7TH CPC - THE SKEWED DISABILITY PENSION TO AF PERSONNEL : Skulldugery by the IAS (Indian Army's Shatru) (By Brig Avtar Singh (Retd)

While the facts stated by you in the mail are correct, your analysis/interpretation is incorrect & misleading as you have not looked into the future & implications of Fixed vs %age based DP.
You may like to consider :-
DP is given only after retirement calculated on the last pay drawn.(in 7CPC based on pay in the Matrix).
A person at the time of retirement will be, at least, at the highest time-scale rank with highest corresponding pay in the Matrix for that rank.
Almost all OR will retire at min Nk/Hav level with pay of 44-50000 in the Matrix. DP at 30% will be 13200 to 15000.
A JCOs retiring pay at max service will be 70-90000 with DP of 21000-27000.
Similarly ALL offrs will retire as Lt Col and above with pay range 150000-220000. DP above 45000.
In all am cases % age based DP is beneficial.
Not beneficial cases are likely to be- presently retired OR below Nk rank,presently retired offrs below Maj. Some Retiring Hon Lts. For All these cat of pers a protection clause as at present is required.
Also if & when a portion of DA (50 % etc) is merged with pay there would be corresponding substantial increase in DP in %ge based sys & NO increase if Fixed based.
Also if the Fixed system was beneficial the Civ/Police would have fought tooth & nail to get it, which thy have not!!!
The statements made by MOD on the issue are to confuse the affected pers & mislead all other. Babus are very clever & expert in misleading. Initially even the APPC were misled on the issue.
Rather than take the MOD side, we must fight to get at least parity with the Civ/CPOs in DP.
