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.

  6. OROP to be pay whose pension below one lakh. What is the necessary who draws pension above one lakh.

  7. I do not understand one thing that whenever press conference to TV and print media or presentation given to PM or RM, our Officers are addressing as JAWAN to get sympathy of whole country men and get the job done whatever they want in favour of them but the moment Jawan ( ORs/JCOs) go to canteen , ECHS and other places, they make difference and address Jawans and officers.This is very funny thing.

    • Dear SK Dutta,

      You are a mischievous fellow, trying to bring a division between officers and JCOs and OR.

      How many presentations to the PM or RM have you attended?

      In the Canteens and elsewhere , it is marked as Officders, JCOs and ORs. There is no such thing as a jawan as ranks are concerned in the Forces. Jawan is a generic Hindi word. So much for your professional knowledge. In any case how did you enter a canteen?

      Guys like you are looking to somehow put down the Forces; you are obviously a lover.

  8. The regular commission Capt pension has been brought at the level of 7 yr service which is unfair for those put in 22 yrs-30yrs service. It requires relook. If data is blank then the pay of the affected officers should be fixed notionally then pension decided.

    • No need to revise the pension of a officer, who already getting lakhs of rupees as pension per month……OROP should be given to Jawans that too upto Hawaldar ranks j below

      • Dear Venkatesh ji
        Why and how do you
        make a statement like this?
        You should be more concerned about your case only, what others are getting according to their recruitment standards only.
        Did any one stopped you entering NDA??

    • All Defence combetant members irrespective of service & the Ranks held/served till superannuation do not deserve any OROP at all. They are as it is covered under Central pay commission. DA also is given time to time so what are they crying for. It should only be considered for old pre matured Ex servicemen discharged under 40 yrs of age.
