How Big Brothers are conducting themselves with VETERANS ( JCOs and below ) Prabhjot Singh Chhatwal PLS Retd.

Dear Veterans,
To give a soothing touch to agitated feelings of
veterans, specially, JCOs and below, the govt. of India was
kind enough to constitute a committee of Secretaries which
gave its report emphasizing on the following seven points :
1. Inclusion of Classification Allowance for PBOR w.e.f.

Jan 01,2006.
2. Removal of linkage of full pension with 33 years w.e.f.

Jan 01,2006
3. Revision of Pension of Lt. Gen. after carving out a

separate pay scale for them.
4.Broadbanding of percentage of disability/war injury

pension for Pre-01-01-2006 disability/ war injury
5.Removal of cap on war injury element of pension in the

case of disabled pensioners belonging to Category ‘E’
6.Bringing parity between pension of Pre and Post

10-10-1997 PBORs.
7.Further improving the pension of PBORs based on

award of GOM,2006.
As on today, govt. has issued orders for the first five

points, out of which only first point relates, specifically,
to the PBOR and whereas remaining four points relate
to PBORs and Officers both. Because of pay scales and
allowances, offrs. stood to gain more than the PBORs as
a result of all these four points. Hence, there is no hue
and cry on implementation of CoS report from the officers
but when the Govt. announced the Modified parity in
pension for JCOs and below at the time of last budget and
there after, officers opposed it tooth and nail to compel
the govt. to delay the issuance of the orders of Modified
Parity in Pension for PBORs and started harping on
OROP which is a remote possibility. This modified parity
in pension has, already, been given to the officers way
back in year 1998. As such, why the PBORs should not
appeal to the govt. not to implement the latest orders
regarding the improved Pension for Lt. Gen., specially,
because they have been harping on OROP only . Let them
wait for OROP. On the other hand, the Govt. should
immediately issue the orders for Modified Parity in
pension for PBORs lest it may lead to catastrophic stage.
The govt. should have implemented this report in one go
and not in peace meal. This is causing much frustration
among the JCOs and below.
