MINIMUM GUARANTEED DISABILITY / WAR INJURY ELEMENT -RECALCULATED.
REVISED CALCULATION OF DISABILITY/ WAR INJURY ELEMENT –MINIMUM GURANTEED RATE
FOR PRE-2006 PENSIONERS ONLY.- CDA CIR- 456 AND 542
The Disability/ war injury element was calculated as per Cir 456 as under:
This was calculated on the Minimum scale of Pay band +Grade pay+ MSP + Xgp.pay. and ,
30% of this total was for 100% Disability.
for a Rank of Sgt. Of Air Force -X Group:
Pay Band: 5200-20200. So the calculation was: 5200+2800+2000+1400=11400.
30% of this total 11400x 30%= 3420/- This is for 100% Disability.
But as per VIth PC, the Minimum Disability for 100% was -3510/- hence the 3510 was continued.
Now as per the latest Cir 542,
the emolument is calculated on the Minimum fitment formula .
The formula is –
The pay scale of V th PC is taken- As per SAFI- 1/S/ 2008 , for the Rank of Sgt: it is 4670-85-5945. The factor 1.86 is taken:
Minimum of the scale 4670 X 1.86= 8686 – rounded to 8690. +2800+200+1400=14890.
Minimum Emolument= 14890 So , 100% Disability is 30% of 14890 =4467.
Previously it was 3510 and now it is 4467, thus a difference of Rs.4467-3510= 957.
Likewise, for each Rank it is to be calculated. For Officers Ref.table No-4
There is no change for the ranks of Sep, NK, and Hav of Y and Z Groups. And Equal ranks in Navy and Air Force.
You can refer the Charts in the Circular 542 dated 27-5-2015
