Here I am writing the details provided by Mr. Agha Amir regarding Period over Which Arrears of Pension Increases is Payable by Punjab Govt.
- Punjab government had issued directions vide para 1 (b) of its Top Priority / Most Urgent No.FD.SR.III.MISC./2015 dated 15 July 2015 to AG Punjab and all DAOs to implement, among others, Lahore High Court order dated 19-06-2015.
- These 19.6.2015 Court orders specify in para 3 that “In this view, period of seven years (for payment of pension arrears) is not acceptable and the matter is once again placed before the Finance Department for reconsideration. Let fresh proposal in this regard be placed on the record before the next date of hearing. Meanwhile notification dated 17.06.2015 ……shall remain in force….
- Next date for the case was fixed as 29.06.2015 as per para 5 of the court order.
- Now my questions
(a) “What fresh proposal was placed by Punjab government before the Court before 29.06.2015 ? and
(b) whether the Court accepted that revised proposal ?”
- I request all friends to kindly apprise me of the factual position. To my knowledge, DAOs are still not giving arrears of pension from date of restoration of pension to 30 June 2015 to certain pensioners.
