Our men are guarding the Indo-Nepal Himalayan border and also serving at high altitude, but the payment given to a paramilitary personnel is very less compared to an army jawan.

"We, therefore, wish to register our protest and send the message to the government that our pay should be equivalent to that given in the army," said Ranbir Singh, Nation Coordinator, Confederation of Ex-paramilitary Forces Welfare Associations.

He said the demonstrators will also press their demand for opening paramilitary schools in all states.
