Disability Pension for Soldiers 

Disability Pension for Soldiers 

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 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 / Equivalent 5 and below 12000
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.  The disability element which was being paid as on 31.12.2015 will, however 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 Husain Dalwai in Rajya Sabha today.
