The Army has sought rectification of an anomaly that has affected about 39,000 officers. It has stated that the error should have been corrected in August 2012, when the Ministry of Defence okayed the move. All officers in service as on January 1, 2006, were to get an additional increment.
It further said to bring parity, all employees whose increments were due between February and June 2006 may be granted one increment on January 1, 2006. Based on the Finance Ministry letter, the MoD issued its letter saying the same be implemented for the forces too. The Army has compiled details of all affected officers, some of whom may have retired, and sent a copy to the CGDA.
