The 7th Pay Commission report on Thursday recommended ‘One Rank One Pension’ (OROP) for all employees, including defence personnel and civilian government employees, retiring before January 1 next year.

“This formulation will bring about parity between past pensioners and current retirees for the same length of service in the pay scale at the time of retirement,” read an official statement.

“The past pensioners shall first be fixed in the pay matrix being recommended by the Commission on the basis of pay band and grade pay at which they retired, at the minimum of the corresponding level in the pay matrix. This amount shall be raised to arrive at the notional pay of retirees, by adding number of increments he/she had earned in that level while in service at the rate of 3 percent,” it said.

The statement further added: “In the case of defence forces personnel, this amount will include military service pay as admissible.”

    The Commission has confused the govt. and the employees alike. Recommending OROP for all and sundry is a sure way to bring the govt. under pressure. They did not talk about the gross injustice by the 6th CPC who granted full pension to those completed 20 years service post 2006 while ignoring those who retired pre-2006. Employees reeling under the inflation feel let down by the measly hike and the good will that ought to have accrued to the govt. is missing. In short the commission has indirectly, unwittingly helped the opposition to make a point and the employees to grind their teeth.
