Supreme Court ordered entitlement of pension after 20 years of service for judicial officers.

The Supreme Court today said that the judicial officers of subordinate courts will be entitled for pensionary benifits after rendering a minimum service of 20 years instead of prevailing 33 years.

A special bench headed by Chief Justice S H Kapadia accepted the recommendations of apex court-appointed committee which reduced the minimum service required for entitlement of pension from 33 years to 20.

The bench, hearing the matters relating to judicial infrastructure, approved the suggestions of the Padmanabhan committee recommending the payment of 50 per cent of the last drawn salary of judges to be given as pension.

Justice E Padmanabhan, a former judge of the Madras High Court, had submitted the report to the Supreme Court proposing an average three-fold hike in existing salaries that was recommended by the first National Judicial Pay Commission (NJPC) in 1999.
