Sir,

Sub: Discrepancy in DESW letter No 1(2)/2016-D(Pen/Pol) Dated 30.09.2016

The distinction of Sgts (Diploma) and (non-diploma)  in the Air Force table appended to the above cited letter defies all logic.

It may be recalled that the pension of non diploma Sgts was enhanced to that of Diploma Holders on the basis of the recommendations of the Cabinet Secretary Committee effective from 24.09.2012.

In IAF, the diploma holders are appointed as Group X, LACs and  they discharge the same duties and functions of the non diploma category personnel .

"Equal pay for equal work" is a valid legal position and therefore all Sgts who perform the same duties are to be paid same pay/pension, lest it would be violative Art 14 &16 of the Indian Constitution.

Another interesting aspect is such distinction as Diploma or non diploma is not made in any other ranks of IAF except Sgts.

How can a Diploma holder joined as LAC, is not treated differently in the rank of CPL, JWO, WO & MWO, but only in the rank of SGT selectively. This is a mystery.

Further, this letter itself has set a precedence by granting the MGP which is higher than 50% of the fitment table to  Commissioned Officers in the rank of Lts and Captains, retrospectively from 01.01.2006 based on the notification issued on 07.01.2013.

On the basis of the above precedence, we request you to kindly examine the above lacuna and rectify the same by granting the service pension of 7750/- to all group X Sgts with effect from 01.01.2006.

Thanking you

Yours faithfully
