The facts reported in this news item if true,elevates the MoD of India to a unique reputation of being the only government in a democracy that fights legal battles against her own soldiers and veterans........
. ....Incredible India.
With AFT decisions not being implemented, defence personnel forced to file contempt petitions. The report said that most of the decisions are not implemented on the flimsy pretext of being against ‘government policy’.
Data accessed by The Indian Express shows, that in cases pertaining to Army, out of a total of 10,645 cases pending in various benches of AFT as on July 1, 2015, as many as 4790 were execution applications.
Delay in implementation of the orders of the Armed Forces Tribunal (AFT) benches across the country is resulting in an increasing number of serving and retired defence services personnel and their family members filing contempt petitions asking for implementation of the earlier orders of AFT.
Data accessed by The Indian Express shows, that in cases pertaining to Army, out of a total of 10,645 cases pending in various benches of AFT as on July 1, 2015, as many as 4790 were execution applications. Out of this data, in case of Chandigarh bench, out of a total of 7,117 pending cases, 4390 are execution/contempt applications which means 61.68 per cent of total pending cases are execution/contempt applications alone.
A committee formed by the Ministry of Defence (MoD) has also commented adversely on the tendency on part of government departments under the MoD not to implement the decisions till a contempt petition is filed. The committee, whose report was de-classified recently, observed that non-implementation of orders in time leads to not only frustration amongst litigants and a bad name to the organisation but also in massive outgo of taxpayers’ money and burden on the exchequer by way of costs, interests and avoidable payments to Government Counsel for multiple dates of hearings.
