"We recommend to the department of personnel and training of the government of India to try and make life after retirement easier for a government servant by having appropriate legislation enacted by Parliament or applicable pension rules rather than a 'khichdi' of instructions, office memoranda, clarifications, corrigenda and so on and so forth,” the reportedly bench said.

STATE OF BIHAR , pension was considered as a bounty depending upon the will of the employer which could be withdrawn at any time. It is only after Deokinandan's case, the concept of pension changed since it is held to be a valuable right vesting in a Government servant. It is in the nature of a deferred payment of the amount which a Government employee has earned on account of his service to the State beyond a prescribed period.
