Supreme Court Dismissed the Plea to Review its Orders on One Rank-One Pension Scheme

One Rank-One Pension Scheme

NEW DELHI: On Friday, the Supreme Court rejected a plea seeking a review of its order upholding the One Rank-One Pension principle adopted by the Centre in its 2015 communication issued to the Chiefs of three defense forces, saying it neither suffers from any Constitutional infirmity nor is it arbitrary.

A bench comprising Justices DY Chandrachud, Surya Kant, and Vikram Nath said “Application for listing the review petition in open Court is rejected. We have carefully gone through the review petition and the connected papers. We find no merit in the review petition and the same is accordingly dismissed,”

In March, The Top Court upheld the One Rank-One Pension principle adopted by the Centre.

It had said that the Bhagat Singh Koshyari committee report, tabled in the Rajya Sabha on December 10, 2011, furnishes the historical background, the reason for the demand, view of the Parliamentary Committee which proposed the adoption of OROP for personnel belonging to the armed forces and beyond this, the report cannot be construed as embodying a statement of governmental policy.
