    UNSTARRED QUESTION NO.2760
    TO BE ANSWERED ON THE 17TH MARCH, 2017

    DISABILITY PENSION OF MILITARY PERSONNEL

    2760. DR. KIRIT P. SOLANKI:
              SHRI RAJAN VICHARE:
    Will the Minister of DEFENCE be pleased to state:

    (a) whether the Government has substantially reduced the disability pension for military personnel, if so, the details and present status thereof and the reasons therefor;

    (b) whether the Government has issued a resolution which has effectively changed the earlier percentage-based system to a fixed slab one, if so, the details thereof and the reasons therefor;

    (c) whether the disability element has been drastically reduced for defence personnel and been notified on three fixed slabs while the civilians continue to remain on the percentage system, if so, the details thereof and the reasons therefor; and

    (d) whether such a move would entitle the civilians to a much higher disability pension than the military counterpart and if so, the details thereof?

    A N S W E R

    MINISTER OF STATE (DR. SUBHASH BHAMRE)

    IN THE MINISTRY OF DEFENCE
    (a) to (d): The 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) recommended the following on disability pension:-

    The Commission is of the considered view that the regime implemented post 6th 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:

    Ranks
    Levels
    Rate per month (INR)
    Service Officers
    10 and above
    27,000
    Honorary Commissioned Officers
    Subedar Majors / Equivalents
    6 to 9
    17,000
    Subedar / Equivalents
    Naib Subedar / Equivalents
    Havildar / Equivalents
    5 and below
    12,000
    Naik / Equivalents
    Sepoy / Equivalents

    The above recommendation has been accepted 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. However, the disability element which was being paid as on 31.12.2015 to the eligible defence service pensioners will continue to be paid till decision on the recommendations of Anomaly Committee is taken by the Government.

Though the committee submitted it's report before completion of tenure the report still laying in unconscious condition. Nobody I going to study it. At least it should be made available to public so that veterans can know it's recommendation
