Mr. Shri Tapan Kumar Sen asked whether the Government is aware of the fact that all Central Trade Unions are going to observe countrywide strike on 2 September 2015. He wished to know the steps being taken by Government to meet the demands and requested more details about the demands.

In his response, Mr. Shri Bandaru Dattatreya said that the Government has not received any notice about the strike on 2nd September 2015. However, it is learnt that the Central Trade Unions have proposed strike for that day.

He added that the Central Trade Unions had made representations to the Government with certain demands. These demands include: urgent Governmental measures to contain price rise, unemployment, strict enforcement of basic labour laws, Universal Social Security Cover for all workers, Minimum Wages of Rs. 15,000/- per month, enhanced pension for workers, stoppage of disinvestment in PSUs, stoppage of contractorisation, removal of ceiling on bonus and provident fund, compulsory registration of Trade Unions within 45 days, no amendment to labour laws unilaterally, stopping FDI in Railways, Defence.

The issue of any change in instructions relating to drawal of advance for LTC has to be decided keeping in view all factors including changes made by the Railways, as well as financial implications.

No OROP for paramilitary but other benefits under consideration

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Indian Military VeteransThe Centre today(22/07) ruled out one rank, one pension for personnel of the seven paramilitary forces.
Junior home minister Kiren Rijiju told Parliament today that there was no proposal under consideration to implement the scheme for the seven forces - the CRPF, BSF, CISF, ITBP, SSB, Assam Rifles and the NSG. "There is no proposal under consideration of the ministry on the issue," Rijiju said in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha.

The minister, however, pointed out that the proposals regarding granting of paramilitary service pay and enhancement of casual leave on a par with the army had been received by the government. "The same have been referred to the 7th Central Pay Commission for consideration," he said.
The principle of one rank, one pension for the armed forces has been accepted by the government and is under consideration. Rijiju also said the home ministry had issued instructions to the seven paramilitary forces to incorporate yoga as part of daily physical exercise. "It would be appropriate to incorporate yoga in the daily routine of paramilitary personnel. This will also help the paramilitary forces to beat stress, if any, and keep them physically as well as mentally fit," he said. The home ministry today told Parliament that a total of 228 CRPF jawans had committed suicide in the past seven years. "Yes, according to available data, 228 jawans of the CRPF committed suicide. The causative factors in most of the cases were found to be generally personal and domestic problems, like marital discord, personal enmity, mental illness, depression etc. In few cases the same could be owing to the work related stress," Rijiju said in the written reply.

Naysayers, please relax on the Panel of Experts on Defence Matters!

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Indian Military Veterans


Some disinformation is floating around on the Committee of Experts constituted by the Raksha Mantri. I would like to clear the haze on some issues.

Some myths and their replies:

That the panel has been setup to divert attention from OROP

Totally incorrect. The formation of the panel was first discussed by the Raksha Matri in February, much before the current scenario, and the orders have been issued in July. The two are totally separate issues and do not overlap. The Committee would not be touching upon OROP at all.

That it is an attempt to appease and silence the voices of those who are its Members

Far from the truth. If this is the level of trust expressed for the Members of the Committee, then it is not only unfortunate but it is also clear that persons making such loose statements are not aware of our conviction and sincerity. Also, I think I should make it clear to everyone that all Members are functioning in a purely honorary capacity without any monetary gain and that too after squeezing out time from their respective professions with the aim of service to the society in mind.

The Committee would be handling grievances of soldiers and veterans

Untrue. The Committee is not mandated with such an unwieldy task. The Committee is not supposed to look into individual grievances but is supposed to suggest ways and means to decrease litigation involving the Ministry of Defence as well as the Defence Services and also to increase the level of trust and goodwill amongst the stakeholders in this regard by suggesting broad institutional and progressive changes to the system of redressal of grievances. The Committee would be looking into pending cases related to service matters and pensions and ways to minimize litigation so that the officialdom can focus on areas of core governance.

