Govt. is denying the reduction in disability pensions of the soldiers. What is the truth?
Govt. is denying the reduction in disability pensions of the soldiers.
The 100% disabled soldiers especially of higher ranks/longer service have been hit hard by the new formula.
They will get substantially lower disability pension than their civilian counterparts i.e. peons, constables, police inspectors, sweepers, IAS officers, police officers etc.
However the loss for the defence personnel with lower levels of disability will be lesser. In few cases defence personnel may get marginally higher disability pension than their civilian friends also.
To correct this anomaly, the defence personnel should be given the disability pension as per the following formula:-
ORs/NCOs: Rs 12000 or 30 % of LPD whichever is higher
JCOs: Rs 17000 or 30 % of LPD whichever is higher
Commissioned Officer: Rs 27000 or 30 % of LPD whichever is higher
Kindly see the table below:-
