Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the issue of One Rank, One Pension (OROP) has been “resolved” and sought to assuage protesting military veterans against “diluted” notification saying any issue relating to it can be taken up with the judicial committee set up by government to make it “fool-proof.”

“The Prime Minister said that the long-pending issue of One Rank, One Pension has been resolved and it has been granted,” an official release said.

Several war veterans have returned their medals as part of their protest against “diluted” OROP.

“I would like (to see) that the inputs, if any, are given to the committee,” Modi said while visiting military installations associated with the 1965 Indo-Pak war and interacting with the troops on the occasion of Diwali.

He said his government was the first to have set up a committee along with the OROP notification to make the scheme “foolproof.”

Modi also said that he wanted to see his “dream” of OROP implementation in a meaningful manner.

For the second successive year, Modi celebrated Diwali with troops.

Modi paid surprise visits to three military installations close to the Indo-Pak border — the Dograi War Memorial in Khasa, Asal Uttar Memorial near Valtoha and Barki War Memorial in Ferozepur district in Punjab, and interacted with the troops.

    Modi Fooled Ex servicemen completely. He granted One Rank One Pension to Ex-servicemen below 60 Years of service and Jawan with 17 /19 years service only, rest fooled.....specially in poor Navy sailors (jawans in Navy), their first engagement and Retire after 15 years. They are fooled. Modi , Himself told on 06 Sep 2015 that 15 years (Navy men) will be given as they are enled. See below quote from Ministry of Defense Letter.... MOD Letter has lot of anomalies including Navy sailors retiring period. SEE BELOW QUOTE OF MOD LETTER ,,,,....... " Sepoy in Army and equivalent rank in Navy & Air Force retire after 17/19 years of engagement/service and officers retire before attaining the age of 60 years i.e. the normal age of retirement in the Government. Considering these exceptional service conditions and in the interest of ever vigilant Defence Forces, the pensionary benefits of Ex-Servicemen have accordingly, over time, been fixed. "
