New Delhi, April 27, 2016 | UPDATED 18:02 IST


A dossier prepared by a group of teachers of the JNU is likely to add more fuel to the fiery controversy surrounding the prestigious academic institution. The 200-page report, which has been put together by a group of 11 JNU teachers, describes the university as a "den of organised sex racket."

The 200-page document, which was prepared by a group of 11 JNU teachers in 2015, was released recently to a few journalists.

The document, which was prepared in 2015 and released only recently to a few journalists, has been submitted to the JNU administration, The Wire reports. The report has been prepared by a group of 11 teachers, who are believed to be close to the Bharatiya Janata Party and Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad, the students' wing of the RSS.
Amita Singh, professor at the Centre for Law and Governance, who heads the group of teachers, claimed that sex workers inside JNU hostel messes are a common thing.
"Over one thousand boys and girls students have been fined from Rs 2000 to Rs 5000 for consuming alcohol, for indulging in immoral activities in their hostels. At a casual glance at the gates of the hostel one can see hundreds of empty alcohol bottles. Sex workers have been openly employed in hostel messes, where they not only lure JNU girls into their organized racket but also pollute the boys," Amita Singh was quoted as saying. 


"How come big and high brand cars are moving around the hostels particularly in the night hours. Some security staff is also involved in this racket. Money, sex, drugs and alcohol are tools through which freshers are being lured into this ring," she added.
The document titled 'Jawaharlal Nehru University: The Den of Secessionism and Terrorism' also accuses a few university teachers of encouraging a "decadent culture in JNU and legitimising separatist movements in India."
"It is a matter of serious concern that some JNU academics masquerading as liberals and feminists have been engaged in nefarious and anti-national activities of maligning India publically through their statements, lectures, publications and extra-academic activities of their NGOs which receive liberal funding from foreign hostile agencies," the document states.
Assistant professor in the Special Centre for Sanskrit Studies, Hari Ram Mishra, who was part of the group which prepared the dossier, told The Wire that they want to safeguard JNU from more trouble. 
"The reason we compiled and submitted the dossier to the university administration was to prevent future disturbances in the university. JNU has become a place where communists terrorise others in the name of freedom of speech. Our point is that students should be apolitical. If you want to enter politics, there is a huge field outside. But JNU Students' Union should be limited to campus work only. But unfortunately, here communists are preferred over meritorious students," Mishra said.
The report assumes significance as a high-level committee formed to probe the recent incidents on campus found many students guilty of raising anti-national slogans.
Earier this week, based on the recommendations of the high-level committee, the JNU administration rusticated research scholars Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya, and also fined student leader Kanhaiya Kumar Rs 10,000 for their involvement in a controversial event held in campus in the memory of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru.
ABVP leader Saurabh Sharma, who had complained against Kanhaiya and his comrades for their allegedly "anti-national" activities, has also been fined Rs 10,000 for the row.

JNU teachers claim 'sex racket, use of drugs, alcohol rampant inside campus'

JNU teachers claim 'sex racket, use of drugs, alcohol rampant inside campus'
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: In what can trigger a new controversy, a group of 11 Jawaharlal Nehru Universityteachers have alleged that the varsity has become 'a den of organised sex racket'.
As per a report in The Wire, the teachers, who are supposedly inclined to the BJP and RSS ideology, have prepared a 200-page document compiled last year and submitted to the university administration, stating the university has become 'a den of organised sex racket'.
“Over one thousand boys and girls (sic) students have been fined from Rs 2000/- to Rs 5000/- for consuming alcohol, for indulging in immoral activities in their hostels. On a casual glance at the gates of the hostel one can see hundreds of empty alcohol bottles. Sex workers have been openly employed in hostel messes, where they not only lure JNU girls into their organized racket but also pollute the boys. How come big and high brand cars are moving around the hostels particularly in the night hours. Some security staff is (sic) also involved in this racket. Freshers are particularly inducted in this ring of vice by luring through money, sex, drugs and alcohol, so that they become tied up with the cause of foreign agencies,” the report quoted the text of the dossier.
The dossier, titled 'Jawaharlal Nehru University: The Den of Secessionism and Terrorism' further accuses some teachers of encouraging such practices.
The group of the teachers who have made this claim is led by Amita Singh, professor at the Centre for Law and Governance. “I plan to tell the JNU teachers’ association to propose a complete ban on alcohol and motorcycles on campus. We need to strictly adhere to the JNU manual. In the manual, girls are not permitted to enter boys’ hostels. But no one follows it here. In a hostel raid, occasionally conducted by wardens, at least 40-50 boys are always fined for sheltering outsiders. In the same raids, so many girls are found to be present in the hostel rooms meant only for boys. Who knows where these girls are from? That is why I proposed to the present vice-chancellor to install CCTV cameras in hostels. I told him that unless you sanitise the hostels, the university cannot be run properly,” Hari Ram Mishra, assistant professor in the Special Centre for Sanskrit Studies and a part of this group was quoted as saying by The Wire.
Meanwhile, the students and other teaches have rebuffed the allegations, calling them completely baseless and a part of the Hindutva propaganda against JNU’s liberal culture.

