Sub: Judgment on fixation of pay on re-employment of ex-servicemen by Hon’ble CAT Bangalore Bench.

I am directed to forward a copy of judgment dated 08.08.2019 in OA 170/17/2018 filed by Shri K Keshava Bhat Vs SSP Puttur Dn & Ors in Hon’ble CAT Bengaluru. The subject matter of the case is fixation of pay on re-employment of ex-servicemen in light of DoPT OMs 3/19/2009-Estt (Pay-II) dated 05.04.2010 and 1101965/2015-Estt (Pay-II) dated 28.08.2015.

(a) Case Details:

The applicant, an ex-serviceman was appointed as postal assistant in initial pay Rs 9910 + GP 2400 in 05.04.2011. Then he represented for pay fixation, counting service in Army following annual increments and to permit for exercising option. SSP Puttur (DK) Division rejected the representation and hence the OA.

(b) Reliefs Sought:
  1. To set aside the orders of SSP Puttur (DK),
  2. Consider his application for pay fixation on re-employment post following one increment each year of Military Service and providing for option, with arrears and consequential benefit,
  3. Grant relief or relief as deemed fit and proper, with costs while applying wrong rules, in the interest of justice and equality.

(c) Hon'ble Tribunals Judgment:

OA was dismissed, on lack of merits, as the Hon’ble tribunal observed that the contention that the applicant wants his pay to be fixed as per para 16 of the CCS (Fixation of Pay of Re-employed Pensioners) 1986 dated 31.07.1986 but would like his entire pension and other retirement benefits to be untouched cannot be accepted.

It is further directed to defend all cases under your jurisdiction of such nature on this ground.

Dr. Badri Singh Bhandari, Whole Time Member (Economics) in his opening address informed the state government officials about the features and benefits of NPS and various initiatives undertaken by PFRDA. He emphasised the use of online generation of PRAN, dashboard facility for effective monitoring of nodal officers and timely submission of subscriber registration forms and regular remittance of subscriber contribution. He reiterated about the issuance of guidelines by State Governments regarding procedure and timelines to be followed by State Governments for registration of new employees, upload of SCFs and remittance of the NPS contributions. He also touched upon the need of resolving pending grievances and withdrawals on priority by the nodal officers.
Sh. Ajay Narayan Jha, Secretary, Dept of Expenditure, Govt. of India in his address stated that the need of contributory system of pension arose due to the twin objectives to ensure fiscal prudence and secure old age income security in the country. Fiscally strong States are important for progress and development as the pension liabilities of the government has been increasing in terms of proportion of GDP. He advised participating State Governments to monitor the performance of NPS implementation with respect to timely completion of NPS related activities at nodal office level.

Chairman, PFRDA, Sh. Hemant G. Contractor, emphasized on the need for the government officials to be aware of the determinants of pension. NPS, being a contributory and market driven scheme, is different from the earlier pension system in the government, which was a formula based PAYG (Pay As You Go) scheme. In NPS, pension is dependent on various factors, such as the contribution amount, period of contribution, regularity in remittances, returns on investment, withdrawals, deferment options and choice of annuity. He urged the State governments to adopt online PRAN generation Module (OPGM) and to ensure effective implementation and monitoring of NPS. He also urged State Governments to ensure extending choices similar to those available to non-government subscribers and also to frame Rules for the guidance of government staff handling NPS in the States.
Quite a few presentations were made by various stakeholders under NPS for the benefit of the participants. As on 31st August, 2018, 28 States have implemented NPS and there are 32.51 Lakh subscribers with asset under management of Rs 1,16,227.49 Cr.
