The Staff Side of the National Council, Joint Consultative Machinery (JCM), has demanded the government and the VII Central Pay Commission that the One Rank One Pension announced for the military pensioners should also be implemented for the Central Government pensioners.

Shiv Gopal Mishra, Secretary, Staff Side has written letters on this point to the Chairman VII CPC, Justice A.K.Mathur. OROP was existing for High Court and Supreme Court Judges as also for CAG earlier. Now it is extended to defence service retirees.

The demand of the Staff Side is fully justified and should be granted. There is no justification not to extend the OROP to the CG Pensioners.
