The Navy has been cheating the 10 + 10 years Reservist
Navy has been cheating us,through bogus lies for denying our genuine and legal right of “Reservists pension” all these days. They had so far won, by three ‘lies”. I want everyone of you reading this post personally .
1. through cheating the judiciary through an abolished act of Royal Naval fleet reserve rule of 1939.(they quoted it as of 1940,where as in fact the act was of 1939,which was legally abolished or withdrawn along with many such obsolete laws brought in by Britishers)
2. Stating before the courts that “we had given unwillingness” for further engagements as such not entitled to pension. In reality, we all know that, we had no such “right” of giving unwillingness for being called for or for keeping in reserve on completion of 10 years. The unwillingness was for only regular service, for which “regular pension” is given. None of us has demanded for a regular pension.
3. Then relying on the “if required clause” of engagement. Even, there is nothing wrong in that usage of “if required”as no one could foresee a requirement after 10 years. In fact the “requirement ” was there even after 03 jul 1976, because,even now there is reserve service liability. What is stopped is transferring to reserve service and a separate training. It may be noted that, not even a “single Person” recruited prior to 03 jul 1976, was kept in reserve after 03 jul 1976 .i.e. we were not kept because of any fault or bad service record attributable to us. We were not kept because of a govt policy of not to keep in reserve, for which as per section 95 of the pension regulation we were entitled to Special Pension.
It was quite unfortunate that, no One could counter these blatant lies of Navy, in any of the cases where we were defeated, in spite of engaging very smart lawyers there. why? why ? why? because, so far, we were leaving everything before lawyers for the running of cases, without no active involvement, with out knowing that, on such service / pension matters, lawyers role is very limited.
