Subject : Revision of pension of Maj. Genl and equivalent rank Officers in Air Force & Navy retired between 1.1.1996 to 31.10.1996-reg.

The undersigned is directed to refer to GOI, MoD letter No.4(110)/07/D(Pen/Legal) dated 15.07.2009 issued for revision of pension of Pre-1996 retired Major Generals and equivalent rank officers in Air Force and Navy. With the issue of this letter, the revised pension of Pre-1996 retired Major General and equivalent rank officers in Air Force and Navy happened to be higher than pension of some Major General and equivalent rank officers in Air Force and Navy retired between 1.1.1996 to 31.10.1996.

2. The above anomaly in pension had been under examination of the Government for some time. The President is pleased to decide that the pension of Major General and equivalent rank officers in Air Force and Navy who retired between 1.1.1996 to 31.10.1996 will be brought at par with the pension of similarly situated Major General and equivalent rank officers in Air Force and Navy who had retired prior to 1,1.1996 provided that the last pay drawn of a post 1996 retired Major General and equivalent rank officers in Air Force and Navy is the same as the notional pay taken into account for revision of a similarly situated Pre-1996 Major General and equivalent rank officers in Air Force and Navy.

3. Above upward revision of pension, however, will not affect the entitlement of Gratuity that has already been determined. Also, no benefit of commutation of pension will be admissible for the additional amount of the pension.

4. The provision of this letter shall be effective from the date following the date of retirement.

5. This issues with the concurrence of MoD(Fin/Pen) U.0 No. 10(02)/2014/Fin/ Pen dated 30.06.2016

6. Hindi version will follow.


Yours faithfully,
