Subject: Disability Pension- A Presentation to RRM
I had been invited by Brig Gulia, Chairman IESL, to give a presentation to the RRM and other very senior officers. The Secy (ESW) and Gen Shankar Roy Choudhary were present. Date of presentation 22 Oct 10.
I was overwhelmed at the response received from those attending the gathering on the occasion. In fact the RRM congratulated me and requested a copy of my presentation for him to take with him to study. I gave him along with my presentation click here, a copy of Medical responsibilities of other countries specifying the responsibility of Prosthetics. Along with that, I gave him a copy of the AFT judgment specifying that:
At the end of the presentation, he promised to act on the issues especially on Data of War Disabled on an emergent basis and also take up anomalies on account pay raised by others. On this score, he advised that each item to be acted upon should be on a seperate sheet rather than on the same page. He also promised to put a halt on unnecessary appeals on AFT judgments.
I thank Lt Gen Vijay Oberoi, who granted me permission to use his earlier article, which I did to the maximum and Satnam for his advice when formulating my presentation. I thank Brig Gulia and his team for providing me the opportunity to present our case. I had to also speak on behalf of Veterans and War Widows as their representatives had to cancel at the last minute.
(Foot note- In my presentation I brought out the 5th Pay commission acceptance, the widows pension not being increased and the other aspects discussed in Inder’s office albeit in my own way.
Best wishes and regards,
