Please do not rely on your personal capacity to donate funds for the noble cause “Justice for Defence Services”, but do request your close relatives and friends also to donate.

A large number of veterans are very well to do. God has been kind to you – it is time for you to show your big heart to all ESM be kind to them.
I am sure many of you are also capable of donating large sums every month to IESM.

I promise to Chairman IESM to collect between Rs 10,000 to Rs 15,000 as donations from my close relatives and friends.

A large number of members of “Report My Signal” are still not member of IESM. I appeal to you all to come forward and become members of IESM.
The necessary membership form and instructions are attached. Please become member and donate generously to IESM.

Respected Veterans,
Jai Hind.
IESM is not an organization or an Association which has come about or created or formed under ordinary circumstances. It has come about as a result of popular upsurge on account of gross injustice to the personnel of the Defence Services and Ex-Servicemen, on announcement of the 6th Central Pay Commission, in March 2008.
The first All India Military Veterans Meet was held at NOIDA on 13 Aug 2008. And it was in that meeting that Veterans starting with Lt Gen Raj Kadyan and other founder members of the IESM were introduced and the august gathering of over 100 Veterans were requested to raise their hands to ratify their appointment as Members of the Core Committee of IESM; and thus was born IESM. That first All India Military Veterans Meet at NOIDA on 13 Aug 2008 was a big success on account of the untiring efforts by all the Veteran Officers comprising the present IESM Governing Body. My salute to them.
An Appeal and A Request.
Maj Gen PK Renjen, the Treasurer of IESM brought out recently, during the IESM Governing Body Meet on 31 Jan 2010, that the financial position of IESM is in tremendous distress; so much so, that, we hardly have money to fund our events & activities. For all those who have not known Maj Gen PK Renjen, I would like to say that Maj Gen PK Renjen, (ex-GOC 3 Mtn Div), is an epitome of Honesty, Integrity & Humility. I salute him for his dedication & commitment to the cause. As Treasurer of IESM he has done a remarkable job; and, I hold him in great esteem & regard.
As per rules, whatever money the IESM received by way of Membership Fees, has been invested as “Fixed Deposit’ in the Bank; and, it is only the “Interest Amount” that accrues out of the ‘Fixed Deposit’ that can be utilized for funding various events & activities of IESM, viz. printing of posters, organizing Ex-Servicemen Rallies, etc. Needless to say that the amount that accrues as interest is very small and is NOT adequate to fund IESM events & activities. Though no doubt, a few of our Veterans* have been very kind & gracious to donate money to IESM for funding IESM events & activities; not much is left to carry on our Movement. [* When we talk of Donations, the first name that comes to my mind is that of Veteran Cdr KK Punchhi, who residing in Canada, donated Rs. 50,000; and, the second one is, Veteran Gp Capt Vidhyadhar, residing in Australia, donated Rs. 22,500. And of course, there are quite a few Veterans who have donated amounts ranging from Rs. 5,000 to Rs. 10,000. I must say, indeed kind & gracious of them].
Money is required to sustain any Movement and IESM is no exception. WE must realize that Corporate Houses are not inclined to donate money to IESM as they have nothing to gain. Money to sustain IESM will have to perforce come from Veterans themselves, especially the Retired Officers. I say, WE OWE IT TO OUR MEN, whom we had the privilege to command while in service. And, I for one believe that, ‘An Officer’s responsibility towards his men does NOT end with his retirement; it is a lifelong commitment’.

The Indian Ex-Servicemen Movement, is a crusade, committed to fight for the rights of Ex-Servicemen and our foremost demand is that Govt. grant MILITARY PENSION by way of One Rank, One Pension.
IESM faces a real danger of Ex-Servicemen losing faith in the Movement, in case WE do not sustain a visible proactive Movement calibrated to achieve ‘One Rank, One Pension’ by the end of 2010.
The next big event that is being planned is an Ex-Servicemen Rally at Jantar Mantar, Delhi, on Sunday, 14 March 2010, where at, a Memorandum addressed to the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India shall be signed in Blood. Ex-Servicemen Rallies are also being planned, all over the Country, on Sunday, 14 March 2010, where too, the Memorandum addressed to the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India shall be signed in Blood. Please scroll down to read the DRAFT Memorandum addressed to the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India.
In the light of above, I request and appeal to you Sirs, to PLEASE DONATE A SUM OF RS. 1000 TO THE IESM, in order to carry our Movement forward and to fund our events & activities. Veterans desirous of donating larger amounts are most welcome.
IESM is a registered body, bearing Registration No. DR/GGN/179 (2008-09); and, Donations to IESM are exempt from Income Tax under the Provisions of Sec 80 G of the Income Tax Act.
