PAY FIXATION OF RE-EMPLOYEED EX-SERVICEMEN
(PERSONNEL BELOW OFFICERS RANK-PBOR)
DOP&T has issued orders on 01.05.2017, regarding applicability of Revised Pay Rules 2016 to persons re-employed in Government Service after retirement including those re-employed Ex-Servicemen. Confederation has been demanding fixation of pay of re-employed Ex-Servicemen (Personnel Below officers Rank) by protecting their last pay drawn in Military service. We have written a detailed letter to Shri Jitendra Singh, Minister of State (Department of Personnel) on 28.09.2016 giving full justification of pay protection, which is published in the Confederation Website – www.confederationhq.blogspot.com on 29.09.2016. We have also discussed the case as an agenda item in the Standing Committee meeting of National Council JCM on 25.10.2016 and Govt’s reply is published in the website on 3rd December 2017 under the heading Minutes of the Standing Committee Meeting. After issuing of orders on 01.05.2017, we have again raised the issue in the Standing Committee meeting of National Council JCM on 3rd May 2017 which was presided by Secretary, Department of Personnel. DOP&T took a firm stand that “PROTECTION OF LAST PAY DRAWN CANNOT BE EXTENDED TO RE-EMPLOYED EX-SERVICEMEN (PBOR) AS THEIR ENTIRE MILITARY PENSION AND PENSIONARY BENEFITS ARE IGNORED FOR PAY FIXATION IN THE RE-EMPLOYED POST”. In cases where the entire pension and pensionary benefits are not ignored for pay fixation (as in the case of officers) the initial basic pay on re-employment shall be fixed at the same stage as the last basic pay drawn before retirement. Inspite of our best efforts, there is no chance in changing the stand taken by DOP&T. we have to explore other means for getting justice to the re-employed Ex-Servicemen (PBOR).
