Hari Ram saw combat in both the 1965 and 1971 wars against Pakistan. When he joined the Army as a Sipahi, he would make just about the same wage as a day-labourer - Rs. 60 a month. "But I joined for the love of the Army," the retired soldier, now in his seventies, says. Hari Ram's pension till date was a meagre Rs. 3,500 per month. He is hoping after today's announcement of the One Rank One Pension scheme, his pension will jump by roughly Rs. 4,000.
