RTI Against DG Resettlement

Col R Mahesh

Recommended Posts

I took premature retirement from the Army in March 2007. At the time of leaving the ruling was that i could avail of the DG resettlement courses upto 5 years after retirement.

In Jun 2010, i applied for a resettlement course but was told that the DG resettlement policy had changed in Sep 2009 and courses could now be availed only within 3 years after retirement and that i had missed the bus.

I put up an RTI with following queries:

1. What were the reasons for the policy change?

2. Steps taken by DG Resettlement to give timely information of this change especially to those who retired prior to Sep 2009?

3. What was the option for those who retired in 2006 and were planning to do the course after 3 or 4 years of retirement?

4. Were any deviations given to the Sep 2009 policy after Sep 2009?

5. If so details of ex servicemen granted such waivers.

I got some wishy washy response to my queries and raised the level.

DG Resettlement, finally extended the date of validity to 5 years for pre 2009 retirees and 3 years for post 2009 retirees and my stand was vindicated.

Thanks to the RTI act, a number of other ex servicemen would also have benefitted from this.
