7th Pay commission recommendation for Pre-2006 Honorary Naib Subedar

7th Pay commission recommendation for Pre-2006 Honorary Naib Subedar

Pre-2006 Honorary Naib Subedar

10.2.25 The Services have sought that the provision of grant of pension of Naib Subedar to Havildars and equivalent who are given Honorary rank of Naib Subedar after retirement, currently applicable to post 01.01.2006 retirees only, should also be extended to pre 01.01.2006, retirees. The Services have contended that the current policy has resulted in creation of two classes of pensioner’s viz., pre and post 01.01.2006, which is undesirable.

Analysis and Recommendations

10.2.26 The Commission has examined the matter. It notes that the VI CPC had recommended that the pension of all Honorary rank Naib Subedar will be payable by taking this placement as a regular promotion to the higher grade and this would applicable “henceforth.” The VI CPC has been unambiguous as far as the date of effect of the benefit. This Commission does not find any merit in re-opening an issue that has been clearly settled. Therefore no change is being recommended in this regard
