          STRUGGLE FOR OUR RIGHT

 ALL BANKs EXCEPT IOB,INDIAN BANK,Central BANK have paid pre2006 Arrears to Veterans and Families.Many of our veterans are not even aware why these arrears? leave alone wether it is correct or not.Probably veterans are aware that there was a revesion in pension vide PCDA circular 501 effective from 24 sep 2012.This raise was given to defence Officers and CG employees all. Railway retirees filed a suite for change of the effective date of these raise and won the Case. The order was universal hence the arrears for all.While the CG treated all employees alike MOD treated Defence Officers and JCOS/NCOS/ORS differently. while Others are paid at the rates of 24 sep 2012 pension Defence JCOs/NCOs/ORs were given through some cooked up tables.Thus  the arrears received by us are far less than expected.


 Let us cosider the case of an 'Y' group sepoy who served 15 Years.

            (f) total Arrears due from Jan 2006 To 23 Sep 2012     =Rs1,02,476

            (g) Received                                            =Rs17,662

          (h) Total loss                                            =Rs84,814
 
Discharged before 10 oct 1997
         (a) from Jan 2006                                      =Rs  3,748
            (b) from Jul 2009                                      =Rs  4,603
            ©   from 24 Sep 2012                                   =Rs  5,102

                       (Including DR‌)
            (f) total Arrears due from Jan 2006 To 23 Sep 2012     =Rs 91,063

            (g) Received                                            =Rs 6,204
          (h) Total loss                                            =Rs84,859

            Similarly all ranks in JCOS/NCOS/ORS are affected.  For  other ranks Kindly visit http://essaatn.blogspot.in/2015/10/loss-calculation.html.

    The arrears for those discharged prior to 10 oct 1997 is little more as they were paid less from 1-1-2006 to 30-6-2009. However Boath received arrears far less than rightfully due. While Defence officers and CG employees paid arrears resulting from making 1-1-2006 pension equal to that paid wef 24 sep 2012, JCOS/NCOS/ORS have been paid at pro rata. Basis of the calculation is that a person having 28 years QS will get full pension others will get proportionatly less percentage of pension.This could be OK if the pension is taken at the maximum of the scale but for this calculation minimum of the scale is taken.Hence JCOs are not got any arrears.This is against fundamental rules,unprecedented and not in the Sc order.Further it kills the very justice established by the subject court Order.

    Dear veterans, JCOS/NCOS/ORS pension was at 73% before 1973. but for the shake of winning a war and liberating BangalaDesh Govt has reduced our pension from 73% to 50% while upgrading civilian pension from 30% to 50%. As nobody consistantly fought for restoring it remained the same for ever. Further well above one lakh crore was in defence pension reserve (including unpaid) till 90's which was pooled with civil pension and reserve was exhausted.

        Many representations to Govt in perticular to DESW, MOD has not evoked any positive response.Recent RTI confirmed that there is no proposal to rectify the circular547 (and  the MOD order dated 03 sep 2015). many ESM associations are blowing their own trumpet but does not come forward to struggle.They only predict or say they will write. Some associations are blaming Banks or PDAs for misinterpretations , but banks go by Tables provided. Hence the wrong is done by MOD not by the banks. Some banks have paid more and later recovered. So 15 lac veterans loosing amount nearly on lac individually and cumulatively amounts to nearly 15000 crores. It is a game of throwing the financial burden on the next(period) govenment and veterans are the ultimate sufferers.

          Dear veterans due to the forgoing reasons we are decided to goto court and seeking your valuable support. We request every veterans and Veer Naaris (pre2006 discharged) to give their concent for the case and contribute a sum of Rs550/= towards the court Expenses (veer naris Rs300/=).Forms will be supplied by ESSAA or interested association. Authorised receiver of the application will give a receipt to the individual.ESSAA is responsible after the money is deposited in the Assn accout or handedover to management committee.Those who are not member of any association may deposit in the Bank account details given below.

 Copy of PPO , Filled applications along with  details of payment may kindly be sent to :  T.Sundaranathan,   Advocate,68, Sivasakthi nagar II,Rajakipakkam, Chennai - 600073.

 we also intend to clarify doubts of the veterans encountered by us.

         1. Why not a common pettion ratherthan group of individuals pettition?.

            Ordinariliy courts grand relief to the litigants only. For example the case of last held Rank pay has been benifitted only to the litigants.
        
Brief about this case. prior to 6CPC individual retiring before completing 7 months service in the last rank were granted pension of the previous rank. This was changed by 6CPC with out retrospective effect. Some individuals aggreieved by this gone to court and won. But every similarly placed persons have not been given benifit autometically.Still not made as a policy.

              Further defence officers "Rank pay" suite won by Major Dhanabalan was not benifitted automatically other officers. Retired defence Officers formed a seperate association called RDOA and won it after a long battle. more details of the case can be seen on our website essaaa.org.

            By veterans larger support only we can win our right else will continue the history of Loosing.

        If a village needs water and only available option is to dig awell they have to dig it. If they feel some others also will be using it so let them dig it, they have to wait for ever. we emphasis that they get water for their efforts and be benevolent on others. moreOver Rs550/- is very meagre amount easily affordable for winning honour and a handsome amount.

2. Cant you goto court without collecting money?.

    Leagal Battle cost lot of money and we have very limited funds at our disposal and confident of people supporting the cause. If some people or any association sponser it can be done but cannot be guarenteed of  long lasting support.

3. How about joining hands with other entitys for the cause.

       We are willing to join or associate with  any entity interested in veterans welfare. we also offer berth in the management committee to interested and experts in the field. We are interested in Gathering support for the cause rather than aquiring name or fame.  

Let us restore our pride and also Get our Right !!
