OROP hopes recede over technicalities

Hopes receded on Friday of an announcement of the implementation of the one rank, one pension (OROP) scheme by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his Independence Day address from the historic Red Fort as talks between the Centre and ex-servicemen groups stalled over a working formula.

Addressing presspersons on the sidelines of an event in Dehradun, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar said the Centre would take some more time to implement the scheme as there were some “technical difficulties” that needed to be addressed.
