Medical corps in the defence forces have welcomed OROP but they still want the Indian government be as sensitive to their problems as well.Nearly 6,000 officers and pensioners of the Army Medical Corps across India continue to battle for their rights over six years later.

The armed forced doctors accused the government of going against the recommendations of its own tribunal. When doctors from other services such railways, Border Security Force, CRPF and even civilian doctors in the military have benefited, why should they be left out, say petitioners.

The defence ministry continues to sit on a 2011 order of the Armed Forces Tribunal to implement the promotion pay scheme that the Supreme Court had ratified in 2013. The ministry had informed the SC that there was a difference between the army medical corps and civilian doctors. The army feels upgradation of the armed forces doctors would lead to "command and control problems".

The committee said DACP needs to be implemented with simultaneous grant of same grade pays to all defence officers, in order to avoid stratification of the officer cadre.
