Good News for Pre-2006 Pensioners (Veterans): Veteran Prabhjot Singh Chhatwal PLS Retd.
Regards. There is a good news for pre-2006 pensioners (Veterans) ahead.
As per my personal discussion with Sh. Harbans Singh,Director Pension, Department of Ex-Servicemen Welfare, Ministry of Defence, the Committee(constituted on the instructions from Prime Minister),has submitted its report to Ministry of Defence and orders relating to Modified Parity in Pension for Pre-2006 Defence Pensioner are likely to be issued soon. But he was not committed to give any information about the date of issuance of notification.
Pre- 2006 Pensioners are also likely to get disability pension on percentage basis like Post- 2006 Pensioners. Pre-2006 Hony. N/Subs are also going to get pension of regular N/Subs. like Post-2006 Hony.N/Subs. We should be very clear about the fact that no Govt. can afford to grant One Rank One Pension as was demanded in joint Memorandum submitted by a group of organizations on 14th Oct. 2009.
Have a Good day and move forward to a Grand New Year '2010'.
