ARMED FORCES REJECT PAY PANEL : ARMY, NAVY, IAF ;; FIRST RESOLVE 'ANOMALIES' - BY AJAY BANERJEE

New Delhi, Sep 10 (UPDATED -SEP 11, 01:40HRS) 

In an embarrassment to the Modi Govt, the Armed Forces have rejected the SALARY & EMOULMENTS recommended by the 7TH CENTRAL PAY COMMISSION, pleading that its implementation be put on hold in view of the “unresolved anomalies” that lowered the status of the forces vis-à-vis their counterparts in the police and the civil administration.

The Ministry of Defence had issued the notification on Sep 6 after taking into account a letter by the three services chiefs on the issue of pay parity, among other things. 

This notification was exclusively for the forces.

In the past 24 hours, the Army, the Navy and the Air Force have issued separate letters to inform senior commanders and the troops about the decision of the top brass.

The Chiefs of Staff Committee had met on Sep 7 to discuss the issue. 

Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar is expected to take a decision on the matter on Monday.

Earlier, the notification for enhanced pay for the forces had been held up as the issues raised by the three services were being studied.

The main “anomaly” is that the formula adopted for determining the basic pay for the armed forces is different from the one for other Central Govt employees. 

As a result, in each rank the service officers have been awarded lower pay scales.

In March, the MoD had told an empowered panel that the status, pay and allowances of the armed forces be kept above the other “fighting” arms of the Govt.

  1. Finally, it seems the defence forces top brass is rising up to defend the rank & files under them.Though,its a shame for the country that things have come to this point,it would definitely resuscitate the image of senior officers which indeed is need of the hour.

  2. The political and civil executives of this country who sit in a/c rooms will never realise until the nation itself is lost . It is high time that the chiefs take more stiffer position in this regard. However it does not seems to be so since they are for enhancement of MSP for only JCOS . Asa matter of fact since JCOS serve for more no of years they should be paid less MSP . In offer cadre those who serve for more than 25 yrs that is above Brigrades are not entitled for MSP. Let the CHEIFS apply third mind on this point . They should remember that it the ORs who are hype back bone of armed forces.

  3. Sorry. The process of lowering, as known, is continuing since Independence. So what is embarrassing to present day govt in accepting it. Yes post acceptance action must be visible in correction of root cause that is suppression of pay scale at all levels, as also number of levels
