        Dear Mr.Mazumdar,

        I have documents obtained uder RTI Act from MHRd, and six old IITs Khragpur,Madras,Mumbai,Kanpur, Delhi anf Roorkee, where such conversions have been permitted evel till November 2010, including C&AG audit objections raised on this, and all IIT Faculties have been given nthis conversion facility from CPFG scheme to Pension scheme, even nthough majority had opted in writing to stay back in CPFG scheme,, way back in 1990s when Govt, gaveoption for them to change over to Pension scheme. Inspite of MHRd fully aware of this they have allowd such conversions.MHRD seems to be using two different ways of dealing with IIT Faculty and other Teachers of Central schools, both being funded by same dept.

        I can email you the scanned relevant documents, which perhaps might help in forcing the MHRD to agree to your request.

        Kindly reply email giving your contact cell number

        • We the faculty of NIRD are also struggling to get another opportunity to opt from CPF to GPF. Ours is a small organisation governed by Ministry of Rural Developemnt, GoI. Way back in 1985 GPF was introduced to NIRD. Some of us did opt CPF and realized in the year 1990 and start representing our Governing Council but in vain. Out of about forty opted out of GPF now only fifteen are still left and keeping hopes that we may get another option.
          I request you on behalf of those few faculty who are in CPF to send us a few documentary references so as to build the pressure on our body. Though, NIRD is under MoRD, but it is still considered as an autonomous body.
          Thanks for efforts and looking forward to be in touch with you try meeting during our next visit to New Delhi.

        We are working in National Institute of Industrial Engineering,Powai, Mumbai Autonomous body of MHRD ministry. Sir both of us are working since 1986/1992. Starting of our service we have filled the CPF form but after that we have not received any option form to switch over from CPF to GPF. Along with us there are few staff and faculty members. We have tried from our side with the ministry but unfortunately not received any favorable answer. Our board has also approved our matter and our institute is also willing to take the financial burden.

        We request you if possible please give us your valuable suggestion in this matter. Please give us your email so we can send u mail in this matter.

In this year my transfer count is 59.I have given 5 choice stations in my transfer application form (150,700,140,704,699).out of these 5 choice station only (150)choice-1 is vacant. But another teacher from KV Hasimara (transfer count-69) his home town is at nearby kv alipur duar(140) just 15 km from his hometown. Actually he wants for transfer to KV Alipur Duar.(only 15km from kv Hasimara).But another teacher posted at KV Alipur duar(140) wants for transfer at KV Cooch Behar(150) and his transfer count is 36.They planned to block my choice station(150),after that they will exchange with each other. That’s why teacher posted at KV hasimara(40km from KV coochbehar) filled up 3 choice station like(140,700,150).
    Sir, My wife has been suffered 2 times from jundis and my daughter (2 yrs old) suffered two times from typhoid diseases caused by drinking water. I am also suffering from serious back pain due to non availability of good treatment.
    I also look after my parents who are staying alone at home town cooch behar(20 km from KV Cooch behar-150).My father is 67 yrs old retired person is suffering from high BP and Heart diseases.They do not have any one to look after them except me.

    I have been struggling for a long time for this conversion from CPF to GPF. I am glad you have managed to get the approval process to an advanced stage. I think the Govt. needs to be non-discriminatory in their decisions. It cannot be yes – except for all – not by any selective process , since our old age depends on a Pension in consideration of the steep rise in living costs. I wish you all success in your endeavours with the Ministry officials.

  • S K Verma says:

    Dear Mr Mazumdar, Thanks for your efforts put for benefit of all KVS employees who could not shift from CPF to GPF in time. I have seen your response as “Perhaps No” to a question asking whether this facility will be made available to already retired KVS employees. As the employees retired are also from your fraternity, why their interest also should not be looked into by your association to whom they were members when in service.I request you to please include them too in your appropriate demand. God bless you.

    • A.S.Mazumdar says:

      In spite of all out efforts,being pragmatic, I had to use words ” perhaps no” because of Govt. negative response to very positive stand taken by AIKVTA & KVS. All the more after my retirement & I not being a CPF optee have no locus standaii to take up the matter in any forum except for helping other organisations who are fighting for the cause.I too wish all should be given a chance to opt for GPF retrospectively to benefit from the pension scheme.

