Dear Renjen and Brig Kamboj,
I think, we have to give full marks to Gen Renjen in the art of persuasion. He did manage to get me down to do a bit of figure work which I was trying to shy out of! And, of course, I have been given assistance by a younger officer, who would like to remain anonymous.
A table giving the comparative figures of pension granted to officers at different ranks on the date of change over are given in the attached table. Notice the contrast between the smooth management of change during the 5th Pay Commission and the one this time. As you study these figures, it becomes clear why the passions aroused this time are unlikely to get doused easily.
If some one can make out a similar table for PBOR, it would be great service. I think the job can be done by any competent JCO clerk, given the necessary inputs.
Maj Gen Surjit Singh (Retd)
