I sincerely believe that AV Singh commission has not helped at all but had it not come, Major would be getting Grade Pay of 7600 today.
Can someone comment on that..

@ JP Char

Sir,

It 50 % of 67000 (Min of HAG band) plus notional benefit of 6000 as MSP i.e 67000 + 6000 = 73000. Now divide 73000 by 2, u get 36500 as pension.
