The Prime Minister of India,
New Delhi
Sub: Request for Scrapping of PFRDA Bill

We submit this petition to bring to your kind notice certain aspects of the re-introduced PFRDA Bill which will have an extremely adverse impact on the pension and retirement benefits of the Government employees. We may also state in this connection that the contributory pension scheme will be a drain on the exchequer.
The guiding principle adopted in determining the pay package of civil servants is to spread out the wage compensation over a long period of time because of which the wages during the work tenure is low to enable pension payment on retirement. This makes the pension a ”deferred wage”, which the Supreme Court has upheld as such in their landmark judgment in the case of D.S. Nakara Vs. Union of India. As the bill does not provide implicit or explicit assurance of a minimum pension except marked based guarantee, the civil servant even after contributing huge sums to pension fund may end up with no annuity if the invested company become bankrupt or the equity market crashes. Moreover the annuity which would be the pension under the new scheme being not cost indexed will make it difficult for the pensions to make the both ends meet.
The Committee set up by the 6th CPC has concluded that the new contributory pension scheme will increase the outflow from the exchequer from Rs. 14,284 Crores to Rs. 57088 Crores by 2038. The Committee has also observed that the pension liability of the Government which was 0.5% of the GDP in 2004-05 under the defined benefit scheme is likely to decline if the same is not replaced by the contributory pension scheme as envisaged in the PFRDA bill. The Committee has ultimately recommended that the existing “Pay as you go” pension which is presently in vogue will be ideal and may be continued.
Since the new scheme is neither in the interest of the country as it increases the outflow on account of pension liability nor to the Civil Servants for it does not guarantee a minimum pension, we appeal to you kindly cause withdrawal of the PFRDA Bill from the Parliament immediately.

Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,

DA Merger reg.

The 50% DA was merged for all purpose in 2004,The similar situation has arisen. now that the DA has crossed 50% , The Confederation has placed similar demand now.Item No. 13. Merge DA with pay for all purposes including pension as and when the DA rates crosses the 50% mark.Now we have to get similar orders  the orders issued in 2004 are reproduced now for your information. . The expected DA as on 1.7.2011 is 58%

F.No. 105/1/2004-IC
Government of India
Ministry of Finance
Department of Expenditure

New Delhi, dated the 1st March, 2004


Subject: Merger of 50% of Dearness Allowance/Dearness Relief with basic pay/pension to Central Government employees/pensioners w.e.f. 01/04/2004.

The Fifth CPC in para 105.11 of their report had recommended that DA should be converted into Dearness Pay each time the CPI increase by 50% over the base index used by the Pay Commission.

2. This recommendation of Fifth CPC has been considered and the President is pleased to decide that, with effect from 01/04/2004, DA equal to 50% of the existing basic pay shall be merged with the basic pay and shown distinctly as Dearness Pay (DP) which would be counted for purposes like payment of allowances, transfer grant, retirement benefits, contribution to GPF, Licence fee, monthly contribution to CGHS, various advances, etc. The entitlements of LTC, TA/DA while on tour and transfer and government accommodation shall, however , continue to be governed on the basis of the basic pay alone without taking into account Dearness Pay. In case of existing pensioners, Dearness Relief equal to 50% of the present pension will, w.e.f. 01/04/2004, be merged with pension and shown distinctly as Dearness Pension. Dearness Allowance/Dearness Relief converted into Dearness Pay/Dearness Pension respectively would be deducted from the existing rate of Dearness Allowance/Dearness Relief.

3. To ensure that pensioners retiring between 01.04.2004 to 31.01.2005 do not face any loss in fixation of pension, as a special dispensation in their case, DA equal to 50% of the basic pay would be treated as basic pay for purposes of computation of pension in respect of basic pay received by them prior to 01.04.2004. Consequently, element of dearness pension will exist only for pensioners retired/retiring from Government of India up to 31.03.2004.

4. Insofar as the persons serving in the Indian Audit & Accounts Department are concerned, these orders issue after consultation with the Comptroller & Auditor General of India.
