OROP: Planning Commission Accedes and Government Decides

Dear Colleagues,
The Governing Body met today afternoon. Apart from other agenda, they discussed the modalities of the 12 Nov rally, submission of memorandum to the Congress President and the AGM on the 13th November.
As the ESM environment is aware, Mr Bhagat Singh Koshyari is the Chairman of the Rajya Sabha Petitions Committee that is considering OROP; their report is to be tabled in the Parliament during its forthcoming Winter Session. His remarks, published in the Hindustan Times, New Delhi Uttarakhand edition, dated 9 October 2011, are reproduced below:
"Koshyari also revealed that the ex-servicemen's long pending demand for one-rank-one-pension has also been "acceded to by the planning Commission, which would benefit lakhs of ex-soldiers in Uttarakhand".
Assuming the journalist has correctly reproduced his remarks, this should be good news for all of us.
Best regards,
Lt Gen (Emeritus) Raj Kadyan, PVSM, AVSM, VSM
Chairman IESM
262, Sector-17A
