No. 45/86/97-P&PW(A)-Part III dated 10.02.1998 was extended up to 31.12.2007. It was also decided to extend the date of submission of applications for revision of pension/family pension w.e.f. 1.1.1996 of pre-1996 pensioners/family pensioners with reference to this Department’s OM No. 45/86/97-P&PW(A)-Part IV dated 08.05.1998 read with OM dated 30.9.1998 and dated 17.12.1998 for submission of applications by the pensioners/family pensioners covered under these OMs up to 31.12.2007.

In spite of extension of deadline for submission of application from time to time, there may be a few pensioners/family pensioners who could not submit application for revision of pension/family pension w.e.f, 1.1.1996 under the above mentioned orders Some pensioner associations have requested for extending the date for submission of applications beyond 31.12.2007 in such cases. The matter was discussed in the 20th meeting of the Standing Committee of Voluntary Agencies (SCOVA). It has now been decided that in case any pre-1996 pensioner/family pensioner submits an application for revision of pension/family pension in terms of the orders mentioned in para 1 above, the same may be considered and pension/family pension may be revised w.e f 1.1.1996 without insisting on any deadline for this purpose.
