Armed Forces personnel who are retained in service despite the disability held attributable to or aggravated by military service are entitled to lumpsum compensation of disability / war injury element at the time of disability. Those who do not opt for the retention are entitled to disability pension / war injury pension on retirement / discharge. No disability pension / war injury pension is admissible on retirement / discharge once the lumpsum compensation has been obtained by the personnel. The primary factor for awarding disability benefit to disabled personnel is the establishment of a causal connection between disablement and military service by the Competent Authority. Accidents during the journey from duty station to leave station and vice-versa are also generally considered attributable to military service.

This information was given by Defence Minister Shri AK Antony in a written reply to Shri PC Gaddigoudarin Lok Sabha today.
