cases one additional increment in the revised scale for every completed year of
qualifying service rendered after 1/1/86 will be added to the pay fixed as stated
1.8. The date of next increment will be after one year from the year from which
pay is fixed on re-enrolment in DSC. (Auth PAO DSC IO No 3 dt 18/1/89)

Fixation of pay on promotion from a lower rank to a higher rank
When a JCO/ORs is promoted to a higher rank, the PBOR‟s initial pay in
the scale of higher post will be fixed at the stage next above notionally arrived at
by increasing his pay in respect of a lower post by one increment at the stage at
which such pay has accrued E.g. (a) „X‟ Sepoy in group „B was drawing Rs
3380/- on 28/4/97(in time scale of pay of Rs 3050-55-3875. Promoted as Naik
Gp „B‟ wef 1/5/1997 in the Naik group‟B‟ scale of pay of Rs.3250-70-4300)
Pay of X Sepoy will be fixed as under
Promotion date of Naik Gp „B‟ 1-5-97
„X‟ Sepoys pay as on 1-5-97 – Rs.3380
Add one increment in the lower scale of pay (+) Rs. 55
Notional pay arrived at Rs. 3435
Pay will be fixed in the Naik Gp „B‟ scale of
pay at the stage next above notionally arrived at i.e. Rs. 3460
Date of next increment will be after completion of 12 months from 1.5.97
If the normal date of increment as Sepoy and date of promotion Naik Gp „B‟ falls on the same date i.e. on
1/5/97 The pay in this type of cases will be fixed in the following manner.
Date of service increment due as Sepoy „B‟ - 1-5-97
Date of promotion as Naik Gp „B‟ - 1-5-97
In this case the service increment due as Sepoy with
effect from1-5-97 will be adjusted first „X‟ Sepoy‟s pay as on 1-5-97 - 3380
Add one increment due as Sepoy wef 1-5-97 + 55
Fix the pay on promotion as Naik Gp „B” wef 1-5-97 by invoking the above formula
Pay of „X‟ Sepoy as on 1-5-97 3435
Addl one increment in the lower scale i.e. Sepoy‟s + 55
Notional Pay 3490
As Naik Gp „B‟ the „X‟ Sepoy‟s pay will be fixed on 1-5-97 at Rs 3530. i.e. the stage above the
pay notionally arrived at in the scale of pay of Naik.
Next date of increment will be after completion of 12 months from 1-5-97(Auth Rule 25 (A) (a) of
P & A Regns (ORs).
As per sub para under Rule25 (A) (a) of P & A Regns. (ORs) the benefit of next increment granted
from the 1st of the month can be taken into account for fixation of pay in cases where promotion to the
higher rank takes effect from the same date i.e. from the first the month.
(Auth Sub Para under 25 (A) (a) P & A Regns. (ORs).
The undersigned is directed to state that references have been received
from various Ministries/Departments seeking clarification as to how to fix the pay
under CCS (RP) Rules 1986 in cases of Govt servant appointed/promoted to
another post including appointment in Selection grade exactly on 1-1-86. It is
clarified that pay in such cases should first be fixed in the revised scale of pay of
the post held on 1-1-86 with reference to pay in the pre-revised scale of that post
and then be fixed in the promoted post under FR 22 (e) wef 1-1-86 or FR 22 (a)
(ii) as the case may be. The same procedure should be followed in cases where
a Govt servant opts for revised scale of pay from the date of next or subsequent
increment and appointment to another post also happens to be on the same

Increments becoming due after 1-11-1973 will be allowed from the first of the month (Auth Rule
7 of P & A Regns (ORs)
The following Periods are not taken into account for reckoning qualifying service for increment.
(a) Periods for which pay & Allces have been forfeited as stipulated in Rule 51 P & Allce
(b) Periods for which P & Allces have been withheld pending regularisation.
(c) Periods of leave without Pay & Allces.
(d) Service rendered prior to desertion which is forfeited in consequent of a sentence of court
martial for an offence punishable under section 38 of Army Act 1950 unless the same is restored
on completion of 3 years further service with exemplary conduct.
If an increment is withheld for a specific period by the competent authority the increment
has to be allowed only after the expiry of that period. Where the withholding of an increment has
the effect of postponing future increment subsequent increment will be regulated accordingly.
Effect of non-qualifying service on postponement of increment allowed from the
first of the month.
The date of increment will always be 1st of the month in which it is normally due and any non
qualifying service occurring during the incremental period should be counted from the 1 st of the month and
not from the actual date of increment. To illustrate in the case of an Auditor appointed on 17/7/80 the first
increment would be granted from 1-7-81 and first of July would there after be his normal date of
increment. It is with reference to that date the date of increment will be calculated, if subsequently there is
any non qualifying service and the increment again recalculated in accordance with OM dt 7-1-74
reproduced in MO Part I 00 290/74.
