NEW DELHI: 

HIGHLIGHTS

  1. The armed forces had flagged anomalies in pay panel recommendations
  2. These include common pay matrix at entry level, disability allowance
  3. Services satisfied with minister's response, said Air Chief Arup Raha
 Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar today assured the armed forces that the anomalies in the 7th Pay Commission will be taken up at the highest level. Mr Parrikar is expected to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi to address the points raised by service chiefs, sources said.

After meeting the Defence Minister this morning, Air Chief Arup Raha said the Defence Minister is aware of all issues and "has assured to resolve them at the earliest". The services, he said, are "satisfied" with the response.

On September 9, the Army, Navy and the Air Force had issued a signal to all formations, saying implementation of the 7th pay commission was being kept in abeyance till the anomalies are addressed.

Mr Parrikar had asked the three services to implement the hiked salaries as the government examined and addressed the concerns flagged by the forces.

Top Defence Ministry sources told NDTV that the minister would impress on the government to address the key anomalies at the earliest.

These include a common pay matrix at the entry level for both civilian and military services, removing anomalies in disability allowance between civil and military.

According to the 7th pay commission, the civilian bureaucracy and the para-military gets more disability allowance.

  1. It will be better for Mr Parrikar to pull up his socks and tighten his belt. He got his last chance to prove his stand as the DM. Failing which, he will lose the trust of the troops once for all.

  2. How can we believe the people who use their ignorance as a convenient tool that suggest fooling around. Can the RM spell it all once what he is seized about?

  3. In a democracy flexibility of top order is the key for any leadership to run a country so diverse like India.Only majority in parliament is not at all enough to call every shot your way. In Democracy a leader has to be like rubber and not like iron or glass...but unfortunately trend since independence baaring a few capable leaders like vajpai ji and lal bahadur shashtri...almost all other leaders to me had been self serving and always feeling most capable..most followed...most adorable...mist feared...and so on and so forth withiut even using 1 percent of gray matter that being a leader in diverse and more than complicated nation needs great patience and hell lot of capabilities to complete 5 years in powwr and to be capable of being liked by people for next term. Somehow problem is that the "Chashma" one wears before elections is a Chashma of request, begging and promises (thats ok in democracy) but the moment power comes calling this "Chashma" changes to..arrogance..., me the only best...and follow me or perish. And thats where the problems loes. Once in power one feels very insecure from even very dearly close people who participated with full josh to elevate him to present level and then this insecurity drives the leader in a direction of isolation and doubt..mand this coupled with intoxication of power or absolute feeling of power makes one complecent on many counts because every one seems toeing the line to his/her diktats and slowly a feelig creeps in that..God is also below me. This is the most dangerous state of being a human in arrogance and every thing starts going wrong at this point because every legitimate aspiration of any and every one ( except of those who are in his/her inner circle) is taken as unjust and if resisted then a defiance...and what can be the result is not difficult to fathom.

    Clarity....vision...compession ..and more importantly great patience and flexibility are the keys but if they are missing then what can happen is as good a guess with me as with you all. We all love our nation and fauz has and had the most loyal respect for political leadership irrespective of which party had been in power and who had been the PM or president. I think leadership owes a great deal of respect and consideration for this patriot ehelone of governance and stability because if they dont desrve this with undying resolve for protecting this nation from enemies at all costs in last 69 years...then no one else deserves any thing ...not even top leaderahip.

  6. Where is the time for our Hon. PM to listen the problems and hardships faced by the soldiers. He has forgotten what he has said during his election speech.Dear PM now please listen at least once and give your last word on the subject.

  7. Though our worthy RM has assured, it is doubtful that any one will listen him. In past also many things were assured by him but no one (PM or FM) listened him. So be sure nothing is going to happen.

  10. Do you believe these politicians, I dont. Never accept their promises unless given in writing. Let the 7 CPC do not have the same fate as 5&6 CPCs. History repeats because man repeats his mistakes.

  11. Nothing -- repeat absolutely nothing has changed on ground which could be factored in to give any more credibility and trustworthiness to Mr. Parrikar since Feb / Mar 2015. He neither understands nor takes trouble to understand the issues of soldiers and veterans and it is not too wrong to say that he has no say in the cabinet and talks big only in the absence of Mr Arun Jaitley whom he dare not see him in the eyes - forget arguing and reasoning with him. Expect nothing from RM and just hope FM with a nudge from the PM agrees to settle some of the issues. Forget what RM has done to OROP and 7 CPC , he has not been able to implement Supreme Court mandated minimum pension issue of doing away with 33 years service. Honestly, wish we have another RM.

    1. Your assessment is correct.Obviously Parrikar neither has any say at PM/FM/cabinet level on these matters nor does he has any control over MOD staff on related issues, where his orders/instrs are casually ignored.Due to this lack of standing he is unable to take substantive decisions &
      therefore keeps making false promises & seeking discussion to keep the issues pending but alive.He is not apt at dealing with these Goons around him.Any self respecting person in his situation would call it a day & quit to get out of this chakraview.

  12. ONE MAN COMMISSION ON OROP IS ONLY TO TURCULATION OF TIME. ONE MAN COMMISSION HAS NO MORE POWERS THEN GOVT. IT NOT IS UNDER STOOD THAT FINANCE MINISTER IS KNOWEN THE DEFINATION OF OROP. HE SHOULD READ OUR KUSHIARY COMMITTEE ON ONE RANK ONE PENSION. OUR DEF MINISTER SHOULD BE STRONG IN THE WELFAIRE OF THE TROOPS. I HOPE THAT GOVT DO BETTER.
