Government rejected army demand to increase Military Service Pay

Government rejected army demand to increase Military Service Pay

The Ministry of Finance has rejected the demand for enhancing the pending military service pay of the armed forces (MSP). According to the news agency, this is very resentful in the army. The military headquarters asked the government to reconsider its decision immediately. This decision will affect the 1.12 million military personnel. These include 87,646 junior commissioned officers (JCOs) and 25434 officers of the same rank and navy and air force officers.

MSP is the honor to Hard Work:

  • Sources told the news agency that the army had demanded that the monthly military service pay would be increased from Rs. 5500 to Rs. 10 thousand. The finance ministry rejected the proposal to increase the MSP of officers of JCOs and similar rank and officers of the Air Force.
  • If the government accepted this proposal, then it would have to spend Rs 610 crores annually. MSP is given to honor the services of the military personnel and to honor the hard work. It was implemented in the Sixth Pay Commission.
  • Now MSP has two categories. For one officer and for the other Military personnel and JCO The Seventh Pay Commission had fixed 15,500 MSP between 5200 and Joint Brigadier rank for JCOs.
  • According to the news, an army officer told on condition of anonymity that the army is constantly pressurizing the MSP to be given to JCOs because they are Gazetted Officers of Group B and they are in the army at the command and control level Plays a key role in the structure of In such a situation, it is not right to give equal MSP to the soldiers. This is injustice.
  • According to the source, the army kept this matter in front of the defense ministry with full force. The defense ministry was also in favor of this demand with the three armies.
  • In November last year, the Army Chief had said that JCOs were gazetted officers and they rejected the 7-year old note, in which JCO was called a non gazetted officer.
