Chandigarh: Punjab and Haryana High Court on Thursday rejected the Central government’s appeal and imposed a fine of Rs 50,000 for challenging the decision of a single Judge bench. 

The Centre had challenged the decision of a single bench, which had quashed the government directive of not allowing the pension benefit to a soldier with more than 50 per cent physical disability.

The Centre had challenged the decision in a division bench.
