new Delhi: The nation's Chief Defense Chairman (CDS) Bipin Rawat mentioned on Tuesday that the rise in finances allocation for pension of Armed Forces personnel can’t be supported and the practicality of elevating the retirement age of troopers to 58 years All three elements of the military are learning to research. There are two classes within the military: officers and jawans. Officers can retire between 54 and 58 years of age.
CDS instructed reporters, "He (officer) is totally protected (financially) until the age of 58 years. <! –
At that age, his kids normally stand on their toes or are about to occur. The drawback is with the troopers. ”He mentioned that after recruiting the troopers on the age of 18-19 years, the military retires them in 37–38 years. He mentioned, "At that age he suddenly realizes that his salary has reduced to half and his free housing and affordable healthcare and education have gone."
Rawat mentioned, "I feel one third of the military personnel can serve for 58 years. Today you might be sending a younger man dwelling in 38 years and he lives for 70 years. Therefore, 30-32 years of pension is given for 17 years of service. Why not give him 38 years of service after which give him a pension for 20 years. We are reversing this pattern. ''
