Turkish Paid Army Exemptions Below Expected Level, Milliyet Says

Applications to pay for exemption from Turkey’s mandatory military service were far below what was expected and may bring in less than a 10th of the income the Finance Ministry estimated, the Milliyet newspaper reported.

Some 22,500 people have applied to pay for the exemption under a law that was ratified in December, out of a pool of 460,000 potential applicants, the Istanbul-based newspaper reported. The measure will bring in at most 1.2 billion liras ($670 million) should applications continue at this pace, compared with the 13 billion liras officials expected, Milliyet said.
