Demand for One Rank One Pension for Retired Army Personnel

The ex-servicemen Associations have been demanding for several years grant of same pension which is granted to new pensioners with same rank and same length of service irrespective of date of retirement, popularly known as "One Rank One Pension" (OROP). The differentials in pension between the past and the new retirees arise on account of the fact that the computation of pension depends on the pay scale of the person at the time of retirement and pension undergoes change as and when the pay scales are revised.

Their requests have been considered by the Government and over the years several improvements have been made in pension of past pensioners in accordance with the recommendations of successive Pay Commissions, as accepted by the Government.
The Cabinet Secretary Committee constituted by the Government of India to look into the demand of OROP and related issues gave seven recommendations to reduce the gap between past and current pensioners. All the seven recommendations were accepted and implemented which has significantly reduced the gap between the past and present pensioners and also considerably improved the pension of disabled ex-servicemen. However pension reform is a continuous process.

This information was given by Minister of Defence Shri A.K. Antony in written reply to Shri T.M. Selvaganapathi in Rajya Sabha today.

"One rank one pension may be implemented" - Army Chief
Chief of Army Staff General V K Singhtoday hinted at implementation of one rank one pension and said all information regarding ex-army men would be collected and their problems would be sorted out.

Addressing a conference of ex-army men Gen Singh said that all efforts were being made to implement one rank one pension from the last two years.

Stating efforts were also being made to remove disparity in the family pension scheme, the COASsaid it may take time, but there would certainly be one or the other good outcome.
Implementation of one rank one pension scheme would involve an expenditure of Rs 3,000 crore, but it was less from the point of the welfare of the soldiers, Singh said.

He was here to unveil the statue of former Prime Minister Chadrashekhar at Devsthali.

Assuring soldiers after becoming pensioners they would not be forgotten, Gen Singh said both unit and headquarters have been directed to speedily redress pension related and other complaints of ex-army men.

He said that all details of ex-army men, including that of their families, were being gathered and they would include whether any family member of an ex-army man was aggrieved and what his problem was.

Though the media was kept away from his programme some reporters managed to enter the venue and enquired Gen Singh whether he would hand over documents related to the bribery case to the CBI.

Gen Singh refused to comment and said that media should gather information from the CBI in this regard.

One Rank One Pension for Army : Anomalies sent to ministry
 Army Chief General VK Singh on Wednesday said that the anomalies concerning the ex-servicemen which emerged after implementation of the sixth pay commission recommendations have been sent to the Defence Ministry for their quick redressal.
The issue of One Rank-One Pension is under consideration of the Government, General Singh said this addressing an ex-servicemen rally held at village Palda in this district of Jhajhar in Haryana.
General Singh said that the government is sensitive to the needs of the retired soldiers.

He said that it is the duty of the Army to take care of the dignity and welfare of ex-servicemen, war widows and their family members.

Recently, General Singh had addressed a gathering of ex-servicemen in Haryana's Gurgaon where he had said that after the sixth pay commission, 46 anomalies were discovered which were causing losses to the ex-servicemen and had been put before the government.

Addressing the rally here, General Singh said that ex-servicemen are the legacy of our country and the fame of the Indian Army is only because of their efforts.

He said that such rallies are being organised all over the country and the aim of such rallies is to redress their grievances and to take care of their health and meet their needs.

The General said that keeping in view the welfare and honour of ex-servicemen, war widows and their families, the year 2012 has been declared as the year of Ex-Servicemen Welfare.

He said that under this initiative, for the redressal of their grievances an ex-servicemen cell has been set up and it is headed by a retired brigadier level officer.

Now, the ex-servicemen could register their complaints on the tollfree number 1800-111-6644 of the cell, he said, adding, they could also enquire about the redressal by calling on the same number.

While visiting the stalls of Health Camp, Pension Adalat, Sena Kalyan Awas Sanstha, Sena Samuhik Bima Yojna organised at the venue of the rally, he said, ex-servicemen should take full advantage of these facilities.

Gen Singh also honoured the war widows during the rally.

The rally here was organised by the Army under the aegis of Hissar Military Station. Nearly 12,000 ex-servicemen of five districts participated and benefitted from this event.
Lieutenant General Gyan Bhushan, General Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Sapta Shakti Command and Lieutenant Gen Ashok Singh, General Officer Commanding, 1 Corp were among those present during the occasion.

Ex soldiers NOT likely to get "One rank one pension"

Ex soldiers NOT likely to get "One rank one pension"
 The Prime Minister-appointed pay panel is unlikely to accept the ex-servicemen's demand of One Rank One Pension (OROP). Sources say that the government could agree to modified parity. The committee which is still to submit its report to the Prime Minister has already met the three service chiefs.
One Rank One Pension means two military persons who retired after equal service in the same rank, get equal pension, irrespective of time span separating their retirement date.
Sources, however, say that the government-appointed pay panel is unlikely to agree to this demand. Instead, it may offer modified parity which simply means that for purposes of pension, pay grades will be fixed.
Enhancement of widows' pension, fixing of common scales for all Junior Commissioned Officers (JCOs) and and other ranks (ORs) and the grant of non-functional upgradation may also get the green signal.
The pay panel has met the three service chiefs for their inputs, after repeated warnings that the issue of pay and pension was leading to a whole lot of restlessness among the forces.
Many say, naturally so. For instance: A sepoy who retired in 1995 will get a pension which is roughly 80 per cent less than his counterpart who retired on or after after January 1, 2006.
Worse, three Havaldars with exactly the same length of service could earn different pensions if one retired before 96, the second before 2006 and the third post-2006.
The financial aspect apart, the pay panel has also been told that this one issue was leading to organisational problems, especially in areas where the Army men were working in close co-ordination with his civilian counterparts.
The pay panel's deliberations are still work in progress and the hope is that by Independence Day, the government will have a gift for its men in uniform.
