@ Maj Navdeep


MSP became operative from 01 Sep 2008, right? If some officers (albeit retd) are being given benefit of MSP from 01 Jan 06 thats wonderful !! But.. why deny to the serving lot? Also Maj Gen upwards MSP is contained in stepped up basic and NOT for the lot below, isn't it discriminatory? If Justice Shrikrishna thought MSP was a 'new' element and could not be given retrospectively then was Grade pay for all (incl civilians) an existing element at that time?

Surely things are NEVER fair in life and expecting fairness (even from so called model employer) is pure naivity
