Defence Minister hints betterment of OROP and 7th CPC for soldiers

OROP scheme: Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar has said government is reconsidering the denial of the One Rank One Pay (OROP) scheme to premature retirees. In an interview, Parrikar said a one-member judicial commission can also relook at equilising pensions.
The One Rank One Pension (OROP) scheme announced by the government at present does not cover those who take early retirement, something that the veterans demanding OROP have opposed.

Equilisation of pensions at present under OROP is to be done every five years, while the veterans want it to be done every year. Parrikar was talking to Karan Thapar on India Today TV.
Asked about the 7th Pay Commission and the concerns of the forces, the minister said it is being studied, and promised “rectification”.
