With regard to Nagaland Senior Government Employees’ Welfare Association (NSGEWA) memorandum to state chief minister on November 9, State finance department Monday clarified on admissibility of benefits under ROP rules 2010 for employees retiring from service after May 31, 2008 and before April 1, 2010.
Department’s officer on special duty (revenue) K. Ashi Khieya, in a statement issued here, clarified that it was not correct to say that employees retiring between the mentioned periods were completely deprived of benefits under ROP 2010. The statement said Rule 19 sub-rule (2) of ROP 2010 rules clearly laid down procedures to be followed in respect of those category of pensioners. It stated that clause (ii) and (iii) of sub-rule (2) provided for notional fixation of pay w.e.f. June 1, 2008 up to the date of retirement/death, and for working out entitlement of pension/family pension under ROP rules 2010, adding that however, the pension/family pension worked out under ROP 2010 would be payable w.e.f. April 1, 2010, prior to which no arrears would be admissible.
Department official stated that clause (vi) of sub-rule (2) of Rule 19 also provided that commutation of pension would be admissible at/upto 40% of pension admissible as on April 1, 2010 under ROP 2010. It was also pointed out that in case commutation value had already been paid/authorized at pre-revised rates, the difference between the amount already paid/authorized and amount now admissible under revised rules would be paid.
Reiterating that ROP rules 2010 were made w.e.f. June 1, 2008 only for notional fixation and actual benefits from April 1, 2010 and that no arrears of salary or pension would be payable for the period before April 1, 2010, department stated that basing on these principles the benefits as due and admissible have already been extended to those category of pensioners.
On death-cum-retirement gratuity (DCRG) and leave encashment, state’s finance department said those were calculated on the basis of pay and allowances actually drawn by an incumbent prior to date of retirement/death. However, as those employees retiring after May 31, 2008 but before April 1, 2010 were entitled to draw pay and allowances as per pre-revised scale under ROP ’99, the official said their DCRG and leave encashment would have to be calculated on the basis of the pay and allowances actually drawn by them, as per pre-revised scale. The statement further added that this was in view of the fact that ROP rules 2010 provided for only notional fixation of pay for the above mentioned period without any cash benefits.
In conformity with the stated provisions, the ROP 2010 rules have clearly specified the admissibility of DCRG and leave encashment based on duty pay actually drawn, prior to retirement as per Rule 19 sub-rule (2) clauses (iv) and (v), finance department added.
