=================================================
NOW ---- HERE IS THE STORY 

Put eight monkeys in a room. In the middle of the room is a ladder, leading to a bunch of bananas hanging from a hook on the ceiling.

Each time a monkey tries to climb the ladder, all the monkeys are sprayed with ice water, which makes them miserable. 

Soon enough, whenever a monkey attempts to climb the ladder, all of the other monkeys, not wanting to be sprayed, set upon him and beat him up. 

Soon, none of the eight monkeys ever attempts to climb the ladder.

One of the original monkeys is then removed, and a new monkey is put in the room. 

Seeing the bananas and the ladder, he wonders why none of the other monkeys are doing the obvious. 

But undaunted, he immediately begins to climb the ladder.

All the other monkeys fall upon him and beat him silly. He has no idea why. However, he no longer attempts to climb the ladder.

A second original monkey is removed and replaced. 

The newcomer again attempts to climb the ladder, but all the other monkeys hammer the crap out of him.

This includes the previous new monkey, who, grateful that he’s not on the receiving end this time, participates in the beating because all the other monkeys are doing it. 

However, he has no idea why he’s attacking the new monkey.

One by one, all the original monkeys are replaced. 

Eight new monkeys are now in the room. 

None of them have ever been sprayed by ice water.

None of them attempt to climb the ladder. 

All of them will enthusiastically beat up any new monkey who tries, without having any idea why.

And that, friends, is how traditions, religions 

and systems get established and followed.

7th Pay Commission report on revised allowances: Announcement likely after April 12 (FURTHER DELAY FOR FOR ARMED FORCES?)

March 30, 2017 6:31 AM

Revised allowances including house rent allowance (HRA) will likely be announced for the central government staff after the ongoing Budget session of Parliament is over on April 12.


Revised allowances including house rent allowance (HRA) will likely be announced for the central government staff after the ongoing Budget session of Parliament is over on April 12. The finance secretary-led panel, which is giving final touches to the reworked allowances based on the 7th pay panel’s recommendations, will hold its final meeting shortly, sources told FE. The panel met for over three hours on Wednesday to deliberate on the subject. “Decisions are broadly taken on allowances pending a final review. But these will be announced only after current Budget session ends on April 12 to avoid any controversy,” another source said. In the case of the employees in metro cities, the panel was considering to make HRA a little more generous than the CPC’s award. Taking note of employees’ representations, the finance secretary-led panel was looking at HRA of 30% of basic pay for those in cities with a population of over 5 million, against 24% recommended by CPC. In the Sixth CPC award period (2006-2015), HRA was 30% for these cities. HRA accounts for about 60% of the total allowances bill.
The secretaries’ panel is reviewing the commission’s recommendations pertaining to allowances including rationalisation of some 196 existing benefits. The pay panel has suggested the abolition of 52 benefits and merger of 36 with existing ones to end their separate identities. The financial implication of revised allowances would be broadly in line with the CPC’s estimate of around R29,300 crore (including for the railways) in the first year. While the revised pay and pension was implemented from January 1, 2016, allowances will be implemented prospectively. The delayed implementation of allowances have saved the government nearly R33,000 crore in 15 months.
With just R4,500 crore additional allocation in the Budget (excluding armed forces for which no separate data is usually provided) for allowances and assuming R7,600 crore expenditure would be borne by the railways, the additional allocation required from the general Budget could be around R15,000 crore in 2017-18. “This additional requirement could be met largely from savings from allocations made to various departments for the year,” a third source said. The Union Budget size is R21.47 lakh crore for next fiscal year.
On June 29, 2016, the government accepted the pay- and pension-related recommendations of CPC for over 10 million central government staffers and pensioners, entailing additional cost of R84,933 crore in 2016-17. In the 2017-18 Budget, the government has not explicitly provided for additional costs to be incurred after implementation of the revised allowances under CPC. The Centre’s allowance expenditure is pegged at R69,222 crore (excluding defence) in FY18, just 7% higher than R64,677 crore in FY17, factoring in business-as-usual growth in expenditure.
Many government employees see the formation of the secretary panel itself as a delaying tactic. The delay in implementation has helped the government save on additional costs towards allowances in 2016-17 and redeployed the resources to give a spending boost of R36,000 crore to various programmes. Unlike pay and pension, allowances are paid prospectively. Salary revision took effect from January 1, 2016. The pay panel had given an overall 23.55% increase in pay, allowances and pensions, including 16% pay rise, 63% surge in allowances and 23.6% increase in pension.

