Most of the demands raised by Pensioners have been rejected.

Pre-2006 Pensioners are given option between: (1) to opt for 50% of Notional Pay in the Pay Band + Grade Pay + the number of increments @ 3% rate for the number of years service put in the cadre by them is added; or (2) 2.57 times of 6th CPC formula basic pension fixed from 1.1.2006. However, even this is not Parity in Pension between the past and future pensioners, as that would necessarily grant any up-graded pay scale advantage. The denial of up-graded scale advantage to Pre-2006 by 6th CPC is not set right fully by 7th CPC but only replacement scale benefit is guarenteed with notional increments. 

Basic Pension enhancement from the present 50% of LPD stands rejected.

Additional Pension formula is not changed.

Demand for minimum pension at par with the minimum wage is rejected.

Commutation factor and commutation period are kept same without any change.

Gratuity ceiling is enhanced from 10 lakhs to 20 lakhs; Rate of Death Gratuity is modified to cover between 5 to 11 years and 11 to 20 years slab.

The order of the Health Ministry preventing P&T Pensioners to join CGHS if they were not members of CGHS while in service is discriminatory. All P&T Pensioners shall be allowed to join CGHS without discrimination. This is very favorable recommendation to P&T Pensioners.

Health Insurance Scheme is strongly recommended; In the meanwhile for pensioners outside the CGHS areas, some hospitals empanelled under CSMA /ECHS should be allowed on cashless basis.

All the remaining 33 Postal dispensaries shall be merged.

A strong network of medical facility by combining CGHS, ECHS, RELHS should be explored.

FMA is not enhanced but will continue the same 500/- per month.
