Pension letter for revision of pre-2006 Territorial Army pensioners and ECOs/SSCOs who retired between 1-1-1996 and 31-12-2005

The pensionary modalities of TA pensioners are different than those of the regular army since the concept of weightage is not applicable to the Territorial Army. This had created major confusion for this category of pensioners after issuance of various pensionary letters by the MoD after the 6th CPC. Even the pensionary stipulation of post-1996 but pre-2006 ECOs/SSCOs required clarification. Such officers with pre-commissioned service are entitled to pension on completion of 12 years of service as against 20 years applicable for other commissioned officers.

The Ministry of Defence has clarified on the subject and the letter can be accessed by clicking here. It is again requested that requests for minute details or calculations may not kindly be directed to me.
