Disability Pension of Military Personnel

Disability Pension of Military Personnel

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:

RanksLevelsRate per month (INR)
Service Officers10 and above27000
Honorary Commissioned Officers
Subedar Majors / Equivalents6 to 917000
Subedar / Equivalents
Naib Subedar / Equivalents
Havildar / Equivalents5 and below12000
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.

This information was given by Minister of State for Defence Dr. Subhash Bhamre in a written reply to Shri Dr. Kirit P. Solanki and Shri Rajan Vichare in Lok Sabha today.
