Notification for Implementation of OROP Issued

The Government today (07/11/2015) issued the notification regarding  implementation of ‘One Rank One Pension’ in respect of Defence Forces  personnel.
Defence Forces of India have a rich history and tradition of bravery and gallantry. Defence forces have not only defend our borders with exemplary courage and valour but have also performed with fearless attitude and empathy in natural calamities and other trying circumstances. Government of India recognizes and respects their contribution.

The issue of One Rank One Pension was a long standing   demand. Defence Forces had been demanding it for almost four decades but the issue could not be resolved. However, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi had made a commitment to implement it for the welfare of the ex-servicemen. Accordingly the Government had announced modalities for implementation of OROP on 05.09.2015.  The Government Order by Ministry of Defence, which could not be issued due to model code of conduct, has been issued today.

Salient features of the OROP as stated in the Order are as follows: 

                     I.        To begin with, pension of the past pensioners would be re-fixed on the basis of pension of retirees of calendar year 2013 and the benefit will be effective with effect from 1.7.2014. 

                   II.        Pension will be re-fixed for all pensioners on the basis of the average of minimum and maximum pension of personnel retiring in 2013 in the same rank and with the same length of service. 

                  III.        Pension for those drawing above the average shall be protected. 

                 IV.        Arrears will be paid in four equal half yearly instalments. However, all the family pensioners, including those in receipt of Special/Liberalized family pensioners, and Gallantry award winners shall be paid arrears in one instalment. 

                  V.        In future, the pension would be re-fixed every 5 years.


4. Personnel who opt to get discharged henceforth on their  own request under Rule 13(3)1(i)(b),13(3)1(iv) or Rule 16B of the Army Rule 1954 or equivalent Navy or Air Force Rules will not be entitled to the benefits of OROP. It will be effective prospectively.

5. The Govt. has decided to appoint a Judicial Committee to look into anomalies, if any, arising out of implementation of OROP. The Judicial Committee will submit its report in six months.  

6.    Detailed instructions along with tables indicating revised pension for each rank and each category, shall be issued separately for updation of pension and payment of arrears directly by Pension Disbursing Agencies. 

The previous Government had made a budget announcement to implement the OROP and made a provision of Rs 500  Crore.   The present Government undertook the task earnestly and realized that the actual additional annual expenditure would be eight to ten thousand crore at present and will increase further in future.   Notwithstanding the financial constraints, true to its commitment the present Government has issued the Government order to implement the OROP in true spirit.

4) No increments from 1/7/2014 as it is not being paid from 1/4/2014.

for men it is OROP means 10 types of pensions , like x group pension , and y group pension , and every year means 5 .so 10 types of pension .is it OROP ?

and one Havildar 17 years going to get only 500 hike ,suppose 20013 march rtd , he is getting 7600, as a basic pension and as per circular 501 havildar z groups payment is 6025 so add both and take average so ,13625/2 =6812.5 that is the orop .
like that
Rank old basic 501 2013 march basic pay OROP pay DA
sgt 6025 8050 7037.5 119%
11345 119%
6338 119%
hav 191/2 5917 7600 6758.5 119%

Subedhar 28 11345 11850 11597.5 119%

differences of payment is very negligible like X group sgt is not having any gain , y group sgts may have 580/- like that sub is gaining 252/-, havildhar with 19 1/2 years will gain 820/-
this is the One rank Adjustment payment .
once again Happy Black Divali and we can burn our medals.

Finally the govt has issued policy letter on OROP for veterans. It seems that all veterans are dissatisfied with the terms and conditions governing OROP. I am not able to comprehend or understand the reason why the veterans are making big hue and cry about OROP when they are already drawing more residual pension than the veterans who retired after implementation of 6 CPC. The pre 6 CPC veterans who retired upto 31 Dec 2005 may find it odd to stomach this statement. It is the reality on ground. Hence old veterans should be happy about the OROP that has now been announced by GOI. With this the difference of residual pension of old veterans as compared to the veterans retired during the currency of 6 CPC will increase further. The bone of contention of old veterans is that they got very less amount on account of commutation of pension as compared to the veterans of 6 CPC era. It is correct and no doubt about it. But the point what old veterans are conveniently forgetting is that whatever be the amount of commutation it is refundable with interest to GOI over a period of 15 years. Therefore the argument that old veterans got less commutation value is out of placed and not factual as all veterans got to refund whatever amount they got at the time of retirement.
As regards revision of basic pension the time period stipulated now is 5 years instead of 10 years as at present. It is definitely a gain for all veterans. In the back drop of above I being a defence veteran feel that OROP should be accepted without much hue and cry. If defence personnel are getting less pay than the civilian counterparts who is to be blamed?....Nobody else except our self centered and self serving flag officers of the armed forces. Who has stopped AV Sing commission report....Who has stopped higher age for retirement of navy Capt(TS).Who has stopped NPA for doctors in the armed forces... I am glad that SC has now given directives to increase the retirement age of Navy Capt(TS). Had it not for the myopic approach of our flag rank officers of all three forces, pay parity could have been achieved by defense personnel.... Only God or SC can help serving defense personnel or veterans.
