One Rank One Pension not feasible-Minister informs Parliament

Pension improvement is an ongoing process. Considerable improvements have been made in the pensions of armed forces personnel.
A Committee was set up under the Chairmanship of Cabinet Secretary to look into the issue of 'One Rank One Pension and other related matters'. After considering all aspects of the matter, the Committee did not find it feasible to recommend One Rank One Pension. However, keeping in mind the spirit of the demand, several other recommendations to substantially improve pensionary benefits of Personnel Below Officer Rank (PBOR) and Commissioned Officers were made, which have been accepted by the Government and orders in implementation of all the recommendations have been issued. These are available at www.pcdapension.nic.in. Implementation of these orders has not only significantly reduced the gap between the past and the current pensioners but has also considerably improved the pension of ex-servicemen including disabled ex-servicemen.
As per yearly statement of booking of Defence Pension Expenditure during year 2009-10 & 2010-11, the entire amount allotted for Defence Pension Expenditure has been booked in full and no amount is lying unspent.
This information was given by Minister of State for Defence Shri MM Pallam Raju in a written reply to Shri Jyoti Mirdha and others in Lok Sabha today.

Reservation for Ex-Servicemen

Reservation for Ex-Servicemen
There is no provision for earmarking of posts exclusively for ex- servicemen therefore the data on the actual number of reserved posts and unfilled vacancies earmarked for the Ex-servicemen are not maintained. However, percentagewise reservations ranging from 10 to 24.5% of the total available vacancies in Group C & D posts in Government jobs and Public Sector Undertakings have been provided for the willing and eligible Ex- servicemen.
It is the responsibility of concerned organization to fill the vacant posts. However the government endeavours to explore every possible avenue for increasing employment opportunities for the Ex-servicemen through various initiatives including trainings and awareness programmes. Moreover, the State Governments have also been advised to fill up the vacancies reserved for Ex-servicemen expeditiously. Since the Department of Ex-servicemen Welfare has no mandate to monitor the job reservations for Ex-servicemen, the matter has been taken up with Cabinet Secretariat in consultation with Department of Personnel & Training to empower Department of Ex-servicemen Welfare to monitor the same through appropriate changes in relevant rules.
This information was given by Minister of State for Defence Shri MM Pallam Raju in a written reply to Shri Ananth Kumar and Shri Devji M. Patel in Lok Sabha today.

PROPERTY TAX EXEMPTION FOR DEFENCE PERSONNEL IN 8 CITIES.



The state Urban Development Department (UDD) has directed the civic bodies of Surat, Rajkot, Jamnagar, Bhavnagar, Junagadh, Vadodara, Ahmedabad and Gadhinagar to give tax exemption to properties owned by defence personnel. The UDD has given the direction through a letter dated July 2007.

This comes following several representations by the Army Welfare Association to the state government, seeking exemption to recognise their contribution to the nation. 

The benefit will be extended to only one residential property located within the municipal limits and not to any commercial property owned by them, officials said. The claimant should also furnish an affidavit saying that he has not been enjoying similar tax benefit in other part of the city. 

As per the Bombay Provincial Municipal Corporations Act, except for properties owned by charity organisations, all properties within civic limits are taxable. The government has asked the civic bodies to amend the Act to provide tax relief to the retired and serving personnel.

Implementation of One Rank One Pension

FROM THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT OF SRI.PALLAM RAJU MINISTER OF STATE FOR DEFENCE, IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT THERE IS NO FURTHER PROPOSAL FOR OROP, THAN WHAT IS GIVEN ALREADY.

Ministry of Defence
Implementation of One Rank One Pension
Improvement in pension is an ongoing process. Though the demand for One Rank One Pension (OROP) has been considered by various Committees in the past but it has not been found feasible to accept it. However, keeping in mind the spirit of the demand a Committee was set up under the Chairmanship of Cabinet Secretary to look into the issue of OROP and other related matters, which submitted its report on 30.6.2009. The Committee made seven recommendations to substantially improve pensionary benefits of Personnel Below Officer Rank (PBOR) and Commissioned Officers, which have been accepted by the Government. Department of Ex-Servicemen Welfare, Ministry of Defence has accordingly issued orders in implementation of the same vide Government letters dated 30.10.2009, 19.1.2010, 20.1.2010 & 8.3.2010 which are also available on www.pcdapension.nic.in. These orders have substantially increased the pension of pre 2006 retirees.
The yearly statement of booking of Defence Pension Expenditure during and up to the month of March ending (2009-2010 & 2010-2011) shows that the total amount allotted for Defence Pension Expenditure has been booked in full and no amount is lying unspent. Further as per the reports received from various pension disbursing authorities including Public Sector Banks/Private Sector Banks almost 98.5% cases requiring revision have been cleared. Only few cases are pending for revision, which are also being pursued for early settlement.
The process of revision of pension is being monitored regularly by the Department of Ex-Servicemen Welfare (ESW), Controller General of Defence Accounts (CGDA) and the Department of Financial Services.
This information was given by Minister of State for Defence Shri MM PAllam Raju in written reply to Shri K.E. Ismail in Rajya Sabha today.
