They find themselves out of job and the pension they get is quite inadequate considering the fact they have to shoulder burgeoning responsibilities. The problem is accentuated on the untimely demise of the pensioner. Towards this a study is being undertaken at College of Defence Management, Secunderabad for giving recommendation to the VII pay commission for enhancement of the pension.
