Diwali Bonanza for Army: Indian soldiers to get 10% arrears in 7th pay commission

New Delhi: Cheering up the Indian Armed Forces further, Indian government has announced to pay 10% arrears to the Indian soldiers. 
According to a report of the Defence Ministry, the President has allowed for the payment of arrears. Calculated from January 2016, arrears will be 10% of the current pay of the soldiers, including dearness allowance. 
However, the Army has been unhappy with the approval of the cabinet of the 7th pay commission recommendations, as it does not take into consideration the demands which were put forward by the forces. Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar had assured that all the particulars mentioned would be taken up at the highest level.
Parrikar also held various meetings with members of Armed Forces Pay Commission Cell and Service Chiefs to discuss about the same. 
The soldiers are expected to receive their interim payment before October 30.

Hi sir modi ji kyu armed forces ko bewkuf bana rahe ho aap. Dena hi tha to pura hi arear de dete. Aaj jin jawano ki wajah se aapka seena 56" ka huwa hai. Unke sath kam se kam aisa mat karo.


Why do you call it "bonanza"? Its nothing but the arrears of their salaries that the Defence Forces are yet to get, that too at the rate of 6CPC rates equal to 10 months salary difference. Haven't you noticed that its only the Armed Forces who are not getting their 7CPC pay due to serious anomalies? Does this country want to pay its soldiers much less than a police constable?
