Government Orders on Cabinet Decision on Pensionary Benefits to Ex-Servicemen to be Issued Next Month


Describing the twin tasks of improving the pensionary and medical benefits for ex-servicemen as ‘subjects of prime concern’ and ‘as an ongoing process’, the Defence Minister Shri AK Antony today announced that the orders authorizing payment to ex-servicemen and their families accruing from the recent cabinet decisions, hiking pension and other benefits amounting to nearly Rs.2300 crores per annum, would be issued next month.

Addressing a meeting of the Consultative Committee attached to his Ministry, here, Shri Antony said this is the third time in the last four years that the Government have systematically improved the post-retirement benefits for ex-servicemen.

Outlining the slew of measures taken by the MoD for improving the health care benefits of ex-servicemen, Shri Antony said the Government has been trying to expand the delivery mechanism and simplify procedures so that the ex-servicemen, who have given their best years of life for the security of the nation, get the required medical benefits without hassles.

He said under the Ex-servicemen Contributory Health Scheme (ECHS), which has been in operation since April 2003, 227 polyclinics were initially approved by the Government. In 2010, another 199 polyclinics were sanctioned by the Government out of which 99 polyclinics have become functional and 100 polyclinics are under various stages of operationalization. The scheme is presently been implemented to 326 functional polyclinics. At present, the scheme has over 41 lakh beneficiaries including 13 lakh ex-servicemen and over 28 lakh dependents. The reach and coverage of the scheme is evident from the fact that in 2011-12, 90 lakh patients were attended to at the polyclinics. Shri Antony expressed confidence that with the commissioning of the remaining polyclinics the bulk of the ex-servicemen population throughout the country would be covered by the scheme.

Shri Antony said there is still a long way to go as presently, ECHS facilities are available only in 339 districts out of a total of 659 in the country. The delivery of medicare at polyclinics is also hampered by the shortage of staff and non-availability of the prescribed medicines.

Taking part in the discussion, the Members of Parliament urged the Government to prepare a roadmap to ensure that medical facilities are available to ex-servicemen in every district of the country. They also called for greater transparency in the process. Some Members pointed out that there is inordinate delay in settling the bills of private hospitals which should be ameliorated through technological means. Taking note of the rapid growth of healthcare facilities in the private sector in recent years and the innovative steps taken by some organizations and hospitals, the Members suggested that the Government should adopt the best practices readily available outside the government sector rather than handling the situation in a conservative fashion which is neither efficient nor cost-effective.

Replying to some of the queries of the Members, the Minister of State for Defence Shri Jitendra Singh said the government is veering towards a ‘dashboard approach’ so that the healthcare mechanisms can be monitored online on a day-to-day basis by the administrators. He said the government’s efforts will always be to put a smile on the face of the ex-servicemen because they deserve it.

Members of Parliament who attended the meeting included Shri Navin Jindal, Shri GajananDharmshi Babar, Shri SS Ramasubbu, Shri Gopal Singh Shekhawat, Shri Suresh Kalmadi, Shri Harsh Vardhan, Shri Kailkesh N. Singh Deo, Shri Sultan Ahmed, Shri Ram Chandra Khuntia, DrMahendra Prasad, Shri Ishwarlal Jain, Smt. AmbikaSoni and Shri PiyushGoyal.

The Defence Secretary Shri Shashikant Sharma, Secretary Department of Defence Production Shri RK Mathur, Secretary Ex-Servicemen’s Welfare Shri Vijay Chibber, Secretary Defence Finance Smt. PritiMohantyand other officials of the Ministry of Defence also attended the meeting.

Sir, Through this site I want to bring forward to your notice of some EXSM bretherns plight. The EX Servicemen joined in banks in clerical cadre can have Pay Protection as per Govt rule. The correct and latest order regarding pay protection of EXSM from DOPT is clarified in “No. 3/19/2009-Estt. (Pay II) Dated 5th Apr 2010” OM pertaining Re-employed EXSM, which can be easily found in DOPT site or can be googled. As long as EXSM employed in Banks are concerned, DA on pension has to be surrendered , if they are opting for pay protection. This can be further clarified in PCDA site, “http://pcdapension.nic.in/pp/expectation.htm”. Many Banks though allowing pay protection to EXSM employees, but deduction of DA on pension is not ensured. Despite clear instructions form PCDA, RBI, some EXSM employees hide or supress the facts from their PDAs. This leads to confusion among other EXSM employees whether to forgo DA on pension or put false life certificates. Some question the module of recovering excess amounts already received by them as DA on pension and refrain others that nothing will happen and proclaim PCDA or Banks can not recover the already paid amounts .All banks are requested to provide data on the number of EXSM employed with them and whether their DA on pension has been surrendered to concerned Dept , if they have been pay protected , has been asked through RTI. With a conservative estimate the loss to exchequer may well exceed Rs 50-130 crores.

Have u got reply of your RTI? I have come to know that RBI has ensured that it will fix Ex-SM pay only when they produce proof from PDA that their DA is being deducted, wef the date this comes into effect but other banks are not following any systems. You can find Ex-SM in same bank, even in same zone, where one's DA is getting deducted and other one is enjoying DA on pension as well as salary. I came to know through a friend abt an Ex-SM whose DA on pension got deducted, he approached the dealing clerk in HR who also happened to be Ex-SM and was taking DA on pension and salary with pay protection both. He told the "sufferer" - "nobody deducted mine but I am following rules" jogindersansanwal@gmail.com

i would like to bring to your notice that many officers in the department of sainik welfare of maharashtra, including some top functionaries, including the Director, are drawing DA on their pension. One officer was operating a Petrol Pump under DGR also. This needs a thorough investigation especially the DA on pension.

Sadly there is no forum where we can forward such complains. Some people Ex-SM are earning a bad name for whole community. As per DoPT orders, MSP is not included in pay for the purpose of pay protection, however it is to be included in pension. But neither the employer are following rules nor the beneficiary wants to disclose facts.
