Pension plan for forces by January: Antony

, by indianmilitaryveterans


Pension plan for forces by January: Antony

NEW DELHI: Defence minister A K Antony on Tuesday said the order for implementation of the recently-announced Rs 2,300 crore pension package for ex-servicemen and their families will be issued next month.

Addressing the parliamentary consultative committee on defence, Antony said this was the third time in the last four years that the government had "systematically improved the post-retirement benefits for ex-servicemen".

Ex-servicemen, however, are angry with the government for trying to project the Rs 2,300-crore pension package as the fulfillment of their long-pending demand for one-rank, one-pension (OROP), which basically means payment of uniform pension to personnel retiring in the same rank with the same length of service irrespective of their date of retirement.

The minister described the "twin tasks" of improving pension and medical benefits for ex-servicemen as "subjects of prime concern" and "an ongoing process".

Outlining the measures taken to improve healthcare benefits for retired soldiers, he said, "The government has been trying to expand the delivery mechanism and simplify procedures so that the ex-servicemen get the required medical benefits without hassles."
