Government has one week to negotiate OROP before election code of conduct comes into effect

By NewsGram Staff-Writer

New Delhi: As elections in Bihar are around the corner, the Modi government has just one week to negotiate and clinch a deal with the military veterans about OROP. Once the code of conduct sets in, it would be difficult for the government to make any announcements about OROP.

oropEven though the differences between the veterans and the government have narrowed down to a large extent, the bone of contention regarding the veteran’s demand for an annual revision of the increment still remains. The government has called the annual revision as impractical and instead, has offered a revision of increment every five years, according to a report in Times of India.

The seventh pay commission which is scheduled to submit its report next month, may further create complications. The government has suggested that the OROP should be evaluated by the commission, but the United Front of Ex-Servicemen, who are protesting at Jantar Mantar have rejected the proposal.

Meanwhile, a group of personnel below officer rank (PBOR) called “Voice of Ex-Servicemen” has distanced itself from the United Front, as the latter’s demand largely benefits only the officers. The Voice of Ex-Servicemen has submitted a memorandum to the government asking it to restore pre-1973 dispension. It has also demanded a pension of 75% of last salary drawn for the PBOR.
