Sub Maj/Hony Lt Parthasarathy C says
General terminology of Personnel Below Officer Ranks in the Armed Forces is JCOs/OR and equivalents. Are the terms and conditions of JCOs/OR and the so called equivalents of other services i.e., Navy and Air Force same ?. Is Rank wise age and service limit applicable to Personnel Below Officer Rank of Navy and Air Force like Army Personnel ?. Is the four years service restriction applicable to MWO of Air Force and MCPO I/II of Indian Navy like Sub Maj in Indian Army ?. In Indian Army, compulsory Departmental Promotion Committee is conducted at 25th year of service, hence is any Subedar Major of Indian Army can avail the two years extension of service granted to all (ALL) central Government Employees during the Honorable Prime Minsiter Shri Atal Behari Vajpayee regime ?. In case, Subedar Major is considered a command appointment, any allowance given to those rank or any other facility given apart from MWO/MCPO.

I retired from Indian Air Force On 31 Mar 2000 after a service of 20 years .What would be my Basic pension ,How much would I get.
AVTAR PHULL (Retd Sub) UK says
It seems, as per the Govt order that OROP will be re-fixed on the basis of retirees of the base year 2013, OROP will not be affect on JCOs rank. For example JCOs retired pre 2006 or post 2006 are already getting the same pension. However if the Govt re-modified the Basic pension/table then may get something, It could be worked out as under for a Subedar:
Basic pension in 2013 : Rs 11970 plus
DA @ 80% (01.01.2013) Rs 9576 plus
Total Basic pension Rs 21546 plus
Remaining DA 39% Rs 8403
Total pension Rs 29949 a Sub of Gp Y will get.
As per projected Table Rs 14575 plus
DA @ 119% Rs 17344
Total Pension Rs 31919 a Sub of Gp Y will get.
And if there will be 10% increase in the total it will be
Rs 28836 for a Sub of Gp Y.
All figures are approximate. Good luck see what happen.
I shall clarifiy on receipt of the Govt Table.
