Don’t lay off or demote employees for disability: Centre

Don’t lay off or demote employees for disability: Centre

New Delhi: No government office should dispense with or reduce in rank an employee who acquires any disability during his service, the Centre has said.

The Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) has amended Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules, 1972, to make it easier for such employees to continue in service or to get invalid pension — which is granted if a government servant retires from the service on account of any bodily or mental infirmity which permanently incapacitates him for the service.

“The case of a government servant acquiring a disability, where the provisions of Section 47 of the Persons with Disabilities (Equal Opportunities, Protection of Rights and Full Participation) Act, 1995 (1 of 1996) are applicable, shall be governed by the provisions of the said section,” says the recently amended Pension rules.

The Section 47 of the Act mandates “no establishment shall dispense with or reduce in rank, an employee who acquires a disability during his service”.

It also makes it mandatory for the government departments not to deny promotion to “a person merely on the ground of his disability”.

If a government servant, in a case where the provisions of the Section 47 of the Act are not applicable, retires from the service on account of any bodily or mental infirmity which permanently incapacitates him for the service he may be granted invalid pension or service gratuity depending upon the length of his qualifying service on the date of retirement, the new rules said.

In case a government servant applies for an invalid pension, he shall be required to submit a medical certificate of incapacity from a medical board.

A reference is invited to para 2.1 of Deptt. of P&PW OM No. 38/37/2016-P&PW (A)(ii) dated 04.08.2016 wherein it has clearly been stated that "these orders shall apply to all pensioners/ family pensioners who were drawing pension / family pension before 1.1.2016 under the Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules,1972, Central Civil Services (Extraordinary Pension) Rules and the corresponding rules applicable to Railway pensioners and pensioners of All India Services, including officers of the Indian Civil Service retired from service on or after 1.1.1973".

2. Further, para 9 of the aforesaid OM states that "All Pension Disbursing Authorities including Public Sector Banks handling disbursement of pension to the Central Government pensioners have been authorized to pay pension/family pension to existing pensioners / family pensioners at the revised rates without any further authorization from the concerned Accounts Officers/Head of Office etc". CPAO has also clarified vide point No.9 of its clarification issued to the banks at Annexure-II of its communication number CPAO/IT&Tech/ Revision (7th CPC)/19 Vol-III/2016-17 / 124 dated 30.08.2016

3. However, complaints from All India Service Pensioners, who are drawing their pension through State Governments, are being received in CPAO that the banks have not revised their pensions for want of any instruction from respective AGs/Designated Authorities

Keeping in view the grievances of AIS pensioners, banks are advised to comply with the instructions of para 9 of DP&PW OM dated 04.08.2016 and make payment to AIS pensioners immediately.

This issues with the approval of Chief Controller (Pensions).
