Chief
of Army Staff General V K Singh hinted at implementation of
one-rank-one-pension in a function at Devsthali (Ballia) on 23rd April and said all information regarding ex-army men would be
collected and their problems would be sorted out.



Addressing
a conference of ex-army men Gen Singh said that all efforts were being made to
implement one-rank-one-pension from the last two years.

Stating
efforts were also being made to remove disparity in the family pension scheme,
the COAS said it may take time, but there would certainly be one or the other
good outcome.

Implementation
of the one-rank-one-pension scheme would involve an expenditure of Rs 3,000
crore, but it was less from the point of the welfare of the soldiers, Singh
said.

 Assuring soldiers after becoming pensioners they would not be forgotten, the
General said both unit and headquarters have been directed to speedily redress
pension related and other complaints of ex-army men.

He said that all details of ex-army men, including that of their families, were
being gathered and they would include whether any family member of an ex-army
man was aggrieved and what his problem was.
