Then why should the military get plots or houses regardless?The thing with the US model is that in the US, over the course of let's say 30 years or so, you can get enough money to pay off the loan.
Pakistan main aap middle class zindagi guzaro, poori zindagi naukri kar kay bhi you will not be able to gather 1 crore or something. Couple that with the astronomical interest rates, and voila.
If the salary/expense ratio was equal to that of the US or other developed countries, I would have agreed with this.
The US military gets the same salary situation as the rest of the country and if for whatever reason inflation or otherwise makes housing unaffordable they will take the same hit. If land and houses are easily accessible to the military then make it the same for the middle class even besides state servants - why have this class separation ?
The military’s lower ranks are feeling the heat as well but the parachute of the land and houses remains - take that away as well. Saath marain, saath jeeyien..
Either an employee from Liaqat Hospital should also be able to get land and housing at similar discounts or they shouldn’t have to pay taxes so just one or two institutions can do it.
Unless every institutions(incl. judiciary and bureaucrats) truly behaves like the public servants they are - no need to sponsor perks