Major Goswami

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 petitionsThe 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.

 Dated: 26 April 2016

Dear Friends,
1.     Our Relay Hunger Strike is going on smoothly and strongly at Jantar Mantar.  Today is 317th day.  Mrs Sudesh Goyet has been regularly on Relay Hunger Strike for 244th day.  We salute her grit determination and dedication to the cause. Ex-Servicemen throughout the length and breadth of the Country have whole heartedly supported the cause by their presence and donations. 14 brave ESM had taken fast unto death and continued till 25 days to convey unhappiness of ESM countrywide with neglect of ESM by Government and denial of OROP to ESM.(preferably write their names).   Volunteers who are administrating Relay Hunger Strike  at Jantar Mantar, are doing an excellent job and their contribution will be remembered whenever the History of  OROP  will be written. Special mention will be made of the contribution of ESM of Gurdaspur who also completed RHS for 306 days alongwith JM of Delhi. Jathas from neighbouring states and NCR are holding the Relay Hunger Strike with Honour, Dignity and Respect.  The supporters from across the country visit Jantar Mantar to showcase their solidarity to the cause of Soldiers and for the Profession of Arms.  “Izzat-O-Insaf” slogan rents the air at Jantar Mantar many times during the day.
2.     ESM Agitation per se which started on 14 June 2015 at Jantar Mantar and at many locations in the Country will continue, will be strengthened by  the day till our objective of Implementation  of Actual  OROP is met.  Unity of objectives, the cardinal principle will be adopted and adhered to.  The actions and   activities may however be strategized, keeping in view the response from the Govt and the existing environments.
3.     We have already sent our representation to address the anomalies arising in the implementation of OROP to Justice Reddy Committee on 25 Mar 2016 through the Hon’ble RM.  This is in response to the discussion held by RM with the ESM representatives on 14 Mar 2016.  Justice Reddy Committee is scheduled to submit its recommendations by 15 June 2016.  As already informed to you all, we have brought out the following anomalies in the Implementation of OROP:-
·        Equalization of Pensions as per the original approved definition be carried out every year instead of 5 years as per the Govt Notification dated 07 Nov 2015.
·        Pensions are to be fixed at maximum of the Rank and year of service in the year instead of Average of Max and Min.
·        Since the OROP is being implemented with effect from 01 Jul 2014, the base year should be 2014-2015 instead of Average of 2013.
·        OROP should be implemented with effect from 01 Apr 2014 as mentioned in the Executive Order of the Govt dated 26 Feb 2014 instead of 01 Jul 2014.
·        There are serious inaccuracies in the construction of Tables issued on 03.02.2016 for the fixation of pensioners. The details of inaccuracies have been brought to the Notice of Service HQs with request to forward the same to Justice Reddy Committee.  We understand from the Service HQs that these inaccuracies have been brought to the notice of MoD.
·        Approved definition of OROP has been given out in the Govt.  Executive Order dated 26 Feb 2014. But it has been changed while transmitting to Reddy Committee, which totally destroys the soul of the OROP.  This approved definition has been confirmed by Minister of State for Defence Rao Inderjit Singh in the Parliament on 02 Dec 2014 and is in line which the Recommendations of Koshyari Committee.  The salient point of the Govt Executive Orders and the approved definition of OROP vide Govt of India In of Def  Letter No. 12 (01)/2014/D(Pen/Pol) dated 26 Feb 2014 are as under :-
(i)     Finance Minister in his Interim Budget Speech on 17th February 2014 announced that the Government has accepted the principle of One Rank One Pension for the defence forces.  In pursuance of this Budget announcement and the decision taken in the meeting chaired by Hon’ble  Raksha Mantri on 26.02.2014, It has been decided to implement the  principle  of One Rank One Pension for all ranks  of defence forces prospectively from the financial year 2014-15.