OROP IS ONE TIME INCREASE IN PENSION (OTIP) : WORK SHEET OF NON IMPLEMENTATION OF OROP : IESM

    29 Mar 2017

WORK SHEET OF NON IMPLEMENTATION OF OROP

Dear Veterans,
1.       The Govt has launched a sustained campaign that OROP has been implemented.  However, the truth is, what the Govt has implemented is NOT repeat NOT OROP but only one time increase in Pension.
2.      The Govt has also changed the approved Definition of OROP which kills the very soul of OROP.
3.      Work Sheet of Non Implementation of OROP is enclosed for your information and wide circulation.
4.      The lowest rank of Defence Personnel ie “Sepoy” is getting Rs 4296 PM/-  less with the diluted OROP than what he should get if Actual OROP is implemented.
5.       Similarly, a widow of a Sepoy is getting Rs 2578 PM/- less.  The members of Defence Family should join to work for the implementation of Actual OROP.

            With regards,   
          Yours Sincerely,
          Maj Gen Satbir Singh, SM (Retd)                                                                       
Advisor United Front of Ex Servicemen Jantar Mantar &                
Chairman Indian Ex-Servicemen Movement (IESM)                                                                                                      
Mobile: 9312404269, 01244110570                                                    
================================================
One Rank One Pension was approved by UPA Govt in budget dated 17 Feb 14 and then by NDA Govt in their budget dated 10 Jun 14. UPA Government issued an executive order dated 26 Feb 14 for the implementation of OROP dues to veterans at the earliest. This was never implemented by the MOD nor a demand note was ever raised. The approved definition of OROP by two Governments is given below.

Definition of OROP as per Govt Executive Order of 26 Feb 2014.

One Rank One Pension (OROP) implies that uniform pension be paid to the Armed Forces Personnel retiring in the same rankwith the same length of service irrespective of their date of retirement and any future enhancement in the rates of pension to beautomatically passed on to the past pensioners. This implies bridging the gap between the rate of pension of the current pensioners and the past pensioners, and also future enhancements in the rate of pension to be automatically passed on to the past pensioners.

Govt Changed Definition of OROP which kills the Soul of OROP.

Again, another attempt has been made to change/ distort the definition of OROP in GOI notification dated 7 Nov 15. OROP definition given in 7 Nov letter is reproduced below.

One Rank One Pension (OROP) implies that uniform pension be paid to the Defence Forces Personnel retiring in the same rank with the same length of service, regardless of their date of retirement, which implies bridging the gap between the rate of pension of the current pensioners and the past pensioners at periodic intervals.

Example to Prove that what Govt has implemented is not OROP.

1.  85% strength of Defence Forces consists of other Ranks ie From Sepoy to Havildar. Let us  take example of a Sepoy of ‘Y’ Group with 17 years of Service who retired prior to implementation of OROP with effect from 01 July 2014 and compare his pension with the same Class of Sepoy who retired after 01 Jan 2016 the effective date of 7th CPC, the working of pension is as under:-

(a)
OROP basic Pension of Sepoy who retired prior to implementation of OROP as per 6th CPC = Rs 6665 / per month.

(b)
DA 125%                                =      Rs 8331/-

(c)
Total Pension                          =  Rs 14996/ per month

(d)
His Pension of 7th CPC as per existing order with effect from 01 Jan 2016. =  6665  x  2.57+2% D = 17129+2 % DA                 = 17129+342.58 = Rs 17462 / per month

(e)
Pension of Sepoy of the same class who retired after the Govt implementation of OROP  after 01 Jan 2016 as per 7th CPC
          =  Rs 8300 x 2.57 + 2% DA =  Rs 21331 + 2% DA = Rs 21331 + Rs 427 = Rs 21758/- per month 

(f)
The difference  in Pension of the same class of Sepoy 
 = Rs 21758 – 17462 = Rs 4296/- per month.

(g)
The gap in pension of the same class is Rs 4296=per month. How this can be OROP, since OROP means same pension of the same rank of Defence Veterans irrespective  of the Date of Retirement.


Similarly a Widow of Sepoy of the same class will get Rs 2578/- less per month.

  
2.     Hence what the Govt has implemented is not OROP but one time increase in Pensions.

3.    It is also pertinent to mention that the changed definition will not be  OROP.  The original definition needs to be restored.

Dear Veteran, Did you ever notice? -To prove the name of your wife, How you runs from office to office - A POEM BY SGT PKTUTEJA, AIR VETERAN”


Dear  Veteran , Did you ever notice ?//

To prove the name of your wife,

How a Veteran runs from office to office//

A women inherits the suffix with her name,

So called “The Gotra”  of her  in  laws//

But the system so called “Rules &Regulations “,

Why does that have in it,  many  flaws?//

That is ancient culture of the Indian society//

Why so many  hurdles, for  her new name then,

in the  veteran’s   documentary?//

After the  demise  of  the  veteran ,

the   lady ,  so called  “Veer  Nari”.

For her own pension,

She runs  from  one  pillar to another,

from  one  court to  the other.

and lives with all that kind of tension.

And still be called “A Veer Nari”//

That is the real treagdy,

being   faced  by  that so called “Veer Nari”//

Has not the  time  come  for a change?

Does not the  system  now need a real change ?

Then and only  then,


She shall  proudly be called a “ Veer Nari”//
