Implementation of One Rank One Pension

Improvement in pension is an ongoing process. Though the demand for One Rank One Pension (OROP) has been considered by various Committees in the past but it has not been found feasible to accept it. However, keeping in mind the spirit of the demand a Committee was set up under the Chairmanship of Cabinet Secretary to look into the issue of OROP and other related matters, which submitted its report on 30.6.2009. The Committee made seven recommendations to substantially improve pensionary benefits of Personnel Below Officer Rank (PBOR) and Commissioned Officers, which have been accepted by the Government. Department of Ex-Servicemen Welfare, Ministry of Defence has accordingly issued orders in implementation of the same vide Government letters dated 30.10.2009, 19.1.2010, 20.1.2010 & 8.3.2010 which are also available on www.pcdapension.nic.in. These orders have substantially increased the pension of pre 2006 retirees.

The yearly statement of booking of Defence Pension Expenditure during and up to the month of March ending (2009-2010 & 2010-2011) shows that the total amount allotted for Defence Pension Expenditure has been booked in full and no amount is lying unspent. Further as per the reports received from various pension disbursing authorities including Public Sector Banks/Private Sector Banks almost 98.5% cases requiring revision have been cleared. Only few cases are pending for revision, which are also being pursued for early settlement.

The process of revision of pension is being monitored regularly by the Department of Ex-Servicemen Welfare (ESW), Controller General of Defence Accounts (CGDA) and the Department of Financial Services.

Dated: 03.08.2011


OFFICE MEMORANDUM


Subject: Inclusion of names of members of family in the PPO and proof of age for additional quantum of family pension - requirement of certificates etc. — regarding.


The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s O.M. No.1/6/2008-P&PW(E), dated 22.06.10 and No. 1/21/91-P&PW(E), dated
20.01.93, regarding intimation of names of eligible family members by the pensioner or the spouse to the Head of Office for inclusion in the Pension Payment Order (PPO). It has been clarified in the O.M dated 22.06.10 that in cases where the pensioner or his/ her spouse has expired, the widowed or divorced or unmarried daughter  / parents / dependent disabled children / disabled siblings can themselves intimate such details to the pension sanctioning authority, who can process such cases if sufficient proof of entitlement is produced by the claimant and all other conditions for grant of family pension are fulfilled.


2. Attention is also invited to this Department’s O.M. No. 38/37/08-P&PW(A) dated 21.05.09, wherein detailed instructions regarding admissibility of documents as proof of date of birth of very old family pensioner who neither have a birth certificate nor any other corroborating document and whose date of birth is not available in the PPOs as well as in the office records of CPAO/ PAO have been circulated.


3. It is a matter of concern that a large number of complaints have been received in this Department from various pensioners associations and  individuals that the documents submitted by them to the Heads of Office concerned are not accepted by them. Complaints about inordinate delay of 2-3 years in settling the claims have also been received.


4. It is hereby reiterated that documents indicated in para 5 of O.M., dated 21.05.09 may be relied upon by the Heads of Office for admitting claims of the family pensioners. In addition to these, the Aadhaar number issued by Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) may also be accepted by the Heads of Office/ Pension Disbursing Authorities as valid proof of identity, it is also emphasized that the date of birth of the applicant may also be ascertained at the time of sanctioning family pension as it may be required for deciding the quantum of additional family pension when the family pensioner attains the age of 80 years or above..


5. In case the applicant is unable to submit any of the documents indicated above but claims family pension based on some other documentary evidence, such cases may be submitted to the administrative Ministry/Department. The decision of the administrative Ministry / Department in this regard will be final.


6. Requests have also been received for inclusion of the name of dependent disabled child(ren) in the PPO during the life-time of the pensioner. It is
hereby clarified that neither dependence nor disability are bound to be permanent in nature. Therefore, the name(s) of such child/ children may be
included in the details of family by the Head of Office on receiving a request from the pensioner or his/ her spouse. However, family pension would be sanctioned only when their turn comes to receive the family pension on the demise of the pensioner/ family pensioner, after examining the claim(s) of such disabled children for family pension subject to the fulfilment of conditions stipulated in the relevant provisions of CCS(Pension) Rules, 1972.


7. All Ministries / Departments are requested to give wide publicity to these clarifications.
