Sub: Removal of ambiguity in fixation of pay of re-employed ex-servicemen and grant of the same benefit extended to commissioned officers who are below officers rank.
The above demand was discussed as Item No.26 of the Standing Committee meeting of the National Council (JCM) held on 7-3-2019. During the course of discussion the Staff side was informed that the issue is in final stage in consultation with the Ministry of Defence and necessary instructions are expected to be issued very shortly.
However to our knowledge no Government order has been issued to implement the demand of Ex-servicemen. Therefore it is once again requested that the discrimination meted to the PBOR’s may be removed and necessary Government Orders may please be issued to remove the anomaly / ambiguity in the fixation of pay of re employed ex-servicemen.
