New pay system for Army

With implementation of the new system, salaries of the jawans will directly be credited online into their respective bank accounts anywhere in the country and their families will also be able to withdraw money with ATM and debit cards.

This step has been taken by the Defence Accounts Department to empower the soldiers and to do away with the time-consuming method of money order through which they send money to their families.

The Controller General of Defence Accounts shifted to the new system at a function in the premises of Pay Accounts Office (ORs) ACR and MIR at Ahmednagar last week. The office is under Principal Controller of Defence Accounts, Southern Command.This system is being implemented for all jawans throughout the country in a phased manner.

Principal Controller of Defence Accounts, Southern Command S S Sandhu said his Eight Pay and Accounts Offices are disbursing salary to a third of Indian Army and by November, all remaining PAOs will also be switched over to Monthly Payment System.
