Reduction in Disability Pension for Soldiers

Reduction in Disability Pension for Soldiers

The 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) recommended the following on disability pension:

The Commission is of the considered view that the regime implemented post VI 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:

RankLevelsRate per month (INR)
Service Officers10 and above27000
Honorary Commissioned Officers
Subedar  Major / Equivalents6  to  917000
Subedar / Equivalents
Naib Subedar / Equivalents
Havildar / Equivalents5 and below12000
Naik / Equivalents
Sepoy / Equivalents

The above recommendation has been accepted with the approval of the Cabinet and Resolution dated 30.09.2016 issued accordingly. The 6th CPC dispensation of the calculation of disability element on percentage basis, however, continues for civil side which has resulted in an anomalous situation. The issue has accordingly been referred to the Anomaly Committee.

This information was given by Minister of State for Defence Dr. Subhash Bhamre in a written reply to Shri Neeraj Shekhar in Rajya Sabha today.
