Mysore – 570 019


Dear Sir,


1. I am pleased to inform you that, I have been reading a lot about your charitable trust’s service for the uplift of Ex-Servicemen fraternity through leading local and national dailies.  Subsequent, to the news that appeared in website www.starofmysore.com dated 30th November 2005 and the news in ‘The Hindu’ and ‘The New Indian Express’ edition dated 1st December 2005, I decided to approach your charitable trust with a request to take up my pension case, on my behalf, on the above subject with the appropriate authorities.

2. Case History:

I was enrolled in the Indian Air Force as an airmen with Service No. 673777 ‘F’ on 04th November 1981.  I was released from the Indian Air Force on 8th March 1990 subsequent to grant of Short Service Commission on 9th March 1990 in the Indian Army. I was released from the Indian Army as an Acting Major on 6th April 1995, on fulfilling the terms of engagement as a SSC Officer.  My total reckonable service in the Armed Forces for the purpose of claiming pension from defence estimates is 13 years 146 days.

3. I had forwarded a lot of representation to every conceivable authority immediately after my release from the Indian Army for sanctioning of eligible Gratuity and Retiring Pension as per the policy in vogue. However, the authorities at CDA (Pension) Allahabad kept hedgehopping over the subject and they are yet to sanction my pension even after a lapse of well over 10 years.  

4. I have all the reason to believe that, the inordinate delay in sanctioning my bonafide gratuity and pension is either due to pension sanctioning authorities redtapisum or due to CCDA’s ignorance / inefficiency. Repeated representations and remainders from my end yielded no result. Clarification address to CCDA Pension by Army and Air Force authorities on the subject were brushed aside with no respect what so ever. I have all the grounds to conclude that, the pension sanctioning authorities has displayed their negligence and callous attitude in handling my claim.

5. When I approached a few retired Air Marshals and Army Generals, I was also advised me to approach your trust as you have a panel of advocates who are taking the cause of hapless Ex-Servicemen and widows of Ex-Servicemen.

6. In view of the above and as per the advise of a few retired senior Armed Forces Officers I am enclosing copies of the official communication, I have received from Air Force Record Office, Army authorities and CDA Pension.  I am also enclosing a copy of the judgment pronounced by the High Court of Kerala at Erankulam (OP No. 15186 of 1994 – G) in a similar case pertaining to Ex-Capt. C.V.Muralidharan.

7. I shall be grateful to you Sir, if you could kindly take-up my case with appropriate authorities to get my pension sanctioned along with compound interest for the entire arrears and compensation for the mental agony I suffered for well over 10 years due to the callous attitude of Pension sanctioning authorities i.e. CCDA (P) Allahabad.

8. I am sure sir, your trust would certainly educate the concerned authorities, specifically at the principal / chief controller of Defence Accounts (Pensions) in order to get my pension sanctioned at the earliest with compound interest @ 12% per annum.

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,

A / Major G.R. Nagabhushana (Retd)

  4. Dear Major Nagabhushan , the Ghundi is at the time of retirement did you opt for Pension or Gratuity ?, the rules in Vogue is you may draw the pension of the last PBOR held before grant of SSC with counting of your SSC service or Gratuity of the SSC rank. However if you have not opted for gratuity or you were not given the option you may fight for you will get Rs.3500/-m, that is minimum pension as per 6th CPC.

  10. Hi Sir,

    I would like to know about the rules relating to pensionary benefits to those existing pensioners acquiring foreign citizenship. Your advice would be highly appreciated as I can take a proper decision based on it, thanks in advance,

  11. I am in the process of building a website to co-ordinate all associations that represents the EX-SERVICEMEN. As all of us know that UNITY IS STRENGTH, we should not be in different associations, which weakens our strength.

    As many associations are formed long back and has established their identity, we should keep all association’s identity intact and still our unity should give us strength.

    All ex-servicemen associations reading this may send a mail to me (sethuramks@gmail.com) so that I can give you all a FREE WEBSITE. All associations who wishes to get the FREE WEBSITE should send their details of their associations (aim, moto, rules and regulations, details of the governing body) and members details in an MS Excel format to my address.

    All associations can separately access to their website and their members can login seperately, even when they are a member of the http://www.ex-servicemenonline.com

    All ex-servicemen can join this including the paramilitary forces. Serving personnel who are planning to come out of service can search for an association near to their place and join directly to that.

    Hope to see you all soon

  12. Sir,
    With due respect I would like to submit that I am an exserviceman from army. This is regarding the medical scheme viz ECHS which as I understand and experienced the expensive one for an exserviceman. As man presently in service with the govt are getting Rs 300/- pm as medical allowance as routine. whereas the exserviceman who have opted for ECHS are not getting the medical allowance thus this is premium of Rs 3600/- pa for an exserviceman. Moreover as I reside in the state of Gujarat where the majority of exserviceman are residing in the scattered area and the expenditure in transportation does not permit for an exserviceman for availing medical facility in the majority of cases. Usually a family of exserviceman spending average of Rs 400/- for getting local treatment of minor diseases. The ECHS clinics are only two in the entire state and in most of the cases an exserviceman has to undertake 100 to 200 kms of journey for any treatment. Moreover there are strict clarical formalities in the cases of reference to panel hospitals. Really the system is as at present USELESS and EXPENSIVE for exserviceman.

    With regards,
