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
27000
Honorary Commissioned Officers
Subedar Majors / Equivalents
6 to 9
17000
Subedar / Equivalents
Naib Subedar / Equivalents
Havildar / Equivalents
5 and below
12000
Naik / Equivalents
Sepoy / Equivalents

The above recommendation had been accepted and Resolution dated 30.09.2016 issued accordingly.

The 6th CPC dispensation of the calculation of disability element on percentage basis, however, continued for civil side which resulted in an anomalous situation. The issue was accordingly referred to the Anomaly Committee. The Anomaly Committee recommended that parity with civilians for grant of disability element which was granted to the Defence Forces Personnel under 6th CPC may be maintained which has been approved by the Cabinet. Government orders in this regard are under process.
