HC Deb 30 April 1883 vol 278 c1415

asked the Under Secretary of State for India, If he will give a Copy of the Rule sanctioning the half civil pay or any civil pay, in addition to military pay and allowances when on military duty, for officers in India?


Sir, the rule is brief and to the point, though slightly technical. It is contained in a financial notification, published in 1867, and is embodied in the Indian Pay Code as follows:— An officer on permanent civil employ, acting in a military appointment, will draw, in the Military Department, the allowances to which ho would have been entitled under military rules had his substantive appointment been an appointment in the Military Department. Under the military rules referred to an officer draws half the staff salary of his substantive appointment with that of his acting appointment.
