1 . Is it applicable to PBOR retd before 2006.

SR said...

@Maj Navdeep sir,
Here I find the contradicting application of CoS report. I was discharged from Indian Air Force as Warrant Officer Gp X on 2nd Aug 2006 after serving 32 years 08 months and 12 days. My pension is fixed as per new scale (Corrigendum PPO dated Feb 2010) as follows - 15310 + 4600 (GP)+ 2000 (MSP) + 1400 (Gp X)= 23310 @50% = 11655/-
Now if I refer Table 120 of page 141 of the circular ibid, it fixes the pay of warrant officer retired before 2006 for 28 years and above in column 12 as revised pension Rs 13105 almost fixing it 2000 Rupees more than the post 2006retired warrant officer. Will be grateful if my confusion is cleared by any one.

Is there any latest table (March2010)available for the Ex-Service men to know the current pensions with latest DA details who retired on 30-09-1986 and had served for 30Years 02 Months and 19 days in Army.

Anybody can through light on the actual fate of the proposal of 70% pension of last drawn payment,,,has it gone to ditch ?

joshsuhanasafar said...

Dear Major Navdeep,

With implementation of OROP, the pension of pre-06 pbor is exceeding pension of post-06 pbor.
Is this not a major anomaly? Kindly suggest where should we go for obtaining explanation in this regard.

Dear Maj Navdeep sir,
In VIth CPC, The Govt of India has assured three financial up-gradation under ACP for all its employees.
For example- a sepoy will get three ACP of Nk, Havand and N/Sub at a period of 8-16-24 years of service. Similarly, a direct recruited Havildar will get three ACPs of N/Sub, Subedar and Sub/Maj at a interval of 8-16-24.But Direct entry JCOs (Corps of Engineers) have been denied third ACP. Are the not Govt employees? Is it not in justice with them? Can't we frame some policy/rule to give them their right of third ACP. Thanks and regards
Sub Maj Sunil Kumar
