This facility is fully utilized by the widows.

        It is recommended that similar provision of four seats be done for Military Nursing Service selection by exempting the above category widows from written test and directly calling them for interview and selection process. This will benefit a good majority of widows, who are BSc nursing qualified.

One Rank One Pension Latest News

Be patient: Navy chief to veterans on 'One rank, One pension'



New Delhi: Navy Chief Admiral RK Dhowan on Thursday asked ex-servicemen to be patient on "One rank, One pension" scheme and added that the central government was "very serious" about the issue.

"We need to be patient. The government has been seized of the matter. The defence ministry will address the concerns of ex-servicemen," Dhowan told journalists after the conclusion of the Naval Commander's conference here.
"I can only say the government is very serious. To the best of my knowledge a lot of progress has been made. A final decision rests with the government," he said.

The comment comes on a day when two war veterans boycotted a function where they were to be felicitated by Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar. 

Wing Commander S.D. Karnik and Wing Commander Bhopadekar were protesting against the delay in the proposed "One rank, One pension" scheme for the armed forces.

"The two veterans have refused to attend the function and all ex-servicemen support them," Maj. Gen. (retd) Satbir Singh of the Indian Ex-Servicemen Movement told IANS.

Parrikar had said the files on 'One rank, One pension' have already been sent to the finance ministry.




In Fight for One Rank One Pension, War Veterans Boycott Event: 10 Developments


In Fight for One Rank One Pension, War Veterans Boycott Event: 10 Developments



NEW DELHI:  Two war veterans today boycotted a function where they were to be felicitated by Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, to protest against the delay in implementation of "one rank, one pension" for the armed forces.
  1. One of them is Wing Commander SD Karnik, a 1971 war veteran who was awarded the Vir Chakra, one of India's top gallantry medals. "Since 1973 we haven't got any support from the government. This is downgrading the armed forces. I am hurt," he said.
  2. Prime Minister Narendra Modi was widely expected to announce it on Monday when he addressed a rally in Mathura in Uttar Pradesh, but he didn't.
  3. NDTV has learnt that the file on one rank, one pension, a BJP election promise, is currently shuttling between the Finance and Defence Ministries after several queries were raised. Sources tell NDTV that the government doesn't want to announce anything that can be challenged in court.
  4. "One rank, one pension" means that the same pension will be paid to personnel retiring in the same rank with the same length of service, irrespective of when they retired.
  5. "I may not like ex-servicemen protesting but they are being pushed into it," said former Army Chief General VP Mallik. Ex-servicemen say they call it NATO - "No Action, Talk Only."
  6. Currently, the pension for retired personnel is based on the pay commission recommendations at the time when the personnel retired. For instance, a Major General who retired in 1996 draws less pension than a Lt. Colonel who retired after 1996.
  7. With one rank, one pension, retired personnel would draw the same pension as officers and jawans of the same rank who are retiring now. They would also be entitled to a year's back pay in pensions at the new rate, which would be a windfall for pensioners.
  8. Six years ago, the Supreme Court directed the government to follow a one rank, one pension principal for retired servicemen. In February this year, the court said failure to implement it within three months would mean contempt of court.
  9. One rank, one pension will benefit 25 lakh ex-servicemen. It is expected to cost the government more than 8300 crore a year.
  10. In its Budget last year, months before the national election, the Congress-led UPA government announced that one-rank-one pay would be implemented, but allocated meagre 500 crore seen as inadequate funds for the initiative.

One Rank One Pension Cleared in Principle, PM Modi to Take Final Call: Sources
NEW DELHI:  The Centre has in principle cleared the 'One Rank One Pension' scheme for retired armed forces personnel, sources have told NDTV. The government has made a provision for an additional Rs. 8,300 crore for this purpose.

The scheme, which seeks to ensure that a uniform pension is paid to defence personnel who retire at the same rank with the same length of service, irrespective of their date of retirement, has been a long-standing demand of the over 20 lakh ex-servicemen in the country. Majority of Defence personnel hang up their boots much before 60 years. Also, over the years the disparity in the pension drawn by personnel of same rank who retired for instance a decade ago and those who retire now is substantial.

Demand for One Rank One Pension has been an emotive issue with defence pensioners for long. And, between 2008- 2010 veterans have on several occasions marched to Rashtrapati Bhavan to return their gallantry medals.

Sources say once Prime Minister Narendra Modi is back on May 19 from his three-nation tour, a final round of discussions will take place with him. The official announcement is likely to be made later this month, coinciding with the first anniversary celebrations of the NDA government.

The government has already made it clear that One Rank One Pension will be implemented with effect from April 1, 2014.
