Ex-servicemen status for retired paramilitary troops



In the run up to Himachal Pradesh assembly and an eye on 2014 parliamentary polls, the government has decided to extend ex-servicemen benefits to retired central paramilitary personnel. The move will please 17 lakh serving and retired personnel from the forces, who were treated like any other government employee.
The Cabinet on Thursday passed a proposal moved by the home ministry to declare retired personnel from Central Armed Police Force(CAPF) as "ex-central police personnel" and extend them several benefits that ex-servicemen from the armed forces get.

Like former servicemen, now the retired paramilitary forces personnel will get quota in jobs, higher education for their wards and attendant medical benefits. However, they won't be eligible for certain Central government benefits such as preferential allotment of petrol pumps and gas agency as the Centre has put financial burden of the development entirely on states.


They will also not share the quota of ex-servicemen from defence forces, but have separate reservations as decided by different states.

The move has come at a time when Himachal Pradesh, which sends a large number of its men to various forces, is facing elections. And with general elections only a year and a half away, the policy decision will bring cheer to over seven lakh retired paramilitary personnel across the country apart from nine lakh serving in various forces such as CRPF, BSF, SSB, ITBP and CISF.

The government also hopes the move will help bring attrition in the forces down. Around 44,000 personnel have resigned from paramilitary forces since 2009 due to stressful conditions of work and lack of medical benefits.

Though the proposal for these benefits was made in 2010 itself, home minister Sushil Kumar Shinde announced its passing by the Cabinet in quite a dramatic fashion. While attending a CRPF function on Thursday morning, he said, "I am moving a proposal in the Cabinet to grant retired paramilitary personnel the status of ex-servicemen. Paramilitary personnel, like defence forces, put their life at stake in the line of duty and there is no problem in granting them this honour."

Four hours later, at function organized by CISF, the minister said, "I had announced at the CRPF function about granting ex-servicemen status to retired paramilitary men. After that I went to attend the Cabinet meeting and the Cabinet approved the proposal. These personnel will be called as 'ex-central police personnel' on the same footing as ex-servicemen in the defence forces."
The forces, in particular their retired personnel, have a mixed reaction. P S Nair, general secretary of All India Central Paramilitary Forces Ex-servicemen Welfare Association, said, "We have been struggling for this for the past several years. We are happy it has come now. It will make us eligible for 60-65 benefits given to ex-servicemen by states. However, this is not enough. We also want one-rank-one-pension like the Army. We are doing a gherao of the CGO Complex on November 21 to press for our demands."

Relief to ex-servicemen seeking civil job?
 Bhartesh Singh Thakur

Chandigarh, August 17, 2014    In a relief to ex-servicemen looking for jobs on civil side, the department of personnel and training has, in a letter on August 14, stated that now the ex-servicemen quota could be used for civil employment more than once.  After retiring from military, ex-servicemen used to apply for various job opportunities. Earlier, if one has used the ex-servicemen quota once he could not opt for any other job under the said quota. This condition used to affect chances of ex-servicemen, who if applied for posts of different pay-scales opted first a lower pay-scale job as the results of others are pending. He could not have opted for a job of higher pay-scale as he has exhausted the quota. But now this condition has been removed.   Background  Vide a letter issued in 1985, it was decided that once an ex-serviceman has joined the government job on civil side after availing of the benefits given to him as an ex-serviceman for his re-employment, his ex-serviceman status for the purpose of re-employment in government would cease. It was also decided that on his joining the civil employment, he would be deemed to be a civil employee and would accordingly be entitled to only such of the benefits like relaxation of age, etc., as admissible to civil employees in the normal course.  Then, another letter was issued in 1989, clarifying that the instructions of 1985 shall not apply to those ex-servicemen who have been re-employed by private companies/autonomous bodies/public sector undertakings/government offices on casual/contract/temporary ad hoc basis and who can be removed from such service at any time by their employer concerned.  As the ex-servicemen were not able to apply for subsequent employment on civil side even after using the quota once, the matter was considered by the department of ex-servicemen welfare. "The matter has, therefore, been considered in consultation with department of ex-servicemen, ministry of defence. It has now been decided that if an ex-serviceman applies for various vacancies before joining any civil employment, he/she can avail of the benefit of reservation as ex-serviceman for any subsequent employment. However, to avail of this benefit, an ex-serviceman as soon as he/she joins any civil employment, should give self-declaration/undertaking to the employer concerned about the date-wise details of application for various vacancies for which he/she had applied for before joining the initial civil employment," says the letter issued by the department of personnel and training.  Further, this benefit would be available only in respect of vacancies, which are filled on direct recruitment and wherever reservation is applicable to the ex-servicemen, the letter added.
