7th pay panel: Captain hails defence chiefs

Chandigarh: Punjab Congress chief Capt Amarinder Singh on Sunday supported objections raised by the three services chiefs over the anomalies in pay scales of defence personnel in the 7th Pay Commission.
"There is blatant discrimination with defence services in pay scales, which is condemnable," he said in a statement. He hailed the stand taken by the three services chiefs. "Just because our soldiers are disciplined and dedicated to serving the nation, should not mean that they be discriminated against," he said. "We owe our peaceful lives to those guarding our borders and taking bullets for us. We must have gratitude towards them".
"Nobody among the bureaucrats knows about the hostile conditions in which our soldiers are made to work and that is the reason there is such a bias against the defence forces," he said, pointing out that according to the recommendations while a soldier posted at Siachen Glacier will get Rs 38,000 extra salary, while an IAS officer posted in Assam will get Rs 58,000 over and above his salary. "I have been seriously suggesting to the defence minister that the bureaucrats, who have habitually been creating hurdles and hindrances in providing better pay to the defence personnel, should be made to serve in Siachen for at least a day," he said, while asking the minister to stand by the soldiers and get the anomalies sorted.
Capt Amarinder said this was not only an issue of salary to the defence personnel but also their status vis-a-vis other civilian services, including the police and the administrative. He said that the defence services had constitutionally be put higher than the civil and police services.

  1. While a soldier posted at Siachen Glacier will get Rs 38,000 extra salary, while an IAS officer posted in Assam will get Rs 58,000 over and above his salary.
    Captain Amrinder should correct his statement honestly speaking.He says when "soldier is posted in Siachen" is wrong.He should say when an officer posted is Siachen.What about the poor sepoy? What he gets is justified.When ever they demand anything from Government the officer become soldier otherwise they always remain officer.Jhoot math bolan saab,Hum lokh sepoyian hai aur hamarey leah koi nahi hai,yeh hai schhayi.

  3. At present all the Defence personnel are totally demoralised in all respects. And it is high time for them (Defence Forces) break their silence - drop the weapons, leave the barracks, leave the Siachan area and leave the J&K area and come out to the streets and show their strength - not to listen the so called Politicians to attend the natural calamities, assist to maintain the law & order (like J&K). I never advise and recommend the youths to join the Defence Forces ( to spoil their lives )

    1. Really, thoughts expressed are praise-worthy, but, then who will defend the Country and maintain its "SHAAN & BAAN" If the Country is not secured what are meant for Pay & allces for all us.
