    (a): The Seventh Central Pay Commission (7th CPC) has recommended the minimum pay of Rs. 18,000 per month and uniform fitment factor of 2.57 for all employees. The system of Pay Band and Grade Pay has been replaced with separate Pay Matrices for Civil, Defence and Military Nursing Services personnel. The Commission has recommended abolishing 52 allowances and subsuming of another 36 allowances either in an existing allowance or in newly proposed allowances. Allowances relating to Risk and Hardship will be governed by a Risk and Hardship Matrix. The Commission has also recommended revised pension formulation for all personnel who have retired before 01.01.2016 to bring about complete parity of past pensioners with current retirees.
    (b) to (e): Salary of all employees will increase by at least 14.29 per cent after the implementation of Seventh Central Pay Commission (7th CPC) recommendations. The 7th CPC has mentioned that increases given in Minimum Pay were 27.6%, 31.0% and 54.0% by Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Central Pay Commissions, respectively.
    The anomalies arising out of implementation of the recommendations of the 7th CPC will be examined by the Anomalies Committee which has already been constituted. Based on the report of the Committee, the matter will be considered by the Government and appropriate decision will be taken.

    SAILORS WITH 10 YEARS OF INITIAL ENGAGEMENT TO GET SPECIAL PENSION

    IN THE SUPREME COURT OF INDIA
    CIVIL APPELLATE JURISDICTION
    CIVIL APPEAL NO.2147 of 2011
    T.S. Das and Ors.
    .....Appellants
    Vs.
    Union of India and Anr.
    ......Respondents
    With
    Civil Appeal No.8566 of 2014
    J U D G M E N T
    A.M.KHANWILKAR, J.
    These appeals emanate from the divergent relief claimed by
    the original applicants before the Armed Forces Tribunal
    (Appellants in Civil Appeal No. 2147 of 2011 and Respondents in Civil Appeal No. 8566 of 2014), which, however, involve overlapping points for consideration. Hence, we deem it apposite to dispose of both these appeals analogously, by this common judgment.
    PARA 25 OPERATIVE PART
    Thus understood, all Sailors appointed prior to 3
    Rd July, 1976 and whose tenure of initial active service/empanelment period expired on or after 3
    Rd July, 1976 may be eligible for a Special Pension under Regulation 95, subject, however, to fulfilling other
    requirements. In that, they had not exercised the option to take  is discharge on expiry of engagement (as per Section 16 of the Act of 1957) and yet were not and could not be drafted by the competent Authority to the Fleet Reserve because of the policy of discontinuing the Fleet Reserve Service w.e.f. 3rd July, 1976. The cases of such sailors (not limited to the original applicants before the Tribunal) must be considered by the Competent Authority within three
    months for grant of a “Special Pension” from three years prior to the date of application made by the respective Sailor and release payment after giving adjustment of Gratuity and
    Death-cum-Retirement-Gratuity (DCRG) already paid to them from arrears. They shall be entitled for interest @ 9% P.A. on the arrears, till the date of payment.
