7th Pay commission Latest News Today: In a significant development at the center that will help all Border Security Force (BSF) employees, the central government has decided to extend ‘Disability Compensation’ to all such government servants, if they get disabled in the line of duty while performing their service and are retained in service in spite of such disablement.
Informing about the development Union Minister Dr. Jitendra Singh tweeted, “In a significant New Year decision, “Disability Compensation” has been extended for all serving govt employees if they get disabled while performing their service & are still retained in service. This also includes those who were appointed on or after 1.1.2004 & covered under NPS.”

So, from now onwards, if a central government employee, which includes BSF employees too, gets disabled while performing their duties and this disablement is attributed to government service, in that case, if he is still retained in the service in spite of disablement, a lump sum compensation will be paid to him by arriving at the capitalised value of the disability element, with reference to the commutation table in force from time to time.
As per the 2009 order of the government did not provide such compensation to those central government servants who were appointed on or after 1st January 2004 and covered under National Pension System (NPS), declares a statement issued by the Personnel Ministry.
Apart from the BSF employees, this new move will provide a huge relief to CRPF, CISF, etc. too, since disability in the performance of duties is generally reported in their case.
