(A) 33 years stipulation gone for commissioned officers too w.e.f 01 Jan 06, and (B) Classification allowance benefits for PBOR

Full pension after rendering 20 years of service was earlier announced only for those officers who retired after 01-09-2008 while the same was made applicable to PBOR w.e.f 01-01-2006. The Committee of Secretaries had however recommended that even commissioned officers who retired between 01-01-2006 and 01-09-2008 should be allowed this benefit.

The govt has accepted the recommendation and issued orders for payment of full pension to those officers who had retired with 20 years of service or above between 01-01-2006 and 01-09-2008.

The govt has also decided that in respect of PBOR who were discharged / invalided between 01-01-2006 and 31-08-2008, the rates of classification allowance made applicable w.e.f 01-09-2008 would now reckon notionally w.e.f 01-01-2006 for the purposes of determining reckonable emoluments for pension.

The letter issued by the Ministry of Defence to the effect can be viewed and downloaded by clicking here.

Dear Navdeepji

CoS had recommended the same for civilians as well. But, no order has been issued so far in favour of civilians. Has it not been accepted for civilians? If you have information, kindly reply

Orders not yet issued for civilians.

Many Thanks Navdeep. Shall we conclude this means recommendation is accepted for civilians as well. But order is yet to be issued by DoP & PW, pending with somebody, somewhere.
