Armed Forces Pension: What Ministry Said
Armed Forces Pension: Who gets Invalid Pension
Armed Forces Pension: Who Is Eligible
Armed Forces Pension: Qualifying service - Then
Armed Forces Pension: Qualifying service - Now
The latest approval extends the benefit to several armed personnel whose service is less than ten years and became/become invalided out of service on account of any bodily or mental infirmity which is Neither Attributable to Nor Aggravated (NANA) by Military Service and which permanently incapacitated/incapacitates them from military service as well as civil re-employment.
The move will help make such personnel economically sound.
