The government on Saturday issued notification for implementation of One Rank One Pension (OROP) for ex-servicemen.
Pension will be re-fixed as per average of minimum and maximum pension of personnel retired in 2013 in same rank and same length of service and the benefit will be from 1 July, the government said. In future, the pension would be re-fixed every five years. 
Personnel who opt to get discharged, now on, on their request will not get benefits of OROP. It will be effective prospectively.
