OROP 2 Implementation Letter on Grant due justice to the ex-­soldiers and their dependents by Maj Gen Satbir Singh

Exservicemen are eagerly waiting for notification to be released by Ministry of Defencce regarding implementation of OROP Revision -2 which is due since 2019. The Apex Court has ordered to implement and pay arrears due from 01 July 2019 and the cutoff date to implement the orders of the SC is 15th September 2022. As till date the defence pension authority has not published any notification in this regard, the Exservicemen are disppointed with the act of the pension disbursing authority. This the letter published by Gen S Singh in his Twitter account which is reproduced below.
