WHITE PAPER ON THE RANK PAY ISSUE at

Chandigarh, January 6
Even as the manner in which the Ministry of Defence has gone about in implementing the Supreme Court order on anomalies pertaining to rank pay consequent to the Fourth Pay Commission has kicked up a fresh controversy, the government will start paying arrears for the same from this month.

A communiqué issued by the Principal Controller of Defence Accounts, Pune, states that payment of arrears to serving Army officers affected by the aforementioned judgement would be made along with the salary for January 2013. Where affected officers have retired from service, the payment of arrears will be made from first week of February 2013 onwards, after due verification of requisite details of residential address, bankers, PAN and pension payment orders.

The orders affect officers holding the ranks of captain to brigadier as on January 1, 1986. Sources in the defence accounts department said the determination of arrears is a “complex exercise” and the arrears for each individual would be different depending upon the dates of promotions and period of service. There is no common formula that could be applied across the board.

The instructions to implement the Supreme Court judgement were issued by the MoD last month, following which veterans pointed out a twist in the instructions that makes the apex court’s orders largely redundant.

The Supreme Court had in 2010 ruled that rank pay, first introduced by the Fourth Pay Commission, is to be included as part of basic pay for the purpose of calculating emoluments, allowances and benefits. Contrary to the recommendations, the orders issued for implementation of the Fourth Pay Commission had deducted rank pay from basic pay, causing financial loss to officers.

Long wait ends

  • The orders affect officers holding the ranks of captain to brigadier as on January 1, 1986
  • Payment of arrears to serving Army officers affected by the judgement would be made along with the salary for January 2013
  • Where affected officers have retired from service, the payment of arrears will be made from first week of February 2013 onwards
