Govt implementing One-Rank One-Pension for ex-servicemen

Appealing to ex-servicemen not to take the extreme step of returning their gallantry awards, government today said it has started implementing recommendations of the high level panel on One-Rank One-Pension. However, Defence Minister A K Antony said in the Rajya Sabha that implementing the award in one go was difficult. “In one stretch, we will not be able to implement it but we are near that goal… it is a long process,” he said.

He said the government has implemented all recommendations of the committee headed by the Cabinet Secretary which went into the demands for One-Rank One-Pension. This would have a financial implication of Rs 2,200 crore and would help 12 lakh ex-servicemen, he said.

  1. Sir, it is not true that all PBOR ex service men have been bnifited . Mwos granted Hony commision have been left out. That have created an anomaly. Now Hony offrs are getting less pension than Mwos, the rank held by them earlier. pension of Mwo - 13590 and Hony Flg offr-13500 only.Pl refer Govt letter on modified pension circular no 430 table no 124 and 133. Very much dis appointing.It may not be in the knowledge of Govt.

  2. There is a serious confusion between the terminolgy used by the pay commision "minimum pay in the payband" and "minimum in the payband".Only pay commision or court can clear this doubt.
