SCPC: Demoralisation of the defence Forces

Dear Sir,
Unresolved pay anomalies for over 20 years, non- inclusion of Services representative in the 6th Central Pay Commission despite the services being the largest workforce of the government are inexplicable. The Committee of Secretaries inventing more anomalies when tasked to resolve some of differences arising out of the Pay Commission report and the precedence conscious bureaucracy failing to see the origin of badges of ranks of the Police and the CPOs and equating them with the Army’s ranks are strange. The present controversy regarding the manipulation of the Special Army Instructions on the Revised Pay Scales therefore need to be seen in this background. These deliberately created anomalies appear to be more sinister in design than that meets the eye. It is either that at the top, a decision has been taken to cut the Services to size and bring them at par with the Central Police Organisations or this is a deliberate attempt to demoralize the Defence services, maybe at the behest of some inimical foreign power, in which case, some of the bureaucrats are involved in this mission.

This being a matter of national importance, the citizens of this country have a right to know the facts. The Government needs to come clean on this on the floor of the Parliament. If that doesn’t happen, the only alternative is to investigate the entire matter by a judicial enquiry headed by a sitting Supreme Court Judge.

Thanking you,
Yours Sincerely,
Brigadier V Mahalingam (Retired)
