Capt Amrinder Singh MP On Chiefs' Rejection of 7 CPC

I am extremely happy and I strongly support the objections raised by the three services chiefs over the anomalies in the pay scales of the defence personnel in the Seventh Pay Commission. There is brazen and blatant discrimination with the defence services in the pay scales which is disgusting and condemnable.
The pay commission recommendations, obviously scripted by the bureaucrats have shown brazen and blatant bias against the defence services. Instead of the defence services getting a better deal for the hostile conditions they are made to work, they have been subjected to a raw deal.
Just because our soldiers are disciplined and dedicated to serving the nation should not mean that they should be discriminated against. We owe our peace and peaceful lives to those guarding our borders and taking bullets on their chests and hence we must have a fair sense of gratitude towards them.
Nobody among the bureaucrats knows about the hostile conditions in which our soldiers are made to work and that is the reason there is such a bias against the defence forces. According to the recommendations while a soldier posted at Siachen Glacier will get Rs 38,000 extra salary, an IAS officer posted in Assam will get Rs 58,000 extra. This is disgusting.
I have been seriously suggesting to the Defence Minister that the bureaucrats who have habitually been creating hurdles and hindrances in providing better pay to the defence personnel should be made to serve in Siachen for at least a day so that they realise what a soldier goes through. The Defence Minister must stand by our soldiers and get the anomalies removed at the earliest.
This is not only an issue of salary to the defence personnel, but their status vis-à-vis other civilian services including the police and the administrative. The defence services have constitutionally to be put higher to the civil and police services. Once their salaries are less than those in corresponding ranks in the civil and police services, their status will get lowered down which is not in the national interest.
If the Seventh Pay Commission recommendations are accepted as such, what will happen in a situation like Kashmir where army is assigned the job as a last resort, will it be asked to work under the local police and administration?
The issue was beyond the scope of the Defence Minister and the Prime Minister must intervene personally since it directly concerns the security of the nation.

  1. Capt saheb, i respect you for being a part of uniform but your party had a golden 45 years to keep the izzat of fauzis above every body else but unfortunately you too failed the defence forces very badly. Fauzis are hungry of respect and they just need a dignified life but that is what they are not being given. We have forgotton the golden words of Chanakya and i quote.." The day a soldier has to beg for his rights...that is the worst for a nation" Politicians remember all his other quotes related to HOW TO STAY IN POWER...but conviniently forget the most important i quoted. Tell me one thing..U and all politicians..." Jab desh hi nahin rahega tou what is the need of brains, crafts and jugaad to manipulate things. Thanks though for showin soliderity with your hapless own.

  2. Whereas it is good that Capt. Amrinder Singh, a senior leader of Congress, is supporting the cause of defence service personnel, yet one can not forget the fact that the whole mess and the sorry state of affairs the serving and the retired soldiers are in at this juncture, is all because of Congress since Independence in general and third pay commission days in particular and disastrous after the sixth pay commission. Modi government has not corrected the situation as much as it was expected and could have easily done with much more grace is still in a position to be fair to the soldiers and this is the time. If it doesn't play fair now, history will be more harsh to him than all leaders of Congress since Independence.

    captain sir,

    it is like playing flute in front of a donkey, it does not comprehend and enjoy the melodious rhythmic sound in the same manner no one in the government is to listen to your genuine voice in favour of ex army and serving soldier

  4. 1.Kudos to DEV Saab and VK Kurana Saab,both of you fired in the bulls eye.Yes we all are in the same boat, bargaining with Modi and his government.But the real culprit is the Indira Congress regime brought down the soldiers life to the pitiable and worse status than coolie.
    2.A wolf is crying for drenching goat.Even now what the captain says is " while a soldier posted at Siachen Glacier will get Rs 38,000 extra salary, an IAS officer posted in Assam will get Rs 58,000 extra. This is disgusting."Notorious and arrogant statement.Whenever they demand from the government anything extra they shamelessly say that they are soldiers.It should be ridiculed.Otherwise they are officers and they will remain officers.If he is a real soldier let him or anybody who claims such bounty from government openly come out and answer these tow questions.
    1.The IAs is not posted in Kargil.I am not worried about him, he is no none for my welfare.But a defence officer and a poor sepoy both are posted in the same place.They live together within a periphery of some square meters.An officer gets Rs.38,000 and a sepoy gets what?.
    2.Does the mother nature know that whether you are an officer and another man working under the same officer is a sepoy?.An officer Or sepoy both are under the same cruel climatical and weather conditions subjected to the same torture.How do you justify that an officer should be paid more and a sepoy gets is adequate? Who is going to talk on behalf him?

  17. What are the options for a new Chief if the present incumbent resigns over the present pay commission issues? Will he stand for the honour of the men he commands?
