A GREAT INJUSTICE TO PRE 2006 DEFENCE PENSIONERS
The 6th CPC recommended a same pay band PB-1 (5200-20200) for the three lower ranks (Sepoy, Naik and Havildar) and did not stipulate the maximum scale of pay for each rank to calculate the revised pension. Same is the case for the officers. Pension tables were prepared (Annexure II for Officers and Annexure III for PBOR) by taking the minimum pay of Rs.5200 for all the ranks (Sepoy to Hav.) the same amount. How can a same amount be taken for three different ranks to arrive at a revised pension ? What is the justice for Senior/Junior ranks ?
The MOD officials have done a great injustice, knowing very well that is an injustice. The tables Annexure II and III clearly showed reduction in the pension for Senior Ranks and increase in the pension for junior ranks. Even then the MOD did not attempt to correct or balance the tables so that the senior ranks are not affected. The MOD officials intelligently waved hand to refer Annexure I whenever Annexure II or III is not beneficial. It is a great mockery of justice. The officials responsible for this great/grave mistake should be made to accept the fact and the entire orders on the revision of pension for the 6th CPC for the Defence pensioners (Pre 2006) to be withdrawn and re-issued in consultation with the representatives of the All India Ex-servicemen Organisations like IESM pending final decision by the government on the subject.
A detailed study is being made on the subject with limited resources. Unless the government comes out with clear orders on the subject with some immediate remedial measures, the reactions will be very bad. In lame man’s language, it is a question of cheating two million defence pensioners (Pre 2006) by the bureaucrats with the tip of their pens with tight lips.
