FROM VETERANS SOCIETY WHO ARE FINANCIALLY AFFECTED
We are going through the ongoing tussle between your goodness and the MOD regarding the anomalies and other issues due to 7th CPC recommendations. As far as the welfare of veterans PBORs concern we do not find anything with regards to these anomalies raised by you and why should we be penalized. So many retired Major Generals, Lt.Generals and senior officers’ equivalent from all the three forces have hailed your decision of rejecting the Pay commission verdict. With regard to demoralization issue we all are with you along with others. At the same time you are kindly requested to note as veterans we are also not happy with the step motherly activities and injustice done to us should have been projected. Those who have given their youth to this nation and had a good faith on the superiors are more than the serving men by numbers. All the Three chiefs of our armed forces are supposed to look after the welfare of their veterans also because we are still coming under their particular core even after discharge from service. Did anybody take up issue and got our legitimate dues?
I would like to give a list of grievances of PBORs and family pensioners which need your urgent intervention so that the actual sufferers may live peacefully at least till their last breathe.
1. Issue of correct PPO indicating actual qualifying service and group.
So many family pensioners are drawing lesser pension because their PPO is not updated for the last 10 years. The affected pensioners are above 75 plus maximum and the reply given by the CPPCs are we have asked for the details from PCDA and only on receipt of the documents the discrepancy can be solved.
2. EQUAL MILITARY SERVICE PAY
Why there should be slab system in the MSP when all are undergoing and undergone the same difficulties? Why there should be difference in High altitude allowance and other allowances which does not have any concern with the basic pay?
3. ISSUE OF DGL TO ALL ELIGIBLE PBOR VETERANS
There are plenty of veterans living in industrial areas are having capacity to organize not only man power but also know how to handle the administration. Why they should be forced to work under some other agencies after retirement?
4. DSSA BOARD EMPLOYMENT::
So many Sainik boards and ZSBs are having maximum civilian staff where as the posts are meant for the ex-servicemen wards only on priority basis. There should be a monitoring agency to look in to this problem.
5. DELINKING OF 33 YEARS CRITERIA FOR EARNING PENSION
Even after the issue of OM we have not received any information about this issue. As far as the civilians concern already they have received their arrears. This is a major issue which needs your kind intervention.
Dear all sirs, when we support your cause without any hesitation, is it not your moral responsibility to look into our grievances.
A COIN SHOULD HAVE TWO SIDES. PLEASE THINK ABOUT THE VETERANS AND THEIR FAMILIES ALSO WHEN YOU DEMAND CERTAIN LEGITIAMATE RIGHTS FROM GOI.
