OROP: Govt may extend tenure of judicial panel

The Centre informed Delhi High Court Thursday that the tenure of the one-member judicial commission to look into the public hearing of One Rank One Pension scheme will be extended, as representations filed by ex-servicemen and others are yet to be submitted to the Commission.
The central government’s standing counsel Anurag Ahluwalia, appearing on behalf of Defence Ministry, told the court that “over 2,500 representations” had been received by the ministry so far. “The representations are now being processed, and will then be submitted to the judicial commission,” said Ahluwalia, adding that the panel’s tenure “would have to be extended”.
Former Chief Justice of Patna High Court L Narsimha Reddy was appointed the judicial commissioner to look into the implementation of the OROP scheme. The commission was expected to submit its recommendations within six months and its tenure is set to expire on June 14.
Ex-serviceman S P Singh filed a PIL before the high court earlier this week, seeking orders to have an “effective public hearing” on the issue and claiming that the “people were not informed” how to submit their representations. The court, however, noted that a particular address had been allocated to the commission, and the representations could be sent via post.

  1. Approved orop - an approved law of orop in 2013 -14 has been delayed till nov 2015 .A truncated orop was designed , drafted and issued with so many inconsistencies and anomalies ,with a proviso of judicial comm to resolve.
    This appt of Comm was delayed and now it is being extended with the PIL in High Court.
    All sorts of cobwebs and complex knots !
    Instead of resolving simple issues of soldiers pay & pensions by the huge est of administrative departments of MOD of GOI ,Commissions are resorted as delaying methods ( DM statement in parliament on that issue of helicopters purchases ).Having appointed JC how can MOD arbitrate or control those 2500 representations from veterans.
    Let JD do its work without interference .
    * All ,these are anticipated and expected .How crafty & skilled are those bureaucrats who are putting every body in circles incl well intended netas ; by these tricks.
    ** orop is only a small issue of some increase of pensions for a short period of one and half yrs from Jul 2014 to Dec 2015 ,with uncertain future of 7 CPC not getting tied up with these on going
    Contentions of some bureaucrats.
    *** I only hope these crafty bureaucrats do not hold up 7 CPC implementations to soldiers with visible delay of implementation of the judicial orders dispensing with rule 33 yrs Svc for min pension.
