One rank, one pension We are in consultation with defence personnel on its definition. We are committed to it. We are looking for a way where all stakeholders agree. This should not be politicised.

|Modi Interview to Tribune on OROP|
Text of Interview
Interviewer: Will you deliver on the one-rank-one-pension (OROP) promise
to the defence personnel?
with defence personnel regarding the definition of
OROP. Our government is here for five years, and we
cannot do anything without consulting the people concerned.
The dialogue is being actively pursued. There
is no need to have any doubt on this. The Tribune has
a large readership among defence personnel, and
through you I would like to assure them we are
absolutely committed. It is just that there are too many
definitions going around yet, and we are looking for
one on which all stakeholders agree. For me this is not
a political agenda
