Subject: - Repealing of Pensions’ Act, 1871-reg.
The undersigned is directed to refer to the subject cited above and to say that in accordance with the instructions contained in the Cabinet Secretary’s DO letter No.403/l/4/2014-Ca.V(Vol.V) dated 07.11.2019, a comprehensive review of the old/obsolete Acts is required to be undertaken by each Ministry/Department. As per these instructions, it is important to examine specific provisions of existing Acts, to identify for their repeal or modification of any specific provisions to help in improving governance and case of living.
2.In this connection, it may be mentioned that the Pension Act, 1871 is an old  Act promulgated in 1871. While some sections of this Act arc relating to pension. However, some other provisions of the Act are related to land revenue etc. this department is undertaking study of relevance of provisions in the various section of the Act in the prevalent pension policy paradigms. According, inter ministerial consultation was also undertaken in the year 2016 and some of the ministries/ department had given the comments in the matter. However , since comments of all the central ministries/departments and state governments were not received, no conclusion could be reached in the matter.
3. Hence, there is a need to examine the matter in consultation with all stake holders and take a final view for its retention or otherwise. A copy of Pensions Act 1871is available in this department’s website
4. It is requested to furnish the comments of your Ministry/Department of your ministry/Department by 20th December 2019 so that the same will be consolidated and a meeting could be convened with all the  stakeholders to finalize  the issue at the earliest.
