AGAIN THE SAME MISTAKE IS DONE. DIPLOMA & NON DIPLOMA SEPERATED.

6.2.88 The approach adopted by the VI CPC in determining X pay is agreed with. At the same
time the incentive structure needs to have a bearing with the qualifications.

Accordingly, this Commission recommends:

i. X pay for JCOs/ORs in Group X at ₹6,200 per month for all X trades which involve
obtaining a qualification which is equivalent of a diploma recognised by AICTE. This
amount is the difference in the minimum of the Pay level 6 (corresponding to Grade
Pay of ₹4200 in VI CPC), and Pay level 5 (corresponding to Grade Pay of ₹2800 in VI
CPC).

ii. X pay for JCOs/ORs in Group X at ₹3,600 per month (standard fitment of 2.57 on
the existing X pay of ₹1,400), for those currently in X pay, but not having a technical
qualification recognised by AICTE.

FROM 2012 THE DIPLOMA & NON DIPLOMA WERE MADE EQUAL THE GOVT. MAY NOT AGREE FOR THIS RECOMMENDATION. THIS MATTER SHOULD BE TAKENUP.

SCOVA meeting was held on 13th November 2015, Honourable Minister of State (PP) & Chairman SCOVA attended. Important decisions in respect of Pre-2006 Pensioners were taken
The 27th meeting of SCOVA was held on 13.11.2015. Honourable Minister of State (PP) & Chairman SCOVA attended. The following important points and decisions emerged in that meeting.
1. 9697 PPOs are still pending to be issued with Revised PPOs for Pre-2006 Pensioners.
  • Health Insurance scheme for pensioners in Non-CGHS Areas: Ministry of Health has informed that after consultations with various Ministries and Insurance Companies, a scheme for Health Insurance has been prepared for employees and pensioners. An EFC Memo would be circulated soon.
  • CGHS facilities to all P&T Pensioners: It was demanded that since on 22.08.2014 the Supreme Court had finally disposed of the SLP, the OMs of Health Ministry dated 1.8.1996 and 1.9.1996 must be withdrawn and all P&T Pensioners must be allowed into CGHS . Ministry of Health has informed that a proposal for extending the CGHS benefit to all P&T pensioners on par with other Government Pensioners has been sent for approval to Department of Expenditure.
  • Extension of benefit of upgraded Grade Pay to Pre-2006 Pensioners of S-12 Grade: Department of Expenditure has informed that the matter is under its consideration and a response would be sent to Ministry of Pension within a week.
  • Pension re-fixation to Pre-2006 Pensioners with less than 33 years of service: As the Revision Petition in theSupreme Court filed by the Government had been rejected by the Apex Court on 26.08.2015, the matter is under examination.
  • Refixation of pension from 1.1.2006: It is instructed to implement the orders dated 30th July, 2015 before 31.10.2015.

If the above statement of RM is correct, there will be heavy loss to the Ex-Servicemen. The revision clause in the OROP is going to become another controversy. Even in normal notifications the Baboos interpret wrongly and make us run piller to post. When the notification itself clearly speaks 'Revision after 5 years', Definitely they are going to create proble. Come on ........ take up this issue.

PRESS TRUST OF INDIA NEWS

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.

GOVT. HAS CLEARED THE OROP NOTIFICATION.

TODAY GOVT. HAS CLEARED THE MUCH AWAITED OROP NOTIFICATION. REVISION TO EFFECT  EVERY TWO YEARS. 

OROP Notification Expected on Monday

By Express News Service
NEW DELHI: The government is likely to issue the notification for One Rank One Pension (OROP) on Monday, a day after completion of the Bihar assembly poll process.
Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Friday claimed the scheme would be implemented before Diwali. The announcement comes on a day when protesting ex-servicemen decided to step up their protests and return their medals from November 9.
The government had, on September 5, announced the OROP scheme but an official notification was awaited. The government has cited the Model Code of Conduct for the Bihar polls as the reason behind the delay.
Even after the government announced the scheme, a section of veterans had continued their protest citing seven lacunae in the scheme. The threat to return medals is aimed at pressuring the government to notify OROP on Monday.
The protesting veterans accused Parrikar of ‘changing the goalpost’ frequently and claimed that “seven serious shortcomings” in the government’s model of OROP.
Even on earlier occasions, the veterans have returned their medals in protest against the delay in implementing their long-pending demand for OROP.
According to activist Commodore Lokesh Batra (retd), who had filed several of RTI applications, more than 30,000 gallantry and service medals have been returned to the President’s office since 2009.

