(1) It‘s going to be ‘Parity in Pension’ in lieu of OROP, and (2) ‘Salute’ salutes the Sappers
There are indications in place that the govt is soon going to announce the much needed respite to pre-2006 pensioners by announcing a system incorporating ‘parity in pensions’. While this may not be at par with OROP, still it would definitely bridge the gap between pre and post 2006 pensioners. In all probability, the new system would be incorporated only for personnel other than Commissioned Officers. Officers may have a formula different than PBOR. The exact modalities would be available for all to see once the recommendations are presented to the govt by the committee(s) set up for the purpose, which incidentally would be weeks and not months.
