The triservices pay commission cell, TRIPAS have advised Chiefs of Staff Committee COSC not to implement the 7 CPC for the defence forces till the time issue of of allowances, DACP for PBORs and NFU for officers etc are decidedand implementation orders are issued by the MoD.
Though there may be delay in implementation of 7CPC, it would be helpful in the long run. In case 7CPC is implemented without finalising the just demands of the services, there are higher probability that none of the demands of services will be implemented. Service personnel will be made to run from pillar to post even for trivial issues like good conduct badge allowance, ration allowance etc.
TRIPAS has recommended that 7CPC for pensioners may be implemented as and when Army instructions are issued.
The TRIPAS has also recommended that COSC to get a guarantee from the PM that several of non monetary recommendation that are made to improve overall efficiency of the central government and improving defence personnel's opportunity to get secondment or absorption in other organizations shall also be implemented in next six months.
It is learnt that COSC has accepted the recommendation of TRIPAS and has conveyed to the government that 7CPC shall not be implemented till issues are resolved. COSC have also apprised the government of seriousness of these issues.
