Government on Tuesday said it is not formulating any policy for implementing ‘One Rank One Pension Scheme’ for paramilitary forces.

The principle of OROP for the armed forces has been accepted by the government, Minister of State for Defence Rao Inderjit Singh said in a written reply in Rajya Sabha.

He added that the modalities for implementation were discussed with various stakeholders and are presently under consideration of the government.

It will be implemented once the modalities are approved by the government, he said.

On a question whether the government is formulating any policy for implementing this scheme for paramilitary forces also, he said, “No”.

The reply comes in the backdrop of the ongoing agitation by the ex-servicemen community seeking implementation of the long-pending OROP.
