One Rank One Pension – Long Pending Issue of OROP has been Resolved – Modi

One Rank One Pension – Long Pending Issue of OROP has been Resolved – “I would like (to see) that the inputs, if any, are given to the committee,” Modi said while visiting military installations associated with the 1965 Indo-Pak war and interacting with the troops on the occasion of Diwali.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said the issue of One-Rank, One Pension (OROP) has been “resolved” and sought to assuage protesting military veterans against “diluted” notification saying any issue relating to it can be taken up with the judicial committee set up by government to make it “fool-proof.”

“The Prime Minister said that the long-pending issue of One-Rank, One Pension has been resolved and it has been granted,” an official release said. Several war veterans have returned their medals as part of their protest against “diluted” OROP.

“I would like (to see) that the inputs, if any, are given to the committee,” Modi said while visiting military installations associated with the 1965 Indo-Pak war and interacting with the troops on the occasion of Diwali. He said his government was the first to have set up a committee along with the OROP notification to make the scheme “foolproof.”

Modi also said that he wanted to see his “dream” of OROP implementation in a meaningful manner.

For the second successive year, Modi celebrated Diwali with troops. Modi paid surprise visits to three military installations close to the Indo-Pak border – the Dograi War Memorial in Khasa, Asal Uttar Memorial near Valtoha and Barki War Memorial in Ferozepur district in Punjab, and interacted with the troops.
