As regular readers would be aware, the Supreme Court in KC Bajaj’s case had exposed the hollowness of official procedures and machinations in denying the element of Non-Practicing Allowance (NPA) to doctors of the Central Government.
The orders of the Supreme Court were finally implemented by the Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare which issued universal orders for all affected doctors thereby ensuring that litigation by similarly placed doctors was curbed.
Now, following the same, the Ministry of Defence has also issued similar orders for similarly placed doctors.
The orders can be downloaded and accessed here.
Thanks to our old retired docs, including Col Rao, for following this up.
