Subject: IESM MEMORANDUM RE OROP + IESM UPDATE - Maj Gen Satbir Singh
Dear Brig Kamboj Sir,
The photographs of so many memebers of IESM were very encouraging and depicted their undying spirit towards a very important and vital national cause of eradication of corruption. I am putting up a few selected ones in my blog as well. Hats off to Maj Gen PK Renjen and his family. Sir, your own photograph in the end of it all takes the cake. Hats off to you also, for your indomitable spirit in the service of the nation and the defence veterans. (Please do not edit expression of my humble gratitude toward you. I have saved youir photograph for future use.
Incidentally, following three comments have been received on my blog "India of My Dreams" at the link below. http://www.indiamydreamland.blogspot.com/. May I request you to convey them to the person concerned so that, if felt and considered beneficial for officers of these categories, the gist could be conveyed as a corrigendum to the Petition sent for OROP from IESM side. It may help some officers if their argument appeals to the chairman.

If the leaders of the IESM have not incorporated the following aspect in that petition ,u r requested to do the needful-
consequent to abolition of 2/Lt rk and re-designation of appts of coy and unit cdrs to rks of Lt Col and Col ,there is need to appropriate equation of past pensioners with present rks in that OROP concept and approach.that is ,earlier Lt to Capt, Capt to Maj, Maj to Lt Col and Lt Col to Col . If services HQ are not doing anything about it and if IESM also overlooks this aspect ,we would back to same situation of monumental omission/blunder.
I did send some e mails on this aspect to u and others, but i dont find this aspect in these projections. FUNDAMENTAL,THOSE UNIT CDRS OF RK OF LT COL WHO FOUGHT THE WARS OF 1947,1762,1965 &1971 AND DEFENDED THIS COUNTRY AND GIVEN ALL THE NAME AND FAME TO DEFENSE SERVICES CANNOT BE SIMPLY OVERLOOKED BY PRESENT LOT WHO ARE BASKING IN ALL THAT GLORY AND FAME.Similarly,earlier platoon and coy cdrs of rk of Capt &Maj must be equated to present rks of Platoon &coy cdrs of rk of Maj and Lt Col. without this aspect the presentation would reflect omission and bias.please therefore,introspect and modify.
kindly , forward this contention to that special petition committee"

the core and fundamental issue is pay fixing done by all those involved in that act.it is worse than match fixing in sports& games ,particularly in cricket and other fixing acts in the country.
THE FUNDAMENTAL RULE AND PRINCIPLE OF INTEGRATED PAY SCALE , THAT INTEGRATED PAY IS PROPORTIONAL TO LENGTH OF SERVICE FOR ALL OFFICERS UP TO RANK OF BRIG HAS BEEN SHAMELESSLY ABUSED AND VIOLATED BY THOSE WHO DESIGNED AND DEVISED THE FIXATION FORMULA AND PRINTED IN THAT SAI 1987. THAT SHARMA JI WHO WAS IN THAT GROUP CALLED PC CELL WAS THE ARCHITECT AND DESIGNER . HE WAS EVEN BOASTING OF HIS GREAT SKILL OF ADMINISTRATIVE ACTION TO ENSURE THAT A JUNIOR RK OFFICER WITH 30 YRS OF SVC GOT LESS INTEGRATED PAY THAN AN OFFICER OF HIGHER RK WITH 15 YRS OF SVC.THAT WAS THE GENESIS OF THE PROBLEM CREATED/ABETTED BY AG BR.MANUMENTAL -HIMALAYAN BLUNDER AND CRIME.THE RESULT IS GENERATIONS ARE ADVERSELY EFFECTED. THAT SHARMA JI RETIRED AS ARMY CDR.THAT BLUNDER COULD NOT BE RECTIFIED OR CORRECTED BY SO MUCH OF STRUGGLE ,SACRIFICES AND EFFORT.
ALL THOSE WHO WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT BLUNDER ARE LIVING AND AROUND US.WHAT A IRONY ?.

"a r ganga has left a new comment on your post "4th Pay Commission Rank Pay Anomaly: GOI Again Mov...":
very good analysis with the facts highlighted.one very important and very relevant point is over looked -
a. the rks of officers of past are to be read/equated with present rks , with abolition of 2/Lt rk and and re-designation of rks of appts company commander and unit cdr. , namely- former Lt Col to Col, Maj to Lt Col,Capt to Maj,Lt to Capt.
b. these changes have been introduced since 1980. if these are not suitably modified/equated, there will be another monumental blunder and grave injustice to past pensioners. as it appears AHQ and these veteran org are simply overlooking this as they are not personally effected i only hope these people at the forefront of the movement take notice and accordingly incorporate in their OROP presentations , re-presentations and agitations.
i request all those who read this to express this in various forums.

In future also I would keep sending similar comments to you for further dissemination. I am sure you would convey them to the appropriate persons of the Governing Body.
With kind regards
Col LK Anand (Retd).
