The All India Central Paramilitary Forces Ex-servicemen Welfare Association has threatened to lead a march in the national capital on Thursday to protest against the Centre’s “deliberate discrimination” towards paramilitary forces in offering benefits vastly out of sync with those extended to army men. In a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the association has said that while paramilitary forces, such as CRPF, BSF, ITBP, CISF and SSB, have been fighing the enemy with the same vigour and suffer casualities like defence forces, they are treated like civilian employees of the central government and are denied benefits enjoyed by army men. “As a result, huge disparity (persists) with regard to pay and allowances, pension and post-retirement benefits… which is against the principle of natural justice,” the association’s secretary PS Nair said in a statement.
