separate pay panel for forces
The much-trumpeted announcement in the
Budget that the government has fulfilled the longstanding need of the
retired armed forces personnel below officer rank (PBOR) is a flash in

of over 12 lakh PBOR are yet to be announced, it has been understood
that the "unreasonable restriction" of completing 33 years of
service to earn full pension has not been waived in this Budget.