(ii)   It  was noted that “One Rank One Pension (OROP) implies that uniform pension be paid  to the Armed Forces personnel retiring in the same rank  with the same length of service irrespective of their date of retirement and any future enhancement in the rates of pension to be automatically passed on to the past pensioners.  This implies bridging the gap between the rate of pension of the current pensioners and the past pensioners and also future enhancements in the rate of pension to be automatically passed on to the past pensioners”
4.     However, the Govt through its Notification dated 07 Nov 2015, has changed the above approved definition which totally destroys the soul of the OROP.  We have already written to RM for the restoration of original definition Justice Reddy has been requested to recommend the restoration of the original approved definition.  The amended definition in fact kills the very concept of OROP which is to be applicable in perpetuity.
5.     We will shortly be impleading in the ongoing OROP case of Maj Gen SPS Vains Vs others and Union of India in the SC for all ranks. Senior Advocate Shri Ram Jeth Malani has very kindly consented to fight our case of implementation of Actual OROP for all ranks pro-bono.   
6.     The  Govt  through its, Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Ms. Pinky Anand, on 16 Feb 2015 had stated that the Govt has sanctioned the implementation of OROP for which the  Supreme Court of India  gave three months time for its Implementation.  Though,  the Govt has implemented the OROP through its Notification dated 07 Nov 2015 and Tables issued vide letter No 12(1)/2014/D(Pen/Policy)-Part –II dated 03.02.2016, it is a diluted OROP and is NOT RPT NOT ACTUAL OROP.  We will continue our struggle till Actual OROP is granted.
7.     We are also filing the following cases in AFT RK Puram New Delhi:-
        (a)    Grant of pension equal to regular ranks for Hony  ranks awarded to ESM on retirement or after retirement.
        (b)    Broad banding of disability pension.
        (c)    Arrears upto 2006 for all JCOs/OR.
        (d)    Reservist Pension should be increased.
8.     The Print and Electronic Media has blacked out any new about our ongoing OROP Agitation.  We have already brought to the Notice of Information Minister Mr. Jaitley and requested him to issue suitable directions to ensure free and fair media coverage of our Activities of our Movement.  All members of Defence Fraternity and our supporters are requested to chip in and assist in coverage of News regarding our activities through Print, Electronic and Social Media platforms.  Fauji kids are doing good job and we request more of the like to join in
9.     There are serious and large numbers of Anomalies in the recommendations of 7the CPC.  If the recommendations are approved in the present form, it will furthers degrade and downgrade the profession of Defence Forces.  The Review Committee constituted by the Govt does not have any member from the Defence Forces.  Even the BSF has got their member included. The three chiefs have jointly represented to the Govt and brought out 36 Anomalies in the Recommendations of 7th CPC.  We the Ex-Servicemen fully support the views of our three Services Chiefs and would struggle to get our due Justice.  The  degradation,  down gradation,  ill-treatment and mistreatment of Military in  status, pay pension  and allowances have to  stop  and the status of Defence Forces in all respects as it existed on 26 Jan 1950 needs to be restored at the earliest.  We will jointly and unitedly struggle to get Izzat and Insaf for the solders.  We request all members of the Sainik Samaj to strongly represent to the Govt about the injustices being heaped on the Soldiers at all forums to ensure Civil Military relations are restored to the required and desired levels.  Dignity & Respect of the Soldiers must be ensured by the Govt and the Nation. 
10.    We would request our Hon’ble PM & RM and the six MPs from the Defence Fraternity to assist in Restoring the Izzat of the Soldiers”.  “Do we respect our Soldiers”? Discussion needs to be taken to every nook and corner of the country on all forums to grant the due priority to the “Profession of Arms” and the “Security of the Nation.”  Our representatives in the Parliament must debate on the issue and restore the status of Armed Forces in all respects to the 26 Jan 1950 level.
11. We strongly feel that the Political Parties and the Govts of the day did not pay any attention to the Defence Forces since they thought that we, both serving and retired are spread across the Country and do not use our Vote Power.  This thought had a lot to do with the neglect of defence personnel by the Political Parties.
12. We now, understand power of Vote and have carried out study and research across the country in various states.  The study reveals that we have direct influence of over 6 crores Votes and our capability of opinion making is so large in villages and Tehsils that we could influence another 4 crores indirectly. This large no of voting strength can affect the election outcome of at-least 150 Parliamentary Constituencies and over 450 State Assembly Constituencies  across the country.
13. Friends, we propose to utilize this potential Force of “Power of Vote”.  We should, based on the interests of Sainik Samaj, use this “Power of Vote”.  Each vote should be cast with care and thought. We intend to take ESM to Parliament and state assemblies to raise the voice of ESM family. We intend to now directly participate in law making rather than begging existing MPs to write laws governing ESM and armed forces.  Our OROP Protest Movement since 14th June 2015 has taught us many lessons.  The best outcome of the Movement has been the forging of “Unity of Objections” amongst the Sainik Samaj.   It was this Unity, demonstrated on ground at Jantar Mantar and at many location across the country which has been the  major  factor in the implementation of OROP though it is in a Diluted form.
14.  We have decided to use this “Power of Votes” in all Election in the States and Centre.  We request all members of the Sainik Samaj to understand and use this “Power of Votes” for the interest and benefit of Sainik Samaj in the coming State elections.
15.  We will soon be focusing on this important factor to restore our status in all respects. ESM in various states who have the interest should come forward and fight elections from Panchyat to Parliament.
16.  We, however wish to clarify that no member from Governing Body of IESM will fight any Election as candidate.  In case any member wishes to do so, he / she will resign before contesting the election.
17.  As already announced, we will actively take part, in elections and unitedly use the “Power of Votes” in all coming State Elections with the sole aim of sending 40 to 50 ESM as Member Parliament and 30 to 40 ESM in each state assemblies to represent ESM family.     
18.    The false case lodged against the office bearers of IESM will be fought to its logical conclusions.  We assure the Sainik Samaj once again that every paisa of the IESM Funds has been spent on the activities of the IESM, accounted for, Audit by Independent CA carried out and the withdrawal and expenses duly ratified by the General Body. Our accounts are open to all ESM to come and check them randomly.
All members of the retired Defence Fraternity, specially our senior officers of One Star and above” and our supporters are requested to visit Jantar Mantar daily to showcase their solidarity to the cause of Soldiers.
“Hands-Heads and shoulders…………Together”
With regards,                                   
Yours Sincerely,

