Army Personnel Not Entitled to Disability Pension If Injury Is Not Attributable to Military Service: Supreme Court

[19 July 2022] The Supreme Court observed that military personnel are not eligible for disability pension if there is not even a causal connection between the Military service and injuries.

Unless the disability is attributable to or aggravated by military service and is more than 20%, the entitlement to disability pension does not arise, the bench of Justices Abhay S Oka and MM Sundresh observed.
