What are the pension benefits under the 5th pay commission report?

I have retired as anunder Under Secretary to the Govt. of Karnataka 23 years back.The pension I receive today is not commensurate with the high cost of living and with the high inflationary trends today.An increase in my pension will help me a lot to meet and set off the high costs and help me to have a good living.I therefore look forward for some relief from this report.
