OROP will certainly be implemented, don't lose heart: Gen V K Singh

Hyderabad, Jun 18: Minister of State for External Affairs General V K Singh today asserted that one-rank one-pension (OROP) scheme would certainly be implemented.

"The Prime Minister has made a promise regarding OROP. It would be implemented. There was some delay because calculations are going on. Therefore it is taking time. Let's not lose heart. I have full faith in the Prime Minister. It would be implemented exactly as wanted by the retired Armymen," Singh said.

OROP is certainty: Gen V K Singh.
Several retired army officers have expressed resentment over the delay in introduction of the OROP scheme.
