It is true that “OROP arrears and Revision has been delayed substantially but a rays of hope is there. Upto some extent it may be true that govt is willfully depriving the veterans, as some people seems that and as per the disappointment experienced by the veterans. Actually the reality is something different from it. Some are saying that, Modi Govt will award OROP-2 just before the Central Election of 2024
The Government authority on a written communication with the Exservicemen Association has expressed that implementation of One Rank One Pension (OROP) has been done vide MoD letter no. 12(1)/2014/D (Pen/Pol)- Part-II dated 07.11.2015 and tables for fixation of pension were issued vide MoD letter no. 12(1)/2014/D(Pen/Policy)-Part-II dated 03.02.2016. This was the First time revision under OROP Scheme. The 2nd Revision after 5 Years was due in July 2019
The MoD has also expressed that the Hon’ble Supreme Court vide its order dated 16.03.2022 directed that in terms of the communication dated 7th November 2015, a re-fixation exercise shall be carried out from 1st July 2019, upon the expiry of five years. Accordingly the Govt authority has confirmed that “Revision of pension under OROP with effect from 01.07.2019 is under process”.
The 3 months extension of date for implementation of OROP-2, may be proved to be beneficial in a long run for veterans as some veterans opined that. According to the assurances given by the authority and published in the personal twitter profile of Maj Gen (Retd) Satbir Singh, we may get the arrears by 15 Dec 2022. Arrears for 3 and half years alongwith your increased pension may be credited in your bank in the New Year 2023.
Though we do not have any option other than waiting upto 15th Dec 2022, and it is expected that within the next three months period, all exservicemen and family pensioners of Indian Armed Forces will be benefitted with the OROP Revision and payment of arrears, if no further litigation arise.
