Probably a major breakthrough in the OROP (One Rank One Pension) struggle, the one-man judicial committee set up by the government submitted its report to Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Wednesday.
The committee was appointed under the stewardship of retired Chief Justice of Patna High Court L Narasimha Reddy, who was assigned to check anomalies arising out of the implementation of OROP.
Here are a few pictures:
The judicial committee on OROP had held hearings at around 20 cities and towns across the country and interacted with cross sections of ex-servicemen as well as their associations, a statement by the ministry said.
