Judicial committee to address anomalies in OROP

New Delhi: The Union government had appointed a judicial committee headed by L. Narasimha Reddy, retired Chief Justice of Patna High Court, on 14 December last year to look into anomalies, if any, arising out of the implementation of the One One Pension (OROP) scheme. The committee submitted its report on 26 October, which is under examination.

The committee is supposed to suggest measures for the removal of anomalies that may arise in the implementation of the letter No. 12(1)/2014/D(Pen/Pol)/ Part-II dated 7 November 2015.

It should also propose to the government measures for the removal of anomalies that may arise out of inter-service issues of the three forces due to the implementation of order mentioned above. It must delineate the implications of OROP on service matters and any other matter referred to by the central government on the implementation of the OROP or related issues. In making its recommendations, the committee shall take into account the financial impact of its recommendations.

During the 2016-17, a sum of Rs 12,456 crore has been provided for expected expenditure on account of OROP.

The status of payment to the Defence Pensioners/ Family Pensioners on account of implementation of benefits, as on 03.11.2016 are as under:

Out of 20,63,529 pensioner beneficiaries, 1,27,561 defence pensioners and family pensioners are yet to get the benefits of OROP. The Public Grievance Cell in the department is receiving grievances of the pensioners and family pensioners, and taking up the matters with the department concerned for redress of their grievances. The disposal of grievances is monitored at the highest level in the government.
