Govt is examining Justice Reddy Committee report on OROP 

NEW DELHI:The Defence Ministry is examining the report submitted by one-man judicial committee on One Rank One Pension (OROP), official sources said.

The Centre had appointed the committee under the Chairmanship of retired Chief Justice of Patna High Court Justice L Narasimha Reddy who submitted its report to the then Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar in November last year.

“Justice Reddy had met the defence minister last week and discussed about the report,” said the sources.

Before submitting its report, the judicial committee had held hearings at around 20 cities in the country and held discussions with ex-servicemen and their associations.

The agitating veterans who were on protest against not meeting their demands at Jantar Mantar, have been evicted by the police and New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) after the National Green Tribunal last month directed the Delhi government to immediately stop all protests and assembly of people in the area.

The venue turned into a chaos centre after the veterans refused to shift from the protest site. Some of them were  injured in the scuffle.