Chandigarh, April 18

The Armed Forces Tribunal, Chandigarh Bench, has issued notice to the Ministry of Defence on a petition challenging the notification issued by the Ministry regarding the one rank one pension (OROP) on February 3, 2016.
The petitioners contend that para 4.1 of the notification deprives reservist pensioners /DSC Pensioners and those who are in receipt of two pension and many other categories from the benefits of one rank, one pension from July 1, 2014, which is illegal, discriminatory, arbitrary, resulting in violation of the Articles 14 and 16 of the Constitution and infringement to the Right to Property .
The Bench of the AFT consisting of Justice Parkash Krishna and Lt Gen DS Sidhu ( Retd) issued notice for July 4, 2016, to the Ministry of Defence.
The petitions were filed by the chairman of the All-India Ex-servicemen Welfare Association, Bhim Sen Sehgal, on behalf of the petitioners Baldev Singh, Raghuvir Singh, Bhuri Singh, Raj Mal, Chand Kishore Sharma and many others reservist pensioners, DSC pensioners, as well as those drawing two pensions but deprived of the one rank one pension from July7, 2014.
The association has demanded setting aside of the portion of the notification and direction to the authorities for the grant of OROP to all categories of personnel, including the reservist pensioners, DSC pensioners and those drawing two pensions and the pensions of all these categories be revised from July 1, 2009, September 24, 2012 and then from July 1, 2014, onwards and all arrears be paid to them with interest and exemplary damages.
Sehgal, who appeared for the (PBORs) submitted before the Bench that these reservist pensioners of the Indian Army had served during emergencies of the Indo-China Aggression of 1962, Indo-Pak War of 1965 and 1971 and on completion of their regular and reserve service of 15 years were granted the reservist pension of Rs 40 pm in 1972 which was revised to Rs. 375 pm from January 1,1986, then Rs1,275 pm from January 1,1996 and then Rs 3,500 pm w.e.f January 1, 2006, but thereafter there was no increase in their pension from July, 2009, September 24, 2012, and then from July 1, 2014 (on OROP). The association had already submitted representation to the authorities concerned but nothing has been done till date, hence the association moves the Armed Forces Tribunal for the relief to these unfortunate soldiers who are in advance stage of their life.

