    Aggrieved at apathetic attitude of govt, say ex-servicemen

     Monday, February 22, 2016


    Tribune News Service
    Patiala, February 21
    The State Ex-Servicemen Welfare Association (SEWA), Punjab, organised an “Insaf Rally” at the Anaj Mandi here. Various ex-servicemen organisations from Punjab, Haryana and Uttarakhand took part in the rally. The ex-servicemen said they were aggrieved at the apathetic attitude of the government towards One Rank One Pension (OROP) as passed by the Parliament. “Truncated OROP has been implemented denying justice to their rightful demands. There is a huge gap between the minimum and maximum pay and pension of the men in uniform. There is an urgent need to raise the pay and pension of lower rank defence personnel,” the ex-servicemen said. Col Kuldip Singh Grewal (retd), president, State Ex-Servicemen Welfare Association, said after recruitment, soldiers had to undergo military training and professional training before being fit for battle. Even after attaining professional skills, they are equated with Class IV employees in government offices in terms of pay and pension. “Widows of pensioners who after putting in a few years of service are discharged on medical grounds are placed on minimum pension i.e. Rs 3,500, which is too little to sustain their living,” he said. Addressing the ex-servicemen, who came from several parts of North India, Grewal said: “Danger to life is same for all ranks. So, there is a need to raise minimum military service pay of jawans”. Others who spoke on the occasion said the next of kin of those soldiers who attain martyrdom in battle or insurgency should be adequately compensated monetarily in equitable manner irrespective of rank. The anomalies existing in the OROP, which is implemented vide government notification issued in November last, should be corrected without wasting more time to end the ongoing agitations by the ESM community. “Charts notified by the PCDA (Pension) have numerous discrepancies, which need to be rectified,” said the speakers, adding that either the soldiers should be allowed to serve till 60 years of age or their pension should be fixed at the top of the pay band.

    1. This is not new in INDIA. Please read the book "THOUSAND YEAR SLAVERY". There is a chapter which deals with the treatment of soldiers in our country for centuries.

    2. Mr Modi and Parrikar think that Armed Forces means guns, tanks, aircrafts, submarines, ships and such equipment. We veterans are fighting to impress upon them that men are required to operate those war machines and they require a bold and generous heart to sacrifice their lives in the process. But they fail to understand why majority of them live to claim OROP now. Besides scrapping the PMR, on retirement they may propose an novel idea, the 'euthanasia' to those surviving and retiring soldiers/airmen and the sailors. With that, the pension burden in future will be lessened once for all.

      1. Why 'euthanesia' when there is a better argument.Father of the Nation Ghandhi was an exserviceman. He has taken part in the War in South Africa. He has never asked for "One rank one pension". Follow him and forget about the pension.

      2. Dear sir anonymous,

        Gandhi worked in south africa as a supporting force to heal the wounded soldier through red cross, here we are poor people joined the army to earn our livelihood. do not compare and contrast mahathma no one equate his service and sacrifices rendered by mahathma to the cause of mankind and human, we are ordinary soldiers having own family and children, how we can sacrifice our OROP

      3. Mr Anonymous27 February 2016 at 08:52, you are rewriting the history with your GK. MAHATMA GANDHI never served any Army. He was a lawyer who fought for civil rights of blacks in SA.

    3. The minimum pension of a PBOR must be equivalent to minimum wages recommended by the 7CPC and should not be based on a percentage of the last pay drawn. For JCOs and Officers the current pension fixation as per the OROP tables with corrections where pointed out by the ESM. IF THE PBOR pension is not improved from its present lower standards, then it will be gross injustice.

    6. We call our self as a separate community in INDIA. But when a great injustice is done to India in the name of Ex-Servicemen we never bother. We always talk about OROP and pension. What happened when "ADARSH SCANDAL" happened. Every trick was used using Exservicemen and KARGIL.Any ex servicemen organisation protested.
      Let us all think about it. Why babus and natas treat us so babdly?
