Ex-servicemen meet Arun Jaitley, seek changes in OROP notification

A delegation of ex-servicemen on Sunday met finance minister Arun Jaitley and submitted a memorandum seeking "corrections" in the One Rank One Pension (OROP) notification, as their protest on the issue entered the 203rd day.

"A five-member delegation met the finance minister and told him that the actual OROP has not been granted. The notification issued has serious flaws and we requested him for corrections in it and granting of actual OROP as per the approved definitions," retired General Satbir Singh said.

"The minister has assured us that he will speak to the defence minister about our demands," he added.

A group of 100 ex-servicemen including those from Haryana, Punjab, UP and NCR area also protested outside Jaitley's residence and then moved to Jantar Mantar here.