वन रैंक वन पेंशन का लाभ नहीं मिला, ट्रिब्यूनल में दी चुनौती

रक्षा मंत्रालय की वन रैंक वन पेंशन योजना को चंडीगढ़ आर्म्ड फोर्स ट्रिब्यूनल (एएफटी) में चुनौती दी गई है। सोमवार को वन रैंक वन पेंशन (ओआरओपी) के खिलाफ कुल आठ याचिकाएं दायर हुईं। ट्रिब्यूनल के जस्टिस प्रकाश कृष्णा व लेफ्टिनेंट जनरल डीएस सिद्धू की बेंच ने रक्षा मंत्रालय को नोटिस जारी कर जवाब मांगा है।

इस मामले की सुनवाई अब चार जुलाई को होगी। केंद्र सरकार की ओर से नोटिफिकेशन जारी होने के बाद यह पहली बार है, जब किसी ट्रिब्यूनल में वन रैंक वन पेंशन को चुनौती दी गई हो।

एएफटी में ओआरओपी को चुनौती देने वाले आल इंडिया एक्स सर्विसमैन वेलफेयर एसोसिएशन के चेयरमैन भीमसेन सहगल ने बताया कि नोटिफिकेशन के पैरा नंबर 4.1 में उल्लेख है कि इस योजना का लाभ रिजर्व फोर्स के सिपाहियों को नहीं मिलेगा। उन्हें जो भी पेंशन मिल रही है, उसमें कोई इजाफा नहीं होगा।

उन्होंने बताया यह फैसला अन्यायपूर्ण है। यह उन सिपाहियों के साथ धोखा है, जो साल 1962, 1965 और 1971 के युद्ध में देश के साथ खड़े हुए और दुश्मनों को मुंह तोड़ जवाब दिया। रेग्युलर और रिजर्व सर्विस पूरी होने के बाद उन्हें पेंशन मिलने लगी। उन्हें अभी इतनी कम पेंशन मिल रही है, जिससे घर का खर्चा चलाना उनके लिए मुश्किल हो गया है।

सिर्फ 3500 रुपये मिल रही पेंशन
सहगल के मुताबिक फौज में पहले आठ साल रेग्युलर जॉब करनी पड़ती थी। उसके बाद उन्हें रिजर्व फोर्स में सात साल के लिए रखा जाता था। रिजर्व फोर्स में जाने के दौरान उन्हें हर महीने सिर्फ 20 रुपये मिलते थे। हालांकि दो महीने के लिए उन्हें ट्रेनिंग में भेजा जाता था, जिसमें उन्हें मेहनताना मिलता था। पूरे उत्तर भारत में इस कैटेगरी के गिनती के ही सिपाही बचे हैं। 1972 में उनकी पेंशन 40 रुपये थी। 1986 में रिवाइज कर 375 रुपये कर दी गई। 1996 में 1275 और फिर 2006 में 3500 रुपये, लेकिन इसके बाद कोई इजाफा नहीं किया गया, जबकि 2009, 2012 और 2014 में बाकियों की पेंशन में बढ़ोतरी हुई, लेकिन इनका एक भी रुपया नहीं बढ़ा।

