ILL FATE OF A PRE-1973 DISABLED VETERAN.
We had posted an Article on
November 26th of 2014 regarding
restoration of Service Element to Pre-1973 retirees as per CDA cir 527.
The first and the only one
veteran Sepoy PRIS Jeyaharan came to our Trust for a help in this regard.
RANK: SEPOY Regt.No: 6647011
RECORD OFFICE: ASC(S)
We extended all the helps in
preparing the required documents and
guided him to forward it to his RO –ASC.
Record Office raised so many
queries and we replied and after about 2 yrs of correspondences ,
the veteran is sanctioned with SERVICE ELEMENT
of minimum pension with effect
from 30-4-1983 vide PPO: D/Corr/0819/2016
The PPO was sent to
Treasury Office, they in turn forwarded
to his PDA, State Bank of India
. The branch transmitted
the same to their CPPC at Chennai for further action.
Likewise this THAMASA went of
for more than 6 months. No action taken so far.
ALAS: NOW THE
INNOCENT VETERAN DIED LAST MONTH- (MAY 2017 )
without receiving his pension and arrears..
When we calculated the
arrears from May 1983 till now , it works out to be about 10Lacs plus.
WHAT A PITIABLE SITUATION.
The poor veteran died with out receiving his
sanctioned pension and he could not enjoy the fruit of a Huge amount of Arrears
in his life time.
The main reason for such a
delay is –the policy making, decision making and implementation. It has taken
33yrs for the Government to decide for restoration of Service Element to
such disabled soldiers.( Cir 527).
ANOTHER PATHETIC POINT TO NOTE
There is no Joint
notification in favour of his wife.
Now the arrears to be claimed by NOK / Legal heirs and his
wife has to ESTABLISH the genuineness of her WIDOWHOOD.
The process to claim / sanction family pension may take
another a year.
THIS IS THE FATE OF OUR VETERANS AFFAIRS.
Dear veteran brothers,
Please study this case and
try to help your fellow veterans and families in your areas in what ever way
you can and it will be of a great
service and blessings.

FIRST CASE OF PRE-1973 DISABILITY VETERAN
We had displayed a Notice board at our CSD canteen and ECHS regarding the Benefit for the Pre-1973 disability pensioners as per CDA cir 527.
Those who were Invalided out with less than 10 yrs of service with 20%
Disability element and later on due the Disability Element fell below 20% the disability was stopped and as the qualifying service was less than 10 yrs, the service Element also stopped.
For such people, the Government has now considered to sanction Service element as per CDA cir 527. For that they have to apply to their Record office.
One affected veteran called on us and we guided him. He has now received a set of Forms from Record office. Again we assisted him in filling up the forms giving various particulars and guided him to forward it through Sainik Board to his Record Office.
Name: PR Immanuel S.Jayaharan Rank: Sepoy (6647011) RO: ASC –South
PPO: D/ RA/ 6171/71 PDA: Sub-Treasury Tenkasi, Tirunelveli-Dist. Tamil Nadu.
The veteran was very happy with our service and thanked us for such a help and guidance.

FITMENT OF PENSION ON MAX. SCALE - CIR 568
The fitments of pension at different periods;
Example for a Rank of SGT. Group- X QS: 15 yrs.
Scale of pay: 4670-85-5945.
1 As per consolidated method= cir 397 Annexure-III is 4277 w.e.f 1-1-2006. Then as per CDA cir 547, the Minimum of 50% on the Min pay +GP + MSP+ X gp pay.
4670X 1.86 = 8690+2800+2000+1400= 1489 Full pension: i.e 50% …. 14890/2=7445.
For 15 yrs + weight age 6 yrs…..7445 x 21/33= 4738 But as per Cir 547, for the Rank of CPL is 4883, hence for Sgt , it is stepped up to 4883 w.e.f 1-1-2006
3 Now, the fitment is done on Maximum scale as per CIR 430;
05945 x 1.86=11060+2800+200+1400=17260Full pension- 50%..............................=17260/2\ 8630For 15 + 6 yrs…………………….= 8630x21/33=5492,,,w.e.f 1-7-2009.
Here also, for the Rank of CPL it is 5519, hence for Sgt it is stepped up to 5519 w,e,f 1-7-2009 CDA cir 482.
Again, the Scale of Pay is revised as 5000-100-6500 w.e.f 10-10-1997.
Also the weight age is increased by 2 yrs. Now the fitment- Max scale- 6500x 1.86= 12090+2800+2000+1400=18290Full pension…………….= 18290/2=9145 w.e.f 24-9-2012.
For 15 + 8 yrs………….\ 9145x23/33= 6374 CDA cir 501.
Then OROP Cir 555…..=8585 w.e.f 1-7-2014
As per 7th CPC Cir 570..= 8585x 2.57= 22064 w.e.f 1-1-2016.
Here, please find that the fitment for pension was calculated at Maximum of scale from 1-7-2009 ,
Though the Cir 397 says that the Minimum pension shall not be less than 50% of Minimum fitment, the calculation was carried our at Maximum fitment of scale from 1-7-2009.
Hence it is felt that the arrears for CDA cir 568 shall be calculated at the Maximum scale i.e pension at 9145 instead of 7445 – the minimum fitment.
If this is – maximum scale- a Sgt of Gp- X QS 15 yrs will get an Extra arrears of Rs…………………
This calculation is applicable for all Ranks of Commissioned Officers and JCOs and Ors.
If it is considered, a Sgt. Of Gp- I , QS 15 yrs will get one more arrears ie. 9145 – 7445 from 1-1-2006 to 1-7-2014 and 9145-8585
from 1-7-2014 to 31-12-2015 and 9145x2.257 from 1-1-2016.
We feel, all the ESM associations may represent the issue to concerned authorities. .

FILING OF 10E FOR OFFICERS
All prematurely retired officers (Those who have retired before completing 28 years) were paid Delinking arrears as per CDA Cir.568.
The tax deducted on these arrears is increased proportional to the amount of arrears paid. Since the arrears were accrued from 2006 and paid now, there is good scope of claiming tax relief u/s 89 by filing 10E before filing tax return. A Lt. Col with 22 years service getting 6.5 lac delinking arrears will get around 1.25 lac tax relief u/s 89. The following information is required to file 10E.
1. Financial year wise pension income from 2005 to 2017.
2. Year wise breakup of delinking arrears received.
The above information can be obtained from bank. An officer who has paid tax regularly from 2005 can make use of his Tax return copy for recording the pension income from 2005.
An officer, who has not filed tax so far can also file 10E and claim relief. All pensioners must insist the bank to issue pension statement from 2005. Also they have to obtain delinking arrears working sheet from bank to prepare break up from 2005. This is the situation regarding income tax for officers this year.
Those who want any help may contact Exwel Trust. Phone:0462-2575380. Or send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org . Also please visit our website www.exweltrust.in. Some useful guidelines are given in Signals parivar website also. click here for signals parivar
Financial year wise pension income from 2005 to 2017 and year wise breakup of the DL 33 arrears are a must for claiming relief u/s 89. Try to get and claim relief. If there is a will, there is a way. Nothing is impossible.
