Inclusion of DA for Calculation of Gratuity
Reference Ministry of Personnel and Pensioners’ Welfare OM no 38/42/2005-P&PW (F) dated 17 February 2005 (copy attached). As per above OM, in pursuance of recommendation of Fifth Pay Commission, the Govt had approved 100% of DA to be added to the pay for calculation of retirement/death gratuity. This was made effective from 1.1.1996. However, it has been reported by the ESM environment that those pensioners who retired between 1.1.1996 and 4.12.2001 have not been given this benefit. You are requested to kindly have the anomaly checked and rectified.