The above clarification is also applicable to service personnel.

SERVICE/DEATH CUM RETIREMENT GRATUITY
1 Personnel discharged with minimum 5 yrs service but less than 15 yrs service are eligible for
service gratuity. Service gratuity shall be admissible at a uniform rate of half a month‟s reckonable
emoluments last drawn by the individual for each completed six monthly period of qualifying service.
There shall be no deduction in the quantum of service gratuity so arrived at in respect of personnel who are
permitted to retire or are discharged prematurely on compassionate grounds/personal reasons.
(Regn 140 Revise in Regn Part I 1961).
2. In the case of personnel discharged as service no longer required or for any other administrative
reasons under Army Rule 13 (3) item III (v) a certificate to the effect that the PBOR is not discharged due
to misconduct, lack of integrity, moral turpitude and corruption issued by discharged sanctioning authority
will be looked into audit before admitting service DCR gratuity claim. (CDA Chennai No
A1P1/4003/Gen/Vol IV dt 04-04-2000).
DEATH CUM RETIREMENT GRATUITY
3.1 An individual who has completed 5 yrs qualifying gratuity service and is eligible for service/
invalid gratuity or pension of any type shall be granted on the termination of his service a retirement
gratuity (DCR gratuity) equal to one fourth of reckonable emoluments for each completed six monthly
period of qualifying service plus weightage of 5 yrs subject to a maximum of 16 ½ times of reckonable
emoluments provided that the amount of retirement gratuity payable shall in, no cases, exceed Rs.one lakh.
There will be no ceiling on reckonable emoluments for calculating the gratuity (Authority GOI MOD No
1(5)/87/D/Pension service dt 30-10-87.
3.2 Ceiling of the maximum amount of Retirement/Death cum Retirement gratuity has been raised
from Rs 1.00 lack to 2.50 lack. This has effect from 01-04-95 (GOI MOD No 5 (i) 95/D(Pay/Service) dt
3.3 Reckonable emoluments for all type of gratuity wef 01/01/96 are:-
Pay including classification pay plus stagnation increment, if any, plus Dearness Allowance
admissible on the date of retirement. (GOI MOD No 1(6)/98/D(Pension /Service) dt 03-02-98)
4.1 A fraction of a year equal to three months and above shall be treated as completed one half year
and reckoned as qualifying service for determining the amount for passing service/DCR gratuity. (IO 6/85)
4.2 The fraction of a year representing 9 months (270 days) and above will be rounded off as two
completed six monthly period. (CDA (ORs) Southern Madras No AT/V/0306 dt 17-04-85).
5.1 As per para 526 (ii) OM X Part II the payment of DCR gratuity is not to be authorised before the
actual date of discharge of the individual. This creates delay for payment of DCR gratuity to the PBOR on
one hand and extra expenditure to the state on account of money order commission on the other. To tide
over the situation the following decision has been taken by the O/O CDA Chennai.
The Record office DSC will forward DCR gratuity claim along with service gratuity claim in
eligible cases while sending the service documents for final settlement of account. PAO will audit and pass
DCR gratuity claim. After passing DCR gratuity claim the amount will be credited along with pay and
allowances in the IRLA but will be credited separately as an independent item in the accounting cage of
IRLA. A separate payment authority for DCR gratuity super scribing on top of payment authority “ Not
payable till first of the month following the date of discharge” will be issued. In case the PBOR is availing
leave after reporting at Depot Bn in connection with discharge such claim will be admitted in audit only on
expiry of leave. (CDA Chennai No ATP I/4003/Gen/Vol IV dt 04-04-2000).
Counting of former service for pension/ gratuity
An individual who has rendered previous service in the Indian Army/Navy/Air Force or Defence
Security Corps will be eligible to count that service for pension / gratuity admissible on release from the
Corps to the extent and subject to the same conditions, as are applicable to personnel of Regular Army vide
Regn 126 Pension Regulation Part I 1961. Previous service rendered in the Indian state forces and irregular
corps which had already been allowed to count towards an Indian Army Pension on re-enrolment in the
Indian Army will also count subject to the same conditions. Previous gratuity refunded under this rule will
not be paid back under any circumstances. (Authy : Chapter IV PR Part I and para 3 (e) of AI 3/5/56 as
reconstructed vide corn No 63/62 (AI 123/62)
The term “ Irregular Corps” referred to above must normally be understood as used in the
Regulation and connected orders in contradistinction to Regular Army. For instance in Eastern Frontier
Rifles, Bangal Bn. has been held as covered by the above terms (JCDA (ORs) North Meerut No ATP67 dt
17-12-63 addressed to this PAO)
Note Claims for counting former service in the Navy/Air Force are subject to
preliminary scrutiny by respective controllers of Defence accounts.
