Pensio Help to Mrs Patil

Subject: Mrs Lalita Patil's surprise visit

Dear Ravi,
Mrs Lalita Ashok Patil w/o late Wg Cdr Ashok Patil called on us yesterday. I had settled her pension arrears etc about six months back. She stays at Kolhapur and thus I had forgotten about this case.She wanted to become member of IESM but could not visit Pune all these days.I gave her application form and asked to donate voluntarily. She gave me a cheque for Rs 10,000/- alongwith the application.She has also, on my request ,agreed to assemble exclusive meet for widows at Kolhapur in next few months. I have handed over additional membership forms for this purpose.
I will be handing over her application and cheque this evening to you.
We must promptly send her a donation receipt. Cdr NP Jain's receipt is still awaited.

Rank Pay case in supreme court

From: RDOA India
Subject: Re: Fw: [IESM_GovBody] Fw: Approx Arrears Of Fourth Pay Commission
To: "ramantn sarma"
Date: Wednesday, 2 February, 2011, 10:43 AM

Dear Veteran,
There is no need for anybody to seek intervention in the case. It will only delay matters further. The verdict has already been given by the apex court.
The court has to decide on the appeal filed by the Govt for modification of order for which the date has been fixed as 24 Feb 2010.Kindly wait for that and please tell others also not to be trigger happy on going to courts. RDOA does not want the issue to get messed up. By doing so we would only be playing the govts card.

Family Pension: Lt Col and Equivalent Ranks

Lt Gen Raj Kadyan, PVSM, AVSM, VSM
262, Sector-17A, Gurgaon – 122 001
Dated: 17 January 2011

Mrs Sushma Nath, IAS
Secretary Ex Servicemen Welfare Department
Ministry of Defence
South Block, New Delhi – 110 011

Family Pension: Lt Col and Equivalent Ranks
Widows of Lt Cols and their equivalent ranks had been drawing a monthly pension of Rs 15,420.00 after implementation of the Sixth Pay Commission and after the Lt Cols were upgraded to Pay Band 4. This had been correctly worked out based on 30% of the sum of the minimum of pay band (Rs 37,400) + Grade Pay (Rs 8000) + Military Service Pay (Rs 6000). Widows have accordingly been getting their pension and have also received the arrears. However, an assumed error has now been introduced in the pension tables issued by the Ministry of Defence vide their circular dated 15.11.2010. According to these tables, the family pension of a Lt Col is fixed at Rs 8,760.00. It seems the Lt Col and equivalents have again been brought down to Pay Band 3 by those that prepared these tables.
The figure of Rs 8,760.00 as monthly family pension of Lt Col is beyond comprehension and this has caused avoidable consternation in the Ex Servicemen community, who are already edgy at their still pending demand of ‘one rank one pension’. I do sincerely hope this is only an error. May I request you to have it kindly rectified at the earliest.
A confirmation will be much appreciated.
With best regards,
Yours sincerely,
Raj Kadyan

Rank Pay Case- Government scuttling the Supreme Court orders

Dear Friends,

The rank pay case came up in the Supreme Court today.

The Govt Council put a plea that a lot of similar petions had been filed in various High Courts but all of them have not been transferred to the Supreme Court, as such further hearing should only be held after all such petitions are transferred.
The learned council for the Retired Defence Officers Association pleaded that the Supreme Court has already given its judgement in the case of Maj Dhanapalan case and there is no requirement for transfer of all cases, as the decision in this case will automatically be applicable to all such cases as well as similar placed officers.
The Honble Judge of the Supreme Court then adjourned our case to 24 Jan 2011.
Kindly inform all affected offrs.

With warm Regards,
Col Baldev Singh Dhillon (Retd)
