Forces play down differences with Govt. on 6th Pay Commission anomalies

By Khabrein.Info Correspondent,

New Delhi, Sept 28, 2008: Armed forces tried to play down their differences with the government on 6th pay Commission anomalies. This may have been done to control the damage already done by the fact that differences on the issue of anomalies in 6th Pay commission came into open like never before.

Armed forces chiefs had made it public that they are not going to implement the 6th Pay Commission recommendations in its present form. They had clearly said that the discrimination in payment of officials in armed forces viz a viz civilian officials was unacceptable.

There was also talked of armed forces personnel going to celebrate Divali as black day.

But luckily it seems that the direct intervention of Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh from New York broke the ice and defence minister AK Antony gave his consent to form a panel to look into the anomalies in pay structure of armed forces.

There was also pressure from Defence Minister AK Antony on armed forces chief to implement the 6th pay commission from this month. He had made it amply clear that if the forces chief do not implement it, defence ministry will issue order in this regard.
