Subject: PENSION OF PRE 2006 MAJORS AND EQUIVALENTS - EMAIL 822/2009 - 12 DEC 09 (A to G)

Dear Sir,
It is indeed very kind of you for giving thought to the pension of a Major.
As per the new Army Instruction of 2004, any offr who completes 13 years of srvice and has passed the part D exam, he is to be promoted to the rank of a Lt Col. Thus promotion to the rank of a Lt Col now is time scale. As a matter of fact, all Major's who have retired and are drawing pension fulfill both the critereas of length of service and having passed the promotion examination. Thus they should be equated with a Lt Col. As per the same Army Instruction, an offr who completes 6 years service is to be promoted to the rank of a Major. It would be seen that the retired Majors holding all the qualifications of a Lt Col and also having more then 20 years of service to their credit are being equated with Majors of 6 years service We are planning to challenge this in the Court of Law. Those willing to join in the band wagon are welcome to contact the under-signed.
With best regards
Major RS Gujral
