ONE RANK ONE PENSION (or OROP) – WE RESPECT OUR JAWANS & VETERANS BUT THEIR DEMANDS SEEM UNREASONABLE …
Government has agreed in principle to OROP for the first time ever. Now the Jawans want an annual review, where the govt consistent with other services is offering reviews every five, the difference is very high – hundreds and thousands of more crores, and this money will need to come from somewhere. The other concerns are CRPF, BSF and other paramilitary forces may also ask for the same, and so might be government employees. All in all the demand is too cost and totally unreasonable.
