One rank one pension : Removing Anomaly in Pensions of Ex-Servicemen

Removing Anomaly in Pensions of Ex-Servicemen

Removal of anomaly, if any, in the pension being given to the various categories of ex-servicemen is a continuous process. Such anomaly is redressed, as and when it comes to the notice of the Government.

The policy of “One Rank One Pension” has been adopted by the Government to address the pension disparities. The modalities for implementation of OROP are under consideration of the Government. It will be implemented once the modalities are approved by the Government.

A Pension Grievance Cell exists in the Department of Ex-Servicemen Welfare. Grievances received by this Cell are examined and redressed in coordination with the agencies concerned in the matter. A system of holding Pension Adalat is in place to provide a credible forum for redressal of grievances of the defence pensioners. Officers concerned of every organisation involved remain present in the Adalats and the grievances are redressed on the spot. A computerized pension enquiry project “Suvigya” has been developed by the Controller General of Defence Accounts (CGDA). It is an online pension enquiry system which would enable the ex-servicemen to know their entitlements of pension. A pensioners’ grievance cell exists in the Office of Principal Controller of defence Accounts (Pension), Allahabad.

This information was given by Minister of State for Defence Rao Inderjit Singh in a written reply to Shri D.P Tripathi in Rajya Sabha on Thursday, 30 July 2015.

  1. OROP, after the implementation I am getting Rs 2306/- less than a contemporary, with the same number of put in.I have completed 15 years and 19 days service. I was discharged in the year 1980 and am a Group II Corporal. Whenever there is a hike, I found, on enquiring from my batch mates, that my salary was lesser than that of theirs.The last hike prior to the OROP, I had visited AFRO, N.Delhi, when I found an anomaly in my pension, and they immediately set it right, by directing my bank (SBI, Ernakulam) to make the necessary correction. I have put up my case to both CDA (Pensions) Allahabad and AFRO (Welfare Wing Pre’96), for the current anomaly and waiting for them to do the needful.
