Next Thursday, at the Governing Council to be held under the chairmanship of the head of government, Saâd Eddine El Othmani, the second draft decree determining the wages and benefits of conscripts and recalled in the military service, will be examined.
The Executive should therefore, in an official way, approve the texts of the new decree which will be presented to it by the Minister Delegate for Administration and National Defense, Abdellatif Loudiyi, fixing the salaries of the persons subject to the obligation of the military service. The conscripts will be categorized as officers and troopers.
According to sources, their salary will vary between 1050 dirhams (soldiers) and 2100 dirhams (officers). In addition, recruits who join the southern provinces will be granted an additional 300 dirhams per month. Medical coverage and travel allowances on the same basis as the FAR recruits are included in the deal. In case of disability during the training period for military service, a pension will be paid to them.
Beni-Mellal, El Hajeb and Nouaceur will be the first centers to welcome the conscripts. All conscripts will receive a free food and will be dressed and housed free of charge in the barracks and military centers to which they will be assigned.