(Note below para 288 OM Part X Vol - I)
Procedure for submission of former service claims
1. Claims for counting former service towards pension/gratuity will be submitted by the officer-in-
charge Records on IAFA 365 duly supported by sheet rolls (including enrolment forms) in respect of
present and previous service and IAFY 1935 in the case of ex-servicemen commissioned direct as
JCOs/(para 288 OM Part X and Regulation 20 read with item 1 of Table IV of PR Part II 1961)
Note Where service documents in respect of former service are not forth
coming the power to waive. The production are exercised by the CDA (ORs) vide
remarks under col. 5 against item 1 of Table IV referred to in Regn 20 of PR Part
II 1961. Such claim will be forwarded to the main office with a detailed audit
In case where the circumstances of discharge from former service were such as to entitle the
person concerned to gratuity in respect of the service and there is no documentary evidence to prove that
gratuity was paid to him a certificate regarding non payment of gratuity will be obtained from former PAO
through Record Office DSC
(S/084-VI dt 25/02/93 IO 12/93)
2. There is no time bar for former service claims. The review of former service already claimed /
admitted in advertantly should ordinarily be effected while the individual is still in service (CDA (ORs) No
AT/185 dt 24-12-66.)
1.(a) At the time of reemployment /re-enrolement, the individual shall have
declared his former service and cause of discharge there from and elected to count
that service towards pension/gratuity by suitably answering question No 9 and 11
(10 and 12 in the revised form) of the enrolement form (Regn 126 (b) Part I 1961
With the issue of GOI MOD letter No PC III to MF No A0052/DSC-2/54-
C/D(GC IV dt 3/3/83 ex service personnel re-enrolled in DSC have to exercise an
option whether not to count former service and continue to draw pension or to
cease pension and count FS for pension gratuity. Even though answer to Q No 11
of the enrolment form (12 in the revised form) is shown as „No‟ at the time of
enrolement and the PBOR exercises the option to count former service in terms of
Govt letter dt 3/3/83 the answer shown against No 11 (12) of the enrolement from
gets nullified (CDA (ORs) South Madras No AT/V/0185 dt 09/10/1983)
(b) The option in terms of Govt. letter dt 3/3/83 has to be exercised within 6
months from the date of enrolment in DSC (CDA (ORs) South letter No
AT/II/0958/XII dt 12/06/87).
1. The partial omission in furnishing the cause of discharge against Q No 9 (10) of the enrolment
form may be rectified by the Administrative Authorities with the consent of the individuals concerned and
does not warrant regularisation under Government Orders. (AHQ letter No 89633/AG/PS 4 (a) dt 6/11-12-
58 reproduced in MOI No AT/992 dt 19/02/59).
2. Where the discrepancy in the enrolment form is a minor one (e.g. former corps is shown but cause
of discharge is not shown against Q No 9 (10) it can be rectified by the officer I/C Records with the consent
of the individual.
All such cases will first be submitted to the PAO by the Record office for concurrence before
rectification of the entry in the enrolment form.
3. In cases where an individual had rendered more than one spell of service
before re-enrolment in the DSC, but only one of the former spells has been
recorded against Q No 9(10) of his enrolment form, the non declaring of the
remaining spells in the chain will be treated as a case of minor omission and may
be dealt with under AHQ letter dt 6/11-12-58 quoted above, subject to the
condition that the first spell of service had already been allowed to count for
pension/gratuity during the second spell of service and so on and thus all
previous spells preceding re-enrolment in DSC had been combinedly treated as
qualifying for pension/ gratuity. (AHQ letter No 89633/AG/PS -4 (a) dt 21-07-62
as amended by AHQ No 89633/AG/PS - 4 (a) dt 31-05-67.
(a) After re-employment / re-enrolment the individual shall have completed any consecutive period of
three years without two red ink entries or a court martial conviction.
(Regn 126(b) PR part I 1961)
(b) The fulfillment of this condition is not necessary in the case of individuals discharged from former
service on public grounds such as re-organisation or reduction in establishment (Item (b) col 5 against sl No
1 of the table referred to in 126 PR part I 1961).
The individual shall have refunded any gratuity other than war gratuity received in his former
service within a period of three years from the date of his re-employment/re-enrolment in not more 36
monthly instalments from his pay. The first instalment shall be payable within three months from the date
(Regn 126 (b) PR part I 1961).
