6thPC: An update
Chairman, Chiefs of Staff Committee Admiral Sureesh Mehta met Defence Minister AK Antony on Monday to discuss the various new anomalies that have allegedly cropped up in the special pay instructions issued by the MoD in mid-October to the three services. He has personally conveyed to Antony that the instructions contain anomalies and deviations that did not exist before, and are over and above the four core demands that the Chiefs of Staff Committee has placed before the Group of Ministers. The two main points are of course the redefinitions of Rank Pay and Military Service Pay. Antony has apparently said he’ll “look into these”. Don’t know how that’s going to work out. Will the seven anomalies be added to the terms of reference of the GoM? Unlikely. So now what?