The panel is recommendatory and its recommendations may never see the light of the day

It is true that the report is recommendatory. All such commissions, expert panels and committees are recommendatory. But keeping in view the fact that it has been constituted by the Raksha Mantri himself and in line with the PM’s focus on governance, it is certainly not going to be an empty formality. Almost all major policy decisions concerning the nation are taken by way of reports of experts and panel inputs. Moreover, it is quite surprising to hear some minority voices of pessimism which say that though it is a good move, it would not be able to achieve its aim. So what should be done? Should such a proactive move taken for the first time since independence be aborted just because a minority feels it would serve no purpose? I would only emphatically like to say that it is much better to have a body of experts viewing these issues with a sharp spotlight so as to iron out the creases than having nothing at all. Also I must place on record that the there has been no pressure on us from any quarter related to our functioning and we are lucky to have such a situation wherein we have been tasked by the apex level of governance to work in a free and independent manner with full support of the political executive without fear or favour.


So naysayers, please relax. The move is in the right direction and a very progressive initiative of the Minister with his full personal involvement under the aegis of the Prime Minister. Let us not spread negativity till the flowers fully bloom.

Aadhaar card may remain non-compulsory, for now

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Indian Military Veterans
Legal Correspondent
New Delhi, July 22
Aadhaar card may continue to remain non-compulsory for quite some time for getting subsidy or official documents as the Supreme Court today said it wanted to send the PILs against the scheme to a Constitution Bench of not less than five judges.
“We are inclined to refer the case to a larger Bench,” a three-member Bench headed by Justice J Chelameswar said accepting the Centre’s plea.
The Bench told senior counsel Shyam Divan, representing one of the PIL petitioners, that he should not have any objection to the move as he had already obtained interim relief through an apex court order asking the Centre and the states not to insist on Aadhaar card for providing subsidies on foodgrain, kerosene and cooking gas, work under the employment guarantee law or documents pertaining to property, marriage and vehicles.
Divan, however, said he wanted to argue against the plea for a larger Bench in great detail in order to convince the apex court. Accepting his plea, it allowed him to continue his contentions.
Arguing for the Centre, Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi had pleaded that sending the matter to a larger Bench was necessary as different SC Benches had delivered conflicting judgments on the status of privacy—whether it was a fundamental right under the Constitution or not.
The PIL petitioners against Aadhaar have pleaded that collection of people’s biometrics such as fingerprints and iris patterns for issuing Aadhaar cards amounted to invasion of  their fundamental right to privacy, requiring constitutional interpretation.
The PILs would, however, be rendered irrelevant if the government managed to get the law on Aadhaar passed in Parliament. At present, the card is issued on the basis of an executive order.

Army recruitment CET set to be outsourced this year

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Indian Military Veterans
Image result for Army recruitment CET set to be outsourced this year
Applications go online on August 6; close on September 22; Interviews between October 6 and 13 at Haveri