Unless former service documents are received by Records DSC, Officer I/C DSC Records may not
be able to intimate the amount of gratuity received by the PBOR in former service. In many cases delay of
6 to 12 months is expected to receive the former service document by DSC Records. Hence RO DSC may
not be able to intimate the recovery of gratuity within 3 months from the date of enrolment. To tide over
this situation the RO DSC will intimate provisional recovery of gratuity immediately on re-enrolment in
DSC. In the computerised system of accounting provisional recovery of gratuity is to be intimated by RO
DSC indicating the year i.e. one year or two years, total amount of provisional recovery of gratuity and the
rate of provisional recovery of gratuity so as to prepare loan modules by PAO
(CGDA No MECH/EDP/429 dt 23/3/96).
Competent authorities for relaxing the above conditions
In individual cases, a competent authority mentioned below may relax at its discretion conditions
2 and 3. (Regn 126 (c) PR part I 1961)
(a) Condition 2 of Regulation Area or Independent Sub Area Commander

(i) Desertion vide section 38 of the Army Act and
(ii) Fraudulent enrolment vide section 43 (a) of the Army Act shall forfeit the
whole of his former service towards pension or gratuity upon being
convicted by court martial of the offence
(Regn 123 (a) PR Part I 1961).
1. (a) The offence of desertion should invariably be tried by a Court Martial
(b) The provisions of Regn 123(a) PR Part I 1961 are not attracted in a case
in which an individual is convicted by a CO or other competent authority under section 80 of
(Army HQ letter No 42231 PSI dt 7/4/60 reproduced in MO circular No AT/1298 dt 27/9/61).
(c) The above provision will not be attracted in a case in which an individual,
even though declared as “Deserter” was not actually charged with desertion.
(MO circular No AT/1451 dt 2/6/63).
2. A person who has forfeited service under the provisions of preceding clause (A) but has not been
dismissed shall on completion of any period of three years further service in the colours and / or service in
the reserve with exemplary conduct and without any red ink entry be eligible to reckon the forfeited service
towards pension / gratuity.
(Regn 123 (b) PR Part 1961)
The restoration of forfeited service contemplated in the above clause (2) will be effected in the
same spell in which desertion took place and not in a subsequent engagement (MO No AT/0185 dt
Belated claims for counting of former service
Claims which have not been prepared in time i.e. within 12 months from the date they fell due
(Now 24 months) will be admitted in audit but a report regarding belated submission of claims should be
made to the next superior administrative authority for such action as it may consider necessary. (Regn 89
PR Part II 1961).
(a) Individuals who were dismissed from their former service will not be
allowed to count that service towards pension / gratuity.
(Regn 126 PR Part I 1961).
(b) On re-enrolment as combatants NCs(E) will be allowed to count half the former
pensionable NCs (E) service towards combatant pension/gratuity provided they have completed
three years service as a combatant subject to the condition laid down in Pension Regulations.
(Column 3 and 5 against ser No 1 (ii) of the Table referred to in Regn 126 PR Part I 1961).
(c) The full rate of pension or gratuity provided for in Pension Regulations shall not be
granted unless the service rendered has been satisfactory. If the service has not been satisfactory
the competent authority may make such deduction in the amount of pension or gratuity as it thinks
(Regn 3 PR Part I 1961)
The competent authority referred to above would be as under
(i) Hony commissioned officer and JCOs - Chief of the Army Staff
(ii) ORs & NCs (E) - OC unit provided he is not below the rank of
Lt Col. In other cases the Sub Area Commander (Area Commander in
cases of units working directly under Area Headquarters) (Item No 1 of

Commanding Officer or any other officer exercising power under section 20 of
the Indian Army Act (Section 80 of the Army Act 1950) will not be excluded for

will be treated as qualifying service for pensionary purposes. (AHQ Cir letter No
76849/1/AG/PS 4 (a) dated 5/7-5-59 (MO Circular No. At/1024 dt 13/08/59).
(ii) The mentioning of the section of the Army Act against the entry made in
the conduct sheet is not necessary, as imprisonment as a summary punishment can
only be awarded under section 80 of the Army Act by a CO and there is no other
section of the Army Act under which an imprisonment can be awarded except by
a Court Martial. An imprisonment awarded by CO without a Court Martial
must, therefore, necessarily be under section 80 ibid/section 20 IAA. (AT circular
No. AT/14 65 dt 01/08/63).
(iii) The period of close arrest preceded by AWOL and followed by
imprisonment awarded by a CO in terms of letter dt 5/7-05-59 referred to against
clause (e) (i) above will reckon for pension / gratuity at par with the period of