    dear shri mazumdar, please get the details of decision in respect of some employees in cpf may get benefit, Please refer to the The case nos. A.P.VERMA ….. Petitioner versus NATIONAL COUNCIL OF EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH & TRAINING ….. Respondent ,W.P.(C) 8491/2011 And also
    A.K.SACHETI ….. Petitioner versus NATIONAL COUNCIL OF EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH & TRAINING ….. W.P.(C)s 8489/2011 & 8491/2011 in delhi high court decided on 25th feb 2013 wherein operative part is: Therefore, when similarly placed employees of the respondent have been extended the benefit, it would be unreasonable and improper to deny to the petitioners the benefit of the GPF/Pension scheme merely because they were earlier engaged in the service of the respondent NCERT. In this behalf we must observe that the petitioners had been put on probation for a period W.P.(C)s 8489/2011 & 8491/2011 Page 10 of 11 of two years subsequent upon their appointment to the relevant post in PSSCIVE, Bhopal. The Tribunal failed to appreciate that it is settled law that once a person is appointed to a substantive post through direct recruitment in an open selection after competing with internal and external candidates the appointment on the said post is a fresh appointment. Therefore, in our opinion, the petitioners have been subjected to hostile discrimination, although they were appointed by the same recruitment procedure as others, only because they were working with one of the establishments of the respondent earlier. In our view the same constitutes unequal treatment amongst equals and is violative of Article 14 of the Constitution of India.
    14. We, accordingly, allow the writ petitions and set aside the order of the Tribunal. Consequently, the respondents are directed to extend all the benefits of the GPF/Pension Scheme after making necessary deductions to both the petitioners. No costs.”

    pl see if some people can get some early relief from such decision


    Dear Majumdar Sir,
    This time we are very happy this case moved with a positive mode.

    I am working in Damodar Valley Corporation(DVC).When i have joined i have opted CPF scheme.Sir,Please give us a last chance to convert cpf to gpf scheme for DVC.


    In DU, our able administrators have done the following interesting things:-
    Many of the employees, who did not specifically opt for CPF between 01.05.1987 to 30.09.1987 (and thereby making themselves eligible ‘automatically’ for GPF/Pension) have been placed in CPF due to some illegal options given subsequent to the cut-off date viz., 30.09.1987;
    A large number of employees, who opted for CPF between 01.05.1987 to 30.09.1987 (and thereby making themselves ineligible for GPF/Pension) have been placed in GPF/Pension by way of subsequent options, which are invalid; and
    Some of the employees have neither been given CPF benefit nor Pension for reasons known to GOD only.

    You may please have a close look at the judicial interpretation given by the Hon’ble Supreme Court in Union of India v. S.L. Verma (2006), which lays down the law of the land at present.

    Please keep me informed with the developments at your end. It may be better if you may please forward this mail to as many of your friends and colleagues as possible to motivate them to come out of their ‘comfort zone’ and raise their voice for a genuine cause.

  • We happy to inform you that a few faculty (10) working since 1982 on wards till date in National Institute of Rural Development & Panchayati Raj,under Ministry of Rural Development, GoI, have unfortunately opted for CPF instead of Pension Scheme, even though it was available during 1985/1987. We have repeatedly requesting our higher officials to give us one more option to switch over to pension scheme, but we have not been considered. Now Pension is being looked after as a social welfare measure for retired persons by our beloved Prime Minister Mr Modji, we humbly request people at policy making level may re look into this issue, probably in the coming 7th Pay Commission to kindly provide one more chance to opt. Also, do justice in this regard. This is the only source of income for all retired govt. employees as you know.
    This irreparable loss can be restored by this new government at the Centre. This will be a kind gesture for all, who will be retiring soon. Your help & guidance is solicited.

  • P.A. Satheesh & Smt. Rashmi Satheesh says:

    My wife Smt. Rashmi Satheesh, retired as AO-III from BARC a unit Department of Atomic Energy after putting in 38 years of service and myself Shri P.A. Satheesh retired on 31.01.2016 as Assistant after putting in 38 years of service. We both retired under CPF and without pension. We have collectively opted for CPF after DOPT orders, i.e. 30.09.1987 which according to DOPT orders, which says who have opted after the cut off date, i.e. after 30.09.1987 should automatically be under pension scheme. Department of Atomic Energy with out the concurrence of DOPT extended the date for continuing under CPF will 31.12.1987, where we were trapped by this extension, since we both opted to continue CPF after the cut off date. We have also the reply under the RTI, where in we questioned the authority of Department of Atomic Energy who had extended the date for opting from 1.10.1987 to 31.12.1987. DOPT reply the RTI says that no department has the power to extend the date of option for CPF other than DOPT. Here under the RTI reply from DOPT that we two affected parties should be governed by pension. Hence it a request to kindly consider our applications and direct BARC under Department of Atomic Energy to kindly consider our applications sympathetically, since we both husband and wife have retired without pension after putting 38 years of meritorious service.