T he recruitment in the Indian Army is all set to see a massive change in the coming months. Going online for the registration process for soldiers, junior commissioned officers (JCOs) and other ranks is just the first step. From April 1 next year, the registration and common entrance exam for army recruitment will be outsourced to an external agency. This will avoid the rush at open rallies where candidates throng in large numbers with their credentials. 
Brigadier V Rajamani, deputy director general, recruiting (Karnataka, Kerala and Union Territory of Lakshadweep, Mahe) said, "The initiative will be taken six months after the online registration process kicks in. Right now, we are focusing at publicising this to filter the flow of aspirants. The external agency will be finalised at the national level."
Applications will be open for Karnataka from August 6 wherein candidates from Uttara Kannada, Shimoga, Udupi, Chikmangalur, Dakshina Kannada, Davangere, Bijapur, Dharwad, Haveri, Gadag and Bagalkot can apply. Those selected will be 'called for recruitment' for the open rally in Haveri between October 6 and 13. The dates for online application close on September 22. Those interested will have to get themselves registered at www.joinindianarmy.nic.in and apply for career options in the army.
Brigadier Rajamani said, "We are upgrading the whole process and going digital as part of the pan-India process. There will be no more open recruitment rally system. There will be no recruitment without registration. Even outsourcing it to an external agency will be a national initiative." The new website of Indian Army was launched on June 16. "The directorate has had a detailed discussion with the chief secretary to publicise the new proposal and they have been positive and encouraging. To curb the problem of connectivity in rural areas cyber cafes, central government/state government kiosks like the central government common service centre (CSC), India Post (post offices) and IT education centres run by KEONICS of government of Karnataka, have been roped in. It can be accessed at cyber cafes or any personal computer/tablet with internet facility. We hope that people will not go through touts and agents and (we hope to) make the system as transparent as possible. Going digital is going to make it possible to a large extent," he said.
He said there had been an overwhelming response from the people of north Karnataka, and more than fifty percent of recruits from the state still come from this area. "We are trying to motivate the youth from south Karnataka as well by showing them attractive aspects of the army. But they still seem to be attracted to other job opportunities in southern Karnataka," he added. Out of a total of 60,000 people in the army, Karnataka aims at supplying around 1,500-2,000 recruits every year.

Inspired by PM's vision, Army warms up for digital recruitment drive

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Indian Military Veterans
Bengaluru, July 22: The Indian Army's Head Quarter (HQ) Recruiting Zone, Bengaluru, is warming up to launch a massive online recruitment drive targeting the youth of Karnataka and Kerala. The new recruitment drive is in tune with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's recently-launched ‘Digital India' initiative. 

Brig V Rajamani D, Deputy Director, General Recruiting (States) said on Wednesday that the recruitment for Junior Commissioned Officers (JCOs) and Other Ranks (OR) entry to Indian Army has been made online now.

"The candidates can apply via www.joinindianarmy.nic.in for JCOs and OR vacancies. We are doing away with ‘Open Recruitment Rally (ORR) system. The candidates will have to apply online and those shortlisted will be called for the regular rally. The eligibility details are available on the website," Brig Rajamani said. 

Indian Army has been conducting ORRs since April 1998. Through the digital drive, the Army aims to filter a considerable amount of candidates who don't meet their requirements. 

Better control over rallies 

"The recruitment process is transparent and there's no room for any malpractice. The public must be aware that touts and agents have no role to play here. We hope to have a better control over the situation at rallies now, with the candidates knowing when to appear and from which district," he said. 

To a specific query from OneIndia on the pattern of recruitments in Karnataka and Kerala, the officer said: "The response from North Karnataka is overwhelming. Kerala too is catching up with NCC playing a huge role." From April 2016, the Indian Army is also planning to outsource part of the recruitment drives to an agency. 

The Army Headquarters is currently in the process of finalizing the agency, which will primarily look into online screening of applicants.

 Minimum qualification is 12th pass 

To another question from OneIndia, he said that the current drive is mainly targeted on youth between 17-and-a-half-years to 23 years. 

"We are recruiting soldiers under general category, technicians and store keepers. The minimum qualification is 12th pass. We hope to recruit around 2000 soldiers from both states. The recruitments are based on RMP (Recruitable Male Population) of each state. For Karnataka, the RMP is 4.97 per cent of the national average," Brig Rajamani said. 

While filing online applications, candidates must carry their education qualification certificates including matriculation certificate, personal details, including permanent address with PIN number, domicile certificate, valid email, personal mobile number and recently taken passport size photograph. 

Massive preparations are being undertaken in liaison with the state governments of both states ahead of the online drive. Candidates can use central and state government kiosks like the Central Government Common Service Centre (CSC), India Post (Post Offices) and IT Education Centres for uploading their application forms.

