OROP : VETERANS CALL OFF FAST UNTO DEATH STIR

Three members of the ex-servicemen fraternity on 'Fast Unto Death' (FUD) at Jantar Mantar for 'full' One Rank One Pension (OROP) have called it off following appeals from fellow veterans. However, they said that their protest would continue. Three veterans, Mrs Sudesh Goyat, Hav Major Singh and Hav Mohinder Singh with the Indian Ex-Servicemen Movement (IESM) have been on fast unto death since January 15. On Sunday, Mrs. Goyat was admitted to Army's Research & Referral (RR) hospital after her health deteriorated. Veterans said that as her condition worsened, doctors advised that she must have oral diet. In view of that, the veterans collectively appealed to her to end the fast which she accepted on Wednesday afternoon.

Maj Gen Satbir Singh, Chairman of IESM said that they would continue their agitation till the government implemented ‘full’ OROP. He said that Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar had refused their requests for a meeting which he said was “total insensitivity and apathy on the part of the Government.” A group of veterans had rejected the version implemented by the government stating that it deviated from the accepted definition of OROP which means equalisation of pension every year as against the approved five years. Defence sources said that Mr. Parrikar was busy in the election campaign in Goa as well as the events related to the Republic Day.

PM Modi, Parrikar let down soldiers on One Rank One Pension, says Congress

PM Modi, Parrikar let down soldiers on One Rank One Pension, says Congress

Congress leader Sachin Pilot addressing a press conference in Jaipur.(PTI Photo) Defence minister Manohar Parrikar and Prime Minister Narendra Modi has let down soldiers on the One Rank One Pension issue, Congress leader Sachin Pilot said on Friday, referring to Parrikar as BJP’s “return gift” to Goa. “As far as One Rank One Pension is concerned, this government has actually gone back on its commitment. The honourable Prime Minister, then a PM candidate, had assured to implement OROP in full.” “Why are those people, army officers and jawans still sitting at Jantar Mantar and protesting if all demands were fulfilled,” Pilot told a press conference at the state Congress headquarters in Panaji, adding that “there is actually a betrayal of trust because a lot of ex-servicemen supported the BJP on that issue”. “A lot of generals, army jawans, officers of the army, etc. have met Rahul Gandhi and I was also present at that meeting and they feel absolutely cheated. It is not becoming of a national leader to commit something publicly and then not deliver on it. In the fallacy that they have sold and Parrikar is party to it,” the Congress leader said. Referring to comments made by senior BJP leaders, who during the ongoing poll campaign in Goa, had referred to Parrikar as a “gift” to the central government, he said: “As far as him being a gift to government of India, he is probably more like a return gift.” “I think BJP should have the courage to declare what they are really intending to do, as opposed to play games with the people of Goa,” he said. The BJP has hinted that Parrikar, who was elevated to the Union cabinet in 2014, may return to state politics after the February 4 polls.

7th Pay Commission: Post Independence, salary of senior Central Govt officials' hiked from Rs 2,000 to Rs 2.50 lakh

New Delhi, January 27:

After Independence, the Indian government has announced seven central pay commission on a regular interval. In last 68 years, since India got its Independence there has been an impressive hike in salary of senior central government officials’, which has gone up from Rs 2,000 to Rs 2.50 lakh. Also in last 38 years, the minimum wage has not seen any big changes as it has increased from Rs 55 (1st Pay Commission) to Rs 18,000 (7CPC). Under the 7CPC the high-powered committee had recommended a 14.27 per cent increase in the basic pay of government employees. In 1947, after India got its Independence, the lowest salary of central government employees was Rs 55 per month while most of the senior central government employees took home a salary of Rs 2000 per month. The 1st Pay Commission continued till 1957 after which the minimum wage was increased to Rs 80 while maximum salary was increased to Rs 3,000.
After 6th Pay Commission came into effect the minimum wage came up by Rs 7000 per month whereas the monthly salary of senior government officials rose to Rs 90,000.
Under the 7th pay commission slab, the salaries of the government employees saw a significant rise. The basic pay under the 7CPC the lowest salary was increased to Rs 18,000 from Rs 7,0000 while the salary of the senior government officials has gone up to Rs 2.50 lakh from Rs 90,000.

According to a rough calculation, in last 68 years, the government has increased the minimum salary of its employees from Rs 55 to Rs 18,000 per month – which is a hike of 32,727 per cent. While the salary of senior government officials has seen a drastic jump, from Rs 2,000 per month to Rs 2.50 lakh per month – which is a hike of 12,500 per cent.

Meanwhile, there are reports that the central government employees who have been waiting for higher allowances under the 7th Pay Commission since July last year, will have to wait for three to four months more to get pay bonanza. The central government is likely to delay the payment of the higher allowances as the model code of conduct has been imposed following the assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Goa, Manipur and Uttarakhand. The five state polls will begin on February 4 and the results will be declared on March 11.
