When will Army get the OROP it deserves?

Isn't it amazing that no one talked about the total cost to exchequer when NFU was granted to IAS, IPS and other services, excluding the Defence Forces. When OROP is mentioned, it is made out that the entire economy of the country is threatened, even though the amount involved is not even a fraction of the bad loans and similar funds blithely written off by the Government. The term OROP is treated as a very complicated or complex formula. For the moment forget the fact that twice our Parliament has approved the definition of the same and, the previous. Treating it as simple English as One Rank means same rank. Considering the Army structure, Naik, Havildar, Subedar, Lt. Colonel, Colonel, and so on are ranks. Picking up any one rank, say Lt. Colonel, One Rank means all those who retire as Lt. Colonels. One Pension in such a case implies one pension for all who retire as a Lt. Colonels. However, different Lt. Colonels may have retired with different lengths of service. Therefore, OROP implies same pension to all military personnel retiring in the same rank and with same length of service. There is nothing intricate or complex in understanding the term OROP, unless the intent is mala-fide. Our Government is prevaricating over this simple term. They are deliberately dissembling, by crediting themselves for having fulfilled a promise. The OROP announced by the Government does not meet any criteria of the true definition of OROP as approved by our Parliament.

Thanks a lot to Indian army. We have been waiting for this from a long long time. We have lost our brothers and sisters in this proxy war and all we got to hear was kadi

This might be against few of those diplomatic decisions and ties that India has created but one needs to understand that Pakistan is someone who wouldn't stop at any cost. Sorry to say but it's like a mad dog which needs to be whipped once it twice to keep it in check.

Surgical strike was one way to sort them, now India should focus on internal political aspects as a way forward
