Good evening and Happy New years to all.
It is reported in the news that the defence minister issued a statement saying that he would try for 100 percent OROP but 80 % satisfaction will be assured. On 31 Dec 2014, he stated that OROP will satisfy 80 percent Defence pensioners. This statement of the defence Minister will be demoralizing to the Armed Forces serving as well as retired.
The reported approval of OROP with 80% satisfaction is a total turn around from the statement of no less than the hon';ble PM of the country of a complete sanction of the same.
