  • It is good what govt has announced on OROP, we are satisfied.
  • We don't accept the decision not to give OROP benefits to those who have taken voluntary retirement.
  • We also disapprove of setting up of one-member judicial committee. It should be under Defence minister and not given more than one month.

  • According to us, govt has only accepted one of our demands and rejected six

  • Veterans not to withdraw agitation, reject govt decision for revision of pension every five years.

  • Want clarifications on issues like pre-mature retirement benefits and averaging of pension.
