Implementation of the Govt. decision on the recommendations of
Committee on the issue related to Defence Service personnel and
Servicemen – Minimum guaranteed pension to Pre-2006
Commissioned Officers / Family Pensioners. (Circular No 500) & that payable to JCOs/ORs.

As per above PCDA Pension Circular dated 17 Jan 2013 the Minimum Guaranteed Pension to pre 2006 pensioners was notified to be paid from 24 Sept 2012. The UOI had filed a SLP in the Supreme Court against the judgment of the Delhi High Court which had upheld the order of the CAT Tribunal on the subject issue. The SLP was dismissed today 29 July 2013 by the apex court. The HSC upheld the judgment of the Delhi High Court meaning thereby that the minimum guaranteed pension would be payable from 01/01/2006.

Judgment copy awaited.

This should act as a wake up call for mandarins/ babus of the MOD & they must undertake penance for their acts of omission & commission.It is high time that, now they reconcile to pending cases of Rank Pay & Broad banding of Disability Pension. & other issues.RDOA is doing a wonderful job. We must extend all type of help to them.

@Satish Kumar: They won't need a wake up call. This affects them too, so they'll be wide awake all the way.

@corona8: Any decision of court/statement favourable to defence forces upsets you.God bless you.

@R S Sekhon:"..upsets you.."

How did you reach that brilliant conclusion.
Please enlighten us.

Satish Kumar said...

@corona8 This is your perception. Very amazing ! Why the hell did they go to HSC if benefits were accruing to them also.

High time Ministry of Defence works for its people - Armed Forces rather than against them. We need to have 50% of officers and clerks in MOD from Armed Forces or CDS to be the Defence Minister for always. Defence Minister job should be held only by professionals.

High time Ministry of Defence worked for the Armed Forces and not as its enemy and we do not have to go to court for every wrong (blatant). MOD should have 50% Armed Forces officers and clerks. CDS should be the Defence Minister as a professional is required at that post.

Hope the order spells out all cases to be paid. For pensioners who expired after 1-1-2006 , their spouse ie the family pensioner must be paid the arrears .

I am not clear whether AF forms part of this decision of HSC. OR we have to file a separate case.

@ravi mahajan: A separate "notice" for armed forces was indeed issued as per a news report.

I had provided a link here http://www.indianmilitary.info/2013/07/is-it-partial-closure-for-agony-of.html?showComment=1375177280771#c1384670012200917738

@SK Jain: Your comment on the subject of this blog post was made on the blog post pertaining to the "contempt Petition", so in keeping with the new and highly welcome step of "Blog Discipline", I'm replying to it here.

The problem you have cited has also been reported by others. Does it have anything to do with the introduction of 'Actual Qualifying Service' vide some letter issued by GOI in 2009?

If so, providing a link to that letter would be a great help for obtaining views of others.

It is surprising that even after the Honorable Supreme Court has given a verdict on the Pre-2006 Pensioners that their arrears to be paid wef 1-1-2006, the GOI, Min of Def has not yet taken a decision to implement the same. Is there a higher authority to appeal against the GOI in this regard ?

Very 2 surprising that Goi is keeping silent & there is NO notification from MOD. It is a deliberate attempt to harass & humiliate the Armed Forces Veterans. Any other option?
