The BJP-led government at the Centre is committed to implement the 'one rank, one pension' scheme for ex-servicemen, Minister of State for External Affairs General V K Singh said on Sunday.
"The BJP-led government at the Centre has allotted Rs 1,000 crore for the implementation of one rank one pension scheme, which is insufficient. I have requested the Finance Minister to allocate more funds for it. The government remains committed to implement the scheme at the earliest," Singh told reporters here.
Singh, who is also the Minister of State for North East Region, said the Finance Minister has assured him that there would be no dearth of capital for the scheme.
The former Army Chief was in Mumbai to attend a programme to mark the '15th Kargil Vijay Diwas' at the state BJP office here."We had announced the one rank-one pension scheme in our manifesto and the central government will ensure its implementation at the earliest," he added.
Talking about the upcoming assembly polls in Maharashtra, he said, the state BJP leaders should ensure that the party-led alliance comes to power in the state. "The assembly elections in Maharashtra are just a few months away. The state BJP leaders should ensure that the BJP-led (Mahayuti) alliance wins the upcoming elections.
This will ensure a better co-ordination between the central and the state governments, and further benefit the state from the schemes of the central government," he said.

  1. Dear All,

    Due to Assembly Election these bastards Politicians are voiced for One Rank One Pension. In India all bastard Politicians and Bureaucrat/IDAS/IAS Dogs are curse for the Nation

  2. I would request all ex-servicemen not to trust the verbal promises anymore made by any leader or politician who are breaking or breaching their promises time and again. Let at the earliest the government implement the OROP in full without any dilution first then only listen his request for supporting him or his party for the coming state elections. Please we all must now unite together to show our strength and bigger vote bank. Boycott all conferences, meetings and gatherings called by the politicians.
    Next, the prime minister should standby his promises made many times for OROP till date and honour his promises. It is a question of his honour, respect and trust. And very lately, the new government has accepted OROP at par with new pensioners of 2014. Prime Minister must now think about his promises and get the implementation orders issued at the earliest date without any further delay to release the furious frustration of all ex-servicemen.

  3. The temptation is too high on this OROP but the ex-servicemen still feel that on OROP they are betrayed.Scandle like 1.87 lakhs crores can be afforded and a similar amount on 2G&3G scam where as few thousands crores for ex-servicemen benefit is a burdon for the government.