  • Sir, I retired from the regular service of National Institute of Rural Development, Hyderabad as Director (SFCs). At the time of my joining its service in August 1981, I was having only 18 and odd years of service, and in the said Institute it was 20 years of qualifying service to become eligible. Then in 1986/87, as I felt I do not have the required qualifying service of 20 years, I had to opt for CPF Scheme. To my surprise,the minimum qualifying service of 20 years for becoming eligible for Pension Scheme was reduced to 10 years sometime in 1990s. However, while the NIRD administration has sought written option in 1986/87 when Pension Scheme was first introduced in the NIRD, no such option was given to employees who earlier opted for CPF. This is gross violation of natural justice. For my 18 and odd years of qualifying service, I received altogether less than Rs.5.00 lakh which represented my CPF contribution, employer’s contribution to CPF, and gratuity. Leave encashment and my Medidcal contributions are my other privileges received. Now my fundamental question is Should the Management unilaterally reduce the qualifying service from 20 years to 10 years for pension without giving one more option to those who earlier opted for CPF to switch over to Pension scheme. You may please understad how a retired employee with a total superannuation packet of Rs.5.00 lakh subsist with family for over 15 years after superannuaation. I sold all my land cites, house, and now I and my wife are living on the charity of our children.I request the Govt. of India should immediately declare that those employees with more than 10 years of qualifying service who opted earlier for CPF though they have more than 10 or 15 years of quqlifying service at the time when the GOI had reduced the qualifying service to 10 years. In fact, an option should have been given to such employees atleast. We are on road during the twilight years of our life, without any saving for our survival and medical needs. We are on starvation diet indeed. If we call the GOI of today a Welfare State, correct this anomoly immediately. I retired in May 2000 and the last salary that I had drawn as an academic senior was a paltry Rs.30,000/-(all-inclusive).A peon in Central Government gets this much salary, thanks the 7th Pay Commission. Also the CPF-optees of 1986 are not made eligible for medical facilities during their post-retired life. It is high time that the GOI wakes up to the gross injustice being perpetuated to old- CPF optees. Thihs is most important. Give us retrospective effect-based Pension option immediately. I doubt if the CPF-optees of 1986 will atleast leave some money for their cremation. I am 76 years old and a responsible citizen of India.Can I expect some relief even after 16 years of our superannuation. Thank You.-Prof. K.Siva Subrahmanyam, former Director(SFCs), National Institute of Rural Development,(Ministry of Rural Development)Rajendra Nagar, Hyderabad-500 030.Phone 09848070062.

  • I should not have been denied the opportunity to exercise my option to the policy of GOI when it reduced the period of qualifying service for pension-cum -GPF scheme from 20 years to 10 years.In fact, I did not opt for GPF in 1986/87 as I was left with a total qualifying service of 18 and odd years (less than the then requisite qualifying service of 20 years). The GOI should not penalise those who possess more than 10 years but less than 20 years of qualifying service. An option should have been given to them to ascertain if such employees would like to switch over to GPF-cum-Pension Scheme as they satisfy the 10 year qualifying service.I was pleading for this switch over since late 1980s AND the Hyderabad CAT wanted the NIRD,which comes under the Ministry of Rural Development, to consider offering a fresh option to the earlier CPF-optees of NIRD.-K.Siva Subrahmanyam, ex.Director (SFCs), NIRD, Hyderabad.

  • Employee of ISRO says:


    Dr.Anand Kumar sharmas CPF to GPF conversion after 23 years of qualifying service is pure fraud case.

    He got blessings of many top level officials like ,Dr K N Shankara and Dr.G.Madhavan nair , both have become popular in 2G scam.
    For people who created billion dollar loss to Indian Government thorough 2G scam by violating several norms, violating CPF /GPF conversion law is not a big thing.

  • Ravindran says:

    Dr.Anand Kumar sharma,Deputy Director of Mechanical Systems Area, Staff No: IS0 2137 , ISRO satellite center,HAL airport road,Vimanapura post,Bangalore-560017,joined Government services in 1984 and moved to ISRO in the mid of 1985. During 1990 he voluntarily exercised an option to switched to CPF.

    He was allowed to switch over to GPF in the year 2007 December ,after 23 plus years of qualifying service as a special case.

