Why is Pranab Mukherjee so important - because he is heading a three-member ministerial committee looking into the issue of pay hike of armed forces or Defence Forces.

As per the news reported by The Hindu, Mukherjee and Chidambaram were together for about an hour during which they are understood to have explored ways to address the issue to the satisfaction of the forces.

The Defence Services, led by their Chiefs, are up in arms over the 6th Pay Commission recommendations, alleging that it compromised their status and honour.

Emerging from the meeting at the External Affairs Minister's South Block office, Chidambaram refused to comment on the deliberations, saying it was his first meeting with Mukherjee on the issue.

Mukherjee on Monday said he had discussed the matter with the Prime Minister and that he hoped the issue would be settled shortly.

The committee, which also includes Antony and Chidambaram, was set up by the Prime Minister on September 25 in the wake of deep resentment in the armed forces, who complained that there were "anomalies" in the Sixth Pay Commission recommendations and that it had lowered the status of their officers.

With todays declaration of pay band for teachers, it is very ovious that even they will reach a pay band of PB-4 equivalent at 13 years of service, but Govt is dithering in giving PB-4 to Lt Cols and equivalent. It is interesting to note that Teachers will be getting PB-4 equivalent grade with AGP og Rs 9000/- in 13 years of service, which even a Brig in Defence Forces after 26 years of service will get agrade pay of Rs 8900/-

This is a good morale booster for this country, and if reactions of Armed Forces also becomes similar to our worthy Politicians and Bureaucrats then whom will we blame, I don't know.

Wish you all happy and fruitful trading and investing activities with safety! = = = Post a Comment
