    Every week?!

    We do it on daily basis, i am sure it happen in indian military too. Duty Officers (not necessarily the Officer, but JCOs and NCOs are also made Duty Officers), check the food on daily basis. But there's a difference between checking and dining.

    Why not?

    Dont yours pay taxes?

    Whats so un-officer like? I have seen video clippings of US Army in Iraq where both soldiers and officers eat in the same mess hall.This whole 'officer-soldier' divide is a throwback of our colonial past when British officers and Indian men that they commanded lived separate lives and did not mix.

    I mean for every week two junior officers are alloted and they keep in rotating,it happens everyday.If a soldier makes any complaint it is taken care of.The JCO/NCO messes are very clean,the plates almost shine.

    It is good it happens the same in Pakistan Army as expected from a professional force,though in other islamic countries in the Arab world I have heard colorful stories of their armies.

    Ok. The same is the case here.

    i think you missed this part in my post:
    So no need to extrapolate my comments. Pakistan Army is known for valuing it's soldiers, no wonder our soldiers have always made their Officers proud. In any military, you cant earn respect by barking commands, rather by ruling the hearts of your under commands, which every officer of Pakistan Army masters in. i am sure the same would be the case in indian army also, that's how armies in the sub-continent do it, no?

    VN soldier salary is quite low, just around 100 USD/month.

    General's salary is around 450-500 USD/month :D

    Indian army personnel receive a lot of perks....yet we face a HUGE shortage of fresh recruits at the moment. Something needs to be done.

    And for the recipients of the Douche-Cup:

    "......Just for the information of the writer, I would like to add that he has been hired by one of the most renowned literary society of the US for delivering lectures on the world`s affairs.

    There are some very prominent names on the panel of that society like Clinton, former president of the US, and Dr Mahathir Mohamad of Malaysia.

    Clinton being the most expensive lecturer of that society charges $250,000 per lecture. Musharraf has been second highest lecturer now with $200,000 per lecture. Musharraf has been busy delivering lectures during the past one and a half years across the world....."

    My relative is a Lt and about to become a Capt, with now atleast more then 3 years service, his basic pay is between 14-15K and without hard area allowances goes to 22-24K and with hard area something close to 32-33K. Army officers when join armed forces apply for homes and on monthly basis an amount starts deducted from their salaries & its deducted through out their service and after retirement they get a house and the left over amount of the house is to be paid to get possession. And as for the plots they get, they also have to apply for it to become members of DHA or else they are not eligible to get any plot and they have to pay the development charges for the plot. And bear in mind that the majority members of DHA are civilians and they also get the plots based on its development charges and once the specified area is developed after utilizing the money submitted by the members of the housing society, the market power takes over. So civilians and army officers pay nearly the same prices of development charges, may be just a 5% or 10% discount is given to armed forces personnel, and this happens from the DHA's money which they get from their members. Nothing is taken from the defence budget.

    And rest of the perks and nearly same as majority of other armed forces give and less perks while considered to some.

    Considering vietnams currency has the same value as a PRS ita quiet low...

    @Taimi bro its a fact tht a certain general got a million or 2 $$ for each T-80UD from ukraine...etc etc.

    @indians.. im quiet surprise indian officers pay just 200rs for electricity.. we have in thousands... we paid 39000rs in electric bills...I think for each AC in the house you pay 5000rs excluding other stuff.
