Thank you Dear Madhuji. Regards, S.K.Hota, Bhubaneswar 01/06/19

Dear Mr. T.K.Madhuji,
I have not received any response from you till date.
With reference to my post dtd.29/4/19,I am to inform you that in the mean time, I have received enhanced pension from EPFO on 30/5/19 & arrear enhanced pension on 28/6/19(I had depositted the refund amount with EPFO on 4/4/19).EPFO has charged PF interest at monthly rest as declared from year to year fro 1/11/19 to31/3/19 over my differential pension contribution,but in the arrear pension they have not paid any interest over my arrear pension from 1/7/13 till 29/5/19.They have simply multiplied the enhanced monthly pension with the no. of months from 1/7/19 to 29/5/19.
But,surprisingly,the EPFO regional offices have now put on hold in processing the cases of disbursement of enhanced pension as per verdict of hon’ble Supreme Court w.e.f.June’19 in view of review petition(Diary No.16281/2019) filed by EPFO against the order of Hon’ble Supreme Court in the matter of SLP No.8658-8659 of 2019( on EPFO’s appeal against the verdict of Kerala H.C. passed on 1/4/19)).They are returning the Refund amount already deposited by EPS Pensioners,retired prior to 1/9/14.Even the ministry of Labour ,GOI has also appealed against the verdict allowing higher pension proportionate to the salary saying that there would be an additional burden of Rupees ten lakh crores.The S.C. has decided to consider the appeal of MOL together with the Review Petition filed by EPFO.The SC has adjourned the case to 5/9/19.
The present move by MOL & CPFO has created a confusion amongst the lakhs of retired EPS pensioners of exempted establishments.
In the circumstances,kindly advise as to whether,I will write to EPFO to pay interest on my arrear enhanced pension from 1/7/13 till May’19.Also kindly enlighten me if any retired govt employee has received his arrear pension after many years of his dt. of retirement,he has been paid interest on such arrear pension.
I also request my fellow CITEHRians ,those who have retired prior to 1/9/14 and got enhanced EPS pension from EPFO to enlighten about the interest rate they were charged on their differential pension contribution from the dt. of their retirement till the disbursement of 1st monthly enhanced pension and if any interest they have been paid over their such arrear enhanced pension.

It is interesting to see that two PF Offices in Kerala have already started paying pension based on actual salary without waiting for the Supreme Court verdict to come. I have a few friends in Trivandrum who were asked to pay back the difference amount of PF drawn and have started getting pension at enhanced rates.

Kerala Regional offices have been prompt, in fact in one of the circulars issued by EPFO to regional offices urging them to take action on applications received for enhanced pension, EPFO had drawn attention of Regional offices to the applications acted upon by regional offices, kerala being prominent. In fact Govt & EPFO have been desperately trying to delay issuing enhanced pension. Appeal by Minstry of labour sites fund requirement of 10 Lakh crores, but SC in it's order had specifically said fund posity can't be sited as a reason for stopping a welfare scheme.

Dear Madhu Sir / SK Hota Sir,
Thank you for all the contributions in this forum.
As of now, can the retiring employees get the enhanced pension as per the Supreme Court order ? If they are not giving, is it because of the appeal by MOL and CEPFO ? When is this case expected to be heard ?
Would like to know if the PF offices are accepting applications for the enhanced pension and releasing the same.
Thanks

I understand that EPFO will accept higher pension requests only when we produce a court order. But that is not required because the dictum of Supreme Court should be applicable to all citizen for which separate orders is not required. If they object and not paying higher pension then you will have to go to court and collect an order and submit it to EPFO.

Please find attached a statement showing the data on contribution to PF and Pension fund along with such details as the establishments worked , duration of service etc.
Please let me know if I am eligible for enhanced pension as per SC 's orders . If so . what would be the approximate pension per month that I would get per month. What would be the approximate arrears that I would be required to pay back to EPFO.
For your information , I had submitted a prescribed application form duly filled with all necessarily details and supporting documents from my erstwhile employers to RPFC at Chennai two years ago .Till now there is no reply fro the end of RPFC.
My subsequent and repeated e mail reminders /phone calls to RPFC and Chief PF commissioner at New Delhi have nor fetched any reply . However I understand the matter is under litigation
Based on my statement , please let me know if I am eligible for enhanced pension .If your answer is in affirmative, then I will take it up the matter suitably.
Thanks

The statement shows the total contribution over a certain period. In order to know whether you are eligible for higher pension what is required is the salary on which your employer used to contribute his share of contribution. If he used to contribute on you actual salary which was above Rs 15000, then you would be eligible to get higher pension based on that salary on which the employer had contributed to PF. On the other hand, if he had paid only on Rs 15000, your pension would be based on Rs 15000 only.
