The issue also figured in a coordination meeting between the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) on Wednesday. As per sources, the RSS asked the government to implement the OROP soon, and form a commission to look into the issues on which consensus has not been reached.

Sources that the veterans have met Principal Secretary to the Prime Minister Nripendra Misra, Rural Affairs Minister Birender Singh, and MPs Rajeev Chandrashekhar and Bhagat Singh Koshiyari -- the latter headed the parliamentary committee that brought out a report on OROP.

"The talks are going on well. At this pace, we hope to have a breakthrough in a day or two," a source said.

The source said pension equalisation was the point of contention presently. While the government was ready to do the revision at an interval of five years, the veterans wanted it on a yearly basis.

Meanwhile, sources said RSS chief Mohan Bahgwat talked to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar separately on the OROP issue on the first day of the three-day coordination meeting that began on Wednesday.

Parrikar briefed Bhagwat on the issue, whereas Jaitley spoke on its financial implications. Sources said the RSS chief also sought to know from Jaitley the problems the central government faced in the implementation of the OROP.

According to sources, Bhagwat asked the BJP leaders to resolve the OROP issue at the earliest and suggested setting up of a commission to deal with its financial implications, if needed.
