    I think no one committee will resolve the anomolies of pension of JCOs OR. However I Suggest the following:-

    (a) Rate of Commutation of pension- D rate of pension should be as per 5th pay commission.

    (b) Gratutity – should be min 10 lacs as promissed earliest.

    (c) Hony sub Maj pension – All ranks are getting hony rank pension except Hony Sub Maj. This rank should also be given the pension as fixed for Sub Maj. Otherwise don't grant this rank.

    (d) Grade pay – Grade pay of the ranks should be fixed as per civil. such as ARO – 4600, (Nb sub), RO- 4800 (Sub), SO- 5400 (Sub Maj).
