Union Cabinet Approves (OROP) One Rank One Pension Scheme

One Rank One Pension

One Rank One Pension 2022: OROP implies a uniform pension for defence personnel retiring in the same rank with the same length of service, regardless of their date of retirement. Before the implementation of One Rank One Pension Scheme, the computation of pension was linked to the pay drawn by the personnel in a particular pay scale at the time of his/her retirement. Pay scales are revised to the higher side generally on the recommendation of Pay Commissions as such the personnel retiring after the revision of the pay scales got more pension than those who had already retired  hence the gap remained in the pension of the past and present retirees.
