"One Rank One Pension : Main aspects addressed."

With ex-servicemen protesting over the one-rank one-pension issue, Government today said the main aspects of the demand have already been addressed which are benefiting around 12 lakh personnel.

"The main aspects have already been addressed in-principle and there has been a substantial addressing of the issue and I think 12 lakh personnel below officer rank have benefitted because of these decisions," Minister of State for Defence M M Pallam Raju said here.
Ex-servicemen have been demanding equal pension for personnel retiring from the same rank irrespective of their date of retirement. Persons retiring before the pay commission cut-off date get lesser pension than those retiring after that date.
Recently, while replying to a Parliamentary query, Raju had stated that government had accepted several recommendations of a Committee looking into the 'one rank one pension' demand to improve benefits of armed forces pensioners.
Among the recommendations were revision of Lt Generals' pension after carving out a separate pay scale for them and bringing parity between pension of pre- and post-October 10, 1997 for pensioners of personnel below officer rank. Fifth Pay Commission was implemented on that day.
He had said that around 12 lakh pensioners have benefitted by the government's decisions.
