Under Examination.

Recommendation

2.2.13 RESERVIST PENSION TO RESERVISTS RELEASED FROM SERVICE COMPULSORILY PRIOR TO COMPLETION OF PENSIONABLE COLOUR + RESERVE SERVICE:

The Committee hence recommends that the decision as rendered by the Supreme Court in Baldev Singh’s case (supra) be implemented in the same terms and all such similarly placed affected personnel be released “Reservist Pension”. All pending and future cases in Courts and Tribunals be conceded and all appeals be withdrawn.

Status:

Under Examination:

On completion of the prescribed combined colour and reserve qualifying service, of not less than 15 year, a reservist pension equal to 2/3rd of the lowest pension admissible to a Sepoy, but in no case less than Rs. 375/- p.m (now revised @Rs. 9000/-p.m) may be granted. On the recommendation of 4th Pay Commission, Pension Regulation was amended by linking the pension of reservist to that of a Sepoy, thereby automatic increase in the pension of a reservist with increase in the pension of a Sepoy.

There is no parity in pension of reservist and Sepoy of regular Army as there is difference in nature of their qualifying service. They are not entitled for regular pension or equivalent pension of Regular Army.

However, the issues ‘whether the benefit of One Rank One Pension (OROP) is to be extended to Reservist’ referred to Judicial Committee on OROP vide Govt. letter dated 20.7.2016 to examine and make recommendation. The Committee submitted its Report on 26.10.2016which is further being examined by an Internal Committee.

The issue raised in the Expert Committee has been examined and linked with the reference made to the One Member Judicial Committee (OMJC) on OROP as to whether the benefits of OROP is to be extended to Reservists. Accordingly, it has been decided to keep the matter pending till the decision on report of OMJC is taken.
