Armed Forces – Special Pension for 10 years service – Supreme Court Judgment dated 27.10.2016
IN THE SUPREME COURT OF INDIA
CIVIL APPELLATE JURISDICTION CIVIL
APPEAL NO.2147 of 2011
T.S. Das and Ors. ….Appellants .
Union of India and Anr……………………………….Respondent
Civil Appeal No.8566 of 2014
These appeals emanate from the divergent relief claimed by the original applicants before the Armed Forces Tribunal (Appellants in Civil Appeal No. 2147 of 2011 and Respondents in Civil Appeal No. 8566 of 2014), which, however, involve overlapping points for consideration. Hence, we deem it apposite to dispose of both these appeals analogously, by this common judgment.
2. Civil Appeal No. 2147 of 2011 arises from an order passed by the Armed Forces Tribunal, Principal Bench, New Delhi, in Original Application No. 182 of 2009 dated 4th February, 2010. The Tribunal has rejected the claim of the applicants therein for grant of a “Special Pension”. In Civil Appeal No. 8566 of 2014 the decision of the Armed Forces Tribunal, Regional Bench, Chennai, in O.A. No.83 of 2013 dated 22nd April, 2013, is challenged by the Union of India. In that case, the Tribunal acceded to the claim of the applicants therein for grant of a “Reservist Pension”.
