Just hours after pay hike confrontation from political and official sector started. Armed forces and other than IAS personal are asking for equality and similar pay.

Two of the members of the panel have given clear findings. Both are neutral as they are not from any of the services. They have come to the conclusion that proper justice has to be given on the issue of pay and services parity.

Armed with the Union Cabinet’s decision of accepting 7th pay commission recommendations, a confederation representing lakhs of officers from other 20 civil services–including Indian Police Service (IPS) asked the government, on Wednesday, to give equal pay and job-related opportunities enjoyed by those in IAS.

The association consisting of officers from IPS, IRS, IFS, IAAS and FROA (representing nine railway services).

While the three-member 7th Central Pay Commission, which had already submitted its report on 19 November, 2015, was divided over the issue of financial and career-related edge given to IAS officers as against those belonging to the other services.

Authorities had to explain “IAS officers currently get a “2-year edge over” other services”

So, dilemma will always haunt management to be or not to be with the creamy layer of the management.
