ONE RANK ONE PENSION ‘NOT’ YET GIVEN
 
MOD NOTIFICATION OF ENHANCEMENT OF PENSIONS OF JCOS ANDJAWANS NO WHERE NEAR GRANT OF ONE RANK ONE PENSION: EXSERVICEMEN MEDALS DEPOSIT PROTEST ON 14 MAR 2010 TO CONTINUE
 
Dear Members of the Media,1. One Rank One Pension not yet given by the Govt. Notificationissued by the Defence Ministry of the enhancement of pensions of oldDefence Pensioners are no where near the grant of One Rank OnePension. The Committee of seven secretaries headed by the CabinetSecretary did not recommend OROP. It equated the Pre 1997 pensions with Post 1997 and Pre 2006 Pensioners, thus removing a 12years old anomaly. But the difference between the pre and post1.1.2006 pensioners stays untouched. After implementation of theabove notification, pre 2006 retiree Sepoy with 17 years of servicewill get a basic pension of Rs 5465 per month, whereas a Sepoy withsame years of service who retired after 1.1.2006 is getting Rs 7045/- per month. For subsequent retirees there will be further enhancementof pensions due to the yearly increase of 3 % in the pay scales.
 
2. Although the Govt had announced in the Parliament on 06 Jul2009, earmarking of Rs 2144 crores for implementation oenhancement of pensions to remove the 12 years old anomaly, noaction to implement this enhancement was taken. It required the prodding by Shri Mr. LK Advani in the Lok Sabha reminding theGovt to fulfill their commitment. The Hon’ble Prime Minister in hisreply on 3 & 5 Mar 2010 misinformed the Parliament that theenhancement of pensions of Jawans and JCOs had been implementedas promised while in actual fact the same has now been done on 08Mar 2010. This indicates an indifferent attitude of the Govt towardsthe genuine entitlements of Defence Personnel.3. The apathy shown by the Govt towards the genuine demand of theEx Servicemen has driven the gallant soldiers to the wall and theyhave resolved to continue with the protest Movement. Accordingly,the protest scheduled on 14 Mar 2010 at Jantar Mantar New Delhi
 
wherein a delegation led by Lt Gen Raj Kadyan, PVSM, AVSM,VSM, Chairman IESM will hand over the medals and memorandumsigned in blood to Her Excellency the President who has beenrequested to kindly make it convenient to receive the same in person..
4. Another biggest anomaly is with respect to theMajors and Captains who are worst affected and whoform the cutting edge of the army. Those of them whoretired before 31 December ’05 their pensions arefar below their post 01 January ’06 retiree counterparts.Also there is an enormous gap of about Rs11,000/ -inpension between a Major and a time scale Lt Col , whodid the same job . This vast gap MUST be reduced toearlier Pay Commissions levels .
5.
We strongly urge the govt NOT to misguide the mediaand the general public in this regard and implement‘One Rank One Pension’ with sincerity, other wise theongoing agitation of the Ex-Servicemen will be furtherintensifierd .
6. Members of the media are requested to cover the eventextensively to inform the people of India about the mistreatment of Military by the Govt.In.Put:-Lt Col B M Thapa, Veteran, IESMGren secy ESM, Doon Valley
 
ONE RANK ONE PENSION ‘NOT’ YET GIVEN
 
 
An impression is being created by the govt that with theimplementation of remaining two points as recommended by the‘Committee of Secretaries’ headed by the Cabinet Secretary , the personsbelow officer rank will get ‘One Rank One Pension’ , which is TOTALLYwrong . What will happen after the implementation of all the sevenrecommendations of the ‘Committee’ is that pre 1996 military retireeswould be brought closer to post 1996 such retirees who got the benefit of the 5
th
Pay Commission Award . All those who retired BEFORE 6
th
PayCommission, i.e. before 31 December 2005 , will NOT get any benefit intheir basic pension as awarded by 6 th Pay Commission and will NOT beany where near post 01 January 2006 retirees except in few ranks like LtCols and Lt Gens. One Rank One Pension means that ALL military retireeswho retired earlier MUST get same pension as their counterparts aregetting today , irrespective of their date of retirement .
 
We strongly urge the govt NOT to misguide the media and thegeneral public in this regard and implement ‘One Rank One Pension’ withsincerity, other wise the ongoing agitation of the Ex-Servicemen will befurther intensifierd .
