New Delhi, Sep 5 (IANS) The government has approved the One Rank One Pension (OROP) concept in principle, Maj. Gen. Satbir Singh (retd), who is spearheading the campaign for the sceheme’s implementation, said here on Saturday.

He told the media that Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar has also agreed to the issue of extending OROP to ex-servicemen who took premature retirement.
