Our case on the Barkha Dutt program on NDTV was well presented.
One point though; however strongly we may feel on the 'honour' and sentimental reasons, we need to be hard headed also. For example, issue of retirement age was taken up but not forcefully enough.
It is not only OR but JCOs and specially officers also retire at early age not because they are not good enough but because pyramid is very steep due to operational reasons, structure etc.
We could work out statistics to show how it affects their pension vis a vis the civilians.
I hope we will get what we deserve viz OROP.
