  1. Good ,Good - Bonus to soldiers (mily for its performence) as being given to civil service for no productivity or poor/nonperformance/non productivity!
    Sadly -It is called non- productivity linked bonus.
    Govts are so weak and fragile in this forum of democracy ,they cannot survive without conceeding to never ending and all sorts of demands of unions.
    Thus, these go on multiplying .see- leave encashment ,LTA ,Transport allowence ,.........etc.goes on and on .no limit and no end.At least 7 cpc made an attempt to cut down on these to all .
    Mily has to get it naturally and legitimately ,because civil service is given.
    It would a great pleasure to see a day when mily is given on its merits of mily service rather than being given since every person in civil govt service is given.

    1. Please don't use mily for military there is no such abbreviation in the dictionary. Keep the word in high enthusiasm.

    2. @alex ji-
      1.In internet expressions ,particularly ,comments are expressed in short form with a view to convey meaning and avoid long verbose exp.
      2.In this age of computers ,some anciant dictionary abbreviations are not adequate and out of context. .communication is the idea in these matters.Not some approach of school teacher and student way.
      3.Mily for military is easily understandable.Mily includes Army,Air Force & Navy.Instead of saying all 3 it is simply mily
      4.mily distinguished from civil.
      5.Since we are branded with some poor english phrases of past ,my effort is towards bringing the change with awareness and usage.
      *** Some Phrases like ex-service ,pre- mature ....etc are neither appropriate ,nor graceful - even deregatory to an extent.These can be better phrased, retired military ,simply, retirement after terms of aggrement...etc.
      Names of cities and states have undergone change to Mumbai ,Chennai ....
      Therefore why not?
      Some words and Phrases can be better described as Indian Military Service(IMS like IAS ,IPS ,IFS ,IDAS,IRS.....etc
      Thus let us be pragmatic and stretch thinking faculties - not stagnate as a sort of captives or prisoners of anciant phrases .More as enlightened citizens.

  2. A good beginning.
    Earlier only Defence civilians in Army Base Workshops and similar like institutions were eligjble snd Got Bonus.The Fauji soldiers on the other hand were not only Denied Bonus but also had to work extra without any compensation. A Defence civilian who works alongside the Fauji, He also gets overtime.
    This attitude should change and Faujis also compensated accordingly.

  3. What's news about arrears when it will be ableWhat's news about arrears when it will be paid

  4. What's news about arrears when it will be ableWhat's news about arrears when it will be paid dl33 7cpc arrears have become timepass for delay tactics
