GOOD NEWS FOR VETERANS DRAWING ADDITIONAL PENSION
(Veterans aged 80 years and above.)
As per CDA circular No.397 MOD letter dated.11.11.2008, veterans above 80 years are eligible for Additional pension according to their age.
Now CDAP Allahabad had clarified that the Disability pension can be added with the basic pension
For arriving at the amount of additional pension to be paid to aged veterans who are above 80 years.
For Example a Basic pension is : Rs.3500
20% Disability Pension : Rs. 702
Now Additional Pension
@ 20% (80 to 85 years) :Rs. 841
Total Basic Pension :Rs.5043
Plus DA for Rs.5043 @27% :Rs.1161
Total Pension :Rs.6204
THIS RS.6204 APPEARS TO BE A REASONABLE AMOUNT FOR AN AGED
I REQUEST ALL YOUNGER VETERANS TO HELP THE AGED TO
GET THIS BENEFIT.
