CJI DY Chandrachud: Give a copy to the petitioner.

AG: It is confidential.

CJI DY Chandrachud: No no. I am personally averse to sealed covers. We see something, he cannot see that. This is fundamentally against rules of justice.

In 2014 BJP and Sena fought elections separately but later on Sena joined the Fadnavis government but it was an uneasy alliance. There would be outbursts every other day in the Samna- Our resignations are in our pockets was the standard dialogue of Sena
In 2019 throughout the campaign @Dev_Fadnavis @narendramodi and all leaders of the yuti kept promising the return of Fadnavis as CM. During the rallies Sena leaders including #UdhavThakrey would be on the stage. Not one word about sharing the CM post was said.
We all know what happened after the elections,Sena broke the yuti and went with NCP and CONGRESS to form #MVA totally against the stand of #balasahebthackeray and compromised on their ideology. The 2.5 years saw a gradual transition of the Sena from a hardcore Hindu party

[OROP Scheme]

#SupremeCourt hears matter concerning disbursement of arrears to eligible pensioners of the armed forces as per "One Rank One Pension" Scheme.

#SupremeCourt #SupremeCourtOfIndia
CJI DY Chandrachud: Mr AG, the Defence Ministry cannot take the law in its own hand! The notification Defence Secretary issues is directly against our orders. After he withdraws the communication of 20th, then we can hear your application.

#SupremeCourt #SupremeCourtOfIndia
Sr Adv Huzefa Ahmadi: You seem to have enough money for other things but you don't have money for pensioners? It's very unfair. 4 lakh pensioners have died during pendency of OROP petitions.

Was any payment to Adani delayed by any public sector bank or LIC? Just imagine if it was #Adani instead of ex-servicemen then how quickly this govt would have acted! "Since the petition was instituted, nearly 400000 pensioners have died awaiting to receive their due.
The payments were supposed to be made in 2019 and we are now in 2023, look at the gall of the officer issuing this communication. He arrogated to himself the power to modify the judgment of this court. This is extremely telling,” said Ahmadi, appearing for an
association of ex-servicemen. This is a new kind of nationalism in Modi's #NewIndia. Modi government is 24X7 available at the service of Adani! #OROP

Supreme Court to the Ministry of Defence in a One Rank One Pension case:

CJI DY Chandrachud: This is not a war but under the rule of law. Set your own house in order. If not we will issue a contempt notice to the Ministry of Defence

#SupremeCourtOfIndia #OROP Image
Sr Adv Huzefa Ahmadi: When this court passed an order how can the department reserve the right to modify it? 4 lakh pensioners have passed away in the interregnum and they cannot claim the pension #OROP
Ahmadi: They are pensioners and these 4 lakhs will never get OROP. These are retired army personnel

CJI: Bu Judgment of March 16, 2022, arrears of OROP was to be paid within 3 months.

Ahmadi: They should pay interest now if orders have been taken for granted.

The inclusion of PMR in #OROP was the biggest mistake of @DefenceMinIndia due to the pressure tactics of the superseded gang.

The entire #OROP is swept by PMR who left while the service in the 'rank' available.

Superseded, leave the fouj, pension hike is guaranteed in #OROP
JCO/NCOs were never under the PMR definition since they serve in terms of engagement.

04 assured time scale promotions up to the 'Col' rank and leaving PMR still, crying foul for #OROP, benefit which was envisaged for 'sepoy' thrown out after 17 yrs without single promotion.
The @DefenceMinIndia @PMOIndia buckled under the pressure of this gang because the support of JCO/NCO was there.

They deceived JCO/NCO for securing #OROP for PMR which was a bonanza for superseded Cols in true sense.

They got increase in pension in '000' Still...🫢

How much difference is due to ACP/MACP and what/assured career these lollipops have given?

A sepoy retired as sepoy after 17 yrs with one ACP hardly has any benefits in salary or pension but he can be forced retired at 33 years is the actual pain.

Everyone fighting for the "sepoy" quoting him in the examples, building case of #OROP 2.0 revision around him forgot that he was the least beneficiary of the #OROP 1.0 being the lowest rank and minimum QS.

He was the one to whom OROP should only be given by the @PMOIndia

Once promoted and chance to serve available but choose to hang boots at his own will after exhausting chances of further promotion or being superseded are considered for #OROP was the biggest blunder of @DefenceMinIndia

They realised it and now cautious enough.

Supreme Court Bench of Justice DY Chandrachud, Justice Surya Kant and Justice Vikram Nath are hearing the ex-servicemen's plea to implement "One Rank One Pension" in the Defence Forces
ASG Venkataraman: they have raised 3 contentions
1. they say it should be automatic, not periodical
2. review once in 5 years is not acceptable
3. third is a chart which i will now show
ASG : The chart shows that you should take the scale and not go by the mean.

