RPF set to get Group A status

  • The Union Cabinet accorded Organised Group A Service status to the Railway Protection Force.
  • “Grant of status to RPF will end stagnation, improve career progression of the officers and keep up their motivational level,” an official release said.
  • Earlier in July 2019, the benefits were extended to Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), Border Security Force (BSF), Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) and Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB).

Disability pension

  • Responding to growing criticism over a Finance Ministry decision to tax the disability pension of military personnel, Minister Nirmala Sitharaman put the onus for the initiative on the Army.
  • In a message on Twitter, Ms. Sitharaman’s office put out an unsigned note calling it the “response of the Armed Forces on the issue of taxability of disability pension”, which states that “unscrupulous personnel” have found leverage in the existing system for seeking financial gains through their disabilities.
  • Disability pension is granted to personnel who are disabled in combat or during peace and their disability is attributable to service conditions, the note states.
