  1. NON RECEIPT OF ARREARS AND REVISED PENSION AGAINST ONE RANK ONE PENSION

    Respected Sir / Madam,

    1. I, have transferred to pension establishment wef 30 Apr 2015 on fulfil the terms and condition, after completion of 31 Years & 8 Months of service in the Army. My Basic pension for the Rank of Hony Lt is Rs. 15465/- per month.

    2. It is intimated that the Arrears and Revised Pension @ Rs. 16090/- (Basic) against OROP has been credited in my pension account during the month of Jul 2016, but the same has also been recovered on 30 Aug 2016. I have visited the CPPC Delhi on 01 Sep 2016 to know the reason for the said recoveries. The dealing staff of CPPC Delhi replied that the pensioners whose are retiree after 01 Jul 2014 are not eligible for arrears and revised pension against OROP vide circular No 555 dated 04 Feb 2016.

    3. I want to apprise that arrears and revised pension against OROP to retirees pre 01 Jul 2014 has been released by the CPPC as per circular No 555 dated 04 Feb 2016 and retiree after 04 Feb 2016 are getting the PPO as per revised (Pension) Table of OROP. So,we ask the Govt, what is the guilty of Retirees post 01 Jul 2014, whose are not entitled for the OROP. The retirees post 01 Jul 2014 are getting less pension to pre retiree in the same Rank and same Service, than how can say OROP.

    4. In view of above, all concerned are requested to raise the voice and do the needful to issue necessary instruction / direction by the Govt to release the arrears and revised pension against OROP in respect of retirees post 01 Jul 2014 at the earliest.

    with warm Regards,

    From Subedar Major Clerk (SD) and Honorary Capt Rajbir Singh
