FIXATION OF PAY TO EX-SERVICEMEN RE-EMPLOYED IN BANKS

TREATMENT OF MILITARY SERVICE PAY

 

            Please refer to our Circular No.29 of 3rd April 2012, reproducing the instructions issued by Indian Banks’ Association (IBA) stating that Ex-servicemen  re-employed in the Banks, who retired on or after 01.01.2006, are eligible for pay fixation in Banks based on the Pay drawn by them at the time of discharge from defence services which would include Band Pay plus Grade Pay but does not include Military Service Pay (MSP).

Now, the Indian Banks’ Association, on receipt of a communication from Department of Financial Services, Government of India, while stating that the above instructions stand withdrawn advised the Banks to follow the instructions stipulated in DOPT Office Memorandum No.3/19/2009 Estt. Pay II dated 08.11.2010, which is reproduced hereunder, in word and spirit.

TEXT OF OFFICE MEMORANDUM No.3/19/2009 Estt. Pay II DATED THE        8thNOVEMBER 2010 OF MINISTRY OF PERSONNEL, PUBLIC GRIEVANCES & PENSIONS, DEPARTMENT OF PERSONNEL & TRAINING (DOPT).

 

Subject:      Fixation of pay of re-employed pensioners -

Treatment of Military Service Pay

The undersigned is directed to refer to the orders issued vide OM dated 5.4.2010 on fixation of pay of re-employed pensioners. These orders inter-alia lay down that on re-employment in civilian organizations, Military Service Pay shall not be admissible.  However, the benefit of MSP given to all retired Defence Forces officers/personnel by reckoning it at the time of calculation of their pension (notionally in the case of pre-1.1.2006 pensioners) should not be withdrawn. Accordingly, while the pension of such re-employed pensioners will include the element of MSP, they will not be granted MSP while working in civilian organizations.

In the instructions issued by the Ministry of Defence vide their letter No. 1/69/2008/D(Pay/Service) dated 24th July 2009, Pre-retirement pay has been defined as under:

(i)      In  respect  of  re-employment  taking  place  on/or  after  1.1.2006  pre-retirement pay for those who retired after 1.1.2006  means the  pay in the  pay band plus grade pay but inclusive of Non-Practicing Allowance (NPA) if any, last drawn before retirement.

(ii)      In case of officers who retired before 1.1.2006 and also those who retired after 1.1.2006 in the pre-revised pay scales without opting for the revised pay scales promulgated on or after 1.1.2006 the pay will be basic pay including stagnating increment and Rank pay plus the Dearness pay and Dearness allowance drawn at the time of retirement.

As per these orders, for pre-2006 retirees rank pay is included as a part of pay but for post -2006 retirees, the MSP is not reckoned in the pre-retirement pay for the purposes of pay fixation on re-employment.  However, for pension purposes the reckonable emoluments are – basic pay + grade pay + MSP + NPA wherever admissible.  Therefore, while MSP is not taken into consideration for the purposes of pay fixation on re-employment, the element of MSP in pension is deducted.

It has been  decided  in  consultation with  the Department of  Expenditure, that since the  element  of  MSP  is  not reckoned in the  pay  fixation on  re-employment, it need not be reduced from the pension either.  Hence, in respect of all those Defence officers/personnel, whose pension contains an element of MSP, that need not be deducted from the pay fixed on re-employment.
