COMPLETE THEIR BACHELOR’S DEGREE
IGNOU on Tuesday launched an online registration portal for the Indian Air Force (IAF) personnel under project Akashdeep, which enables airmen to complete their bachelor’s degree, officials said.
‘This could be a model for many countries in terms of size and services. We are getting empowered by providing such capacity and showing that a university too can undergo such collaborations,’ IGNOU vice-chancellor V.N. Rajasekharan Pillai said.
According to Air Vice-Marshal Satyendra Kumar, the initiative will reach out to airmen posted anywhere in the country, where they can register themselves for an associate degree online online.
According to the university, 10 airmen registered themselves in-person after the launch ceremony.
Project Akashdeep was launched in December 2010. Under it, all serving airmen can obtain bachelor’s degrees within 8 to 13 years of their service.

One Rank One Pension not feasible-Minister informs Parliament

Pension improvement is an ongoing process. Considerable improvements have been made in the pensions of armed forces personnel.
A Committee was set up under the Chairmanship of Cabinet Secretary to look into the issue of 'One Rank One Pension and other related matters'. After considering all aspects of the matter, the Committee did not find it feasible to recommend One Rank One Pension. However, keeping in mind the spirit of the demand, several other recommendations to substantially improve pensionary benefits of Personnel Below Officer Rank (PBOR) and Commissioned Officers were made, which have been accepted by the Government and orders in implementation of all the recommendations have been issued. These are available at www.pcdapension.nic.in. Implementation of these orders has not only significantly reduced the gap between the past and the current pensioners but has also considerably improved the pension of ex-servicemen including disabled ex-servicemen.
As per yearly statement of booking of Defence Pension Expenditure during year 2009-10 & 2010-11, the entire amount allotted for Defence Pension Expenditure has been booked in full and no amount is lying unspent.
This information was given by Minister of State for Defence Shri MM Pallam Raju in a written reply to Shri Jyoti Mirdha and others in Lok Sabha today.

Reservation for Ex-Servicemen

Reservation for Ex-Servicemen
There is no provision for earmarking of posts exclusively for ex- servicemen therefore the data on the actual number of reserved posts and unfilled vacancies earmarked for the Ex-servicemen are not maintained. However, percentagewise reservations ranging from 10 to 24.5% of the total available vacancies in Group C & D posts in Government jobs and Public Sector Undertakings have been provided for the willing and eligible Ex- servicemen.
It is the responsibility of concerned organization to fill the vacant posts. However the government endeavours to explore every possible avenue for increasing employment opportunities for the Ex-servicemen through various initiatives including trainings and awareness programmes. Moreover, the State Governments have also been advised to fill up the vacancies reserved for Ex-servicemen expeditiously. Since the Department of Ex-servicemen Welfare has no mandate to monitor the job reservations for Ex-servicemen, the matter has been taken up with Cabinet Secretariat in consultation with Department of Personnel & Training to empower Department of Ex-servicemen Welfare to monitor the same through appropriate changes in relevant rules.
This information was given by Minister of State for Defence Shri MM Pallam Raju in a written reply to Shri Ananth Kumar and Shri Devji M. Patel in Lok Sabha today.
