MINISTER OF STATE                           (DR. SUBHASH BHAMRE)

                       IN THE MINISTRY OF DEFENCE
 
(a) to (d): The 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) recommended the following
on disability pension:- 
The Commission is of the considered view that the regime implemented post
6th CPC needs to be discontinued, and recommended a return to the slab
based system. The slab rates for disability element for 100 percent
disability would be as follows: 
Rank

Rate per month (INR)
Service Officers

The above recommendation had been accepted and Resolution dated 30.09.2016
issued accordingly.
The 6th CPC dispensation of the calculation of disability element on
percentage basis, however, continued for civil side which resulted in an
anomalous situation. The issue was accordingly referred to the Anomaly
Committee. The Anomaly Committee recommended that parity with civilians for
grant of disability element which was granted to the Defence Forces
Personnel under 6th CPC may be maintained which has been approved by the
Cabinet. Government orders in this regard are under process.
