A copy of the book must be passed on to Justice Mr. Mathur, Chairman 7 CPC for his understanding of the system.

Congrats Sir. Cover and back pages suggest it will be an extraordinary book. One is neat and tidy and another one is so expressive. Also, m sure there must be good reasons for not writing rank. wish u all the best :-)

On seeing IA in operation on TV my maid asked my wife,'how much extra will they be paid for the yeoman work'. On being told 'not even a paisa', she exclaimed in wonder, 'ARE THEY INDIANS?'
Tears flowed down my wife's cheeks as she narrated it to me.

Dear Maj. Navdeep,

Good morning.

Congratulations for your book.

I am approaching you for guidance on the matter related to pension for SS officers in Central govt/PSU or autonomous organisations.

(i) In most of the organisations an SS officer if deposits his terminal gratuity (TG), his military service is counted towards pensionable service in that organisation.

(ii) The organisations were OK with it till time old pension rules (33 years of complete service for pension) were existed however things have changed now with new pension rule of 20 years service with full pension have come.

(iii) The orgnisation have refused to give any benefit to the SS officers stating that since now they are also eligible for full pension (i.e after 20 years) therefore they will not get the benefits as earlier infact they have refused to even return the amount (TG) which was deposited by the individual officer with 6% interest.

(iv) Now a few officers are planning to represent and request organisation to return their terminal gratuity.

(v) However I strongly feel since we had deposited our TG for pension benefits therefore we must still get it under pension benefit as the years spent in military can not be revoked and an officer will be getting less pension in terms of years of service completed in new organisation (a person with 30 years of service will get more pension than that of who has served for 25 years-the person with 25 years of service could not get 30 years pension because his military service for pension benefits is not counted)

Hope you would have understood our delema.

Please guide us in the matter (I am not sure weather an SS officer now serving in Central Govt is getting the pension benefits with addition of past military service)

I will be happy to share details with you.

Dear Major Navdeep,
I have just finished reading your book Maimed By The System.
I was not aware of the callousness of the system! I am sorry to learn that sometimes, the malaise is within the service itself.You have done yeomen service by writing this book.I wish it is read by the Civilian population too.

Warm Regards
GH Israni
