Notification for Implementation of OROP Issued


The Government today 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 winnersshall 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.

  3. अधिसूचना के मुताबिक साल 2013 में अवकाश प्राप्त करने वाले पूर्व सैनिकों का पेंशन दुबारा तय किया जाएगा। पूर्व सैनिकों को बढ़े हुए पेंशन का लाभ जुलाई 2014 से मिलेगा। भविष्य में पेंशन को हर पांच साल बाद संशोधन किया जाएगा। जो सैनिक स्वेच्छा से वीआरएस लेते हैं या रिटायर होते हैं उन्हें इसका लाभ नहीं मिलेगा।

  7. नई दिल्ली: केन्द्र सरकार ने आज सशस्त्र बलों के परिवारों के 23 लाख से अधिक सदस्यों को दीवाली का उपहार देते हुए पूर्व सैनिकों के लिए ‘वन रैंक वन पेंशन’(ओआरओपी) की अधिसूचना जारी कर दी। रक्षा मंत्रालय के मुख्य प्रवक्ता सीतांशु कार ने यूनीवार्ता से इस आशय की पुष्टि की।

    कार ने ट्वीट किया,‘‘इंतजार खत्म। ओआरओपी के लिए अधिसूचना जारी हो गई है।’’ उन्होंने कहा कि वर्ष 2013 में सेवानिवृत्त हुए सैनिकों की पेंशन के आधार पर पूर्व सैनिकों की पेंशन निर्धारित की जायेगी और यह योजना एक जुलाई 2014 से लागू होगी। इससे पहले सरकार ने पांच सितंबर को वन रैंक वन पेंशन योजना लागू करने की घोषणा की थी जिसके बाद पूर्व सैनिकों ने जंतर मंतर पर भूख हड़ताल खत्म कर दी थी लेकिन धरना जारी रखा था।

    सरकार द्वारा जारी की गई अधिसूचना के अनुसार, OROP 1 जुलाई, 2014 से ही प्रभावी होगा, जिसके तहत सैनिकों को 4 बार 6-6 महीने में एरियल दिया जाएगा, यानि बकाया रकम चार किस्तों में दी जाएगी, हालांकि सभी विधवाओं को यह राशि एक ही किस्त में मिलेगी।

    खास बात यह है कि पेंशन की राशि‍ हर 5 साल पर फिर से तय की जाएगी, साथ ही वैसे स्वैच्छ‍िक सेवानिवृति लेने वाले रक्षाकर्मियों को भी यह योजना का लाभ दिया जाएगा।

    जिसके साथ सरकारी खजाने पर करीब 8,000 से लेकर 10,000 करोड़ तक का खर्च आएगा, बकाए के भुगतान पर करीब 10,000 से लेकर 12,000 करोड़ रुपये तक खर्च होंगे। हालांकि कल सरकार ने योजना के लागू करने की घोषणा कर दी थी और आज इसे लागू कर दिया गया।

  8. What is that each category? New concept. Are they going to divide as per trade? How can it be called as pension based on one rank.

  11. This is another tactics to delay payment to veterans. Other wise why the Govt has not attached the working out sheet of pension for each rank. It is now left to an agency who were bent upon not implimenting OROP. So this will take few for months to get it issued from buerocrats.

  12. Dear veteran, First of all we should congratulate the incumbent govt.for the notification it's really a diwali gift for 25 lakhs veterans.But this can not be called as OROP notification. With same number of service/rank an EXM who retires before 04/2014 and who retires after that will not get equal pension. Hence we must a strong supporting hand to Gen. Satbir Singh for the agitation to go on. Thanks.

  18. This is not a signed letter with attachment of pension table . So endless waiting
    still prevail over us. What a miracle ... as this is enough to damage anybody following
    anxiety on this issue and the word "table for each rank and category" is also like

  24. नई दिल्ली। सरकार ने पूर्व सैनिकों के लिए वन रैंक वन पेंशन की अधिसूचना को मंजूरी दे दी है। वन रैंक वन पेंशन सभी सैनिकों के लिए मान्य होगा,भले ही उन्होंने कभी भी सेना छोडी हो।

    हर दो साल में पेंशन की समीक्षा होगी। सरकार की घोषणा से करीब 25 लाख पूर्व सैनिकों को लाभ होगा। गौरतलब है कि अधिसूचना जारी होने में देरी से नाराज पदक प्राप्त पूर्व सैन्यकर्मियों ने देश भर में अगले हफ्ते से अपने सेवा पदक लौटा देने की घोषणा की थी।

    लेकिन रक्षा मंत्री मनोहर पर्रिकर ने कहा था कि दिवाली से पहले वन रैंक वन पेंशन की अधिसूचना जारी कर दी जाएगी।

  25. Dear Veteran, we should know where do we stand in the Indian milieu. We are the segment of people anybody can take for a ride easily under military discipline, Govt
    knows about it so the issue prolongs like anything. It is a question of lack of will and
    not for want of adequate funds. Take the case of Bihar where Govt announced Rs 1.25 lakh crores and yesterday Rs 80000 crores for J&K. But for exservicemen OROP implementation is always an issue on one or other reason. It is a wake up call for all of us.

  28. How much money has been taken from the poor people of the country to implement the ORFP Mr. Modi. How much more will you require to take from the poor to pay OROP. Mr Modi please note you are being fed with misled by the bureaucrats. Please be assured no veteran will ask for anything that will affect the lives of the less fortunate in the country of which you are the PM.

  30. The detailed pension tables are certainly locked up in the safe-lockers of Great BABUS
    They are not fools to give notification without worked out tables of calculations.In practical point of view it will not be OROP at all.There will be a meagre improvement(if at all it is really planned to give) in the pension.See carefully a sentence included by the great Chanakyas of Indian Government-Pension will be based on the average of minim and maximum pensions-DO NOT GET SHOCK TO READ FURTHER-If the present pension is more than the average pension the higher pension will be protected.What a tragedy.You all imagined BY OROP every rank and file will get at least 1500 -3000 more (PBORS).Top brasses of our forces and supremcourt judges,IAS babus are already getting one rank one pension.
