Burning medals by war veterans an insult to nation: Parrikar
Posted on: 14-11-2015 , 11:51:AM | DY365 Bureau

Nov 14, 2015- Attempts by war veterans to burn their medals as a protest to the One Rank, One Pension scheme is an insult to the nation and the armed forces, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar said on Friday.

The Defence Minister said medals were recognition for the sacrifice made by the armed forces and not connected with the service conditions. He further asserted that those aggrieved by the scheme notified by the government can put their demands before the judicial commission, which has been formed to review the OROP scheme's shortfalls.
OROP basically means payment of uniform pension to personnel retiring in the same rank with the same length of service, irrespective of their date of retirement.
But the veterans say the government has not resolved any of the seven main anomalies pointed out by them. They are particularly incensed that the government did not accept their case for "pension equalization or adjustment" every year, and instead notified that it will be done only at five-year intervals.
