Disparity in disability pension between Officer Cadets and Recruits

(Note : Comment moderation would be slow for a few days during the absence of Maj Navdeep Singh)

Our officer cadets who are boarded out with a disability attributable to, or aggravated by military service are getting a raw deal.

Such cadets in all military academies are entitled to only Rs 1275/- per month as a disability ex-gratia (likely to be notified @ Rs 3500/- per month soon). Moreover this amount is not categorised as ‘disability pension’ and such cadets are not entitled to the status of ‘ex-serviceman’, ECHS or any other military facility which is granted to retired or released officers.

On the other hand, a recruit who may get injured on the first day of training is entitled to proper ‘disability pension’ alongwith the status of ‘ex-serviceman’, ECHS and all facilities that are available to released Jawans.

A hypothetical comparison of an officer cadet and a recruit for 100 % disability is as follows :

Officer Cadet
Pay Scale : Regular scale of Rs 15600 Basic + Rs 5400 Grade Pay without MSP

Monthly Ex-Gratia on being boarded out with a disability attributable to or aggravagted by service : Rs 3500/- per month

Recruit
Pay Scale : Regular Scale of Sepoy

Monthly Disability Pension : Rs 4600 Service Element + Rs 3100 Disability Element + Rs 3000 Constant Attendant Allowance

An anomaly which needs to be addressed at the earliest.

Dear Navjosh,
Regards. Could you, please, enlighten me as to who gets the Constant Attendance Allowance. As far as my knowedge goes, only ( R) only 100% disabled soldier is entitled for Contant Allowance and not every disabled soldier. You are also requestested to clarify how much is the minimum service element with the such cases of disability.

Col K D Menon said...

A Recruit starts his Colour Service the day he becomes a recruit, whereas an Officer Cadet starts his service only after he gets commissioned. This is in contrast to civil services where the period of training is included in service for pay and promotions. This anomaly needs to be addressed first. The rest will follow.

Maj Navdeep,
Regards
It is good to see that you have good knowledge about officer rank benefits.
I give one more comparison about other ranks & officer rank. An officer gets his Lt. Col Rank in 13 years and upgraded in PB4. Whereas Sep gets his Hav rank in minimum 13-14 years and remain in PB1 with tradesman for next 10- 12 years. In case IAF/Navy may be full remaining service. Is it justified?

SATTY'S CORNER said...

The only way to correct this anomaly is to call the gentleman cadets(GC)as officer cadets during trg but on paper they should be as commissioned offrs as in the case of tech grad entry.As it is they are drawing the pay of Lt during trg.Also the trg period should be counted for promotion / pension for all purposes.On commission they should get GP of 6100/-.This is a gross disparity and should be taken up for resolution by Services HQ.There would not be very many cases but it is unfair.

pawan said...

Maj Navdeep,
this is not an anomoly but a fall out of the status of a cadet (period of training not counted as service) vis a vis a recruit whos training period is counted as service period.

This can only be resolved aftwer the change in the status of cadets training period.

Anonymous said...

in iaf, met and engg officers are taken in as officers from day one. i believe that matter of taking all cadets as officers was taken up by service headquarters but was shot down at ministry level.

Joy said...

Dear Navdeep/Navjosh,

Thank you for raising an issue which will reveal the mother of all anomalies. As many patrons have already pointed out, the anomaly lies in the fact that the date of seniority of an officer commences wef the date of commission and not from the date of joining for training. However, fixing date of joining for training as date of seniority may not solve the issue. We have so many different types of entries.. NDA,Direct,TGC,10+2 Tech,UES and so on. Some get trained for 1.5 years, while some other only for 9 months. Some get ante-date seniority for even their duration in a college/university. Some can serve only as short-service and get a seniority loss while opting for permanent commission.While I fully agree that, training period should be counted for seniority just like any other Group A services, these issues of duration of training also is required to be addressed.

hi navjosh.. i'm a regular at your blog.. just wanted to enquire about maj navdeep;s well being... since his absence has been a lill longer than usual...

pradosh said...

Nice thread. there are lot of disparities between officer cadet and a recruit:-
(1) recruit gets paid from the day he joins service whereas cadet gets paid only on completion of 3 yrs cadet training at NDA n equivalent academies.
(2) service of recruit is counted towards pension from the day he joins service where as for officers, initial 4 yrs of Cadet/gentleman cadet/air cadet/sea cadet is not counted towards pensionable service
(3) cadets don't get a permanent I card whereas recruits get
(4) cadets cannot avail facilities for dependents like Form D(railway concessions), canteen facilities etc.,

further regular entry cadet(NDA) enters into a bond for pmt commission as a minor prior to joining academy. bond is also signed by the parent before cadet joins academy. what is the locus standi of such bond which is executed with a minor. further can the parent of a minor execute a bond for his child which will bond him for his entire life? if some oficer wants to resign on the above pretext, can't he do so?

