The Crux of the problem of 6th CPC Award for Defence Forces.Brig(Retd) K.G.BehlPresident Dehradun Ex-Services League09411101130 1. The Fourth Pay Commission granted Military Pay, called Rank Pay from1.1.1986, which was to be over and above the normal Pay but our financial Punditsgave the Rank Pay but reduced the Substantive Pay of the Rank by an amountequivalent to Rank Pay granted. It not only nullified the affect of giving RankPay over and above the normal Pay, but lowered the substantive Pay by that much ofamount. It amounted to not only getting less emoluments but losing the allowanceswhich accrued on that amount.2. The Fifth Pay Commission doubled the Rank Pay and as a result our substantivePay was reduced by double the amount and accordingly we lost, not only double theamount as Pay but lost the benefit of getting more TA/DA on that amount.3. The sixth Pay Commission has now recommended Rs. 1000/- to PBOR and Rs.6000/-to officers as Military Pay. If the same system is applied as they did for 4th and5thCPC, our Substantive Pay will automatically go down by the same amount andinstead of getting extra money we will be losing that much of amount from ouremoluments and in addition TA/DA and other benefits will get reduced.4. The 6th CPC has sanctioned scales and grade Pay taking into account theearlier substantive Pay being paid as on 1.1.2006, which as explained above isless equivalent to the Rank Pay. When the ‘Basic Pay’ is less all the benefitsaccruing on that are bound to be less accordingly and that is what has happened in6th CPC report, which has lowered the status of Defence officers by putting themin lower scales and granting less ‘Grade Pay’ which works out a couple of thousandrupees lower than their civilian counterparts. It speaks of the injustice doneand needs immediate restoration right from 1.1.1986 0nwards depending on thereductions made as per the rank held from time to time during the period. Ourveteran Expert on the subject Col K.L.Dewan has worked out in detail 18 suchanomalies found in the 6th CPC recommendations which glaringly show as to how andhow much lowering of scales, status and emoluments has been done at differentlevels. Details of the anomalies have been sent to the all concerned. 5. The Military Pay should be over and above the normal Pay and allowances andshould be added to the basic Pay and not reduced. Moreover it should be graded asper rank and be given to all ranks right up to chiefs from Rs. 2000/- to 10,000/-and not as recommended.What a way of doing justice. You give with one hand and takeaway more than that from the other. The Basic Pay reduced from 1.1.1986 berestored and arrears be paid to bring Justice and honour, not only to the DefenceForces but to the Courts Orders as well and avoid contempt of Court. 6. This reduction in Substantive Pay has been upheld as wrong by Hon'ble HighCourt of Kerala in their judgment dated 5.10.1998, and confirmed in their
judgment on 04 Jul 2003 on Review Appeal 518 of 1999. The SLP moved by the Govt.in the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India, against this Kerala High Court judgment hasalso been turned down, being time barred. This reduction in Pay needs to berestored immediately as it forms the very base on which further developments areto take place. 7. The Min of Def. in compliance of the Hon'ble High Court Order, has revisedthe Pay of the Officer Petitioner(Maj Dhanmapalan) and paid him the arrears of Rs.28,031/- but have not amended Para 6 of MOD Instruction of 26.5.87, which thehon;ble Court has held as inadmissible in law and the said Para 6 stands annulledand invalid. Had they amended it every one affected would have got their basic paydeduction restored. Actually not amending it amounts to contempt of Court. The MODare not prepared to pay arrears to other officers under similar circumstances torectify their mistakes, though there are Supreme Court orders and other precedentswhere such mistakes noticed later have been rectified and differences either paidor recovered without reference to any court of law. In such cases persons havingsimilar cases should not be made to go to courts and the concerned Departmentsshould settle the cases accordingly at their own. 8. Some legal professionals have prompted certain retired officers to go todifferent high courts and Hon’ble Supreme Court to demand arrears of Pay due towrong deductions done on the basis of the above Hon’ble Kerala High Courtjudgment. The Supreme Court has asked all high Courts to transfer such cases totheir Court to enable them to give same judgment in all similar cases. But itshould be remembered that they have not gone to courts to challenge the judgmentof the Kerala High Court, which stands and needs to implemented in other similarcases automatically. As such to call it ‘Sub-Judice’ is a misnomer. MOD canrectify the mistakes and pay to all affected officers at their own and need nodirections from the Supreme Court, which has already endorsed the Kerala HighCourt judgment by turning down their SLP.Do you want that the amount of Military Pay recommended bythe 6th CPC be deducted from your basic Pay as was done to 4th and 5th PayCommission Military Pay recommendations? It was given only on paper but notactually. 9. The anomalies in integrated Pay fixation and stagnating career progression werereviewed by Ajai Vikram Singh committee and recommended years of service forpromotion up to Brigadier and increase in cadre strength of Major General andabove. The 6th CPC has not taken any action to bring parity of status in civil andDefence as recommended there in. It can be brought out now. 10. Secondly, the Pay Scale given to a our PBOR are far less than the dutiesassigned to them. You cannot compare persons who work in peace areas and do minorduties in offices with a jawan who works day and night in difficult conditions andtough terrain away from their families, always ready to fight the enemy at thestake of their life. Even in peace they are called to help in natural calamities,riots, floods, droughts etc. He keeps on improving his knowledge and experienceand becomes more than skilled workers but their Pay scale are kept much lower thantheir civilian counter parts. Why not raise their pay scales as per their
