One rank one pension for defence Personnel


Meeting a long-pending demand of over a crore defence veterans and 12 lakh serving jawans, the government substantially increased the pension of ex-servicemen.

The new, revised pension would be implemented beginning this month, Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee told the Lok Sabha while presenting the Budget for 2009-10.

Ex-servicemen organisations have been demanding "One Rank One Pension" (OROP) arising out of pay commission recommendations, as they felt that there was a disparity in the amount to personnel holding the same rank and service record, but retiring at different point of time.
