The new OROP Pension Table Revised for Army Ex-Servicemen. Know who and how many will benefit, how much amount increased: The Modi government on 30th December 2022 approved a proposal to amend the provisions of ‘One Rank, One Pension’ for defence forces personnel and family pensioners. Ex-servicemen had been demanding this for a long time.
The ex-servicemen had also approached the Supreme Court regarding this. This benefit will be available to family pensioners as well as widows of soldiers martyred in war and disabled pensioners. Due to this, the burden on government funds will be ₹8450 crore per year. The new OROP Pension Table will be implemented from July 1, 2019.
Under this, arrears for the period from July 2019 to June 2022 will also be given to the beneficiaries, for which an amount of ₹23,638.07 crores will be given. This revised OROP Pension Table 2023 has brought a smile to many Indian Army Ex-Servicemen pensioners.

Army personnel who have retired till June 30, 2019, will be covered under this amendment. However, those who have taken premature retirement will not be covered under this. See the New Indian Army Pension table for E.S.M:
Pension/Arrear Dues will be paid in four instalments
The dues will be paid in four half-yearly instalments. However, dues will be paid in one instalment to all family pensioners including recipients of special/liberalized family pensions and gallantry awardees. According to the statement, the estimated annual financial impact has been calculated at ₹8450.04 crore, which is a 31% inflation relief.
A total of 25 lakh pensioners will be benefitted from the monetary benefits. The scheme will benefit 25.13 lakh pensioners and family pensioners. This includes 4.52 lakh new pensioners. The decision was taken at a meeting of the Union Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The revised pension scheme will be implemented in advance from July 1, 2019, the Defence Ministry said.
