1. Take your basic from OROP table published to day by MOD. Let it be =X
2. Take your current basic (which is wef 24/12/2012).Let it be =Y
3. Take the difference of X- Y above and let it be =”Q”
4. Your Total arrears of OROP wef 1/7/2014 to 31/1/2016= Q x 40.58 (amount Q multiplied by 40.58). The result could be with a deviation of Less than Rs 100/- in total due to certain approximations

Note : multiply with 40.58 , the difference of OROP table amount with what is your current basic .
You can calculate the OROP arrears also in the following way:
1. Find the Basic pension as per OROP chart- table, say for Example;
Hav and equal Ranks- Sgt- Group- X
As per Table no: 7 of OROP Tables It is = 8585
then as per Cir 501,table No.17…………..it is = 6374
Difference per month = 2211
Now the Effective Date is From 01-07-2014
Arrears from 1-7-2014 to 31-01-2016 will be:
Difference X a factor of 40.53
2211 X 40.53 = 89612/-
So, 89612 IS THE ARREARS
This will be paid in 4 equal half yearly installments.
For family pensioners, in one installment. This the simple way of calculation.
