    Reduction in Disability Pension for Soldiers 

    The 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) recommended the following on disability pension:-

    The Commission is of the considered view that the regime implemented post VI CPC needs to be discontinued, and recommended a return to the slab based system. The slab rates for disability element for 100 percent disability would be as follows:

    Rank
    Levels
    Rate per month (INR)
    Service Officers
    10 and above
    27000
    Honorary Commissioned Officers
    Subedar  Major / Equivalents
    6  to  9
    17000
    Subedar / Equivalents
    Naib Subedar / Equivalents
    Havildar / Equivalents
    5 and below
    12000
    Naik / Equivalents
    Sepoy / Equivalents

    The above recommendation has been accepted with the approval of the Cabinet and Resolution dated 30.09.2016 issued accordingly. The 6th CPC dispensation of the calculation of disability element on percentage basis, however, continues for civil side which has resulted in an anomalous situation. The issue has accordingly been referred to the Anomaly Committee.

    This information was given by Minister of State for Defence Dr. Subhash Bhamre in a written reply to Shri Neeraj Shekhar in Rajya Sabha today.
