Subject: Grant of disability pension in respect of non-regular officers released  In low medical category.

Sir,

I am directed to say that the issue relating to counting of full length of service rendered by Emergency Commissioned Officers/Short Service Commissioned Officers in determining service element of disability pension to them has been under consideration of the Government for quite some time. The President is pleased to decide that non-regular officers viz.. Emergency Commissioned Officers, Short Service Regular Commissioned Officers and Short Service Commissioned Officers, who are found in lower medical category at the time of release than the one in which they were recruited and whose disability is accepted as attributable to or aggravated by Military service, will be entitled to service element of disability pension after taking into account the full commissioned service rendered by them as in the case of Regular Commissioned Officers. The rate of service element will be the same as admissible to the Regular Commissioned Officers. Since non regular officers have been brought at Par with the Permanent Regular Commissioned Officers in the matter of grant of Disability pension. There will be no requirement of exercising option by non regular commissioned officers as earlier prescribed under para 1 of this Ministry’s letter No. F. 210795/74/Pen-C dated 30.11.1977. The Special Army Instruction No.6/S of 1965 and this Ministry’s letter No. F 210795/74/Pen-C dated 30th November 1977 will stand modified to that extent

2. Service element of disability pension in respect of non-regular commissioned officers retired before the date of issue of these orders shall be revised prospectively in accordance with these orders. In the case of aggravation, the benefit of service element as per these orders will be applicable only to those who retire on or after the date of issue of this letter. Past cases will not be re-opened.

3. The PSAs concerned shall be required to work out service element of disability pension notionally as admissible from the date of commencement of pension and will be further revised/updated under various orders issued by the Government from the date of issue of these orders. No arrears, however, will be payable due to notional fixation of revised pension for the period prior to the effective date of these orders. No commutation will be admissible on account of additional amount of pension accruing as a result of vision under these orders. There will be no change in the amount of retirement gratuity ready paid to the pensioners.

The pensioners shall apply for revision of service element of disability pension in of these orders as per enclosed proforma, to their respective PDAs, who will refer in cases to PSAs concerned for notification of the modified award.
These orders will be applicable from the date of issue

This issues with the concurrence of Def(Finance) vide their U.O. No. 01/Fin/P/06 dated 30.8.2006
