Minister of State for External Affairs General (Retired) V.K. Singh on Wednesday said that he has full faith that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will soon implement One Rank, One Pension (OROP) scheme.
“Prime Minister has said that he has taken oath under our national flag that OROP will be implemented. So, I am sure OROP will soon come into practice,” Singh told the media here.
OROP scheme has been a long-standing demand of nearly three-million ex-servicemen and war widows in the country.
It seeks to ensure that a uniform pension is paid to defence personnel, who retire at the same rank with the same length of service irrespective of their date of retirement.
