Ex-servicemen talk to Antony to resolve pension anomalies – One rank one pension
Ex-servicemen of Lucknow have approached defence minister AK Antony with their demand to rectify anomalies in their pension policies. Retired soldiers of the army, navy and air force, under the pan India banner — Indian Ex-servicemen Movement (IESM) — have, in a letter to the minister, pointed out a “serious lacuna’’ that the ministry of defence (MoD) has committed while formulating the pension guidelines for retired personnel.
“On completing 21 years of service, a major rank officer gets a pension higher than a lieutenant colonel, colonel, brigadier or a major general,” said wing commander (retd) AK Sahai, who is also the Lucknow convener of IESM.
