Subject: [IESM_GovBody] Erroneous Instruction for Family Pension of Lt Cols Amended
Affected families can now breathe easy!
Wg Cdr CK Sharma (Retd)Treasurer, IESM--------------Incorrect pension to families of Lt Cols: Clarification issued
As discussed earlier, the Ministry of Defence, in its letter dated 15-11-2010, had incorrectly mentioned the ordinary family pension in respect of Lt Cols as Rs 8760/- per month whereas it should have actually been Rs 15420/- per month.
The PCDA(P) had also floated a circular to all Pension Disbursing Agencies (PDAs) with the same incorrect amount.
However now, the PCDA(P) vide a circular issued on 22-02-2011, has clarified the following to all PDAs :
“There shall be no change in the entitlement of the rates of minimum guaranteed family pension for the rank of Lt Col (TS) / Lt Col (S) which had already been notified as 15420/- pm under VI CPC vide MOD letter dated 21.05.2009 and circulated vide this office circular No. 412 dated 26.05.2009”
