    There's no free education. Its subsidized according to rank. Officers are subsidized a little, JCOs and ORs are subsidized more.
    Free medical care for life, free grocery(vegetables+cheese+milk+eggs+meat+stuff like bournvita etc), subsidized good from canteen, booze at 50% discount, free rail ticket to your home town twice a year for complete family, 50% concession of all air tickets for you and family.

    To top it all, an untainted uniform(virtually no corruption compared to civilians) to decorate you and give you an extra edge over everyone else.

    REALLY..!!

    Pakistani Cadets get a basic pay of Rs 6000/- during training. This was also done just a few years back when the current govt announced that the LOWESTPay any LABOR/WORKER shall get in Pakistan MUST NOT be less than Rs 6000/-
    Travel and moving charges are paid by Army for every posting.

    This is similar with Pakistan military.

    rather this is practiced the world over.

    Unbelievable!

    This coupled with the almost half the change rate of Pakistani and india Rupee means that if Pakistani Lieutenant has to be paid a similar amount, then he has to be paid something around Pak Rupee 80000/- per month!

    Can you guys stop the dick measuring contest, please? Kashmir and Balochistan (which infact has nothing in common with the Kashmir issue) has nothing to do with this thread.

    i hope this is only applicable to the JCO, NCO and Soldiers, right? Not the Officers?

    No FREE nothing on this side, but the rail/air tkts with 50% concession (On the100& FARE only, excluding the taxes, they are paid in full by militarymen), only for three times in a year, after that, it's just like any other civilian.

    As of today, after the pay was increased 145% over a period of 5 years and after sacrificing a whole lot of lives and after someone actually thought that it's high time that a handsome increase is effected to military pays, a Lt might earn something to around 20K per month, gross.

    Applicable to officers as well as JCOs and ORs. JCOs and ORs get free electricity and housing , whereas officers have to pay for it, though it is highly subsidized(close to 200 per month for a 3 bedroom house + garage).

    Bcs our military keeps to themselves and never ever tried to capture power. I think Najam Sethi's problem is with PA trying to run a 'state within a state'.

    With the pay increase this has gone up to approx Rs 26000/- (for Lt, not 2/Lt who earns lesser).

    So with a conversion rate of 1 PKR= 0.581112399 INR

    This makes 15108.9224 Indian rupees.

    Batain phir bhi hamaray fauji he suntay hain, way to go 'Pakistanis'!

    This is still too less... this much can be earned by a 12th pass by working in a BPO in India.

    My concern was regarding the people accusing the military for getting plots, perks and being 'highly' paid.

    And NG, let's not get into this 'state within a state' thing, already been discussed and refuted a million times on this forum. Search for it or you can go through this:
