Anomaly in OROP Tables for JCOs OR

Negative effects have been seen in the average pension of JCOS OR. Majority of JCOs/OR are not getting benefit for a single penny wih this OROP-2. Table No 7 and 8 shows the pension for Gp X and Y JCOs/OR of regular Army Navy and AF personnel. In this tble it has been seen that there is no differrence in pension of two or more ranks. Hav/equivalent ranks with service from the length of 15 to 22 years are getting same pension. the majority of retired Armed Fces personnel belongs to Hav/Sgt/PO and equivalent rank who have completd their coloured service are not benefitted with a single Penny There s no incrreas in pension since 2014 ? The questions have been throughn to the oD by the ESM organisations but govt authority is still silent. Lets hope for the good days when govt will consider the anomaly and necessary rectification be carried out.