I D Sharma said...

Dear Navjosh,
As far as pay is concerned a Genleman cadetis getting stipend during training period and on successful training when He is commisioned, he gets the difference in full pay of a Lt. as arrears. There shall be no extra outlay from the exchequire then what is the hitch. To be frank the problem is our beurocracy. Due to addition in service by two years to the seniority of service officers the edge enjoid by the beurocrats may disappear. So who cares if the defficieny in officers of Armed Forces is inceasing every month. They may wake up if another 1962 happens but not otherwise. MERA BHARAT MAHAN. JAI HIND . I D

When passing out of IMA in the Dec Batch. The newly commissioned Officer gets around 21 days leave before joining his new Regiment. This leave is counted towards the next years leave, while it has started in the previous year. I wonder why?

Anonymous said...

@Veteran Chattwal

Navdeep/Navjosh has already clarified that the figures are for offrs/recruits with 100% disability. Yes CAA is only applicable to 100% disabled pers.

Secondly those who have stated that offr cadets are not at par with recruits as far as being on roll of the org is concerned. Let me remind you that all offr cadets are entitled to full back wages based on proper scale of a Lieut with retrospective effect once they pass out. And Naval offr cadets are under the Navy Act even durign the time they remain cadets.

Absolutely important issue raised by navdeep, hope people are listening.

"Such cadets in all military academies are entitled to only Rs 1275/- per month as a disability ex-gratia (likely to be notified @ Rs 3500/- per month soon). Moreover this amount is not categorised as ‘disability pension’ and such cadets are not entitled to the status of ‘ex-serviceman’, ECHS or any other military facility which is granted to retired or released officers".
All these would be available to a person who is getting any kind of "PENSION". This Ex Gratia is an eye wash basically.

Sir,
It is quite sad that we the one who are boarded out on medical grounds are treated as such by the organization. we joined the academy giving a tough interview but a moment changed everything. even after getting boarded out we have to run here and there for the meager amount which we have been entitled from post to post. And though the order is out for the raise of this ex-gratia ,God only knows how much we have to run after the accountants and clerks of pcda .

Hi Everyone,

I am Ex-NDA 112 course , after completing my training at NDA , I went to IMA where I sustained a injury in my 3rd Term and got boarded out....Its very sad that a young boy who joins the academy to become an officer to serve his country but due to one single incident he gets out of the academy...and after that ARMY does not even think of rehabiliting them ...they just leave us to our fate...which passes a very wrong message in the society... I think ARMY being such a big organization should come forward and accept such cadets and take a leap to rehabilate in whatever capacity they can.....I really want to take things forward and want all the support from you all so that any such incident happening to anyone from the coming generation should not face such problems...

Lt Cdr (Retd) Ranjan Mukherjee said...

I am an ex jag officer from navy. i have filed a case in principal bench aft on behalf of some retired naval officers saying that the cadet time period should be counted as qualifying service for pensionary purposes.

A long struggle is ahead of us. i came into the picture pretty very late by which time the damage was already done. Nevertheless, we must fight on.

this is a good cause where the clauses contained in the pension regulations stipulating that only commissioned service will count as qualifying service can be declared as unconstitutional. If that happens, a lot of issues will get resolved by itself.

any naval officer with retired with about 17 years of service is a good candidate to challenge this stipulation.

Hope it gets done soon.

Nice to see senior officials like you are coming forward to take up this cause.

Someshwar said...

one thing i would like to inform all of u that ex-gratia per month given to boarded out cadet is 3500 pm . this amt is fixed as per sixth pay commission that minimum pension of any person cannot be less than 3500. This amt is basically fixed to sweeper , safiawala on their retirement as there pension. as ex-gratia award is nothing but a synonymus word used in place of pension the amt fixed is equivalent to safiawala and sweeper of central govt emp. so one could imagine how rudely this amt has been fixed and they have treated an excadet equivalent to sweeper. for proper fixation of amt of ex gratia cadets have to move to CAT court for redressel of their claim

Raghu Killers-Kohima said...

I also had to face similar problems.
I was medically boarded out from OTA (SSC-70) with 30% disability in 2000. I get disability pension as well as Ex gratia which is meager.

Recently I had applied for the ECHS facility on the grounds that the Gentleman Cadet comes in the category of an officer (it is clearly mentioned in the application form which depicts the ranks of the Officers as well as the other ranks, starting with Gentleman cadet at the base and which goes up to General. On this basis I was issued with a Temporary ECHS Card from the local polyclinic, ie 61 Sub Area. I was also instructed to pay 60,000/- which is now the one time fees applicable for officers (which was earlier 18000/-), which I have paid. (MRO 573440/17 dt- 17.08.11.

