ONE RANK ONE PENSION : WHOM TO BELIEVE, OROP SLIPS DAY BY DAY, ESM TO TAKE IT TO STREETS

WHOM TO BELIEVE, OROP SLIPS DAY BY DAY, ESM TO TAKE IT TO STREETS

Dear Colleagues,
Accompanied by IESM Governing Body members Hony Captains Nagendar Singh and Balwan Singh as well as Risaldar Om Parkash I met the Raksha Mantri today. While I did highlight some other points, OROP inevitably topped the agenda. The RM has all the details worked out, including the expenditure involved in implementing OROP separately for officers, JCOs/OR, families, disabled etc. He did mention the latest spanner thrown in by a related Supreme Court decision (in the case of Maj Gen SPS Vains) where the OROP has been mentioned. However, he appeared confident of resolving the issue without much problem.

The RM is in full grip of the situation. He exudes and inspires confidence. In a relatively short time he has acquired good understanding of the complex manpower structure of the defence forces. He is also fully supportive of the uniformed personnel.

Timeline for OROP? All clearances seems to be in place. Work is progressing apace. My own estimate is OROP will come latest by 26 May 2015, when the NDA completes one year in office.

I have given the farthest limit so that we do not again fall prey to disappointment. Having said that I am hopeful it will come much sooner than 26 May. Till then let us be patient.

Other Points

Some other points that were mentioned and handed over to the RM are:
1. Reservists’ Pension. They are entitled to 2/3 of the minimum pension of a Sepoy with 15 years’ service, but not less than Rs 3,500/- per month. As of now they are getting their entitlement. With OROP the minimum pension of a Sepoy will rise, necessitating up-scaling of the Reservists’ pension.Their number is very small.

2. Pension of pre-2006 Hony Naib Subedars. As of today, Hony Naib Subedars of post 1.1.2006 era are getting the pension of a regular Naib Subedar but the pre- 2006 retirees are getting a Havildar’s pension. Number of the affected persons being small and finite, this anomaly needs to be removed.

3. Pension of Majors. It was highlighted that concept of OROP as well as Supreme Court ruling speak against creating a dividing line for grant of pension. Therefore, while considering grant of a Lt Colonel’s pension to a pre 16.12.2004 Major, there should be no further dividing line based on 1.1.1996. Officers that retired prior to 1.1.1996 in the rank of Major are only about 700 in number and should not be subjected to any discrimination. The point was registered.

4. Minimising Court Cases. It was highlighted that till the Third Pay Commission, there were practically no court cases. Any pay commission anomaly that was perceived was discussed and resolved between the Army Chief, Defence Secretary and their assisting staff. That system needs to be revived.

In this connection I also highlighted that when a military person seeks legal intervention, he is actually a representative of a larger group. There should be a provision where the relief provided to an individual should automatically extend to others similarly affected. The RM clarified that legally, since it is not a PIL, the individual fights for himself and the courts cannot give that benefit to others. However, an administrative mechanism can be put in place for extending such benefit to others. He further added that he is already having it examined for implementation. This showed how positively he is disposed toward resolving the soldiers’ problems.

Best regards,
Lt Gen Raj Kadyan
Chairman IESM

One Rank One Pension – OROP is foregone conclusion and the next step is issuance of notification for OROP and the tables

One Rank One Pension – OROP is foregone conclusion and the next step is issuance of notification for OROP and the tables.

Raksha Mantri assured that the notification for OROP will be issued soon…

OROP: MY DEMAND : ” DISMANTLE MOD LOCK STOCK & BARREL “

EVERY THING IN INDIA WILL MOVE

Dear Members

IESM has been getting calls from veterans who wanted to know the correct position of OROP. Veterans are very confused about the various mails floating on the net giving different status of OROP.

IESM sought an appointment with RM to learn the real situation from RM himself. IESM delegation consisting of four members Maj Gen Satbir Singh, Maj Gen AJB Jaini, Gp Capt VK Gandhi and Hony Lt K Pandey met Sh Manohar Parikkar at 1300h on 14 Apr 15.

RM was forthcoming and explained the latest situation. OROP file has been moving upwards as predicted. At the last stage an official from Finance Ministry has put an observation about the SC ruling regarding SPS Vains case. RM was fully apprised of the SPS Vains case and told the delegation that this observation is not applicable to OROP case. Hence suitable reply will be given on file by MOD and file will be sent back for approval.

RM further stated that he is working to issue Government letter latest by June end that is within one year of NDA Government being sworn to power. He sounded very confident that OROP is foregone conclusion and the next step is issuance of notification for OROP and the tables. He assured IESM delegation that the notification for OROP will be issued soon.

IESM delegation requested RM that stake holders must be involved in finalizing Government letter and the relevant tables for OROP. He confirmed that calculations for his note were done by Armed Forces pay cells and he would keep this in mind.

IESM delegation came back fully assured that OROP is in safe hands of RM Sh Manohar Parikkar who will make sure that OROP will see the day light after 30 yrs of struggle.

Dear Veterans have a drink and celebrate.

Regards

Nobody is in a position to come out with the details of the 7th CPC

Nobody is in a position to come out with the details of the 7th CPC – www.govtstaffnewsportal.in

 

“The recommendations of the 7th CPC which has to be implemented from the 1st of January 2016. But till now, a crystal clear picture has not emerged about the new pay scales and pay structures, and the date of submission to the government. Nobody is in a position to come out with the details of the 7th CPC.”

Annual Increment for Central Government Employees

 

Last week, the Central Government has issued orders regarding the release of an additional 6% Dearness Allowance to the central government employees and 6% Dearness Relief to the pensioners from 1st January 2015. It turned out to be a sigh of relief for all of them as the government was a bit late in announcing the DA. Now the total DA stands at 113% of the basic pay. The employees will be paid arrears for the months of January, February and March. As for now, expectations and excitement are temporarily over….

 

The next episode to begin is the Annual Increment, which has to be given in the month of July every year as recommended by the 6th Central Pay Commission. From July, central government employees are entitled to receive 3% of their basic pay as annual increment. As we are aware that 6th CPC had given more financial benefits than previous pay commissions, by introducing various changes in the pay structures and pay scales. The calculations regarding annual increment were also changed. In the past, the annual increment was a fixed amount and was given on the appointment month every year. But in the 6th CPC, the annual increment was fixed at 3% of the basic pay and that to be given on a common date for all central government employees irrespective of their appointment date. It also clarified that, any amount which falls between 1 and 10 rupees, the total should be rounded to the next 10 rupees. For eg: If an employee’s increment is Rs. 401.00, the fixation should be Rs.410.00, while for an employee, who gets Rs. 400.90, the fixation should be Rs.400.00 only. This increment is automatically added to their basic pay every year.

 

As far as the employees are concerned, this year’s annual increment will be the last in this particular pay commission. July also makes the date for announcing the next installment of DA to the employees. As per the data received till now, and the trend regarding price index, continues, another 6% of DA is expected from July 2015. This makes the total DA at 119%.

 

From the employees point of view, they are eagerly awaits the recommendations of the 7th CPC which has to be implemented from the 1st of January 2016. But till now, a crystal clear picture has not emerged about the new pay scales and pay structures, and the date of submission to the government. Nobody is in a position to come out with the details of the 7th CPC.

 

Let’s wait and see what happens in the coming months!!!
