OROP Latest News : May we Expect OROP Arrears by 15 September 2022

“OROP is now a day dream” it is a mouth word of exservicemen fraternity. But 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”.

But till date no indication of OROP revision has been found at any level by the Ex-servicemen Organisation neither any table of fixation published by the Govt till date. The cutoff date 15th September is not too far. Within the next week the date will be crossed.  What the next ? Legal Notice has been served by Exservicemen organisation to the MoD on 12th August to implement the orders of Supreme Court.   Even after passing one month , the Govt authority has not responded till date.  The Exservicemen Organisation has twitted that if the Govt failed to implement the OROP revision as per direction of Hon’ble Supreme Court, a Contempt of Court case may be filed against the MoD.

After a long waiting, the Govt has agreed to implement the OROP 2, and the Appex Court has granted extension the date of implementation by 15 December 2022 . We may expect that the Govt is working at their level to implement the orders of the Supreme Court and veterans will be benefitted with the OROP-2 revision and arrears soon by 15 Dec 2022.
