ONE MOR BJP MP SUPPORTS OROP.

Tarun Vijay meets Parrikar, demands 'one rank, one pension' for forces

Feb 26, 2015, 07.56PM IST TNN

The picture shows Tarun Vijay giving memorandum to the defence minister in his office in Raksha Mantralaya on 26th Feb 2015.
NEW DELHI: BJP MP Tarun Vijay, who is also member, parliamentary standing committee on defence and president, Uttarakahnd's Society to Help Armed Retired Personnel met defence minister Manohar Parrikar on Thursday and gave him a memorandum demanding that the long standing issue of 'one rank, one pension' be resolved in favour of the soldiers.

He said that if the government feels a crunch of funds, please take away the privileges given to the MPs and MLAs and give the funds to the forces so that their legitimate and logical demand to get 'one rank, one pension' is met. He said that soldiers give their best to the nation but they are forced to die early and run from pillar to post after retirement. Tarun Vijay told the minister that soldiers were disappointed by the UPA, they have great hopes from PM Modi and him, as a minister.

Tarun Vijay told media persons that Parrikar was very sympathetic to his demands and fully agreed that the government must act sympathetically to the long standing demands of the forces. He said, "as the defence minister I stand with my soldiers". Their demands will certainly receive sympathetic consideration.

Tarun Vijay also said that there are more than 3000 cases regarding disability pension pending in courts. Soldiers' basic pension was revised in line with 6 CPC recommendation from 24 Sep 2012 (instead of 1-1-2006) but disability pension has not yet been revised notwithstanding various letters written on the subject by various associations. CAT had given clear verdict but legitimate dues are being denied. Broad banding of disability pension has been denied in spite of AFT/ SC orders.

Immediately we contacted the PDA in this regard, they informed that the related documents are not submitted by the widow, hence the delay.

We immediately prepared the documents and guided her to submit the same to PDA .

The innocent widow was very happy of our action and thanked us for the timely help.

ONE RANK ONE PENSION IS FAST APPROACHING







OUR Govt this time has decided that the military personnel,  who retire at a much earlier age and undergo life-threatening postings, can not be equated with other government employees. 

 Both the Finance and Defence Ministers, Arun Jaitely and Manohar Parrikar, have approved the step. 

 OROP basically implies payment of uniform pension to personnel retiring in the same rank with the same length of service, irrespective of their date of retirement. 

 “Military pension as a category has been defined as separate from others based on a series of criteria. This takes into account the hardship factor like being posted in far-flung areas, risky life-threatening duties and long hours of hardship,“ a source said.


NEW DELHI: The much-awaited "one rank, one pension (OROP)'' for the armed forces is likely to be part of the Union budget, and could be implemented soon thereafter with the government defining "military pension'' as a category separate from other kinds of pension. 

An estimated Rs 8,000 crore is likely to be allocated by the government to fulfill its commitment to the over 25 lakh ex-servicemen, who have been stridently demanding OROP for several years without much success despite all political parties promising its implementation.
