What to expect from Pay Commission review committee(s) ?

Notwithstanding the fact that there is no member from the uniformed community, here is what may be coming the way of the defence services according to hints from the powers that be :-

a) Introduction of another pay band or additional step up
b) Improvement in Grade Pay (and hence the status) vis-à-vis civil service officers
c) A better modified parity between post and pre-1-1-2006 retirees : A step towards one-rank one-pay regime
d) A better Military Service Pay (MSP) for PBORAnd some minor tinkering here and there
