  1. As per the fitment the person who retires after 30 years in the same gp of 4600 will get more pension than the person who retires after putting in total service of 30 years in different gps i.e. 16 years in gp 4600, 13 years in gp 4800 and 1 year in gp 5400. Can anyone clarify on this please.

  2. please please cancel the GRADE PAYS's Rs. 2000 and Rs. 2400, since LDC's and UDC's are getting very less benefit, when they are getting MACP's.

  3. In the calculation in option 2 for pensioners what you are mentioning is wrong. Please see the pay matrix. It is not 2.57 for all. In PB3 15600-39100 the multiplication factor is 2.67 and not 2.57 as taken by you. The multiplication factor has been rationalised It varies from 2.57 to 2.67. In some case it is 2.62 also. As for the examples you have given that is fine.Kindly check up.


  4. 7th cpc has not mentioned how to calculate the pension of running staff of railways who have retired prior to 1-1-2006

  5. Sir,
    I have taken voluntary retirement in 1983 after service of 20 years 4 months and 19 days. Even tho I was drawing a pension in PB3 upto implementation of sixthpay commission, I was Fixed at PB2. If I accept this grievance what would be my pension My pension was fixed at 6294, Payband 9300 34800 and grade pay 4200

    I was prooted as Executive Engineer (Class 1 Junior scale) in 1978 and my boss has not recorerd this in my service book, That is the reason for downgrading

  6. Sir,
    I fully agree with Shri S V Raghavan that pension should be calculated on the basis of multiplication factor given in the pay matrix for each level. Multiplication for level 7 ( GP 4600) is 2.62. As such while fixing pension it should be original pension multiply by 2.62 who retired in Grade Pay 4600( now level 7). And not by multiplying by 2.57 as mentioned.

  7. Dear Sir,
    I fully agree with Shri S V Raghavan and D P Shaw that pension should be calculated on the basis of multiplication factor given in the pay matrix for each level.
    Multiplication for level 14 ( GP 10,000) is 2.72. Therefore, while fixing pension the original pension should be multiplied by 2.72 for those who retired in Grade Pay 10,000( now level 14)and not by 2.57 as mentioned.
    The matter may please be placed for consideration of the government to remove this anomaly.
    Dr. P.S. Partap, Professor (Retired) CCS HAU, Hisar 125 004, Haryana
