GOOD NEWS FOR HON. NB. SUBEDARS.
The govt has finally notified an extremely well deserved relief to Havildars granted the Honorary rank of Naib Subedar.
Till date, Hony Naib Subedars were granted a pension of Havildar with Rs 100 as an additional benefit for the Honorary rank as per Regulation 137 of the Pension Regulations for the Army – 1961 (as amended in 1991). A mere pittance it was !!!
Accepting the recommendations of the 6th CPC in this regard, the govt has notified that Havildars granted the Hony rank of Naib Subedar shall now be paid a pension of a regularly promoted Naib Subedar. The said benefit would however only be extended to pension and not for encashment of leave etc.
In actual terms, what does it translate into ?
This for pre-06 pensioners :
Theoretically, for full pensionable service, the minimum guaranteed pension for Hony Naib Subedars till date was :
50% of 5200 (Minimum of Pay in Pay Band-1) + 2800 (Grade Pay) + 2000 (MSP) = Rs 5000
After the new orders, the minimum guaranteed pension shall be :
50 % of 9300 (Minimum of Pay in Pay Band-2) + 4200 (Grade Pay) + 2000 (MSP) = Rs 7750
A good leap.
