  • It is again a matter of great concern how the Dept Of ESM , MOD has been treating the services. The Dept of Pension and personal Welfare Govt of India Issued a letter on revision of Pension for pre 96 pensioners on 30 Jul 2015. For civilians pensioners, including pensioners of MOD executive orders were issued to the CGDA fo payment of arrears within a week and for the defence pensioners the much awaited orders are being after 34 days. What justification the M O D has for this delay.It clearly shows the mind set of people manning the MOD and apathy towards the armed forces.Please change this attitude You have harmed the system quite a bit and and do not harm it more It is in no ones interest.

  • Why did it take more than a month to issue this letter? Does not speak well of the work culture of the MOD. The Railways issued their letter within 24 hours.The Veterans who are affected by this letter took only 11 days to win the 1971 war and help give birth to a new nation and the MOD rewards them with this sort of delay.What a shame.
