    Officers have got their more than expectations. The JCOs,PBOR & HCOs were totally dependent on Maj Gen Satbir Singh that he will look after for all ranks,but he took the lion’sshare for only officers. Even in service also they concerned only their benefits rather than to protect welfare of other ranks whom they r comanding. Officers should fight for welfare of jawans,JCOs & HCOs. We are quite surprised how the government agreed as it’s PM’s slogan that sabka saath,sabka vikas & sabka vishwas. Government should initiate immediate steps for welfare of other ranks.

    • Rajeev 1 year ago

      Absolutely correct. This circular is only for officers. For JCOs and ORs it is One Rank Different Pension.

    • PK Singh 1 year ago

      Some PBOR are so ignorant.  Maj Gen Satvir had no role to play in calculation of OROP.  It was solely decided by Ministry of Defence, and commensurate with the Basic Pay of all individuals, irrespective of ranks.

  • I am dependent daughter of HLt Subedhar 1967 retiree sofar this month only pension has been credited to my account. No Arrears has been received.

  • Sadiq Khan 1 year ago

    Really it is good decision to pay arrears before 15 Mar 23. It was ordered by Supreme Court before but Govt didn’t obeyed. Any how still time to mend the mistake.

  • Nagarathinamk 1 year ago

    Sir, according to the circular no 666 and 667 from the PCDA there is no any benefit for the jco ranks and honorary commission JCOS.
    Also OROP arrears amount has not been credited to the regular RETD defence service officers also.
    I can’t understand how they were prepared that 666 circular chart.
    Please clarify with the defence department.
