(a) & (b): The Government has implemented One Rank One Pension (OROP) for Defence Forces Personnel with effect from 01.07.2014. As on 30.09.2017 (compiled till 01.05.2018), a sum of Rs.10,795.40 crores has been released to 20,60,220 Defence Forces Pensioners / Family Pensioners in four instalments towards the arrears.

The Committee submitted its report on 26.10.2016. An Internal Committee has been constituted by the Government on 19.07.2017 to examine the recommendations of OMJC with respect to feasibility and financial aspects.
