The salary amount and pension is taxable , but you can claim spread over of back salary in previous years income and recompute tax under section 89 and claim rebate of difference between tax on receipt basis and accrual basis and such rebate is deducted from tax payable for current year.

The total amount is taxable, but you can calculate the same with regard to Section 89 which deals with salary received in arrears and get some benefit.