कई बार पत्र लिखा, लेकिन नहीं हुई सुनवाई
एसोसिएशन ने इस बारे में संबंधित अथॉरिटीज को कई बार पत्र लिखा, लेकिन कोई सुनवाई नहीं हुई। आखिर में उन्हें ट्रिब्यूनल में जाना पड़ा। उन्होंने बताया कि वन रैंक वन पेंशन के मुताबिक उन्हें अब 6665 रुपये पेंशन मिलनी चाहिए, लेकिन उन्हें सिर्फ 3500 रुपये में ही गुजारा करना पड़ रहा है। इन पेंशनरों की उम्र 80-90 साल होगी। उम्र के इस पड़ाव में उन्हें काफी दिक्कतें झेलनी पड़ रही हैं। इतनी कम राशि में उन्हें घर चलाना मुश्किल हो रहा है। याचिका दायर करने वालों में बलदेव सिंह, रघुवीर सिंह, भूरी सिंह, राज मल व चंदकिशोर सहित कई लोग शामिल हैं।

Dear all,

Strange are the policies of Govt., be it Central or State.

An anti-social activist (docoit or naxalite) is offered about 10 lakhs to shun violence and join mainstream society. After he kills hordes of people, destroys public and private properties and surrenders.  This is done, due to medical and fitness problems, with an eye on what Govt offers. What is more they are given huge publicity, free of cost. e.g. Bandit queen becoming an MP and a Ph D scholar becoming a familiar face after shouting anti-national slogans. 

People die in accidents, (bus/rail/air) and natural calamities, the Govts give cash compensations.

Employee die in election duties, huge compensation is paid.

A DP Cost dies in rioting, 1 crore is released by the CM. Offers Govt job to an anti-social family member.

A terrorist is killed, they become martyrs, discussions go on for years together on TV channels making them familiar faces. If he or she is from a particular community, majority of that community leaders' views are elicited and propogated.

Almost all the political class reach out to the spot and score their political points over the opponents.

But no TV Channel has time to report deaths of soldiers die in course of their dangerous duties not any Govt release adequate compensation. Same is the scenario of the farmer's deaths.

A Civil employee is disabled (on line of duty), he is continued in the job till he attains the age of superannuation, but not the jawan. The Govt throws him out  with a measly DP D element when he is disabled.




The soldier pays premium for his life and not the Govt. So he offers his life for free to the nation.

While a host of people, politicians, bureaucrats, businessmen, Babas of sorts, tricksters, cheats and fraudsters, are bleeding the Nation to death, the first two are hell bent in bleeding the Nation's defenders to death, while the rest, too busy in admiring their own pyrotechnics, indifferently watch the sordid drama unfold day-in & day-out.

The never heard before shameless justification, being doled out of late, by not just those who are causing it, but even by some of us, trying to curry favour with the powers that be is, "No body asked them to be soldiers, They chose to be one of their own volition".

Shame, shame and more shame to these betrayers of the Defenders of the Nation.

Defenders of a Nation, the world over, not just in dictatorships, are compensated abundantly, not only with pelf but with an incessant shower of honour, dignity and most of all - Love.

One example of the free-bee the soldier gives to the Nation:

The market rate of premium for 'Normal Life Insurance' (without covering war and other risks of war and terror ops) cover of INR 1 crore is an ANNUAL premium of Rs 4000.  

What the soldier is made to pay for volunteering to be one :

Army Group Insurance Scheme charges monthly insurance premiumfor a sum assured of 50 lakhs and 25 lakhs for Officers & JCOs respectively as follows : -

(a)    Officers         -    Rs 5000 

(b)    JCOs              -    Rs 2500 

(Deducted from their salaries.)

The premium paid by soldiers is about 220% higher than normal due to the additional war and terror risks. Govt does not subsidize  a penny, because the soldier chose to be one on their own volition, so must not only risk their lives for the Country as part of their self-chosen jobs, but also pay in cash for doing so. Is that clear my dear Dr Watson?

The salaries of the officers who are posted to HQ AGIF to manage these activities are again paid from corpus raised from the salaries and not by the Govt. (The money is refunded to CDAs by AGIF). 

In democracies around the world, every soldier is insured regardless of rank for a monthly premium of 27 dollars for a huge sum assured ($ 4 lakh for US soldiers) at govt expense.
