Centre notifies pending pay hike for armed forcesNew Delhi, May 4, 2017: The government on Wednesday notified the pending implementation of the 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) for the armed forces, which was kept in abeyance after the Army, Navy and IAF last year strongly complained that their persisting salary anomalies had not been rectified by the panel.

Defence sources said the government has conveyed to the armed forces that the "remaining major anomalies will be considered and addressed separately" by the government.

The Union Cabinet in a major decision on Wednesday did approve the retention of the earlier "percentage-based regime" for calculation of the disability pension for ex-servicemen, which the 7th CPC had held should be scrapped and replaced by "a slab-based system".

"The decision, which will benefit existing and future defence pensioners, would entail an additional expenditure of approximately Rs 130 crore per annum," said the government.
