ANSWER

MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF PERSONNEL, PUBLIC GRIEVANCES AND PENSIONS AND MINISTER OF STATE IN THE PRIME MINISTER’S OFFICE (DR. JITENDRA SINGH)

(a) to (d): The lump sum commuted value of pension payable to a pensioner, who applies for such commutation, is calculated in accordance with the Table of the values appended to the Central Civil Services (Commutation of Pension) Rules, 1981. A copy of the Table, presently applicable for calculating the commuted value of pension, is at Annexure. The commuted amount of pension is restored on completion of 15 years from the date the reduction of pension becomes operative.

The existing Table of the values for calculation of lump sum commuted value of pension was incorporated in the Central Civil Services (Commutation of Pension) Rules, 1981 in implementation of the recommendations of the Sixth Central Pay Commission vide Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare O.M. No. 38/37/08-P&PW(A) dated 2nd September, 2008 . This Table is based on LIC (94-96) Ultimate Tables and rate of interest of 8%. While recommending the aforesaid Table, the Sixth Central Pay Commission did not recommend any change in the period of 15 years for restoration of commuted pension. The Seventh Central Pay Commission also did not recommend any change in the said period for restoration of commuted pension.

Hon’ble High Court of Delhi, vide order dated 17.01.2019 , dismissed a Writ Petition No. 1222/2015 seeking reduction in the period for restoration of commuted pension. An SLP(C) No. 8852/2019 filed against the said order of Hon’ble High Court of Delhi was also dismissed by Hon’ble Supreme Court on 15th April, 2019.

At present, in view of the above, there is no proposal to revise the period of restoration of commuted pension.
