New Delhi: The Union government had taken the historic decision to implement OROP for retired defence personnel in November 2015. This fulfilled the long-standing demand of the retired soldiers after 42 years and benefited over 18 lakh war widows and former servicemen.

In pursuance of the order issued on 7 November 2015, detailed instructions, along with OROP tables have been issued today.

The annual recurring financial implication on account of implementation of OROP at the current rate will be approximately Rs 7,500 crore.

The arrears from 1 July 2014 to 31 December 2015 will be approximately Rs 10,900 crore.

86% of the total on account of OROP will benefit the JCOs/ORs.

of arrears and revision of pension under OROP is to be made by the pension disbursing authorities in 4 installments, except for family pensioners and pensioners in receipt of gallantry awards who will be paid arrears in one installment.

The total increase in the defence Budget for pensions is estimated to go up from Rs 54,000 crore (BE 2015-16) to around Rs 65,000 crore (proposed BE 2016-17), thereby increasing the defence pension outlay by about 20%.
