Implementation of the Govt. decision on the recommendations of Committee on the issue related to Defence Service personnel and Ex-Servicemen -For pre-2006 commissioned Officers

OFFICE OF THE PR. CONTROLLER OF DEFENCE ACCOUNTS (PENSION)
DRAUPADI GHAT, ALLAHABAD- 211014
Circular No. 520
Dated: 24.12.2013

Subject: Implementation of the Govt. decision on the recommendations of Committee on the issue related to Defence Service personnel and Ex-Servicemen -For pre-2006 commissioned Officers.

Reference:-This office circular No. 500 dated 17th January 2013, Circular No. 503 dated 17th January 2013 and Circular No. 508 dated 19th February 2013.

PDAs are aware that as per this office circulars cited under reference, Family pension in respect of Commissioned Officers will be revised by PDAs as per tables attached with above cited circulars. It has been observed that various PDAs feel difficulties while revising pension w.e.f. 24.09.2012.

Clarifications on some of major problems are given as under-

1. As per Govt. Orders issued in implementation of CSC-2012 the revised rate of various type of family pension have been linked with qualifying service in case of JCO and ORs. No such linkage of family pension with qualifying service has been provided in cases of Commissioned Officers. As such revised rates of ordinary family pension as provided in Circular No. 500 and revised rates of other family pension viz. Special Family Pension/Dependent Pension/ Liberalised Family Pension and Liberalised Dependent Family Pension provided for AMC/ADC/RVC officers as well as officers other than these categories under this office Circulars No. 503 dated 17.01.2013 as further amended vide circulars No. 508 dated 19.02.2013 may please be paid forthwith.

However, these rates have not been provided for TA officers, EC/SSC officers etc. It is hereby clarified that family pension of these category of officers may be revised as under—

(i) TA Officers: – The Next of Kin of TA officers are entitled to Special Family Pension/ Dependent Pension/Liberalised Family Pension and Liberalised Dependent Family Pension as per rates provided for officers other than AMC/ADC/RVC categories. The reason for providing separate table for retiring pension for TA officers is that TA officers are not entitled to rank weightage in qualifying service as provided to other officers retired prior to 1.1.2006. Since Special Family Pension/Dependent Pension/ Liberalised Family Pension and Liberalised Dependent Pension does not depend upon qualifying service, therefore there will be no effect on these pension.

(ii) EC/SSC officers are at par with regular commissioned officers in the matter of grant of Special Family Pension/ Dependent Pension /Liberalised Family Pension and Liberalised Dependent Pension. As such the table applicable to regular commissioned officers would also be applicable to EC/SSC officers.

(iii) The officers who served in the Indian Air Force and Indian Navy as medical officers and were in receipt of NPA would also be entitled to pension as per rates as provided for AMC/ADC/RVC officers.

2. Further, The minimum service pension/family pension for pre-2006 retired commissioned officers have been provided in Annexure A to G attached with this office circular No. 500 dated 17th Jan 2013. Few PDAs are feeling difficulties while revising pension according to Corps. The corps of the officers in case of Army officers may be identified from corps mentioned in original PPO. Further the officer’s category may also be identified from prefix attached to their personnel No. The prefix and corresponding category of officers is mentioned here under-

MR – Officers of Army Medical Corps.
DR – Officers of Army Dental Corps
V – Officers of Remount veterinary Corps.
TA – Officers of Territorial Army.
NT R- NON TECH. Officers of Army Medical Corps.
EC – Emergency Service Commissioned Officers.
SS – Short Service Commissioned Officers.
IC, SL, SC, RC- General Category of officers.

NOTE: – The non technical officers of Army Medical Corps are entitled to pension/Family pension as officers other than AMC/ADC/RVC categories.

However, in doubtful cases of Army Officers, matter may be referred to the G-1/Military section of this office for clarification on category of officer and his entitlement of pension. However, in case of Air Force and Navy Officers, respective pension sanctioning authority may be contacted for identification of category of pensioners.

3. It is also intimated that rate of LFP for children in cases where the Armed Forces Personnel is not survived by widow but is survived by child /children only , is not provided in circular No. 503 dated 17/01/2013. It is hereby clarified that the rate of LFP in such cases will be revised at the rate equal to 60% of rate of LFP which is authorized to widow in terms of circular No. 503 dated 17/01/2013.

4. It is also reiterated that the pension may be revised as per existing provisions of this office circular No. 500 & 508 in the light of clarification as prescribed above.

Please acknowledge receipt.
