Army Pension Hike : Jawans to get Rs 550-800, Officers 570-3750

Against the backdrop of criticism by retired military personnel, Defence Ministry today said the recent pension package of Rs 2,300 crore for the ex-servicemen was a step towards achieving the goal of one rank-one pension (OROP) in future

The exact calculation of the amount of money by which the retired personnel would benefit is expected to be done within next two days, they said.
The sources said after the recent announcements, the pension of jawans will increase by Rs 550 to 800 whereas the pension of officers would register a hike between Rs 570 to Rs 3750.

The hike in pension of personnel below office rank (PBOR) will be between 9.7 to 13 per cent whereas for officers it would be between 10 to 28 per cent.

Ex-servicemen had expressed their unhappiness with the pension hike announced by the government on Monday, saying it amounted to "wrong and deceitful" treatment of their long- pending 'one rank-one pension' demand and vowed to continue struggle for their rights.
The sources said this was the third time that the government has hiked the pension of the retired defence forces since the award of Sixth Central Pay Commission in 2008.
They said a total of 13 lakh jawans would benefit from the government's announcements at a cost of Rs 1,400 crore per annum. The government announced the decision to address the pensionary issues of ex-servicemen on Monday.
"The gap in pension of pre-and post-January 2006 retiree jawans will be bridged by determining the pension of pre- January 2006 pensioners on basis of notional maximum for ranks and groups across three Services as in case of post-January 2006 retirees," it had said.

Nothing is mentioned about pension hike for JCOs. Is the 2 yrs weightage is applicable to them. Please clarify.

pensioners getting minimum pension of Rs 3500/- PM are not getting any thing every time pensions are increased because their service is less than 15 is a great injustice when govt did not allow them to serve 15 years.they were released from army against their wishes.
