In some good news for defence pensioners, disbursing agencies have started releasing the Seventh Pay Commission arrears due to them. The information was shared by Union Minister of State for Defence Subhash Bhamre in a written reply to AIADMK MP M Vasanthi in Lok Sabha recently.


The amount released and the number of pensioners to be benefitted from this are still being calculated. 

According to a state-wise tabulation of the number of defence pensioners as on April 1, 2016, Punjab and Haryana lead the pack with 2,77,985 and 2,71,034 pensioners respectively.

Defence pensioners from Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra too form a sizeable number with both states together accounting for 4,21,530 retired personnel.
