The Supreme Court has issued a contempt
notice to the Army chief and Defence
Secretary for not implementing the court's
order on the 5th pay commission. This comes
after some retired army officers approached the
Court over discrepancies in pensions.
The apex court in October 2008 had said that
there should not be any discrimination between
pre-1996, post-1996 defence pensioners. However, the Defence
Ministry did not implement the order.
And so we ask, are the armed forces being given a raw deal
over the Pay Commission?
Tonight, on Verdict, join Vikram Chandra, for a discussion
