Speaking on the issue, Army chief Gen. V.K. Singh, who was also present, said: 'The centre is consid-ering the issue. The one rank, one pension norm has been achieved for JCOs and soldiers, up to 90% ranks, while the issue regarding officers is under consideration.'
Comparing the strength of Indian defence forces with China, Singh said that Indian soldiers are matchless. 'Defence forces are not evaluated on the basis of numbers only, other factors like morale, physical efficiency, courage and enthusiasm are also important,' he noted
