This decision would affect around 1.12 lakh military personnel including 87,646 JCOs and 25,434 personnel of the equivalent ranks from the Navy and the Indian Air Force.

The Commission was of the view that the rate of MSP as a percentage of the existing pay has to be maintained in case of officers (up to the level of Brigadier / equivalent) as well as PBORs because the difficulties faced in field situations by both these categories are similar.
