NEW DELHI: Central paramilitary forces and troops in the Assam Rifles have demanded granting of One Rank One Pension (OROP) on par with defence personnel, the Rajya Sabha was informed today.

"There are demands from the in-service and retired Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) and Assam Rifles personnel for extending One Rank One Pension (OROP) on par with defence personnel.

"CAPFs and Assam Rifles retire only on attaining the age of 57/60 years and they are entitled for pension and other pensionary benefits as per Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules, 1972. These rules are different from the pension rules applicable to ex-servicemen.

"Further, CAPF and AR personnel, who are appointed on or after January 1, 2004 are covered under New Pension System," Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju said in a written reply in Rajya Sabha.

He was responding to a question on whether the government has taken any steps to address this issue.
