    Indian armed forces salaries aren't lucrative at all. But they do offer a very unique and distinct lifestyle that you just can't get anywhere else.

    I guess its the same in Pakistan.

    Not really. Higher salary can also mean they have a harder time, or as a incentive to put up with mistreatment. The salary does not tell how the soldiers are treated in the military, it only tells the economic condition of the country or how much a country is willing to spend on defence

    Furthermore, different armies give different incentives to their soldiers after they completed their service. For example, my brother-in-law served the army for 18 years, when he retired he was given a plot of land and was put in piority list when he went to find a government job

    Not really in Pakistan I heard if you are an officer on retirement you are given a plot of land in prime location at dirt cheap price. You have the option of selling it at market rate netting you a high profit. Also after retirement you will guaranteed jobs in Army run enterprises.

    Thats called 'combat pay' or 'hazard pay' or something like that and its given to soldiers serving in sensitive areas for eg. in India Kashmir.

    I really meant mistreatment, not 'combat pay'. Some BD jawans get it, cause they are used as house maids by the higher ups. You may call it ragging, bd army style

    I saw on Pakistani channel, even a junior level officers in PA gets 8 servants to serve him.

    In India IA soldiers too getting high salary because of economic boom causing high paid jobs in Private Sector and if Indian government would not have increased their salary, army may face lack of recruits in future as our youth would prefer private jobs mostly.

    An Indian Army officer gets around 35000-40000 as starting pay depending on specialty. There are variable pay factors like technical pay, high altitude pay, foreign posting etc etc.

    During NDA training, no one gets anything except for little pocket money. It is only in the last year, in IMA that they get Rs 21000 monthly as stipend. On commission, they get around 24000 as basic pay, and then DA is added to it. Add to that housing allowance, travel allowance, technical pay(if one is a BTech - Rs 5000 per month), high altitude allowance(Rs 6000 per month), Rank Pay(depends on rank), Foreign posting pay(10,000 - 50,000 per month depending on location), etc etc.

    Also add to that a highly subsidized Insurance of Rs. 25,00,000 + an account in CDA that pays compound interest(good luck finding something like this anywhere outside). Travel and moving charges are paid by Army for every posting.

    So the perks are good.
