Original Copy & All Tables



  1. मैं 2011 दिसंबर 31 को सेवा मुक्त हुआ । मुझे एम ए सी पी नायब सूबेदार की पेंशन ₹ 9382/- पर फिक्स किसी जो आज 7 वाँ सी पी सी के हिसाब से ₹24233-4691=19542+2181=21723 मिल रहा है। क्या मेरा पेंशन बढेगा या नहीं¿

  2. These Concordance Tables have been prepared as a ready reckoner for arriving at the pay under 7th CPC for giving parity in pension to pre-2016 pensioners. These C, Tables are subject to the pay fixation rules along with relevant clarifications issued under these rules. There should not be any deviation in this regard. This being the case, the clarification issued by the Finance Ministry( Implementation Cell) dated 3rd August,2017, regarding bunching benefit of one extra increment to be accorded to obviate the anomaly in fixation, is also applicable for notional fixation also. This fixation principle also has to be high lighted prominently.

  3. i was to be retired from MHA on 31/07/2007 but i prefered voluntary retirement on 31/03/2003,..After 7th pay commission i am being paid basic pension @ 25279-/-wef 01.01.2016
    Am i going to be benifitted with 6th july 2017 orders in respect of revision of pension orders?.If yes how much

  4. We are not confused.But definitely as pensioners we are entitled to know the appropriate table requiring to be adopted for determination of correct rate of monthly pension and monthly family pension respectively…..

  5. Concordance Table notified recently is to ensure that the Revised P.P.O. is issued to pensioners with minimum delay.Only when the said document is received,we may get appropriate answer, in the matter relating to variations in grade pay…Till such time we will continue to get the monthly pension/family pension at the existing rates….

  6. I retired on 30/06/2011 in GP 7600 & last pay drawn was Rs 35520 & Rs 17760was basic pension.As per concordance table I would get revised pension Rs 45700/  If my GP was lower say 6600 then my pension would have been fixed at Rs 46900/ much higher & further GP Rs 5400 corresponded to 46350/.46500. GP of Rs 4600/. 4200 & same pay will have same pension as of GP7600. Why pension decreased when GP increased. Is there anamoly in Concordance/ Fitment table dtd 6/7/2017 issued by Min Of Pension . Kindly comments/ reasons.

  7. So far i.e. upto 27-7-2017, pension concordance tables for pre 2016 retired guards and drivers are not given. It leads to ambiguity and some pension refixing officials are following their own method. So I request MOF, DOPPW and Railway Board to release the pension fitment tables immediately.

    • The concordance table has to be adopted by railways on receipt of appropriate orders…We need to assume that the orders issued by Pension Ministry applies to Railways too….

  8. What is the purpose of fixing the notional pay/pension as per3rd,4th,and5th cpc when the arrears are payable only on the basis of7th cpc w.e.f 01-01-2016
