OROP-3 Consideration by President of India : Veterans Initiative

OROP-3 Consideration by President of India : Veterans Initiative

OROP -3 is due w.e.f 01 July 2024.  Veterans are eagerly waiting for the Govt notification or Circular in this regard.  Earlier, the Ex Servicemen Associations and individual veterans had Requested Hon’ble Raksha Mantri, Defence Secretary & Secretary ESW for Implementation of OROP-3 On time i.e. wef 01 Jul 2024. But till date no information in this regard has been shared or published by the Govt authority. 

The Pension for the Month of July 24 should be paid as OROP-3 Revised Pension. It would avoid the Extra Work of Calculation of OROP-3 Arrears and Planning the Additional Budget. However, no reply has since been received. One Line Reply would have gone a long way in Boosting the Morale of the Indian Armed Forces veterans Pensioners.   Some veterans have now approached the Supreme Commander of the Indian Armed Forces, Hon’ble President of India.  The main content of such a representation is reproduced here.
