We heartily welcome the following veterans click me from Bangalore who have joined the IESM family and compliment the motivator, the dynamic IESM Convener Karnataka, Colonel SS Rajan.
We continue receiving a large number of requests and messages relating to the IESM pension and the ECHS cells. These two newly created cells have been received well by the environment. With the dedicated experts involved in the running of these cells, one can hope for a high level of satisfaction.
With the seeming/ perceived lack of movement on the part of the government on OROP, an odd email received from veterans betrays a kind of despondency at the lull. We need to remind ourselves that OROP as an issue is over 25 years old. A long struggle was only to be expected – it is not a six-day war. The pace of tempo is bound to vary. However, the constitution of the Cabinet Secretary’s Committee, inclusion of the OROP in the Presidential address and earmarking of over Rs 2100 Crores in the current fiscal for ESM pensions are visible signs of progress and are the result of your struggle. We have to retain optimism and keep the pressure on.
