    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.
