THE OROP STRUGGLE AT THE FINAL STAGE-
A final solution to the ‘One Rank One Pension’ row remained out of reach despite hectic back channel talks, as the protesting ex-servicemen today rejected government's formula saying an attempt was being made to “short-change” them.
“The government is hell bent on short-changing. There are only three points of contention," a source here said.
Sources said the government wants 2011 to be the base year, besides no 3 per cent annual increase. The government also wants payment to begin from April 1, 2015 as against the agreed date of April 1, 2014.
