Notification for pension issued with effect from 01 January 2016 based on recommendations of the 7th Central pay Commission

The Central Government has notified pensionary modalities for pre-2016 as well as post-2016 pensioners.

For pre-2016 pensioners, as a thumb rule, the existing 6th Central Pay Commission basic pension is to be multiplied by a factor of 2.57. This is however an interim arrangement till the modalities of the higher notional fixation of pension are worked out by the committee constituted for the said purpose. The rule however does not apply to Armed Forces pensioners for whom a separate notification shall be issued by the Ministry of Defence.

The minimum amount of pension stands raised to Rs 9000. It was Rs 375, Rs 1275 and Rs 3500 during the 4th, 5th and 6th CPCs respectively.

The orders for Post-2016 retirees can be downloaded and accessed by clicking here.

Thanks Navdeep for sharing this. I don't know how exactly the revised pension would be calculated for post 1.1.2016 retirees, since despite the increase in full pension by 2.57 times, after commutation of 50%, the amount would be less than what is being drawn now. I am sure our pension office would do the needful to ensure that I don't receive less than what I am getting now.
