The major reasons for seeking premature retirement include compassionate grounds; medical grounds; domestic reasons; other Government Civil/ Armed Forces Employment; and supersession.

Government has taken various steps to check premature retirement which include implementation of recommendations of the Central Pay Commissions with improved pay structure, additional family accommodation through Married Accommodation Project (MAP) and improvement in promotion prospects in Armed Forces. Further, Government has taken various measures to create appropriate environment for defence personnel, so that they can perform their duty with least mental stress. Some of these include improvement in living and working conditions through provision of better infrastructure and facilities, liberalized leave policy, establishing a grievance redressal mechanism, provision of psychological counselling by qualified counsellors and conduct of yoga and meditation as part of unit routine.

This information was given by Defence Minister Shri Manohar Parrikar in a written reply to Shri Harish Chandra Alias Harish Dwivedi in Lok Sabha today.