DYC, J : you've taken the mean but no one is brought down

ASG agrees

1. #OROP I read lot of tweets on #OROP. Generally the pattern is same. There is a case pending in SC for which I heard in Oct 2020 or so that final date of hearing is to be given by SC. Each time next date is given assigning no reason. Yesterday, again, fresh date was given.
2. #OROP To assume SC is too tight for dates is like gulping quinine without making face. Come over to other side. Veterans. Very imp to read a thread on #MentalHealth and Stupidity of Crowds 👇🏻👇🏻before you read my thread. On Social Media, all veterans are expected to abuse Modi.
3. #OROP Mr Modi & his entire ‘force multipliers’ scream ‘hamne OROP diya’, in the other side there is a case in Supreme Court, which, miraculously, does not get the ‘final’ date since one year. It’s ‘Daya, kuch to gadbad hai’ scenario. My issue is NOT Govt or SC, it is Veterans.

Supreme Court bench led by Justice DY Chandrachud to hear a plea by Indian Ex-Servicemen Movement accusing the government of reneging on its promise to implement OROP
The petitioner said OROP, despite assurances by the Minister on the floor of the House and Executive decisions which had become final, had become ‘One Rank Different Pension’
The bone of contention in the petition is the government’s move on November 7, 2015 that equalisation of pension would happen periodically every five years. The petition said the equalisation of pension should be automatic, that is whenever there is disparity.

Thread #OROP fallacies over social media.
1. 'In 1973, Indira Gandhi terminated ‘One Rank One Pension.'
2. 3rd CPC increased pension of civilians from 30% to 50% & reduced pension of PBORs from 70% to 50% of basic pay. Facts submitted are courtesy Wg Cdr RK Bali & AM SY Savur
For ease of understanding, I will try & split this into two sub threads.
1. Circumstances Pre 3rd CPC (Headed by Justice Raghubir Dayal) &
2. Post 3rd CPC.

P.S. 3rd CPC was the first Commission to review pay & allowances of The Armed Forces of India.
Pay & pensions were lower than those of British personnel in the Indian Army. During WW2, these were hiked. After the war, these were reduced & brought at par with civilians. Post Independence, pensions were fixed by Armed Forces Pension Revision Committee (AFPRC).

1/n For all you Bhakts waxing eloquent abt @BJP4India giving us #OROP.

Let me set the record straight.

Pension enhancement was won after a hard agitation thanks to @satbirsm who had the unflinching support of veterans. That, after @narendramodi forgot his promise made in Rewari
2/n Why the hardline stance?

1. #OROP bheek nahin hai. Adhikar hai
2. @BJP4India really shouldn't have lathi charged us. We are a proud lot who served India. We don't forget & we will institutionalise the memory.
3. @narendramodi constant lies wrt #OROP only aggravates situation
Why is the agitation continuing?
@BJP4India has only itself to blame because of its actions mentioned earlier. BJP moved actively to divide the ESM fraternity.
We moved to unite other sections of society.…
We fought for India. Now, India fights for us

Some highlights from the foreign and security policy sections of the #CongressManifesto:

Police forces: "deployment of specialist battalions and recruitment of additional personnel."

"Efficiency and full transparency" of defence procurement.
"Indigenous manufacturing" of defence equipment.

"National Commission for Ex-Servicemen."

"Credible deterrent and second strike capability."

Our "position...combines the cumulative heritage of Non- Aligned-Movement and its advocacy of freedom for African countries and steady support for Palestine. We will continue to support the goodwill nurtured for decades amongst socialist countries." #CongressManifesto

1). जितने गैस कनेक्शन देने में कांग्रेस को 60 साल लग गए, उतना गैस कनेक्शन सिर्फ 5 साल में दे दिया क्युकी मोदी है तो मुमकिन हैं। #ModiHaiToMumkinHai
जिस जीएसटी #GST को कांग्रेस 20 साल तक लागू नहीं कर पाई, उसको सिर्फ 5 साल में अच्छी तरह से लागू करके टैक्स कलेक्शन 1 लाख करोड़ के पार पहुंचा दिया।

जो कांग्रेस सैनिकों को वन रैंक वन पेंशन #OROP नहीं दे पाई, उसको 5 साल में दे दिया गया क्युकी मोदी हैं तो मुमकिन हैं। #ChowkidarPhirSe
4).बांग्लादेश के साथ सीमा विवाद को जो कांग्रेस 60 साल में हल ना कर सकी, उसको 5 साल में सुलझा लिया गया।

5).जिन परियोजनाओं को कांग्रेस 60 साल में पूरा ना कर सकी, उनको 5 साल में पूरा करके राष्ट्र को समर्पित कर दिया गया क्युकी मोदी है तो मुमकिन है।

Hindus pleaded for Ram Lalla's Temple on his birthplace since ages & dispute was filed in court 134 yrs ago. Congress corrupt lawyers postponed it for 70 years. It was only under Modi Govt that the decision for building Bhavya Ram Mandir was given
