Parrikar Sounds Christmas Bell Over OROP


New Delhi: Defence Minister Manohar Parikkar on Thursday aid there will be good news coming soon on the issue of One Rank One Pension, a long-standing demand of ex-servicemen who have been holding protests across the nation. “It’s an inter-departmental issue. As far as the Defence Ministry is concerned, our work is almost over. This is taking time but I can say that there will be a good news soon,” he added.

Ex-servicemen have been protesting since last month to press for the implementation of One Rank, One Pension. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said that his government is committed to the long-awaited One Rank, One Pension (OROP) policy for ex-servicemen.
