  1. Vide Government of India Ministry of Defence letter Nos.1 (11)/2012-D (Pen/Policy) dated 17 Jan 2013.
    The enhanced pension was sanctioned and was to be paid wef 24 Sep 2012. This was applicable to officers othan Lt Generals and equivalent, who had already been sanctioned revised pension wef 01 Jan 2006.
    The anomaly was that officers other than Lt Gens were due to get arrears wef 01 Jan 2006.

    Then issue as regards OROP is different and bears no relationship with the arrears of pension case.
