Should India spend more on military (yes) or education (no)?

  • Yes, India Should Increase its Defence Budget.

    Some intellectuals who haven't a bit knowledge about Indian Defence or Indian Armed Forces may start barking that Indian is over spending on defense.
    Actually They often forget that Indian Armed Forces is one of the largest employers of India which has currently given employment to more than 1.4 Million People. In this Defence Budget which less than 2.5% of GDP and 4 times smaller than China which is our biggest enemy and most aggressive also. People think that we are spending over on our defense Budget but regarding our Armed Forces strength, we are spending nothing. Saudi Arabia is spending over on its army because they spend more than India to maintain than Armed Forces which is much more smaller than Indian Armed Forces. More than 40% Defence Budget is spent on Pay and Allowance of Employees. If you will reduce Defence budget then it will surely affect the salary of Hard Working Defence Personnel and you should note that Indian Defence Personnel do not get any other pay than Other civil Servants of India. They just get extra allowance for special service like Siachin Allowance, High Altitude Allowance, Technical Allowance etc which they really deserve. So There is no any chance of Cutting their pay and Allowance,but if you will not reduce their salary then you will reduce their budget of Modernisation and Equipment Budget which will indirectly affect their Morale and War Capabilities.
    Our country has so many problems Inside and Outside. Inside problems are Insurgency and Lwe And outside are Pakistan and China. To deal with two big powers, we must be combat efficient and Ready which means with Better training and Equipment.
    More than 60% Armoured Vehicle are outdated.
    80% Artillery Pieces are old and Infantry is using outdated helmets and Vests. We Really need to increase expenditure to modernise ARMED Forces.
    About Education budget, India is spending enough on education and central education system is quite good at par with International Education System.
    State Education Systems are not good in all States because of Corruption. We are not required to increase spending in that, that the matter of State Government. And Thing which is needed to do is to remove Corruption from State Government Education Board and make the laws strictly followed.
    Thats all,

  • Our country needs defence more because , of the following statement I've given below .

    Our country might also loose it's population through this way , moreover our India's neighbours are waiting for the moment to arrive so if we don't concentrate then we might loose any state or the whole country , like the same situation the Indians faced during colonial period . So we should concentrate on defence more .

  • Military spending should not be cut

    Indians are known for their intellectual power.We have managed to keep our educational standards par with the developed world.Still more spending is necessary in this field,but it should not be by cutting down the defence budget.As our nearest neighbours and rivals,China and Pakistan keep on increasing their defence spending, it will always remain a threat to our national security.

  • We have enough

    We dont need more defence spending we already have good enough for our usage, military spending will rise as our economy gets better focusing on economy will bear fruits for the defence industry later, also the funds that we have should be more focused towards indigenous production thats why steady impprtance towards our economy should be given

  • The pen is mighter than the sword.

    I believe education spending is more important than military spending for any country. War seems to only help solve the problem temporarily. However, a diplomatic or educational decision solves problems in the long run. No country wants to be a nation of idiots. I feel that an education is more powerful than having a gun.

  • Military takes away from education

    The over bloated Indian military budget, justified due to the supposed everlasting threat from Pakistan, is taking away vital funds and resources from education and other social services. The reality is India cannot survive as some heavily militarized state, and if it does not reinvest into education, it is destroying its own future.
