No One Rank One Pension

No 'one rank one pension' for ex-servicemen, say sources
New Delhi: In what is likely to be a big disappointment for the ex-servicemen community, the PM-appointed pay panel is unlikely to recommend One Rank One Pension. Sources have told CNN-IBN that the panel led by the Cabinet Secretary is keen to push for the concept of modified parity, which means new pay grades will be fixed specifically for pension purposes.
It is likely to agree on common pay scales for Junior Commissioned Officers and ORs, enhancement of widow pension, and a green signal for Non-Functional upgradation to commissioned officers.

Comment: With Chidambaran as FM, the OROP is not likely to be granted. The UOI must be contemplating as to how to neuter the Rank Pay ruling by the Supreme Court- Clearly it is case of ill-treatment of armed forces by bureaucrats which was amply brought out by the Judges. This modified pension parity is a ruse to dump the Armed Forces.
