Petition with Armed Forces Tribunal
Through RMS Blog I wish to state that the petition filed by 139 Officers of the rank of Major/ equi though confined to the particular rank has a major overall implication. As and when the petition is admitted all officers of the rank of Honorary Captain to Brigadier would also be entitled to enhanced pension.
The four clauses of sixth cpc report viz Modified parity, Extant provisions to continue, fitment benefit for serving as well retired officer to be same and pension should not be less than 50% of pay. All officers barring those granted fixed pay scale shall be benefited from the judgement.
All that the veterans have to do is to remember their basic pension of vth cpc multiply it by 1.86 and then add half of Grade pay and MSP. This should be pension payable to them wef 1-1-2006.
