URGENT MODIFICATION/AMENDMENT REQUESTED/NEEDED : TO AFSI 1/S/08
Heading: - PBOR be replaced with "AIRMEN OR OTHER RANKS" (ACs/NCOs/WOs/HON COs RANKS)
Definitions, Para 3:-
(a) PBOR term may be replaced with "AIRMEN OR OTHER RANKS"(ACs/NCOs/WOs/HON COs RANKs), AS the same denotes all ranks OF ACs TO HONY COMM OFFR RANKS including Class IV Civilian Staff and Nc(E), BELOW OFFICER RANKS, which is not proper by any AF standards. The Class IV and NCs(E) form a different class by themselves. Thus clubbing them all into one class gives wrong signals,
such as, ALL OF THEM ARE EITHER GROUP 'D' OR GROUP 'B'. Obviously,PBOR means only there are (1)OFFICERS CLASS and (2)BELOW OFFICERS CLASS.
(h) MSP :- The fixed rates of Rs.6000/-&2000/- may be DISPENSED WITH, as the same reasoning could be deduced as stated at (a) above.
MSP MAY BE FIXED AT A CERTAIN PERCENTAGE TO THE BASIC PAY OF ALL AIRMEN, AS THEIR SERVICES ARE BATTLE PRONE. (The High Level Empowered Committee headed by the Then RM Shri Sharad Pawar opined that the AF Personnel's services are distinct and a SPECIAL DISPENSATION IS NEEDED (even for their pensions). Therefore, it would be just to fix MSP
(1) PREFERABLY 50% OF BASIC PAY OF AIRMEN/OTHER RANKS (DOUBLE THE RATE OF NER ALLOWANE @25% to the basic pay GIVEN TO CIVILIAN EMPLOYEES(WHOSE SERVICES ARE NOT BATTLE PRONE), OR
(2) The Same Rates given to the MNS officers (whose services are not BATTLE PRONE).
( j) GCB pay existed for long. Should find a distinct place.
Para 5(C) MSP: Same reasoning as stated at (h) above.
Para 13. ENTRY LEVEL SCALES.
ALL SCALES BE RAISED BY ONE STEP ABOVE.
THAT IS STARTING WITH A RECRUIT'S GRADE PAY AT Rs.1900/-, AC - 2000/, LAC-2400/ AND CPL-2800/- IN PB-1.
SGTS BE MOVED UPTO PB-2, GP 4200/- AND SGTS (TECH WITH DIP AND EDN INST)WITH BE MOVED TO 4600/- GRADE PAY, JWO TO 4800/- WO TO 5400/ IN PB-2 AND MOVE MWO AND HON COS TO PB-3.
PARA 14. PROMOTION:-
The present dispensation of 3% increase of pay on promotion is unjustified. This is given for annual increment. Annual increment and Promotion are TWO different entities. Hence at least a 10% increase in existing pay is justifiable on account of hard earned promotions/ACP/DACPs.
Para 15. ACP : In the present form it is detrimental to the interests of airmen. May be formulated on the lines of orders issued in respect of civilian employees.
The present Scale of pay of JWO X Group- 5530-7780 appear to be erroneously printed.
This may be corrected to 5770-8290.
The pay scales for SGT (Dip) and Edn Inst are not mentioned. May be included now.
