 I WONDER : 1992 BATCH ARMY = COLONEL ONLY

Lalit  Das of 1992 batch is being promoted to the rank of IG in Orissa.

UPA REPORT CARD : Welfare of ex-servicemen & serving defence service personnel


 PIB

I WONDER : 
1.   I COULDN'T UNDERSTAND HOW PARA 42 AND 43 IS RELATED TO DEFENCE !!
2.   PARA 37: RESETTLEMENT COURSES WERE ALWAYS THERE !!!!!
3.   PARA 38: THERE IS MORE MONEY SANCTIONED PER INDIVIDUAL IN CGHS AS COMPARED TO ECHS. TEETHING ADM PROBLEMS ARE OVER AND ABOVE THIS FACT.
4.   PARA 39: OROP IS STILL A DISTANT DREAM. COMMITTEE OF SECY THEN GOM THEN PM COULD ONLY PARTIALLY HELP THE SOLDIERS. HIGH LEVEL COMMITTEE (HLC) NO WHERE IN SIGHT. AFTER LOOSING CASE ON RANK PAY IN SUPREME COURT GOVT APPEALS FOR RE-LOOK ON DECISION SIGHTING ADM/FINANCIAL PROBLEMS. EXTENDING BENEFITS OF RANK PAY CASE TO 6TH CPC APPEARS DIFFICULT.  SETTING UP OF EX-SERVICEMAN COMMISSION IS OUT OF SIGHT.  AFT IS A WELCOME STEP FOR SURE.
5.   PARA 40:  WAS THERE EARLIER TOO. INDIAN AIRLINE IS ONLY THERE TO FLY YOU ALONG WITH ALL THEIR DIFFICULTIES !!!!
6.   PARA 41:  WELCOME STEP THOUGH I DONT KNOW THE DETAILS.
7.   PARA 42 & 43: TOO TECHNICAL FOR ME TO UNDERSTAND :)

37)   It is a constant endeavour of the UPA government to provide suitable employment for ex-servicemen as also to impart necessary training to prepare them to take on new assignments/jobs. This has enabled more than 50000 ex-servicemen to obtain employment during 2009-10.

38)   The health coverage for the ex-servicemen has been widened by empanelling more civil hospitals and diagnostic centers. Disabled ex-servicemen are now entitled to get prosthetic aid from an additional 149 Central Government Health Scheme empanelled centres apart from the Artificial Limb Centre, Pune. The membership of Ex-Servicemen Contributory Health Scheme (ECHS) has crossed 30 lakhs.

39)   A committee was set up to give specific recommendations for the welfare of defence service personnel and pensioners. The recommendations were accepted by the UPA government and this is likely to benefit about 12 lakh personnel. An Armed Forces Tribunal has been established to provide an appellate forum to the aggrieved personnel.

40)   To boost the morale of troops, who are posted in far flung border areas and face difficult topographic and climatic conditions, chartering of civil flights has been sanctioned for their faster movement during leave.

41)   Prime Minister's Scholarship Scheme was started under the aegis of the National Defence Fund. Under the scheme, scholarships are provided every year to wards of retired personnel and martyrs below officer rank of armed and para-military forces. In 2009-10, scholarships have been granted to 4525 students amounting to Rs.7.40 crore.

42)   It has been decided to set up a National Social Security Fund for workers in the unorganized sector like weavers, toddy tappers, rickshaw pullers and bidi workers with an initial allocation of Rs. 1000 crore.

43)   Government has also taken important steps for the benefit of workers in the organised sector. Workmen Compensation Act, 1923 has been amended to enhance the benefits to the workers. Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972 has been amended to raise the limit of maximum gratuity payable from Rs.3.5 lakhs to Rs.10 lakhs. Comprehensive amendments have been made in the Employees State Insurance Act, 1948 to improve the quality of delivery of health care and other benefits being provided to the insured persons in the organized sector and also to enable ESI infrastructure to be used to provide health care to workers in the unorganised sector. Plantations Labour Act, 1951 has been amended for providing safety and occupational health care to plantations workers.
