The announcement comes on a day when protesting ex- servicemen decided to step up their protests and return their medals across the country starting November 9. "As you are aware, it will be issued before Diwali," Parrikar told reporters here in reply to a question when the official notification on OROP will come out. The government had on September 5 announced the OROP scheme for the veterans but an official notification was awaited. The government has cited the Model Code of Conduct for the Bihar polls as the reason behind the delay. Even after government had announced OROP scheme, a section of the veterans had continued their protest citing seven lacunae, including annual equalisation, 2013-14 as the base year among others.

OROP: Protesting military veterans to return medals IANS Posted at: Nov 6 2015 3:55PM  Armed forces veterans staging a protest here to press their demand for 'One Rank, One Pension' (OROP) scheme on Friday announced that they will return their medals across the country on November 9-10. "We have unanimously decided to return our medals across India," said Group Captain V.K. Gandhi, the general secretary of Indian Ex-Servicemen Movement. On 145th day of the protest at Jantar Mantar here and across the country, the armed forces veterans also decided to escalate, upgrade and intensify their agitation. "The government is willing to provide us an OROP, which is full of discrepancies and is not as per its definition. To protest, all ex-servicemen with their medals will line up in discipline and dignified manner in each district across the nation on November 9-10," Gandhi told reporters here.  "The district magistrate will collect the medals and if he doesn't come to collect it, the medals will be left behind. The DMs will be requested to guard their medals. We would request them to send these medals either to Prime Minister Narendra Modi or to President Pranab Mukherjee," he added. The agitation of armed forces veterans continued even after the central government announced the OROP scheme on September 5. The veterans have said what government announced is not OROP, but 'One Rank, Five Pension'.
