An association of retired Border Security Force officers today alleged that BSF retirees were “ignored” in terms of pension and welfare measures compared to other armed force personnel.
A BSF jawan is working as the front line defence of the country in severe conditions on 24×365 days basis till his retirement but he does not get the same benefits as those of army men, state-based the Retired BSF Officers’ Association alleged in a release.
“We retirees are ignored in terms of proper pension, perks and privileges, medical facility and other welfare measure in comparison with other armed forces which we feel a very sad state of affair,” it said.
It was surprising to see that the army retiree is given One Rank One Pension whereas it is deprived to a BSF retiree, the release said.
They wanted the Centre government to address their plight and make an effective intervention to set things right, the release added.
