Here are my thoughts on spc report published in Live fist BLOG on 22 Dec 2008 at 1040 AM under the title of 6th PC finish line under the ID of anonymous:
The summary rejection of grant of uniform grade pay to the military at par with their civil services counterparts is fraught with grave consequences as it creates an everlasting rift/disparity between the civil serices & the military. As it stands today ,there prevails a hostile attitudes even between para military & military services due to bungling by the Pay commission . It is glaringly evident that the civil/Admin services have reaped maximum benefits from 6th Pay commision report while the Govt finds it difficult to fulfill the genuine aspirations of the military personnel.
It is time for the service Chiefs to take a firm stand on the just demands & be prepared to resign their posts . I wonder if any succesive chiefs would be prepared to face the wrath of middle rank officers who make up 70 % of the Officers corps in all the three services.
It is time for ESM / veterans to unite for OROP demand .Remember today's serving are tomorrow's Veterans.
