Government lowers age limit for old age pension for poor from 65 to 60 years

 

Government lowers age limit for old age pension for poor from 65 to 60 years.      

The Cabinet today approved lowering the age limit for the Indira Gandhi National Old Age Pension Scheme (IGNOAPS) from 65 years to 60 years and increasing the rate of pension from Rs.200 to Rs.500 to persons of 80 years and above. The revised norms would be applicable with effect from 1st April, 2011.

It is estimated that lowering of the age limit would benefit about an additional 72.32 lakh persons in the age group of 60-64 years and living below the poverty line. It is estimated that 26.49 lakh persons above the age of 80 years and living below the poverty line, would become eligible to receive enhanced central assistance @ Rs.500 per month. At present 169 lakh persons above the age of 65 years and living below poverty line are receiving central assistance under IGNOAPS.

The additional funds required will be Rs.1,736 crore for providing old age pension @ Rs.200 per month per beneficiary in the age group of 60-64 years and Rs.953 crore for providing enhanced pension @ Rs.500 per month per beneficiary of age 80 years and above. Thus the total additional requirement will be Rs.2,770 crore including 3% administrative expenses.

As a result of change in the eligibility criteria for receiving old age pension, eligibility criteria for widow pension under IGNWPS and disability pension under IGNDPS will get revised from 40-64 years to 40-59 years and from 18-64 years to 18-59 years respectively.

   2. The matter has been reconsidered in detail by the Board and it has now been held that the instructions contained in para 1 of this office letter No.E(NG)l 70 SR 6/43 dated 13.3.1972 which provide that the benefit of one grade higher shall not be taken into consideration for any purpose including eligibility for selection to Class II posts, is limited in its scope for selection to Class II posts, seniority benefits etc, and does not have applicability to reckoning of emoluments for calculating retirement/death benefits of staff working in the Construction Organisations. As such, it has been decided by the Board that the basic pay drawn by an employee on adhoc promotion in the Construction Originations shalI be reckoned as pay in terms of clause (i) of Rule 1303 [(F.R.9)(21)(a)(i) of Indian Railways Establishment Code Vol.-II/1987 Edition for the purpose of reckoning of emoluments in terms of Rule 49 of the Railway Services (Pension) Rules, 1993. Consequently, the instructions contained in this office letter of even number dated 19.8.2010 may be treated as withdrawn. Cases decided prior to 19.8.2010 need not be reopened.

Pension can''t be withheld due to pending criminal case: CAT

Pension can''t be withheld due to pending criminal case: CAT

New Delhi, Jun 7 (PTI) Pension and increments of a public servant cannot be withheld only on the basis a pending criminal case against him unless he is convicted, the apex administrative tribunal has held.

"It is amply clear that only on the basis of the case pending against the applicant (Primary School Head Master Lakhi Ram), pension cannot be withheld under Central Civil Services (CCS Pension) Rules, 1972," a two-member bench of Central Administrative Tribunal headed by Justice Meera Chhibber said.

The bench also favoured releasing gratuity during the pendency of criminal case but with an earlier judgement of the CAT ruling against it, the bench referred the question on the gratuity issue to a larger bench.

"Gratuity cannot be withheld under rules of CCS Pension Rules. Otherwise also as per the provision (of) Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972, gratuity cannot be withheld," it said.

"Since we have taken a different view about release of gratuity during the pendency of criminal case than what had been held by the coordinate bench in another case in 2009, the matter may be placed before the chairman on administrative side for constitution of a larger bench to determine the clear position of law on the subject," the bench said.

The judgement came on a petition filed by Lakhi Ram, a Municipal Corporation of Delhi-run primary school headmaster, who retired in August 2007.
He had been suspended on August 13, 2001 after his arrest in criminal case relating to a property dispute.
Though he was reinstated in May 2005 and retired in 2007, his annual increments were stopped from 2001 and were not restored even after his reinstatement in service.

The court directed Education Department of Municipal Corporation of Delhi to grant increments to him from the date of his reinstatement to his superannuation and to fix his pay as per the sixth pay revision and determine his provisional pension.
