7th CPC recommends an increase in ex-gratia disability award for cadets

10.2.66 The Services have sought enhancement of ex-gratia disability award equal to stipend paid to cadets from the existing ₹6,300 per month for 100 percent disability. In support of their demand it has been contended that training of cadets is extremely demanding and a cadet is susceptible to injuries. Therefore there is a need to indemnify a cadet against any disability which may occur during the period of training.

10.2.67 The Commission notes that cadets are not considered on duty during training and therefore cannot be treated at par with serving defence forces personnel. The Commission, however, keeping in views the facts relating to cadets recommends an increase ex-gratia disability award from the existing ₹6,300 per month to ₹16,200 per month for 100 percent disability.
