NFU for Servicemen and Ex- Servicemen
This petition had 7,844 supporters
NFU (Non Functional Upgrade) scheme was implemented for Organised Group ‘A’ Services after the Sixth Central Pay Commission, but the Armed Forces were excluded from NFU without assigning any reason.
The Ministry of Defence, while favouring NFU for defence-civilians has opposed NFU for the armed Forces. One of the reasons given by Cabinet Secretary's Committee, in 2011, in not making any recommendations on the issue of NFU for the armed forces was, 'The armed forces officers get Military Service Pay and various allowances..... which are not available to civilian officers'.
The Armed Forces are constantly exposed to dangers, even during the so called 'peace times' as is evident from the daily news.
The Armed Forces are the last institution in which the nation still has some faith left. They are also the last resort whenever things seem to go out of hand for the civil administration.
Let us not demean and demoralise them and force them to go to courts for what should be theirs without even asking for it.
Please support this petition to implement NFU for the Armed Forces without any delay.
