  1. The long awaited Government Order from the Department of Ex-Servicemen welfare, dated 17 Jan 2013 does not provide any improvement in pension to JCOs of Army and equivalent ranks from Air Force and Navy. But it was widely published that the cabinet approval includes the improvement in pension of JCO/OR retired/discharged out of service prior to 1.1.2006. May I know the reason for this bluff.

  2. The orders released by the Govt. on 17th Jan 2013 has made JCOs of Triservices scapegoat.It is delighted to say that who are the persons behind this calculation seems to thought all JCOs are richer than others.THANKS GOD may bless all of you. You people have made a great joke on us publishing improvement of pension of JCO/OR.

  12. 1. I, 2879637W Ex Havildar & Honorary Naib Subedar VIJAI KUMAR have served in Army for 24 years and 02 days and retired on 31 October 2006 (A/N). I have been granted the rank of Honorary Naib Subedar with effect from 01 November 2006 on the republic day of 2007. My original PPO No is S/029763/2006 (ARMY).

    2. It is intimated that I am drawing my service pension from your bank vide bank account No - 2994001301104170 @ Rs 7750/- basic pension vide my P.P.O. No S/CORR/039335/2010 (ARMY) dated 19 October 2010 and subsequent corrigendum PPOs issued by PCDA (P), Allahabad in this regard time to time. I have 24 years of qualifying service at my credit and was pensioned with sanction and payment of my all retrial benefits by taking into account of notional pay applicable for Honorary Naib Subedar in Y pay group in PB-2 pay band of Rs 9300 - 34800 + Grade Pay of Rs 4200 + MSP of Rs 2000. My last basic pay was Rs 4700/- in pre revised pay scale of Rs 3600 - 100 - 5100 in Y pay group in the rank of Havildar. In this regard, I wish to submit that I am fully entitled & eligible to get the pension of regular Naib Subedar in Y pay group. This is conformity of recommendation of 6th CPC in which it is provided that Honorary Naib Subedars are entitled to get pension equivalent to regular Naib Subedar of the same group. Further, PCDA(P) circular No 471 dated 30 September 2011 confirmed the same thing and moreover, the same issue has been decided by Apex Court in SLP cc No - 42/2010 in case of UOI & other V/s Honorary Naib Subedar Sh. Kanwal Singh. Similar judgments were also delivered by AFT, Chandigarh on 27 October 2010 in OA No - 691/2010 in the case of Sh Subha Chand Sheoran & others V/s UOI & others and subsequently AFT, Jaipur also gave similar decision on 11 January 2011 in case of Honorary Naib Subedar Dharampal & others V/s UOI & others vide OA No - 160/2010.

    3. The, being more beneficial, my service pension is subjected to revision with effect from 01 November 2006 @ Rs 8577/- per month in the rank of Honorary Naib Subedar in Y pay group according to provisions contained in Paras No 6.1 & 6.2 of PCDA(P) circular No 397 dated 18 November 2008 (scan of circular No 397 attached as attachment) giving provision that pension in no case shall be lower than 50% of the minimum of pay in pay band + GP + MSP applicable and introduced from 01 January 2006 corresponding to pre-revised scale from which the pensioner had retired for 33 years of maximum qualifying service.

    4. According to the above, my last basic pay drawn of Havildar rank in Y pay group is corresponding to last basic pay of Rs 7160/- in the rank of Naib Subedar in Y pay group. According to fitment table issued by Special Army Instruction – 1/S/2008(table attached as attachment), total revised pay including pay in pay band of Rs 13320 + GP of Rs 4200 + MSP of Rs 2000 = Total revised pay = Rs 19520, which is corresponding of pre-revised pay of Rs 7160. Consequently my revised pension with effect from 01 November 2006 by modified parity method is computed as under:
    50% of Rs 19520 = Rs 9760 x Q.S of 24 years + 05 years weightage = /33 = 9760x29/33= Rs 8577/- per month with effect from 01 November 2006.

    5. That as per instructions issued in last para of 6.2 & para No – 14.1 of above circular 397 dated 18 November 2008 and para 13.1 of circular No – 430 dated 10 March 2010, you are fully authorised to revise my pension & payment of arrear of pension accordingly and as desired by me.

    6. That my pension is further subjected to revision from Rs 8577/- to Rs 9382/- per month vide table No 32 of PCDA(P) circular No 430 dated 10 March 2010 for the rank of Honorary Naib Subedar in Y pay group.

    7. In view of the above my pension should be revised from Rs 7750/- to Rs 8577/- per month w.e.f. 01 November 2006 and from Rs 8577/- to Rs 9382/- per month w.e.f. 01 July 2009.
