DUPED DIPLOMATS OF INDIA

DUPED DIPLOMATS OF INDIA

BY

Lt Gen PG Kamath (Veteran)

 The Indian Ministry of External Affairs has let down the country umpteen times.  Somehow, since our independence, it has not been able to get its act together.  Repeated failures in the formulation of policy and an absolute lack of strategic thinking have been their hallmark.  In the past two decades, they have been joined by National Security Council.  Now, both are bungling together with no idea as to how to pursue our national interest and have collectively resolved to play blind and not see the writings on the wall.

 After centuries of slavery, we became independent but we still lacked the basic

Lt Gen PG Kamath (Veteran)

 “A lot of Faujis would know Lt Gen PG Kamath (Veteran). He does not write Retd, I am following suit now. He has written a brilliant piece on OROP. This one has all the rationale and logic clear. Makes mince meat out of any other argument. Unfortunately not on any domain or website. As such I am posting the entire script here. - LT GEN ATA HASNAIN”

It was post 1971 and the nation was euphoric. Our countrymen were lauding the Indian Armed Forces for a spectacular victory that had changed the geography of the sub-continent. The nation was savouring the victory and more than 97,368 prisoners were in our Prisoners of War Camps. It was the second largest surrender in the Military History; second only to the surrender of Gen Von Paulus, German, 6th Army at Stalingrad in the Second World War. The Armed Forces were feted everywhere for its courage and the people were convinced that it was one instrument that would never let the country down.

Amidst this euphoria there were 4000 families, who had lost their

          RETIRED PHASE OF LIFE.   After serving the Armed Forces for decades every one has to embark upon the newer phase of his/her life called "Retirement". It could be harrowing time for some while the same it mat turn out into enjoyment with all the time to oneself do do whatever one likes. It is natural to feel bit lonely and cut-off after  retirement, as one is out of usual communications with old colleagues. In addition many issues which we never had to bother while in service crop up,  Pension Entitlements and its arrears,  Income Tax, Investments, ECHS, CSD etc etc issues begin to surface with surprise.

Dear Sir/Madam

Master Circular – Disbursement of Government Pension by Agency Banks

1.  Please refer to our Master Circular RBI/2020-21/06 dated July 1, 2020 on the above subject. We have now revised and updated the Master Circular which consolidates important instructions on the subject issued by the Reserve Bank of India till March 31, 2021
2. A copy of the revised Master Circular is enclosed for your information. This circular may also be downloaded from our website www.mastercirculars.rbi.org.in.

**WILL**

YOUR WILL AND TESTAMENT 
(VERY VERY IMPORTANT REQUIREMENT)

We have time and again stressed on our readers to prepare their will so that their families donot have to rum from pillar to post after the veteran has left for his heavenly abode. It is a very simple document which needs no expertise or legal opinion. One can write in manuscript on a plain paper and express his WILL for distribution of his assets in the manner one feels like. In the absence of a WILL your wife and children will get equal share each after long long procedures in the civil court for succession certificate. One must know the lineage who all can claim part of the assets which will render into endless court hearings.

Before proceeding further we invite you to go through our posts on the subject as mentioned below :-

I-TAX 2021 & 2022

BUDGET 2021 - INCOME TAX FOR FY-2021-22 AND FILING RETURNS FOR FY 2020-21

  There is no change either in Income tax slabs or the Tax Rate to what has been for the previous year ie FY - 2020-21. As such, it is necessary to refresh the slabs and the rates of the previous year and the Regimes,  Old Vs the New Regime. We are pleased to include the same in this post.

   There is however a new portal of the Income Tax Department which will be live wef 7th June 2021. https://incometax.gov.in replacing the old portal https://incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in. The Income tax Department is likely to ease the return filing by us. Please watch the detailed video placed in this portal as you proceed reading further.

  There is only one change in the Budget 2021 that Assesses above 75 Years of age who have no other income than their Pension and Bank Interests have been exempted to file their income tax returns subject to few conditions.

HOW TO FILE RTI APPLICATION

HOW TO FILE AN RTI APPLICATION ?

Here we are discussing for filing of RTI for Central Government Departments with the Central Information Commission.    

Under the Right to Information Act 2005, every Indian citizen has right to demand

any information from the government if he/she desires to do so.

