VAUGE PROMISE BY PRIME MINISTER.


Will Prime Minister Modi keep his word on One Rank One Pension?

And far more importantly, should he?

On September 15, 2013, the then Chief Minister of Gujarat Narendra Modi spoke passionately at a rally in Rewari to honour retired members of the armed forces:
“Today, I publicly demand from the government of India on behalf of the army men and ex-service men of this country, to publish a white paper on the status of the ‘one rank, one pension’ scheme.”




A year into being Prime Minister, he has pleaded that the government be given more time to implement the One Rank One Pension, or OROP, scheme given the complexities of the issues involved. If he fails to implement the scheme, he will not only invite the ire of army veterans and renege on a campaign promise, but will be in contempt of the highest court in the land.

UFESM- MET DEFENCE MINISTER-- OROP.

Government committed to implement 'One Rank One Pension': Manohar Parrikar to ex-servicemen

By PTI | 3 Jul, 2015, 08.29PM IST 

NEW DELHI: Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar has conveyed the NDA government's "unequivocal commitment" in implementing 'One Rank One Pension' (OROP) when a delegation of ex-servicemen, who are on a strike for past 19 days pressing for its execution, met him.
Parrikar has conveyed the NDA government's "unequivocal commitment" in implementing OROP when a delegation of ex-servicemen met him.

Not happy with Parrikar's assurance, the agitating ex-servicemen said the question of ending the protest does not arise without a government announcement on implementing the long-pending demand.

"A six member delegation of United Front of Ex-Servicemen (UFESM) met the Defence Minister last night. Parrikar conveyed unequivocal commitment of the party (BJP)and the government towards implementation of OROP," said Col (retd) Anil Kaul, spokesman of the Front.

INJUSTICE TO 100% WAR WOUNDED SOLDIER'S WIFE.


 We had already published this case in our blog on October 27, 2014.
there si no progress . Hence , we are once again publishing the same for  a favourable action by Authorities concern.



PLIGHT OF WIDOWS OF WAR VETERANS.



Our Chief Liaison Officer Sgt.S.Kanthiah ( Retd) is handing over a copy of the arrears calculation sheet to the War Injury Veteran VM.Kandan- 
The photo was taken on 9-4-2010 when he called on for  correction of his pension.
Now he expired on 29-3-2014.


PLIGHT OF WIDOWS OF WAR WOUNDED SOLDIERS.


Here is a pitiable case of a  widow of  a War wounded  soldier.

One Sepoy Vanumamalai Kandan, ( 8002935) from Pioneer Records  was wounded  during Chinese aggression  in the year 1962. He  lost his right Hand.   He was sanctioned with 100% war injury pension with constant Attended Allowance.  Qualifying Service – 2yrs.
     PPO,No; D/ 742/72,   D/BC/ 6033/2003 and D/BC/IP/10723/2007

His Eligible monthly pension.
Service Element …………………………….              . 5644.00  w.e.f 24-9-2012 (Cir 501) 
War injury Element 100%.................  9200.00   as per CDA cir 456.
                              14844.00
DA at 90%..for 14844……………..       13360.00
Constant Attendance Allowance…       3000.00
  Total monthly pension ………………. 31204.00

Now the  pensioner died on 29-3-2014.

As per Joint notification, D/ JN/ 361/2004,  his wife is sanctioned with the minimum pension of Rs.3500/ -and with DA at 90%  3150  Total of Rs.6650/- per month.

See the difference between 31204  and 6650/-, a difference of  Rs.24554/ - per month.

The poor widow is eligible for this rs.6650 only from 30-2-2014.

Is it not a great INJUSTICE  .  At least , such widows may be sanctioned with Special Family pension  or some other formula by which the widows may be able to adjust  but not this much 400 %  less.  The service element may be fixed as Basic  pension.

All our Ex-servicemen organizations  are requested to view such cases seriously and project to authorities concerned  to remove this Himalayan difference in pension  and help the pitiable conditions of the innocent widows.  
Where and how these widows, mostly illiterate   will go and submit / express their grievances.

·         Our Welfare Trust  hopes  that our sincere appeal to all our ESM organizations  may bring some kind of awareness among ourselves to come forward to help the war widows.

We have already represented this to our Army Veteran cell and IESM and DIWAVE  for taking up the matter for higher rate of family pension for such war widows.  

The War widow also has represented to Pioneer Record Office for higher rate of pension..

AN INTERESTING ARTICLE TO READ.




Dear PM. ,

Veterans sitting on a relay hunger strike at Jantar Mantar and 50 cities across India.

A small child fears for his grandfather's life.
 He asks his father,why is Dada sitting on hunger strike at Jantar Mantar? Father tells him, Beta he is fighting for his right. The boy says, But Dada told me he fought in 1965 and 1971 wars, now he has retired, who is he fighting? Beta, he is fighting the Govt. The boy asks, Is he fighting the Pak Govt or the Chinese Govt? No Beta, he is fighting the Indian Govt. 
The boy is shocked. Indian Govt? Why should he fight his own  Govt?  Beta, he is fighting for OROP, which was promised 40 years ago but not implemented till date.
 But Papa, Dada is 75 years old, will he get OROP in his lifetime? 
Papa dont people in Govt know what it is to face bullets, or live in -40 degrees Celsius?
 The father replies, Beta, our PM has promised on many occasions, Dada hopes he will implement before he dies.
 The PM is a good man, but Finance people are trying to block OROP.

 You know beta, in 1983 the then Finance Minister opposed free rations to Defence personnel. Indira Gandhi told him to sign the letter by next morning, and it was done. I wonder if our PM will be able to do it?  

Mr PM, this story tells a tale of apathy, disrespect, and denial of OROP to Defence personnel.

You have always stated your regard for Defence personnel. 
Demonstrate now that you really do
. The soldier trusts you. Dont break that trust, for once broken then everything is lost.
 Regards and best wishes.
