The possibility of an announcement was being talked about in official circles, although ex-servicemen maintained that there was no agreement on revision of pension.
    
The ex-servicemen have indicated that they may accept a revision every two years but the government has been insisting that equalisation will happen once in five years.
    
The ex-servicemen, who have been agitating for the last 82 days, said they will not accept review of the pension after every five years.
    
It is understood that a draft proposal on OROP was circulated at a RSS meeting yesterday which envisaged commencement of the scheme from July 2014, besides revision of pension every five years.
    
According to the draft, the basis for the implementation of the scheme would be 2013 and arrears would be paid in four installments.
    
Reacting to the proposal, the ex-servicemen had threatened to intensify their stir if the government makes any unilateral announcement regarding implementation of OROP which is not in consonance with the terms and conditions set by the defence veterans.