'Fall in Number of Army Recruits From State'

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Indian Military Veterans
BENGALURU: The number of recruits from the state for the post of junior commissioned officers (JCO) in the Indian Army has been declining over the years.
Brigadier Victor Rajamani, deputy director general (recruiting), Karnataka and Goa Directorate, told reporters here on Wednesday that this was mainly due to the myriad job opportunities available in the state.
“However, the response from north Karnataka has been phenomenal, at around 50 per cent of the recruits from the state in a year, compared to south of the state,” he said. IT companies in the city lure away a lot of youth, and efforts are being made to create awareness about joining the Army, he said.
Brig. Rajamani, who was here to announce the selection of recruits (JCOs and other ranks), said the application process is now completely online. Henceforth, aspirants will have to register themselves on a website, after which they will be allowed to attend the rally.
Rajamani said the recruitment process has gone online to meet objectives of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Digital India initiative.
“Also, during rallies, hordes of aspirants descend on the location, which exerts a huge pressure on us and the local administration. Hence, making the registration process online will help in the long run,” he said.
Brig. Rajamani said around 1,500-2,000 aspirants are selected each year from the state. “The number of vacancies per year is determined by the headquarters in New Delhi. The number of vacancies per state varies from time to time, which is why it is difficult to put a finger on the exact number of people from the state who are recruited,” he said.
“Pan-India, around 60,000 aspirants get in every year. The headquarters determines the recruitable male population (RMP), which currently stands at 4.97 per cent in the state.”
After March 31, 2016, online registration will be outsourced to different agencies. These agencies will register the applicants and then pass on the details to the Army Recruitment Offices (ARO), he said.

Who can be selected?
Under the ‘JCO and other ranks’ category, aspirants can be selected as soldiers - general duty, soldiers - technical and soldiers - clerks (technical store-keepers). A pass in 12th grade is mandatory.

Recruitment rallies in the state
Oct -3 - Haveri. Districts covered - Uttara Kannada, Shivamogga, Udupi, Chikkamagaluru, Dakshina Kannada, Davangere, Vijayapura, Dharwad, Haveri, Gadag and Bagalkot. Registration from Aug 6 to Sept 22
Jan 6-16, 2016 - Bidar (Belagavi, Raichur, Bidar, Koppal, Kalaburagi, Yadgir). Registration from Nov 6 to Dec 23
Feb 1-4 - Ballari. (Bengaluru (Urban and Rural), Kolar, Mandya, Tumakuru, Mysuru, Chamarajnagar, Ramanagaram, Chikballapur, Kodagu, Chitradurga, Hassan and Ballari. Registration from Dec 1 to Jan 18, 2017

Recruitment of Junior Commissioned Officers (JCOs) and Other Ranks (OR) in the Indian Army has gone online.
The Army will invite only online applications at www.joinindianarmy.nic.in for JCOs/OR.

For online applications, candidates are advised to carry education qualification certificates, including the matriculation certificate, personal details, including the permanent address with the PIN number and the verification/ domicile certificate. Candidates must also have a personal, valid email ID, a personal mobile number and a recently taken passport-size photograph, Rajamani added.

He said the directorate had a detailed discussion with the chief secretary of Karnataka to help rural candidates to apply online through their machineries. The website can be opened in any personal computer/ tablet with Internet facility.

The applications can be uploaded for the State of Karnataka from August 6, 2015, wherein the candidates from Uttara Kannada, Shivamogga, Udupi, Chikkamagaluru, Dakshina Kannada, Davangere, Vijayapura, Dharwad, Haveri, Gadag and Bagalkot districts.

For the rest of the districts, candidates are requested to be updated from the zonal recruiting office Bengaluru link of www.joinindianarmy.nic.in

Brigadier Rajamani explained that the new system was the best way to attract best talent from Karnataka to the Army. The next rally is from October 6.

The Bengaluru police went in for online recruitment three years ago when applicants were asked to register online first, after which exams and interviews were scheduled.
