One Rank One Pension: Good News Soon

Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar today said there will be “good news” soon on the issue of One Rank One Pension, a long-standing demand of ex-servicemen who have been holding protests across the nation.
“It’s an inter-departmental issue. As far as the Defence Ministry is concerned, our work is almost over. This is taking time but I can say that there will be a good news soon,” he said.

Ex-servicemen have been protesting since last month to press for the implementation of One Rank, One Pension. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said that his government is committed to the long-awaited One Rank, One Pension (OROP) policy for ex-servicemen.
Currently, the pension of retired personnel is based on the pay commission recommendations in force at the time of their retirement.
One Rank One Pension scheme is aimed at ensuring that all retired soldiers, who have the same rank and the length of service receive the same amount of pension, irrespective of their date of retirement.
Currently, all those soldiers who retired before 2006 receive less pension than their counterparts and even their juniors.
