Parliamentary panel slams govt for non-implementation of OROP in Armed forces
New Delhi | Monday, Apr 27 2015 IST
The Standing Committee on Defence, in its report submitted in the both Houses of Parliament, regretted that even after Prime Minister Narendra Modi had made a commitment and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had provided Rs 1,000 crore in the General Budget, the OROP has not been implemented.
"It is beyond the understanding of the Committee as to what reasons are preventing the government from making necessary decisions and arriving at a solution," the Committee wondered, adding that it was utmost important that requisite modalities were sorted out and an amicable solution brought with regard to OROP within stringent timeframe at the earliest.
The Committee asked the government to apprise it about the progress made in this regard.
