Sub: Revision of maximum qualifying service for purpose of earning full pension -clarification regarding
By Government order No: FD 2 SRS 2019 dated 11.1.2019. orders have been issued reducing the maximum qualifying service of 33 years for earning full pension by the State Government servants under KCSRs to 30 years.
(2) Certain pension sanctioning authorities including the Accountant General, (Karnataka), Bangalore has sought certain clarifications on the following issues. Accordingly the issues raised are clarified as follows:-
(1) The formula to be applied in respect of the employees whose qualifying service is less than 30 years, i.e., whether it should be proportionate to 30 years?.
The maximum qualifying service for earning pension has been reduced from 66 completed six monthly periods to 60 completed six monthly periods. Pension shall be calculated at 50 percent of the emoluments, subject to minimum pension of Rs.8500/- and a maximum pension of Rs. 75300/- per month. The amount of pension so arrived at, will be related to the maximum qualifying service of 60 completed six monthly periods. For a Government servant who at the time of his retirement renders a qualifying service of 20 completed six monthly periods or more but less than 60 completed six monthly periods, the amount of his pension shall be such proportion of the maximum admissible pension, as the qualifying service rendered by him bears to the maximum qualifying service of 60 completed six monthly periods. Thus, the Formula to be applied is as below:-
(2) Whether the maximum service to be reckoned for calculation of DCRG is 33 years as being followed hitherto and limited to the maximum amount applicable?.
The maximum service to be reckoned for calculation of DCRG is retained to 33 years as being followed hitherto and the maximum limit of DCRG ceiling to 16/½ times the emoluments subject to maximum of Rs. 20 lakh, though eligibility for earning full pension is reduced to 30 years.
(3) Whether the aforesaid revision of qualifying service is applicable to pensioners covered under Triple Benefit Scheme and also to pensioners who were drawing UGC/AICTE scales of pay:-
The changes made reducing the maximum qualifying service for earning full pension to 30 years is also applicable to all those cases of persons who are governed by the provisions of KCSRs, including those drawing UGC/AICTE scales of pay and those covered under TBS.
