Paramilitary Officers Protest At Jantar Mantar | One Rank One Pension

Retired personnel of various paramilitary forces on Monday (November 2) began a three-day ‘dharna’ here demanding one rank one pension (OROP) benefits and other privileges under the ex-servicemen category. An association of former officials of forces like Central Reserve Police Force, Border Security Force, Indo-Tibetan Border Police, Central Industrial Security Force and Sashastra Seema Bal began the sit-in at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi to press their demands which they said should be conceded as they are undertaking similar rigours and hardships as the defence forces. “The dharna is to request and inform the government that its ex-paramilitary personnel are suffering. We have representatives of various states assembled here and they will continue the agitation till November 4,” National General Secretary of All India Central Paramilitary Forces and Ex-servicemen Welfare Association P S Nair said. “Our major demands to the government are the granting of OROP to paramilitary veterans like the military personnel, exemption of serving troops from contributory pension scheme and extending full benefits to these forces under the ex-servicemen category,” he said. President of the Association R B Pathak said the agitation by the paramilitary veterans will “intensify” in the coming days and they will hold a big rally next year if there is no positive communication from the government.Close to 300 of these veterans assembled at the protest site, very close to where a similar agitation is being held by the ex-servicemen of the armed forces for the prompt implementation of the OROP for them.
