One Rank One Pension Latest NewsMilitary(Army) Personnel have been demanding the One Rank One Pay System for long time. Current pension system takes into consideration, the last drawn pay while deciding one’s pension amount. However, the One Rank One Pension term suggests that armed force personnel holding the same rank and same length of service must be given same pension, regardless the last drawn pay. Another important point in this scheme is that any hike in pension rate will be automatically implemented to the past pensioners of the military.

What are the Reasons for the Demand of One Rank One Pension

  1. If we take a look at the civilian employees, it is noticed that they retire at the age of 60. However in the scenario of Military employees the retirement age is very less. So, the family responsibility for such army military personnel becomes a matter of concern and the 2nd career option is not very easy
  2. Sepoys in Military retire at 35-38 years while NCO & JCOs retire at 40 to 45. Only 10 percent of Sepoys make it to the rank of JCOs
  3. Most of the Officers retire in Early 50’s
  4. If you know any army personnel, you will surely agree that military service is much tougher that any other job.
  5. Military personnel are posted to different areas from time to time and most of the places where they are posted to are risky for their lives. In other words – They keep their lives at stake
  6. Also there has been a gap of pension amount due to successive pay commission

Considering, all aspects mentioned above, one must agree that One Rank One Pension demand is genuine and must be addressed soon. Let’s find out how the government has responded so far.
