A delegation of “Bharat Pensioners’ Samaj” (BPS), the largest and oldest organization of Pensioners in India met Dr Jitendra Singh, Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Science & Technology and Earth Sciences, Minister of State in Prime Minister`s Office (PMO), Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions, Space and Atomic Energy, here today. The delegation handed over a cheque as donation to the Prime Minister’s National Relief Fund (PMNRF) in the aid of flood victims of Jammu & Kashmir and also dispatched two trucks full of relief material including ration and clothes to Jammu & Kashmir.

Acknowledging the contribution made by the Pensioners’ Association, Dr. Jitendra Singh said that even though the money and material contributed by them were going to be of immense help in carrying out the relief work, but more than that, it is the symbolic gesture of these elder retired officials, which is like a blessing for all of us who are engaged in pulling Jammu & Kashmir out of this ordeal.

Expressing solidarity with the people of Jammu & Kashmir in their hour of distress, Secretary General of BPS, Shri S.C. Maheshwari informed Dr. Jitendra Singh that their organization is a conglomerate of 648 organizations of pensioners from different departments with branches spread all over India and in the days to come, more donations for Jammu & Kashmir relief will be handed over on behalf of these different groups of pensioners.

Shri Maheshwari said that BPS has also launched a campaign for organ donation and wherever needed in the rescue and relief of flood victims in Jammu & Kashmir, they would be ready to help medically also.

Indian Military Veterans
Acceptance of certificates/qualifications awarded by various Boards of School Education in India for the purpose of employment on the railways.
Clarification has been received from nodal Ministry/Department of Government of India, viz, Department of Personnel & Training (DOP&T) and M/o Human Resource Development (MHRD) stating that COBSE (Council of Board of School Education in India), an Association of National & State School Boards, is responsible for verifying genuineness/ recognition of School Education Boards in India. It grants membership to Boards/Institutes that are set up by an Act of Parliament or State Legislature or an executive order of the Central/State Governments and follow National Curriculum Framework.
The certificates issued by its member Boards are equivalent to any other board across the country. Accordingly, the matter has been examined and it has been decided by the Board that zonal railways need not approach this Ministry seeking such clarification regarding acceptance or otherwise of certificates/qualification obtained from various Boards of School Education in India and instead, refer to official website of COBSE i.e. www.cobse.org which contain list of Boards of School Education which are Member Boards of COBSE.
Thus certificates/ qualification obtained from all such institutions borne on the aforesaid list will be acceptable for the purpose of employment on the railways, from the date on which the said institution has been accorded membership by COBSE, if they were not recognized earlier by any competent authority. This date of acceptability of certificate may be obtained by approaching COBSE directly and a copy of clarification thus obtained may also be endorsed to this Ministry for information & record.

Enforce ‘One Rank One Pension', Say Ex-Servicemen

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Indian Military Veterans
KOCHI: Their demand for ‘One Rank One Pension’ started in 1983. Even after 30 years, the plea of ex-servicemen, the first to raise such a demand, is falling on deaf ears, when the judges, MPs, MLAs, bureaucrats and many others receive pensions based on their rank.
The former UPA Government has thrice earmarked fund in its budget for ‘One Rank One Pension’ scheme. But the ex-servicemen, who once served the country, are yet to get their due. Left with no other alternative, ex-servicemen across the country have decided to go for hunger strike on Wednesday.
“After the sixth Pay Commission in 2006, the Army personnel who retired a day before it and after it with the same rank get a pension with wide gap. Those who retire early gets a considerably lower pension than those who retire recently. It has been 30 years, since we had requested them to bridge the gap,” said  Pratapan, secretary, National Ex-servicemen Co-ordination Committee, Ernakulam.
Many committees constituted to study the subject were also in their favour of the ex-servicemen. In 2009, the UPA government allocated Rs 2,144 crores in the budget for the scheme. In 2012, they allocated Rs 2,300 and finally in 2014, the Central Government set aside Rs 500 crore. The then Defence Minister A K Antony said the ‘One rank one pension’ scheme would be implemented from April 1, 2014. 
The K M Chandrashekar committee also submitted a report in favour of ex-service men. “But the officials conveniently brushed aside the directive by the then Defence Minister aside. The officials of the Ex-servicemen Welfare Department at Delhi is throttling every efforts taken in this regard,” he said. The Modi Government has now allotted Rs 1,500 crore for it. But various other committees state that it needs around Rs 3500 to implement the scheme.
