SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2016 Pension instructions for pre-2016 retirees issued, based on 7th Pay Commission orders
The Ministry of Defence has issued the instructions for payment of pensions implementing the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission. The same can be downloaded and accessed by clicking here.
The rates of disability element have not been reduced for now and shall continue to be paid as per existing amounts under the existing percentage based formula till the issue is resolved by the Anomalies Committee.
The note under Paragraph of 12 of the new letter related to non-grant of additional quantum of pension to pensioners aged 80 years and above as far as their disability/war injury elements are concerned is incongruous and shall be taken up with the Government for rectification at the earliest.
The same is the strange result of an incoherent recommendation which was discussed earlier in the post of 30 September 2016 in the following terms: Enhancement of old age pension for disability and war injury pensioners: The strangest part of this entry is the fact that the Defence Services had indeed asked for this, and the commission actually rejected it and the Ministry of Defence has accepted that rejection. I say it is strange because the Government had already clarified way back in 2010 that additional old age pension very much applies to disability and war injury pensioners. Hence the Defence Services HQ had demanded and the 7th CPC and the Ministry of Defence rejected something that stood granted and clarified way back in 2010 by the Government which becomes clear from this letter issued in 2010 which can be accessed by clicking here. This single instance should be an indicator enough of the expertise and institutional memory available at various echelons of our systems.
Unfortunate, to say the least!
