IESM General Body Meeting held on 16 Sep 2010

Dear Colleagues,
The IESM Governing body had a meeting this evening from 1730 to 2030 hours. It was attended by CK Sharma, Vinod Gandhi, Parvesh Renjen, Aditya Jaini, Sharan Ahuja, Rakesh Chaturvedi and self. Minutes will be prepared and disseminated shortly. Gist of major decisions is:
  • The existing methods have shown positive results and should continue
  • In view of the government having conceded our demand for a separate pay commission, the PM should be approached to constitute the pay commission at the earliest without waiting for the Seventh Pay Commission
  • Support of maximum Number of MsP should be garnered before the winter session of the Parliament.
    We welcome the following members into the IESM fold: -
    1. Rear Admiral Ravi Kshetrapal
    2. Air Cmde Badhwar
    3. Cmde MR Khan
    4. AVM JS Sisodia
    5. Shri Gulshan Kalra – supporter
    We also compliment Aditya Jaini for being the motivator.
    Best regards,
    Lt Gen (Emeritus) Raj Kadyan, PVSM, AVSM, VSM
    Chairman IESM

    OROP Campaign
    We acknowledge that the IESM has a difficult campaign (OROP) ahead, but if it can continue to develop its membership – and we know the cause is popular and just – then it stands a far better chance of quick success. Presently it is run by people who recognize that, and are prepared to work at it, and certainly IESM will go from strength to strength. The NDTV OROP Program is an eye opener and one perceives the hurdles one need to surmount before Rank, Honour, Status and Equitable Pension are granted to all Retired Military Personnel. The alternative is a continuation of the steady decline as we have seen other Ex Servicemen Organisations who have a great structure but no substance! Therefore it is imperative all ESM join hands to espouse for a common cause to benefit every stream of our fraternity.
