  1. May I request you to let me know regarding the pension anomaly of the Majors pre 2006. The anomaly has arisen due to revision of rank structure of the defence forces in 2005.

    Major and Lieutenant Colonels were in the same pay scale with a difference of Rank Pay. Majors retired after at least 20 years of reckonable service. Therefore the pension of Major and lieutenant Colonel was almost equal with a difference of Rs 500-1000 ( difference of around 10 %).

    After 2005, the situation has completely changed. One becomes Major after 7 years and Lieutenant colonel after 13 years. No officer with more than 13 years of service will retire as Major. This has removed a disparity with civil services and motivation for youth to join defence services.

    However it has created a situation where an Army officer who retired after more than 20 years of service as Major (pre 2006) is drawing almost half the pension in comparison to the Lieutenant colonel. Lieutenant Colonel/ Colonel (TS) of today perform the same duties as Major Pre 2006.

    There is a huge difference amounting to almost double the pension between Lieutenant Colonel and Major, a Difference of Rs 14,169/- incl DA. Major Pension incl DA Rs 18370/- and Lt Col Pension including DA is Rs 32539/- ,both retired before 2006. The difference before 6th pay commission was just about Rs 1000/- Per Month .After 6th pay commission it is Rs 14,169/- . It may be appropriate to grant rank and pension of Lieutenant Colonel to the veteran Majors pre 2006 to recognize their contribution to defence of this great nation.

    I would like to know the status of this anomaly/disparity between Majors ( Pre 2006) and Lieutenant Colonels.
