Since I have raised this question of a few of you earlier in the day, I have, since then been able to since locate the authority for the "Weightage" years permissible for each rank for calculation of qualifying service for pension.

The file is attached for your ready reference.

Warm Regards!

  1. In the light of reproduction of Govt Of INDIA sanctions by Col K JASPAL in preceeding publication (IESM dt 8.6 09),these weighatage tables (issued by subordinate depts of G O I )are redundent and stand superseeded .
    ESM only have to derive their RIGHT of full pension for 20 yrs without the clause of max 33 yrs; by enforcing the rule of LAW as given by the COUNTRY/NATION/G O I .
    Therefore AWAKE,LOOK and be assertive.Dont produce these clerical tables of anciant times.Dont misleed innocent esm.
    As a matter of LOGIC and LAW the variable weightages ranging from 13 yrs to 3 yrs for same Military service is mockery of justice .
    Therefore dump those tables reproduced by you and dont publicise any more.
