DEFENCE MINISTER TO MEET FINANCE MINISTER ON OROP.
Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar is likely to meet Finance Minister Arun Jaitley later this week to iron out the differences on the implementation of the One Rank One Pension (OROP) for the ex-servicemen.
The two senior ministers would not only have to find ways to arrange for an additional Rs 8,300 crore in the defence ministry’s budget in 2015 to implement OROP, but would also have to plug the loopholes while rolling out the scheme.