    Referring to Department of Pensions and pensioners welfare circulars available in following link,


    Sl No.8) O.M. No.O.M. Date 4/1/87-P&PW(PIC-II)
    Sl No.9) O.M. No.O.M. Date 4/1/97-P&PW(PIC-II)

    Above OM have given option to exercise conversion from CPF to GPF (vice versa)within 20 years of qualifying services for the staff members who are in service as on 01st August 1992.How ever Dr. Anand Kumar sharma who was under CPF at the time of issue of these orders has not exercised any option (who was voluntarily opted for CPF in 1990), When CPF to GPF switch over options are allowed in 1992 and 1996.

    After 1996 no such circular /amendments have been made by Department of pensions (as per the above mentioned website).

    Department of pension http://persmin.nic.in/Pension_Rules.asp , clearly mentions that

    “Earlier, the Government was giving option to CPF subscribers to switch over from CPF Scheme to GPF Scheme (Pension Scheme). The last such option was allowed based on the recommendations of Fourth CPC. As a number of options have already been allowed as and when substantial improvement were made in the pension scheme and the practical difficulties involved in retrieval of records and adjustments to be made, demand for further option was not recommended by the Fifth CPC and there is no proposal with the Government to consider any further change in options.”

    In the year 2007 keeping in view 6 th CPC , Dr.Anand Kumar Sharma was allowed to switch to GPF even after 23 years of qualifying services.Generally Department of expenditure, Ministry of Finance should approve these special cases.It looks there is no clarity about approval from Department of expenditure/Finance Ministry.Whoever speaks about this in his office are tortured and compelled to resign with the help of his strong influence in Departmental Head Quarters.

    It is universal truth that ISRO is doing great achievements- no doubt about it , one can not ignore the contribution of KV school teachers to the country.KV school teachers are also contributing equally towards nation building by educating our kids.
    Quality of education in KV schools is several times higher when compared with private convents which charges huge amount which middle cadre Government employee can not afford to pay.

    Dr.Anand Kumar sharma,Outstanding Scientist ,Staff no. IS0 2137 , ISRO satellite center,HAL airport road,Vimanapura post,Bangalore-560017 has granted conversion from CPF to GPF after 23 years of qualifying service.
    Anand Kumar sharma joined NAL-CSIR in the mid of 1984 and joined ISRO in the mid of 1985.
    He opted for CPF in the year 1990.
    In 1992 and 1996 Department of pensions pensioners welfare has framed uniform policies for Department of Space,Atomic energy and Electronics, (OM 4/1/87-P&PW(PIC-II) dated 23/07/1996 and 4/1/97-P&PW(PIC-II) 12/10/1992). The OM says those technical staff who are already in service as on 1st August 1992 will be given one more fresh option to switch over from CPF to GPF and vice versa, how ever within 20 years of qualifying services.

    Dr.Anand Kumar sharma has not exercised any such option in 1992 and 1996.

    However in 2007 December keeping in view 6th CPC benefits Dr.Anand Kumar sharma was converted to GPF-cum-pension scheme after 23 plus years of qualifying service using his high level contacts in ISRO Head Quarter.

    This case can support KV school teachers case.

  • Employee of ISRO says:

    In the case of Dr.Anad Kumar Sharma ,Outstanding Scientist ,Staff no. IS0 2137 , ISRO satellite center,HAL airport road,Vimanapura post,Bangalore-560017,on his request letter Controller of ISAC (IRS officer) has put remarks as ” conversion from CPF to GPF is not possible ,since 20 years of qualifying service is already completed”.Fax letter of Deputy secretary of Department of space also clearly rejected CPF to GPF conversion ,since he has already completed 23 years of service. Surprisingly no permission is taken from Department of expenditure (Information obtained under RTI) by ISRO in his case.
    ISRO and department of atomic energy have adopted a common policy related to CPF/GPF.
    One of the RTI letter says that Department of pensions has allowed CPF to GPF conversion strictly before completion of 20 years of service, for those who are already in service as on 1st August 1992.

    Department of atomic energy in their RTI reply has conveyed that they have not allowed any employee who are in service as on 01st August 1992 to switch from CPF to GPF,after completion of 20 years of qualifying service.

    RTI reply from Ministry of pensions and Pensioners welfare also says the same.

    Dr.Anand Kumar Sharma case in purely a fraud.

  • P. C. Sikligar says:

    I am CPF holder retired employee (putting 29.8 years of service) request Government of India, to consider my request (along with CPF holders) and provide benefit of GPF keeping in the view of humanitarian back ground because without pension it is very very difficult to survive now a days especially in old days. Government was kind enough to ask option twice but due to lack of awareness and proper genuineness I made a mistake therefore, I humbly request Government of India, and concerned Ministry to consider my and like my types of employees.
