ANSWER



MINISTER OF STATE (DR. SUBHASH BHAMRE) IN THE MINISTRY OF DEFENCE

(a) to (e): Disability element of disability pension is payable for disability in other than war or war like situation whereas war injury element is payable for disability in war or war like situation. With effect from 01.01.2006, the disability element is paid based on 30% of last emoluments drawn for 100% disability which is reduced pro-rata for lower percentages of disability.

The war injury element is paid at 60% and 100% of last drawn emoluments for 100% disability for discharged and invalided out pensioners respectively, which is reduced pro-rata for lower percentages of disability. The service element / service pension is paid in addition to Disability / War injury element.

7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) has recommended slab system for disability element for Defence Forces Personnel. However, for civil side, the 6th CPC dispensation of calculation of disability element on percentage basis continues which has resulted in an anomalous situation. The issue has accordingly been referred to the Anomaly Committee.
