Hi Sgt Yadav, If you are getting service pension and discharged under LMC you can claim for disability pension depending upon certain circumstances, the onset of Disability, attributability, and aggravation of disability etc. In some cases when injury or disease is not termed as attributable or aggravated but still disability pension is given. If you need further advice you may like to contact us. Regards

Seems you are eligible for Medical Pension but something definite can only be said once your papers are seen.
The disability should have casual connection with service condition as well as aggravated and attributable to service.
Some other details are to be also discussed and then it can be said with finality.Case has to be filed for getting it.
