Union Minister of State for Defence Rao Inderjit said today that the announcement about implementation of the one-rank,one-pension (OROP) scheme would be made immediately after the conclusion of parliamentery session.

Interacting with mediapersons at his residence in Rampura village here today, he said the BJP government was committed to executing the OROP scheme for ex-servicemen.

He maintained the financial burden on account of implementing the OROP scheme had been taken care of in the Budget. If needed, additional funds would be transferred for the scheme.

“Any monetary problem will not be allowed to come in the way of the OROP scheme,” said Inderjit.

About amendments to the existing Land Acquisition Act, the minister said not a single inch of land would be acquired without obtaining consent from the landowners. The amendments had been made to make the Act effective and development-oriented, he added. Earlier, addressing a gathering at Tehna Deepalpur village the minister said the Central as well as the state governments were keen on fulfilling their poll promises.
