UPDATE ON MINIMUM PENSION FROM 1.1.2006 - BY MAJ.NAVDEEP

Chain mails are floating referring to a circular issued by the PCDA(P) stating that the MoD has issued orders concerning the implementation of the decision of the Supreme Court regarding grant of arrears from 01-01-2006 rather than 24-09-2012. The news is incorrect. The said circular only concerns defence civilian pensioners based on the letter issued for civilian pensioners by the Department of Pension and Pensioners’’ Welfare (DoPPW). It may kindly be understood that the PCDA(P) has no authority to issue circulars on its own till the time the MoD issues a Government letter to the said effect. However, the good news is that the MoD is also working on the same and the letter should be out soon. Some added time after the issuance of the DoPPW letter was expected to be taken by the MoD since there are certain additional issues to be addressed by the MoD over and above the ones in the DoPPW letter and a mutatis-mutandis letter could not have been issued. For example, the MoD is to add the Military Service Pay (MSP) also in addition to the elements in the civil letter and then unlike civil pensioners, separate tables would have to be ultimately prepared by the Defence Accounts Department for various ranks and different categories which are not applicable on the civil side. Moreover, the benefit of the upward revision would be differently applied to ranks other than Commissioned Officers since they had been granted pensions based on the maximum of 5th CPC scales fitted into the 6th CPC pay bands with effect from 01-07-2009 while officers and all civil employees were granted pensions based on minimum of pay of the pay bands. The comprehensive letter alongwith comprehensive tables would definitely be issued in due course and we would have to be a little patient about the same.

Raj Kadyan hopeful of announcement on OROP scheme on Aug. 15



New Delhi, Aug. 11 : Defence expert Lieutenant General (Retd.) Raj Kadyan on Tuesday said he was hopeful that the government would make an announcement on implementation of the One Rank, One Pension (OROP) scheme on August 15.
Lieutenant General (Retd.) Kadyan, along with a delegation of ex-servicemen, had met Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley to discuss the OROP issue yesterday.
The meeting with the Finance Minister was very positive, he is a patient listener. We put forth our points, we asked about the status where it stands today. He has one or two issues of worry from his side to which we adequately responded. We made it very clear that no dilution in the definition that has been worked out by the Koshyari Committee and accepted on the floor of the Parliament will be acceptable to ex-servicemen,” Lieutenant General (Retd.) Kadyan told ANI.
“He then clarified that it is matter of days not months. If I go by my own assessment on this, we can hope something to come on 15th August, we are very hopeful. Otherwise the agitation will continue,” he added.
The One Rank, One Pension scheme has been a long-standing demand of ex-servicemen. It seeks to ensure that a uniform pension is paid to defence personnel, who retire at the same rank with the same length of service, irrespective of their date of retirement. (ANI)

NEW DELHI: Agitating military veterans, on a relay hunger strike for the last 57 days, are now hoping that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will announce the long-delayed implementation of one rank, one pension (OROP) from the ramparts of the Red Fort on August 15.

Some ex-servicemen say there "are concrete indications" that the government will announce OROP on Independence Day since "the file, after some heated disagreements between the finance and defence ministries, has finally reached the PMO".
