Pension=50 % of last BP + DR(now 38 %)+FMA (1000)(if admissible)

= 50 % of 68000 + DR +1000 (If admissible)

= 34000 + 12920 +1000

=₹ 47920

BP-Basic pay,DR-Dearness relief,FMA-Fixed medical allowance Family Pension

Family pension is payable to the family of an employee on his death in service/after retirement.

Two types :

1.Normal rate of family pension

2.Higher(Enhanced) rate of family pension

1.Normal rate:-Based on last basic pay on the date of death or on the date of retirement Rate=30 % of pay last drawn subject to min. ₹ 9000 +DR (plus FMA 1000 where admissible)

2.Retirement Gratuity

3.Death Gratuity

1.Service Gratuity:-No pension is admissible if qualifying service is less than 10 years.Instead,Service Gratuity is admitted.

Service Gratuity in addition to retirement Gratuity is admissible to those who have completed 5 years of qualifying service.

Retirement Gratuity =1/4 x Emoluments x No. Of completed six months (Max 16½ x Emoluments or 20 Lakh)

Example:- Last Basic pay=68000,DA=25840

Emoluments=68000 + 25840=93840

Qualifying Service =35 years i.e. 70 completed six months

Retirement Gratuity=¼ x 93840 x 70= ₹16,42,200

3.Death Gratuity:- Admissible in case of death of an employee while in service.Payable to nominee.

D.G. Formula=½ x Emoluments x No. Of completed six months

Example :-Last Basic pay=68000 ,DA=25840,Service =35 years

Emoluments=68000 + 25840=93840

Death Gratuity =½ x93840 x 70= ₹ 32,84,400(But max.Gratuity is 20 Lakh)

So here Death Gratuity will be 20 Lakh.

Death Gratuity depends on length of service

1 year or more but less than 5 years:  6 times of emoluments

5 years or more but less than 11 years: 12 times of emoluments

Last Salary details :-Last basic pay=68000 ,DA(38%)=25840

Emoluments=68000 + 25840=93840

EL Encashment=Total Emoluments x 250 = 93840 x 250 =782000

HPL=150 days

HPL Encashment = Total Emoluments x 50 = 46920 x 50 =78200

Total Leave Encashment =782000 + 78200 = ₹ 860200

Commutation amount = 40 % of pension commuted x 12 x commutation factor

 =13600 x 12 x 8.194=₹ 13,37,261

Pension after commutation :- Reduced pension =20400 DR@38% of 34000=12910

Total pension=20400 +12920 =33,320
