Members of the Indian Ex Servicemen Movement take part in a sit-in protest in New Delhi
Members of the Indian Ex Servicemen Movement take part in a sit-in protest in New Delhi, India, September 5, 2015. The Indian government approved a long-awaited programme to equalise pension payments for retired military personnel despite it being a "huge fiscal burden," Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar said on Saturday. The programme, known as "One Rank One Pension", or OROP, will ensure uniform pension payments to ex-servicemen who served at the same rank and for the same amount of time, regardless of the year they retired, among other measures. OROP plans to reconcile the rate of payments of current and past pensioners every five years, disappointing some ex-servicemen who wanted the review to happen more frequently.