AN IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO VETERANS

----- Forwarded Message -----
From: MG Kapoor <mgkapoor.1962@gmail.com>
To: Col.U N Mohapatra <colun.mohapatra@gmail.com>
Sent: Friday, 23 October 2015 8:51 PM
Subject: Re: Legal Case in the AFT

Dear Mohapatra,
Season's Greetings.
Trust this finds you in good health.
I wonder why you have forwarded the message to me, since I am myself am advocate and a very senior advocate, practising now for over 32 years.
I would have pleaded veterans case without charging fee had I been convinced of the cause TO MOVE THE AFT AT THIS STAGE. I learn the case is regarding the grant of OROP. If it be so, Brig Vidyasagar is doing the greatest DISSERVICE to the veterans cause and is undoing the efforts of the UESM and of all the persons associated with it and in particular the UNTIRING EFFORTS OF MAJOR GENERAL SATBIR SINGH AND GROUP CAPTAIN VINOD GANDHI. He is perhaps acting at the behest of the BJP leaders or else thr BJP leaders are using him. He is giving an excuse to the BJP Govt (Jaitley and Modi) to say, "Now that the case is subjudice, let's await the verdict before we issue the Notification".
Further, Brig Vidyasagar is being ill advised by Brig Srivastava. The aggrieved person (each veteran in this case) is first required to make a representation to the Government of his demand. It is only after the expiry of six months of such a representation,   in case the Government does not pass any order, that the aggrieved person can move the AFT. Yes, if the Government passes an Order, the person, if aggrieved by such Order, can move the AFT.
So, you cannot move the AFT immediately and if you do, the AFT would direct the applicants to first make representation to the Government.
Also, if and when such an OA (as such petitions are termed) is filed, the first thing that the Govt lawyer would say is, "the matter is under active consideration of the Government and is soon going to issue the Order".
Therefore, my advice is it is only prudent to await Govt Notification and only after studying it, move the AFT, if still aggrieved.
After the Notification is issued the Government cannot at least backtrack from that Order and can only improve upon it, if at all.
Please ask Brigadier Vidyasagar the number of members of HIS ESM, lawyers fee and only thereafter decide the contribution. This is to dispel his personal interest in the matter.
We are informed the Govt may issue Notification soon after the Bihar elections.
Please be informed, if we are aggrieved by such Notification I would do the case without charging any fee, if Maj Gen Satbir Singh and the Organising Committee of UESM asks me to move the AFT.
So I would request you all, including Brig Vidyasagar, NOT to undo the years long efforts of Major General Satbir Singh and his Team.
Hope you all prevail upon Brig Vidyasagar in this regard,
With best wishes,
MG

OUTCOME OF SCOVA MEETING HELD ON 13.10.2015 ON 33 YEARS LINKAGE PRORATA REDUCTION.

Standing Committee of Voluntary Agencies (SCOVA) held on 13th October, 2015


2. Extension of the benefits of DoP&PW OM No.38/37/08-P&PW(A) dated 28-1-2013 read with OM dated 30-7-2015 to pre-2006 Pensioners with less than 33 years of service.
K P&T PA while sending items/issues for inclusion in the Agenda for discussion in the 27th Meeting of SCOVA had requested that the issue of grant of modified parity in pension between pre and post 2006 Pensioners may be reviewed in its entirety , keeping in view the recommendations of 6th CPC, and the provisions of OM dated 28-1-2013 read with OM dated 30-7-2015 may be further liberalised and modified to extend the benefit to all pre-2006 Pensioners with less than 33 years of service , thereby ending pro rata reduction in pension for less than 33 years of service. It was also suggested that modified parity should be made applicable to all pre-206 pensioners irrespective of placement of the post from which they retired in a higher pay scale subsequent to their retirement, either from 1-1-1996 under 5th CPC or from 1-1-2006 under the 6th CPC, since several posts were placed in Higher Pay Scale under 5th and 6th CPCs and the Pensioner who retired from the same posts prior to their up gradation have been denied the benefit of modified parity in pension with reference to the Upgraded Pay Scale on par with those who retired from the Upgraded Posts.
However, the 2nd fresh Agenda item of the meeting notified by DoP&PW, did not deal with grant of modified parity in respect of pensioners retiring from upgraded posts and the item was confined to pro rata pension for less than 33 years of service.
When the item was taken up, the JS(PP) informed that the matter is sub judice and therefore cannot be discussed. Pensioners’ Associations wanted early resolution of this long pending grievance. The Secretary, (PP) intervened to say that the case was with DoE and the process of consultation is happening and he hoped to find a solution in about 2 months time.
