The functioning of the commission would be directly monitored by the Supreme Court. The Commission would comprise of Justice Kuldip Singh, Retired SC Judge as the Chairperson and would have as its members Justice SS Sodhi, General VP Malik, Lt Gen Vijay Oberoi and one person to be nominated by the Government of India.
The Commission would independently look into the grievances of members of the defence services and the Government would have no say in the same.
The Government of India, in its affidavit, had only consented to refer the rank pay issue to the proposed Commission and did not agree to any other term of reference. The Court disregarded the affidavit alongwith the stand of the Government and also ruled that the rank pay issue would NOT be referred to the Commission since the orders had already been passed by the Supreme Court. The Court also refused to recall or modify its earlier orders on the rank pay issue and instead referred the review application preferred by the UoI to the Chief Justice for directions that it be placed before some other Bench.
A historic step indeed for the Armed Forces of India.
The salient features for the said Commission, as laid down by the Supreme Court in its order, are as follows :
(1) The Commission shall be called ‘Armed Forces Greivances Redressal Commission’
(2) The Commission shall look into all grievances forwarded to them in writing or email by serving and retired personnel.
(3) Commission shall frame schemes for rehabilitation of soldiers who are discharged at young ages.
(4) The term of the first Commission shall be two years, renewable at the option of the central govt.
(5) The Commission shall be based at CHANDIGARH. Central Govt to provide adequate infrastructure for the same.
(6) Last drawn pay and allowances of the members to be protected.
(7) The Commission shall also recommend change of rules if in its opinion the same are defective or inadequate.
(8) All civil and military authorities to extend full co-operation to the Commission.


  1. "mein ek aisa insaan huun jisnei apni jindagi aur apne pariwar ko apne desh pe samarpeet rakhkha:Mujhhe apne desh se pyara aur kuchh nahin laga aur maine ek pal bhi apne desh ke dushmanon ke uppar se nazar nahin hattai:

    Jab bhi mein chhutti aata huun sab pyare deshwashi mujhhe 'FAUZI BHAI' keh kar bulate hein aur jab wo dil ki gehraiyon se mujhhe FAUZI kehte hein tou mujhhe aissa mehsoos hota hei ki jaisse mein har hindustani ke dil mein basta huun aur ye pyar desh pe mar mittene ke liye kaaffi hei:

    Par mein duseri taraf dekhta huun tou kuchh log mujhhe istemaal tou khoob karte hein lekin jab mere welfare ka time aata hei tou mujhhe dutkaar diya jata hei aur dilli mein baithhe logon ke tiraskaar ka shikar ho jata huun. Kai baar sochta huun ki mein kis ke liye marta jeeta huun jindagi bhar? Unke liye jo mujhhe FUZI BHAI kehte hein ya unke liye jo b mujhhe apni bheek ka mohtaz samajhhte hein aur din raat mera apmaan karte hein:

    Bahut socha..bahut roya...lekin dhyaan se socha tou paya..." mein apne unn pyar karne wale karoron mata-pita, behen-bhaiyon aur chhotte chhote massumon ke liye siachin mein ya border par rehta huun...unke loye bilkul nahin jo takat ke nashe mein har roz meri aukaat ko keechad laggate hein...mein laga rahuunga...mar jauungga lekin mujhhe FAUZI BHAI kehne wale karroron hindustaniyon ko kabhi nahin sharminda hone doongaa:

  2. Whose memories are you trying to refresh, sir ?? Hum bhi jaante hain jannat ki haqiqat, lekin, dil ke khush rakhne ko Ghalib ye khayal achha hai .....
