Refusal of Pension benefits to EX-Servicemen
Ex-Servicemen with service less than 15 years are not entitled to pension, as it is a mandatory requirement for a Personnel Below Officer Rank to render 15 years and for Commissioned Officers 20 years qualifying service to earn pension. Minimum qualifying service is an essential criterion for pension in the Government.
The Short Service Commissioned Officers who are not pensioners are eligible for certain schemes of DGR like Training, Security Agencies and other self-employment schemes. Ex Defence personnel with more than 5 years of service are entitled to CSD canteen facilities available in units / establishment apart from being employed as Security Guards. Some grants out of RakshaMantri Discretionary Funds are also provided to non-pensioners upto the rank ofHavaldar.
This information was given by Minister of State for Defence Shri Jitendra Singh in a written reply to DR. Mahendrasinh P. Chauhanin Lok Sabha today.
