7th CPC recommendations for Defence Security Corps (DSC) Personnel

Defence Security Corps (DSC) Personnel

10.2.27 The Services have sought reduction in the qualifying service for entitlement of second pension to Defence Security Corps (DSC) personnel from 15 to 10 years. To support their demand it has been contended that all employees taking up second employment in Central Government establishments earn their second pension after completing 10 years of service whereas for DSC personnel 15 years of service is mandatory.

Analysis and Recommendations

10.2.28 The Commission notes that personnel in the Defence Security Corps are tasked to protect defence units/installations and defence civil establishments and they are subject to the Army Act. The personnel in the Corps are drawn from amongst JCOs and ORs retiring from active service from the three Services. The present demand is made on the premise that all employees taking up second employment in Central Government establishments earn their second pension after completing 10 years of service. This does not however hold true post 1 January, 2004. Civilian personnel joining after 1.1.2004 are covered only by the National Pension System, therefore those taking up second employment in Central Government establishments will also not be entitled to any pension, other than through the defined contribution regime. The Commission therefore does not recommend reduction in the qualifying service for entitlement of second pension to Defence Security Corps (DSC) personnel from 15 to 10 years.
