Discrimination in Structure of Giving MSP
Military Service Pay (MSP) is being paid to the Armed Forces Personnel w.e.f. 1st September, 2008. It is a compensation paid to the Armed Forces personnel as a recognition for the intangible aspects linked to the special conditions of their service. On recommendation of 6th Central Pay Commission, MSP was introduced for the first time in respect of Armed Forces.
The MSP being paid to Armed Forces Personnel is in two slabs:-
(i) For Officers – Rs.6,000 per month
(ii) For JCOs/OR – Rs.2,000 per month.
However, Government has separately provided a number of allowances based on risks and hardships involved at a location / in an operation, such as High Altitude Allowances, Field Area / Modified Area Allowances, Counter Insurgency Allowance etc.
This information was given by Defence Minister Shri Manohar Parrikar in a written reply to Shri Mahendra Singh Mahra in Rajya Sabha today.
