This is how India treats its ‘Armed Forces Veterans’

via ESM Press Release published on March 3, 2010


1.   Indian Ex-Servicemen Movement (IESM) an organization spear heading the protest Movement  since 27 Apr 2008 to get Justice to the Defence Personnel, wishes to inform the people of India that the Govt  continues to  do Injustice to the Armed Forces   specially the Ex-Servicemen. We watched with dismay on Lok Sabha TV Channel, the Hon’ble Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh making a Statement on the floor of the house that the enhancement of pensions to JCO’S and Jawans announced by the Govt on 06 July 09 has been implemented. This was in response to the statement by Hon’ble Shiri LK Adwani that OROP for which the Govt had earmarked over Rs 2100 Crores  per year to benefit 12 Lacs JCO’S  and  Jawans has not been implemented.
2.   The fact is, till today no Jawan or JCO has received any orders for the enhancement of pensions. Even the Service HQs where an inquiry was made has confirmed that orders for enhancement of pensions of JCO’S and Jawans as announced by the Govt on 06 July 2009 have not been received.

3.   It is a very serious matter of impropriety by the person no less than the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India on the floor of the house. Is it that some Bureaucrat has goofed it ?. Like the 1962 war and  Mumbai Terror Attack, the concerned  Bureaucrat will again get away unscathed.
