Defence Ministry to Look into Issue of Tax on Disability Pension, Says Rajnath Singh


The issue of tax on disability pension for military personnel was Thursday raised in the Lok Sabha by Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, with Defence Minister Rajnath Singh saying his ministry will look into the issue.

As soon as Chowdhury raised the issue during the zero hour, Congress members rushed to the well and raised slogans like “Sena ko nayay do’ (Give justice to Army) and ‘sena ke naam pe vote mangana band karo’ (stop asking votes in the name of Army).

With Congress members creating a ruckus in the House, Speaker Om Birla said they were disturbing new members which was not right.

Chowdhury said new members should be given chance to speak again and again. Read More
