"One rank one pension may be implemented" - Army Chief

 Chief of Army Staff General V K Singhtoday hinted at implementation of one rank one pension and said all information regarding ex-army men would be collected and their problems would be sorted out. 

Addressing a conference of ex-army men Gen Singh said that all efforts were being made to implement one rank one pension from the last two years. 

Stating efforts were also being made to remove disparity in the family pension scheme, the COASsaid it may take time, but there would certainly be one or the other good outcome. 

Implementation of one rank one pension scheme would involve an expenditure of Rs 3,000 crore, but it was less from the point of the welfare of the soldiers, Singh said. 

He was here to unveil the statue of former Prime Minister Chadrashekhar at Devsthali. 

Assuring soldiers after becoming pensioners they would not be forgotten, Gen Singh said both unit and headquarters have been directed to speedily redress pension related and other complaints of ex-army men. 

He said that all details of ex-army men, including that of their families, were being gathered and they would include whether any family member of an ex-army man was aggrieved and what his problem was. 

Though the media was kept away from his programme some reporters managed to enter the venue and enquired Gen Singh whether he would hand over documents related to the bribery case to the CBI. 

Gen Singh refused to comment and said that media should gather information from the CBI in this regard.
