The PCDA (O) had issued the revised LPC based on which PCDA (P) has also issued revised Corrg PPO to all the pre 2006 Maj Gens. This results into increase in pension from 01 Jan 2006 to 30 June 2014. Most of the Maj Gens have thus also received their arrears by July 2019. All pre-2006 retired Maj Gens have thus been benefited.

EXECUTIVE AUTHORITY OF MILITARY - CONSTITUTIONAL PROVISIONS

Constitutional provisions for the executive authority of the military.
Constitutional military executive authority of the soldiers comes out of the following articles:

1. Article 18;- respects the "Title of Ranks" of Soldiers even after his death. Soldiers never retire. Title of Ranks never die.

2. Article 34:- Gives military a political executive authority to intervene by declaring martial law only to restore democracy. In India parliamentary democracy is supreme. This article makes Indian military as soldiers totally committed to democracy and "we the people".

YOUR-WILL

WHY MAKING A WILL IS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY FOR VETERANS
It is unfortunate that most of us have no understanding of the importance of making a WILL . They keep pending or simply ignore. PLEASE REMEMBER that after the death of the officer all his properties will be distributed equally among his wife and children. The wife is not the only Natural Heir of the person. It is equally valid in case of the wife as well. The Indian succession Act a copy of which is available on this site is very clear on this distribution.

  However the said Act gives the right to any person to dispose off his own assets the way he likes. For this the

WHY, OH! WHY GOD? WHY HIM?

I run a transit camp. My residence & the transit camp officer's mess are barely five feet apart. Nevertheless, I always make it a point to dress up & visit the mess for all three meals, daily. I never order food into my room. In fact I never order food into my room anywhere, even in a hotel. The reasons are many.

DEFINING SPIRITUALITY

SPIRITUALITY AND RELIGION


People often ask me this, "Why Spirituality?"

Well, the answer is quite simple. But before we attempt to answer that, we must know the meaning of the term Spirituality and Being Spiritual.

This again is very simple. What we have been doing is to confuse spirituality with religion and rituals. We think that everything that resembles religion may also be connected to Spirituality. Well, friends, Spirituality includes religion but religion does not encapsulate Spirituality. I will explain.

MoD- LITIGATION MISDIRECTED AND SADISTIC - By MAJ NAVDEEP SINGH

Defence Ministry’s approach to litigation Misdirected, Highly Adversarial and Sadistic  (Part I) By Maj Navdeep Singh
"https://barandbench.com/defence-ministry-approach-to-litigation-misdirected-highly-adversarial-and-sadistic-part-i/"
Article contributed by Col Manohar Ramtri Email - ramtri@gmail.com

This might be the oddest and longest opinion piece I have penned, and therefore it is in two parts, albeit being published simultaneously. And again, like many times before, I must forewarn that this is written to encourage discussion and introspection, not to cause commotion, disparage any entity, or to provide leverage to pessimistic sentiment.
In the late 1990s/early 2000s, as per the then existing roster of the Punjab & Haryana High Court, litigation related to service matters of the Union of India was being allotted to Justice RL Anand, a strong but humane and sensitive judge.