Now I have recd a letter from the Regional CGHS that this temp Card has been revoked and I need to return back the same to the Polyclinic 61 Sub Area with immediate effect. The letter also says that Ex GC's are not eligible for the ECHS facility. If so, why is it mentioned in the form. Kindly enlighten me.

Sir,your point about the ECHS application is correct.I have also seen that.Why dont you reply back and ask CGHS about that.

Someshwar said...

has any one thought why ex-gratia award for cadet is fixed rs 3500. the basis for calculation as per 6cpc is
for pension is 50 % of basic + grade pay last drawn. therefore the minimum basic is 5200 rs and minimum grade pay is 1800 which becomes 7000 and the 50 % of is 3500. which is the minimum pension that can be given to any person . this has been taken as basis and the ex-gratia has been fixed to 3500. where as the cadet on commissioning is on grade pay of 5400. so the ex-gratia should also be fixed as per 5400 grade pay not 1800 grade pay which is anomaly

hello,
all ex-cadet
as per my opinion the minimum ex-gratia p.m should not be less than 10,500 + applicable da rates .
present ex-grtia 3500 p.m is not applicable to us it is for the goup D employee
the basic of Lt is 15600 + 5400 GP total amount rs 21000. so as per set up rules 50% of the last pay drawn + GP becomes 10,500. this is what should be the ex-gratia P.M to a cadet . govt has treated ex-cadet like a group d employee

A correction to above for Pallavi, a GC is considered an ESM for employment purposes and is given priority 1 in ESM catagory reservation for Civil Services. This is also applicable to state civil services.

Saurabh/ all
Please visit the links I sent in the blog on this subject i.e. 3rd last post, pl read through and then comment. lets keep compliacations to the least. There are 5 states which are saying that "Officer cadets boarded out of training academies will be treated as ex-servicemen only for the purpose of employment in civil services", additionally the Indian navy is also saying the same thing. At least see the post before commenting?
here's a lok sabha order, "Recruits/Officer Cadets who are medically boarded out due to attributable causes be given the eligibility for employment assistance through ex-servicemen reservations and self-employment facilities by the issue of suitable administrative instructions. They however, need not be categorised as ex-servicemen.
Action Taken: The recommendation was referred to the Department of Personnel & Training. The Department have issued necessary orders vide their Office Memorandum No. 14024/3/95-Estt. (D) dated 4.6.1996,

THEREFORE, IF YOU NOW FORM A PART OF A GROUP THAT IS COVEVERED UNDER ESM RESERVATION AS PRIORITY 1, THEN YOU ARE ESM FOR WHEREVER/ WHENEVER THERE IS AN ESM VACANACY BE IT STATE OR CENTRAL. THIS IS LOK SABHA TALKING ABOVE. ITS A DIRECTIVE. THE RTI YOU CHAPS HAVE GOT IS SUSPECT AND YOU MUST THINK HOW TO QUESTIONS WRTTEN REPORT LIKE RTI...TIGHTEN THEIR NUTS fyi.

Dear friends,
there is a new twist after the release of new definition of ex-servicemen released recently vide Notification dated 4th Oct 2012 issued from Ministry of personal, Public grivance and pension, in which they have added Ex-recruit at row no 6 and granted ex-servicemen status for all pupose to those cadets boarded out on medical ground and in receipt of disablity pension. This time too they left the Ex-cadet on mercy of god. Moreover, the new notification has enabled the ex-servicemen to apply for all category i.e group A, B, C, and D services. earlier it was restricted to c and D only. the new notification on one hand has given relief to ex-recruit on other hand left Ex-cadet with empty hand. as both are trainees and both are boarded out on same ground there is huge disparity b/w them. On one hand rounding of disablity benefit is given to ex-recruit on other hand same is denied to ex-cadet. clear voilation of constitution.

The MT-6 at Delhi sends the paper to PCDA Allahabad. Most of the time the paper is not traced in Allahabad and U will keep waiting. The same case had happened to me also. So, I will recommend you to first contact the MT-6 Delhi whether they have received your paper of not then only other things can happen. any further help if needed from me then contact to me on my no 9408530534 after 7 PM or before 8.30 am i will help u
with regards

I am an ex cadet from NDA boarded out on medical grounds in 2008. I have my CSD Card made and am in receipt of my ex gratia. Would like to know if my CSD facilities are extended to AFD items like cars?

Sir,
I joined IMA on 12th July 2007 and was boarded out on 4th Feb 2009. They gave me 30% disability for ex-gratia with disability pension. Kindly explain whether I am eligible for ex-servicemen? Whereas, I have seen an order stating that recruits are being given the said status!
Regards,
Ankit
