Pak army chief advises Nawaz Sharif to quit, media reports claim

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Indian Military Veterans
ISLAMABAD: Fresh controversy erupted after Pakistan's powerful army chief on Monday met PM Nawaz Sharif to discuss ways to resolve the deepening political crisis with media reports claiming that the embattled Prime Minister was advised to step down during the meeting. 

After TV channels reported that Army chief General Raheel Sharif has advised Prime Minister Sharif to step down, both the government and military issued separate denials, dismissing the claims as "baseless". 

Duniya TV reported that Gen Sharif has asked the PM Sharif to resign for a temporary three-month period as demanded by protesters to let an independent commission probe alleged rigging in last year's general election.

Pension for soldier’s widow after 12 yrs

Pension for soldier’s widow after 12 yrs 
Saurabh Malik
Tribune News Service
Chandigarh, August 31
More than four months after the Punjab and Haryana High Court declared that “a false and incorrect stand” was taken during judicial proceedings to deny payback to a soldier’s widow and “such deception” amounted to “perjury”, special family pension and other benefits have finally been released to her.
A Division Bench has also accepted the explanation furnished by Major BS Verma, issued notice through Ministry of Defence. He was, on a previous date of hearing, asked to explain his stand by filing an affidavit. Posted earlier as Senior Record Officer at Pune, Major Verma had filed a written statement in the case.
In its previous order, the High Court had asserted that the case shocked its “judicial conscience”. The observation came nearly 12 years after Naik Mohammed Sabir Hussain died in an accident with a “civilian” Maruti car.
After recording evidence, the Court of Inquiry expressed opinion that the victim was on “bona fide military duty” when the accident occurred. The report was subsequently accepted by Brigadier Station Commander. He too concluded that the death was attributable to bona fide military duty.
But the respondents, with “mala fide” intentions referred to the deposition of a witness, and not the inquiry’s conclusion, to deny his widow Akhtari Khatun special family pension.
As her initial petition against the denial was taken up by a Single Judge, a written statement was filed under Major Verma’s signatures. The respondents took the stand that the soldier had gone to the market to purchase ration for himself, and not for the unit. As such, special family pension could not be granted. The petition was then dismissed by the Single Judge on the basis of the statement.
As the case came up for resumed hearing before the Bench of Justice Hemant Gupta and Justice Kuldip, counsel for the Union of India produced photocopies of documents dated August 19 to show that special family pension had been sanctioned. The counsel added directions had been issued for release of payments.

CAN BJP AFFORD TO ANNOY EX-SERVICEMEN

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Indian Military Veterans


For the last ten years, BJP had been attempting to convince all sections of the society that BJP is a party with a difference and will enforce rule of law as and when given a chance. BJP had also been communicating that the party will ensure a stronger military. The party had promised that they will genuinely look after the welfare of ESM and will not provide mere lip service.
BJP had needed the large untapped section of society of serving soldiers and ex-servicemen to vote for them. Since Independence serving soldier had been denied fundamental right of franchise. A serving soldier could not vote in his service career. So-called facility of postal ballot never reached the units and some postal ballots which were sent by units could never reach the constituency before counting. Soldiers have now been permitted to vote on their place of posting by the Election Commission of India.
Soldiers and ex-servicemen were not happy with the Governments since independence as their status in the society was continuously downgraded by the Government since Independence. Their basic needs were also overlooked by the Government.

Jan Dhan Yojana: Banks to get ‘handsome’ compensation

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Indian Military Veterans
The commission payable to banks under the DBT scheme launched under UPA rule is 1% of the total DBT amount transferred. (PTI)
Banks and their banking correspondents (BC) who provide basic services under the Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana (PMJDY) will be compensated “handsomely", said government sources.
The commission payable to banks (which then pass on the share to BCs) under the Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) scheme launched under UPA rule is 1% of the total DBT amount transferred.
While there was a plan to raise this to 2% of the “actual amount transferred through BCs", under the new PMJDY the commission could be even higher, the sources indicated.
Also, they added, the finance ministry would assess the performance of each Public Sector Bank in implementing the PMJDY and consider it as one of the main parameters while capitalising them.
PMJDY is a comprehensive financial inclusion programme targeting opening of 7.5 crore new accounts within five months with insurance and pension facilities. Around 1.84 crore accounts (1.2 crore in rural areas and 64 lakh in urban) have been opened so far.
BCs are employed in places where banks do not have branches. The target under PMJDY is for banks to have an additional 50,000 BCs, in addition to 7,000 more branches and 20,000 new ATMs.
Also, to make the dormant accounts (estimated at around 5 crore) active, the government will soon announce that dormant accounts holders, if found eligible, will get subsidies and other payments related to DBT as well as the National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme directly into their accounts if these accounts are activated. Such account holders will also get accident insurance worth R1 lakh, overdraft of up to R5,000 and life insurance of R30,000.
On the accident insurance cover of R1 lakh being offered to new account holders, officials said it comes with the condition that before making the claim, the holder should have used his/her account during the 45 days prior to the claim date. However, officials are considering if some exceptions can be made to this rule.
On setting up of the credit guarantee fund to cover defaults of the overdraft facility of up to R5,000, the sources said the corpus of the fund is likely to be R1,000 crore and soon a cabinet note would be moved for the purpose by the department of financial services.
The overdraft facility is only for Aadhaar-enabled accounts after they have been operated satisfactorily for six months. The fund will be set up only after August 2015. The allocation for the fund will be in the supplementary demands for grants or in next year's Budget. Banks have been told to assess the creditworthiness of people before opening accounts so that they do not misuse the overdraft facility.
Banks have also been asked to link new accounts to the Aadhaar card/number, take self-declaration on creditworthiness and other details and make sure that accounts are active. Wrong self-declaration can lead to legal action.
