Rank Pay and OROP to be discussed in the Winter Parliament Session

Dear Sir,
The core group of RDOA consisting of Lt Col BK Sharma - Chairman Retired Defence Officers Association, Col VK Anand and Lt Col Satwant Singh met Mrs Sushma Swaraj, leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha today ie 11 Sept 2010 at 1230hrs and briefed her on:

OROP: An RTI application was filed by RDOA seeking information as to why it was not feasible to give OROP. Brief containing replies received there to was handed over to her.

Rank Pay Anomaly Case: A synopsis of the case along with the Supreme Court Judgment dated 08 Mar 2010 & Interlocutory Appeal filed by the UOI with a copy of letter written by Shri Nitin Gadkari, National President, Bharatiya Janata Party to the Prime Minister of India dated 06 July 2010 on the Rank Pay case as well as other issues / grievances of Ex Servicemen seeking withdrawl of the application was given to her.

It was also pointed out that on one hand the Law Minister says that the Govt should not be an unnecessary litigant and on the other hand here was a classic case wherein the Govt has gone in for a deliberate litigation denying the officers their legitimate dues.

Mrs Sushma Swaraj assured the core Group that both the cases would be taken up during the coming winter session of Parliament. It is requested that vide publicity be accorded through your RMS and network
Thanking you
