CAN ANYONE GUESS, WHEN WAS THE POLICY FRAMED ON PROMOTION OF OR/NCO/JCOS IN ARMY NAVY AIR FORCE?
6TH CPC GAVE 3 MACPS AT 8, 16 AND 24 YEARS. I.E JUST ONE PROMOTION AFTER EVERY 8 YEARS TO LOWER RANKS.
IN IAF, THE THEN CAS (IH LATIF) GAVE JANATA PROMOTIONS IN LARGE NUMBERS (WHO HAVE COMPLETED MIN QLFY SERVICE PROMOTIONS) TO ORS I.E. EVERY 2 MONTHS. THIS HAD REDUCED THE LONG WAIT OF ELIGIBLE ORS TO GET PROMOTIONS.
BUT THEN, THE KRC WAS ABOUT ALL ARMED FORCES PERSONNEL (INCLUDING ORS). BUT THE POLICY WAS ONLY FOR OFFICERS - THAT TOO - FOR INF AND ART OFFICERS.
THOSE IN POWER CAN CORNER ALL BENEFITS TO THEMSELVES, BE IT LAW MAKERS, JUDGES, IAF/IPS/ARMY OFFICERS? THIS CAN HAPPEN ONLY IN INDIA.
PLEASE GO READ THE FOLLOWING
The Supreme Court is currently hearing a case that is likely to have serious implications for the cohesion and ethos of the Indian army. The matter pertains to the policy adopted by the Army Headquarters in 2009 for promotions of officers of the rank of Colonel, Brigadier, Major General and Lieutenant General. A group of nearly 200 serving army officers have challenged this policy, which grants disproportionate vacancies to two arms - the infantry and artillery - and so stunts the career prospects of officers from others arms and services.
