OMJC-JUSTICE NARSHIMA REDDY IN HYDERABD TODAY AT AF STN HAKIMPET (21-9-2016)
Today one man Justice Narshima Reddy Comn, had come to Hyderabad along with Def service reps of Army Navy and AF, at AF Stn Hakimpet.
Wg Cdr Reddy on behalf of AF Assn and Brig Vidyasagar gave presentations.
They were well recd by OMJC.
I had given the point, that the OROP Pension should be taken as on date of 31 Dec 15 and not the OROP pensions worked out in calendar year 2013. Later spoke to the Army rep Col Jasdev Singh, he said this point is being considered and the services are fighting hard for the same.
AF rep was an AVM and Navy a Rear Admiral.
One point the Justice made to in reply of a Veteran Sgt that, Offrs get more MSP.
He said it is the other way round offrs in 6PC had take a cut of Rs 1000, so that JCOs and OR get Rs 2000 MSP, because for offrs it was in lieu of Rank Pay, which would have worked out to Rs 6800/rounded off to Rs 7000/- whereas they accepted Rs 6000/-
He also said that, wherever he went, all officers wanted better deal for JCOs and OR and were even willing to forego their benefits for JCOs ORs. He said we were lucky to have well meaning offrs, all over India and in the Services.
This effectively answered the Sgt, who ended up praising the offrs.
Many Veterans gave their points and were listened to by the Justice, who seemed to be quite pro defence services.
Now one has to see what finally he recommends.
AF Stn H'pet made very good arrangements.
We were heartily welcomed by SNCOs and WOs of the Stn, later on the AOC Hakimpet welcomed us.
A Sunder Rajan.
