New Delhi: On the occasion of Good Governance Day, CCS (Pension) Rules Book 2021 was released by Shri Amit Shah, Hon’ble Minister of Home Affairs, Dr. Jitendra Singh, Hon’ble Minister of State, Personnel, PG and Pensions, and Shri Sanjay Singh, Secretary, Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare.

Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare has reviewed and rationalised the pension rules of the Central Civil Government servants and has notified the Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules 2021 superseding the Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules 1972. The Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules cover the Central Civil Government servants appointed before 1.1.2004. The employees appointed on or after 1.1.2004 are covered by the National Pension System. The rules encompass provisions for regulating pension and retirement gratuity on retirement of a Government servant and family pension and death gratuity on death of a Government servant/pensioner.

The Government decided to rationalise these rules and to bring out a revised and updated version of the rules. The revised Rules do not make any changes in regard to entitlement of amount of pension, family pension or gratuity. However, while incorporating the amendments and instructions issued during the last 50 years, the Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules, 2021 bring about several new policy and procedural improvements over the Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules, 1972.
