New Delhi: The official notification for One Rank One Pension (OROP) scheme will be issued before Diwali, defence minister Manohar Parrikar on Friday said.
The announcement comes on a day when protesting ex- servicemen decided to step up their protests and return their medals across the country starting 9 November.
“As you are aware, it will be issued before Diwali,” Parrikar told reporters in New Delhi in reply to a question when the official notification on OROP will come out.
The government had on 5 September announced the OROP scheme for the veterans but an official notification was awaited.
The government has cited the Model Code of Conduct for the Bihar polls as the reason behind the delay. Even after government had announced OROP scheme, a section of the veterans had continued their protest citing seven lacunae, including annual equalisation, 2013-14 as the base year among others.
