Indian paramilitary forces’ personnel decry step-motherly treatment

Jammu, November 15 (KMS): In what appears to be a blatant discrimination between the personnel of Indian army and paramilitary forces in terms of perks and privileges, paramilitary forces’ personnel have called upon the Modi government to restore pension benefits and cash money for the slain personnel of Central Paramilitary Forces (CPMFs).

Addressing a press conference in Jammu, D.K Chauhan, general secretary of the CPMFs Welfare Association said, “The government had introduced New Pension Scheme (NPS) to the civil employees joining Government service after January 2004 and BSF was also combined with civil employees.” He added that the duty of BSF is very tough and BSF personnel deserve benefits at par with the soldiers of Indian army.

He also demanded exemption of GST and functioning of Welfare and Rehabilitation Board (WARB) at district level under supervision of Registered Pensioners Associations.

He further said that all facilities should be provided to CPMFs at par with Army and equal incentives.