 For example: a citizen can demand information regarding delay in his passports from the Government, photocopy of answer sheets in any competitive exam, enclosure of any file with note sheet etc. (Post Continues below)

SPOUSE NAME MISMATCH- CORRECTION / CHANGE

MISMATCH OF SPOUSE's NAME -- We have recently noticed that there are far too many cases among not only the JCOs & ORs but also among the officers where the names of their Spouse or the beneficiary children mentioned in the official Service records specially the PPO, of the Service Personnel do not match in Toto with the Government issued identity cards/certificates (IDs). It leads to serious problems for the family when the time for the family pension comes. It may take 6 to 12 months before the problem is sorted and the spouse or the family member finally gets the family pension.
We therefore are posting the detailed actions which need to be taken by the veterans while still in good health have the mismatches corrected. Let us first understand as to the Correct Official name of any individual. The name and the date of birth as written in the tenth class certificate is the first and topmost to legally accepted to reckon with,

COMMISSIONED OFFICERS

WHAT IS MEANT BY  COMMISSIONED

Sadly and regretfully,  we the Armed Forces Officers  neither know the meaning of being a "commissioned" officer nor it is a part of our curriculum in the Training Academies or the officer’s courses at any level. You as a commissioned officer are the only category who get a commissioning parchment stamped in the name of the President, earlier it was the King or the Queen who stamped the parchment. By tradition the President uses his stamp and does not sign. No civil servant of even the so called organised Group “A” Officer gets anything like this. They get an appointment letter signed by some Under Secretary in their department.

A commission carries with it the authority of the Constitution to exercise the powers of the State so  vested in the President as mandated, specially of the command of soldiers.

MAJ-GENs - PENSION REVISION (VAINS CASE)


REVISION OF PENSION FOR ALL PRE-2006 MAJOR GENERALS.
(Implementation of Honourable Supreme Court judgment in Maj Gen VAINS and others Case)
    Govt of india had to finally accept implementation of the above Judgment for all Maj Gens (Letter  - CLICK TO OPEN ) . It means that on 01 Jan 2006 their last drawn pay would have to be re-fixed as if for 6th CPC in line with serving Maj Gens who are similarly placed in Years of Service in Rank and pension be given accordingly wef 01 Jan 2006. The PCDA (O) had issued the revised LPC based on which PCDA (P) has also issued revised Corrg PPO to all the pre 2006 Maj Gens. This results into increase in pension from 01 Jan 2006 to 30 June 2014. Most of the Maj Gens have thus also received their arrears by July 2019. All pre-2006 retired Maj Gens have thus been benefited. 
     We give here how to check the correctness of arrears and how to spread them to the previous years to which they pertain to claim rebate in Income Tax under Sec 89 (l)

NATIONAL PENSION SCHEME - BENEFITS

NATIONAL PENSION SCHEME

Budget 2019: Income Tax Benefits Under National Pension System 
By Vinotha Tilak On Jul 15, 2019

In the Budget 2019, the government made certain changes to income tax rules on investment in the National Pension System (NPS). Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman increased the income tax exemption limit on withdrawal from NPS and announced some additional income tax benefits for employees who contribute towards the scheme. In NPS, which is a government-sponsored savings scheme, a government employee contributes towards pension from the monthly salary, whereas a matching contribution is made by the employer.

EXECUTIVE AUTHORITY OF MILITARY - CONSTITUTIONAL PROVISIONS

Constitutional provisions for the executive authority of the military.
Constitutional military executive authority of the soldiers comes out of the following articles:

1. Article 18;- respects the "Title of Ranks" of Soldiers even after his death. Soldiers never retire. Title of Ranks never die.

2. Article 34:- Gives military a political executive authority to intervene by declaring martial law only to restore democracy. In India parliamentary democracy is supreme. This article makes Indian military as soldiers totally committed to democracy and "we the people".

YOUR-WILL DOCU (DO IGNORE THIS AT THE PERIL OF YOUR WIFE)

WHY MAKING A WILL IS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY FOR VETERANS
It is unfortunate that most of us have no understanding of the importance of making a WILL . They keep pending or simply ignore. PLEASE REMEMBER that after the death of the officer all his properties will be distributed equally among his wife and children. The wife is not the only Natural Heir of the person. It is equally valid in case of the wife as well. The Indian succession Act a copy of which is available on this site is very clear on this distribution.

  However the said Act gives the right to any person to dispose off his own assets the way he likes. For this the

DEFINING SPIRITUALITY

SPIRITUALITY AND RELIGION


People often ask me this, "Why Spirituality?"

Well, the answer is quite simple. But before we attempt to answer that, we must know the meaning of the term Spirituality and Being Spiritual.

This again is very simple. What we have been doing is to confuse spirituality with religion and rituals. We think that everything that resembles religion may also be connected to Spirituality. Well, friends, Spirituality includes religion but religion does not encapsulate Spirituality. I will explain.
