No mention of allocation for the Defence

No mention of allocation for the Defence 11Interestingly, finance minister Arun Jaitley has not mentioned anything on the allocation made to Defence sector although there was 24463 crore additional allocation this time. This is perhaps for the first time in the last 17 years. While last year the total allocation was  Rs 224636 crore, this year, the government made Rs 249099 crore. The controversy over OROP and the possible allocations for the retired personnel might be the reason for Jaitley not going into details, it is said.
