Armed forces’ wait for salary hike may get longer




NEW DELHI: From IAS officers to peons, 33 lakh central government civilian employees will get enhanced salaries with arrears on September 1 under the seventh central pay commission (CPC). But the 14 lakh strong armed forces are likely to be left twiddling their thumbs with unrevised salaries.
Defence ministry sources say the three Service chiefs have also sent a representation to PM Narendra Modi to underline the widespread dismay in the armed forces over the implementation of the 7th CPC without apparently resolving most of the "core issues" raised by them.
Despite being contacted by TOI , the defence ministry refused to comment.
"Once the notification for the armed forces is issued, it will have to be followed by the drafting of the separate Army, Navy and IAF instructions. They, in turn, will go to the Controller General of Defence Accounts for detailed calculations. All this will take time," said a MoD source.
This delay comes close after Air Chief Marshal Arup Raha, in his capacity as the chairman of the chiefs of staff committee and backed by General Dalbir Singh Suhag and Admiral Sunil Lanba, wrote to the PM that at least "four main pay anomalies" were yet to be resolved for the armed forces despite several representations.
"The letter to the PM was followed by another one to defence minister (Manohar Parrikar)," said the source. The armed forces have a deep-seated grouse over successive pay commissions eroding their "status, parity and equivalence'' as compared to their civilian counterparts.

The government must address the grievances of the armed forces. They have never let the country down whether it was war, internal disturbances or natural calamities. Jagdish Mada.n
The recent letters, for instance, raises the "artificial suppression of entry-level pay in each rank" for the armed forces. Another major point is the denial of higher military service pay (MSP) for junior commissioned officers (JCOs). The armed forces also have "a huge problem" with the approach to calculate disability pension for their personnel, which has reverted to the earlier "slab based" system from the "percentage based" one brought in by the 6th CPC.
The refusal to grant non-functional upgrade to military officers denied promotions due to the lack of vacancies in the steeply-pyramidal structure of the armed forces also remains a major heartburn.

  1. Defence personnel will never be late anywhere to perform their duty BUT Mod or CDA WILL ALWAYS be late to pay salary or pension to them.

  2. I think People of our great Nation know very well the way Armed Forces are being treated, demoralised, cornered and tested for their patience,by the concerned elements, to compel them to think of better resorts to restore their place, dignity and justice.

  4. My dear Army/ex Army people, I read your comments which are full with sorrow. There are a lot of problems but there are rays of son too. Modiji gave us OROP which was awaited for last 40 yrs. We should give credit of this to Sh Modi. Here are ex army person who can struggle for armed services person welfare like pay etc. The civilian beraucracy's behaviour had been against us since long. 3rd pay commission strated injustice with which was held during reign of Smt Indra Gandhi. Modiji is in our favour and we should continuously try to take benefits of Armed Forces from him.

  5. I remember a teacher of UP who teaches his students even on sunday and holidays. When asked he told that when a soldier can give 24 hrs duty why should a teacher not fulfill his duties even drawing more salary than a soldier. Really common people and bueracats do not know the reality of the soldier life. The public servants should visit places like sichin and other typical areas for sometime in order to experience the reality of soldier life.
