Dear all Vet Bros,
The HSC in their judgement of 16.3.2022 reiterated that there is no ambiguity in Govt's OROP orders of 07.11.2015 and the Re-fixation or Revision OROP to be carried out every 5 years (was due on 01.7.2019). The Govt (DESW), therefore, was duty bound to revise/refix OROP from 01.7.2019 and also pay arrears to all concerned within 3 months. That deadline expired on 15.6.2022, and the Govt did not release the said orders even on 16.6.2022.
The IESM who was in the forefront and was the appellant before the HSC was unhappy that their main plea that the OROP in full as per the Committee OROP definition was not accepted and the HSC ruled that the Govt order on the subject stands valid. Aggrieved, therefore, the appellant IESM lodged a RP on 13.4.2022 (purportedly) in HSC registry. Therefore, the RP and its effect on the judgement and or its implementation part is supposedly is NIL.
Interestingly, the IESM, had urged the Govt as late as 08.6.2022and submitted inputs :-
a) the PBORs max scale of pay was not considered while fixing the OROP as on 01.7.2014 in terms of Govt orders of 2013 and this may be now considered.
b) the OROP of officers of Lt Col/Cols & above was to be done with MF 2.67 instead of 2.57 wef 1.1.2016 and this may be considered now.
It is past the HSC deadline 15.6.2022 and the OROP orders yet to come. The Govt will have many reasons for delay:-
i) They were busy in evacuation work in Russia/Ukrein war.
ii) They were busy in state/RS elections.
iii)Some VVIPs were called for ED questioning and its effect.
iv) They were busy in Agnipath scheme and its effect.
v) The CDS appointment process is on.
iv) They are now busy with President/VP election work.
Therefore, they will request the HSC to grant more time, say another 3 months, for implementation of 16.3.2022 judgement.
The HSC normally would not say No to above submissions.
So, the OROP re-fixation/revision SAGA rolls over to next 3 months?
Or The Govt may release the OROP orders any time soon.
PS: This is not any official version. But only my individual view. ESM bros please be cool cool. OROP will be revised and arrears will be paid. In due course of time. Nothing to worry.
PLEASE DEA ALL, PLEASE RELAX
