7th CPC : No specific Court direction for Military Service Pay (MSP) equally to all ranks - Rajya Sabha reply

Military Service Pay (MSP) equally to all ranks – There is no specific Court Direction 

Ministry of Defence 
Grant of Military Service Pay 

Delhi High Court in its order dated 28 November 2017 has not given any specific direction to grant Military Service Pay (MSP) equally to all ranks. It may be informed that the court in its order mentioned that the conduct of the petitioners in withholding material information and at the same time, trying to invoke equities under Article 226 of the Constitution of India is deprecated.

The 7thCentral Pay Commission (CPC) had considered all aspects with regard to applicability of MSP including the rates while making its recommendations. The Government after carefully considering the recommendations of the 7thCPC in respect of MSP has accepted the same and have already been notified. 

This information was given by Raksha Rajya Mantri Dr. Subhash Bhamre in a written reply to Shri Mahendra Singh Mahrain Rajya Sabha today.

  1. How MSP can be given equally to all ranks in the Army? I have observed this peculiar thought process only in the minds of lower ranks of ex defence personnel and that too the idea originates after their discharge from service. An imaginary feeling that all ranks are equal, every one to be equally paid and nobody deserves higher payment. Agreed that after retirement, they get only a paltry pension and for that who is to be blamed ? They have decided their own fate while in service for not aspiring for a better life by earning all departmental promotions that come in their way and not leaving service after taking voluntary retirement.
