One Rank One Pension (OROP)

Part of: Prelims and GS-II Policies and interventions

Context: The Supreme Court recently pointed out that the Centre’s exaggeration on the One Rank One Pension (OROP) policy presented a much better condition than what is actually given to the pensioners of the armed forces.

What is One Rank One Pension (OROP) policy?

  • OROP means the payment of the same pension to military officers for the same rank for the same length of service, irrespective of the date of retirement.
  • Before OROP, ex-servicemen used to get pensions as per the Pay Commission’s recommendations of the time when they had retired.
  • Uttar Pradesh and Punjab have the highest number of OROP beneficiaries.
  • Armed Forces Personnel who had retired till 30th june 2014 are covered under it.
  • The implementation of the scheme was based on recommendation of the Koshiyari committee, a 10 member all-party parliamentary panel formed under the chairmanship of Bhagat Singh Koshiyari.
