  1. deputation and foreign service are different. pension shall be fixed on the last pay actually drawn as per the pension rules of railways if the deputation is found to be in order.

  2. I am railway employee retired on superannuation while on deputation to other central government organisation and was repatriated on last day of retirement to parent cadre.
    Retired as such pension was fixed on the last pay payable in the parent cadre not on the actual last emouluments drawn. This is contrary to the pension provisions of railways. Only in case of foreign service the pay can be calculated on assumed pay in the cadre.
    I need a clarification on this. While zonal railway head quarters were in agreement with my contention the accounts department did not agree to revise the pension to be fixed on the actual pay last received on the day of retirement. Withe ego and half knowledge dogmatically deny the due benefits and drive the employees to courts and to suffer untold hardships.
