Name: Vinod Nebb
Rank: Wing Commander,
Indian Air Force
A resident of DehradunWing Commander Vinod Nebb (retired) had a satisfying military career for 27 years before he had a heart attack in 1990 and subsequently retired from the Indian Air Force on medical grounds.
“I had a great career in the air force -- those were the best days. However, this protest over OROP is spoiling it for me,” says the wing commander. “I shouldn’t be here. It hurts that my service is being rewarded in this way.”
“In 1973, our pensions were lowered from 70 per cent to 50 per cent. A widow of an officer who lost his life in the 1965 or 1971 war draws less than Rs 9,000. Should we be rejoicing? These people gave their lives for our country.”
