The Defence Ministry on Thursday said it has referred the representation of the armed forces for a percentage-based system rather than a slab-based one for determining disability pension to the Anomaly Committee of the 7th Central Pay Commission. The move came following widespread criticism from opposition parties and the military establishment over a letter issued on September 30 which had introduced a slab-based system, as recommended by the 7th Pay Commission, for determining the disability pension for defence forces.

In a statement, the Defence Ministry said the 7th CPC had recommended a slab-based system for determining the disability pension, which was accepted by the government.

A percentage-based system was followed in the 6th CPC regime for calculating disability pension for defence forces personnel as well as civilians.

“Service Headquarters have represented that the percentage-based system should be continued under the 7th CPC for calculating disability pension for defence services at par with their civilian counterparts.

“The Ministry has referred the representation of the Service Headquarters to the Anomaly Committee of the 7th CPC for consideration,” the statement said.

What the military personnel are upset about is that civilians will continue to be paid pensions according to the earlier “percentage system”, which means that a civilian employee will have higher disability pension than his military counterpart.

        Disability pension of defence personnel must be on percentage basis and not as per slab system.

                        Why refer an obvious issue to anamoly committee? It will take years to settle. An issue rectified by sixth pay commission after decades has been converted to anamoly.

                          An anomaly rectified by 6 CPC again created by 7 CPC. Now referred to anomalies committee. This is called GOOD GOVERNANCE IN INDIA.

                            Defence Minister says the notification is still a DRAFT.lt;br/gt;The service HQs had represented against this CLEAR Anomaly much before the Government accepted the 7 CPC recommendations. Why has A CLEAR ANOMALY AND INJUSTICE TOWARDS ARMED FORCES BEEN ACCEPTED BY THE GOVERNMENT?lt;br/gt;Who forms the Anomalies Committee?lt;br/gt;Forces should never expect a favourable outcome of the issue.lt;br/gt;THE LEGITIMATE ENLEMENT WILL HAVE TO BE SNATCHED BY THE FORCES.lt;br/gt;FOR THIS , THREE SERVICE CHIEFS WILL HAVE TO SHOW THEIR GRIT.lt;br/gt;DO NOT IMPLEMENT 7 CPC ILLEGITIMATE AWARD TILL ALL CLEARLY VISIBLE ANOMALIES ARE REMOVED.

                                In my opinion Disability Pension was settled issue by the 6th CPC. Converting from percentage base to slab base itself is an anomaly. I think it was done intentionally as other central govt employees were not converted from percentage base to slab base. This shows step motherly treatment by the 7th CPC members. Moreover this happened because representative from armed forces was not part of 7th CPC. There were learned members in 7th CPC but non of them justified this issue and blindly recommended from percentage base to slab base. I really wonder on thinking of these learned members.

                                  Modi Government has two agendas regarding the military. The apparent one is to use them for all kind of jobs, make song and dance about their sacrifices to paint a pro-military picture. But sinister hidden agenda is to destroy the military as a self-confident body and turn it into an organisation subservient to bureaucracy and politician. So that just like other government departments the military can also be used for partisan ends. Otherwise why would any government first create an obvious anomaly and then instead of immediately rectifying it, send it to a Committee headed by bureaucrats who is any case hold deep seated bias against military.
