Could the M/o Personnel Public Grievances and Pensions, Dept. of Pension and Pensioners Welfare kindly clarify as to what does the OM No.7/7/2008-P&PW (F)dated 13.2.2009 regarding revision of provisions regulating gratuity imply by the following:

"............It is clear from
the above recommendations/
decisions, that the benefit of
adding years of qualifying
service is withdrawn for the
purpose of computing pension
as well as other related
benefits such as gratuity."

Presume it has been decided with the intention of giving full benefit to those with more than 33 years of service and means that retirement gratuity will be paid at the rate of half the number of years of service rendered, without restricting to the earlier limit of 16 1/2 months. For example, one who has rendered 40 years of service will get the equivalent of his last pay drawn PLUS DA multiplied by 20, subject to a maximum of Rs. ten lakhs.

I would be very grateful if the Dept of Pension and Pensioners Welfare could kindly issue an urgent clarification in this regard for the benefit of the pensioners.
