The Hony.Lts and Capts are considered neither as JCOs Nor Regular officers. They are completely neglected, even though they have served for maximum length of service.
Their pension is not notionally fixed as per JCOs . The pension is fixed in the Pay Band 3 but at the minimum scale of pay, considering their service as ONE year in the Rank which is completely in justice.
Revised Pension in respect of Pre-1-6-1953 Viceroy Commissioned Hony. Lts and Capts are revised as 15465 and 16145 respectively. View the Table 133 of CDA cir 430:
Rank Existing BP Improved Improved Consolidate Pen Revised as per Cir 430
Viceroy 1-1-96 W/O DP With DP as per VI th CPC table 133 w.e.f 1-7-2009
Hony Lt. 4967 5250 7875 13500 15465
Hony.capt. 5116 5425 8138 13850 16145
This same rate of pension is to be applicable for Sub/ Sub.Majs. granted with Hony ranks also.
We are very much in doubt whether any such category of officers are alive on this day. When the pension is revised for non-existing officers as 15465 and 16145, why not the same revision for those Hony.Lts and capts who are alive in their fag end of life. It is a matter for debate.
This discrimination is to be removed . Many affected officers have approached Courts /AFTs and got the judgments in their favour but not executed till date. This is how the Defence veterans are ill treated by MOD/ Govt.
All major ESM associations should fight with all their might to remove the discrimination.
