More on implementation of the new dispensation of disability pensions : Swarajya Magazine

As discussed at a number of places in the past few days, the new disability pension formula recommended by the 7th Central Pay Commission and accepted by the Government is not equitable for the defence services. The 7th CPC recommendations for disabled personnel were faulty and unethical, to say the least.

Some quarters have pointed out that the new slab system would be beneficial for all ranks other than commissioned officers. However this is incorrect since the slab system would only be beneficial for those with very little service. It would not be beneficial for any person of any rank who would be retiring on completion of terms. Also, a minimum protection slab could have been introduced in case it was felt that lower ranks would benefit more through the slab system.

Dear Sir,
There seem some confusion. Yes The Disability Pension based on percentage but not that of Pay or Pension. Say the 100% of DP now is Rs 15630/- and not of Pay/ Pension. 30% of this is what I am getting. So the present slab should be beneficial. Please check and elucidate
