Although the starting pay of a fresher in a company is hugely variable and negotiable, the salaries here provide the average starting pay of a fresher. This is a negative aspect for people joining MNCs as the officers in the forces have a fixed pay scale (greater than 90% of fresh interns in MNCs), and above that, they get various allowances and facilities.As you can conclude, the average salary of a newly commissioned Indian Military Officer is more than twice than that of a newly joined private employee.
Also, the salaries from the rank of Colonel and above in the military are also variable owing to the variable allowances and achievements earned by them. Even any other private company won’t allow as many allowances as the military does, except for some large MNCs. Plus, you get to have a lifetime experience of various adventures.
