ARMY to be blamed for such apathy of SOLIDER’s
DISPARITY amongst INDIAN ARMY for the status of EX SERVICEMAN
Denial of EXSERVICEMAN status to Honorably RETIRED (with gratuity ) officers of Territorial army is an open affront to their Reckon able embodied service rendered for national defense,& is wholly arbitrary, discriminatory and violation of Article 14 of the Constitution.– if Two categories of person from same class different treatment meted out to them would be treated as discriminatory & offend equality without any ground to invalidate or strike down such classification
The Member of the Territorial Army being integral part of INDIAN ARMY are subject to INDIAN ARMY ACT 1950 governed by – DEFENSE SERVICE REGULATION, Regulations for the ARMY, PENSION REGULATIONS 1961
The Army is composed of those who have undertaken definite liability for military service, viz, combatant troops, administrative service/departments and enrolled non-combatants-The Army Comprises-.
The Regular Army;
The Army Reserve
The Territorial Army
The Territorial Army is part of the regular Indian Army. The present role of the Territorial Army is to relieve the Regular Army from static duties and assist civil administration in dealing with natural calamities and maintenance of essential services in situations where like of the communities is affected or the security of the country is threatened, and to provide units for the Regular Army as and when required.
History, composition, administration, organization and Operational role of territorial army clearly depicts that T.A . is an integral part of the Armed Forces and the Members of TA legitimately are the members of the Armed Forces within the meaning of Article 33
Services of Territorial army personnel in comparison to other Indian armed FORCES personnel is neither inferior nor services required by the Indian Armed Forces are superior to Territorial army.
Territorial army officers are part of the regular force of Indian armed forces and are eligible for all entitlements, which commensurate with the rank as equal to commissioned officers of Indian Army . Authorized to all entitlements and benefits, which a regular officer is entitled under the Army Act, 1950 and rules framed there under.
Embodiment of a Territorial Army personal equates him for all purposes with regular army personnel and there is no distinction in any legal aspect with regard to Army Act/Rules. Therefore, there is no doubt that the Territorial Army personnel constitute part of the regular Army and are subject to all the legal provisions contained in the Army Act/Rules
Yet are not treated as “EXSERVICEMAN” alike NON pensioner Short Service Commissioned Officers .-who are granted status of Ex-servicemen, on their honorable discharge with Gratuity after 05 year commissioned service.
Exclusion from the definition of Ex-Serviceman for TA officers who had been honorably Released\Discharged\Retired with Gratuity alike Non pensioner SSCO & ECO is highly illegal and against the directive of. Govt of India ministry of labor & EMPLOYMENT guidelines of Director general Employment & training.
Ironically APS & GREF DSC Personnel are Now treated as Ex-servicemen. Vide revised definition. The Army Postal Service personnel, most of them are non COMBATANTS, on deputations from P&T Department STILL are treated as Ex-servicemen wide Department of Personnel and Training Letter No. 36034/25/88 – Estt. (SCT) Dated 28/2/1989
Sensibly Officers Disgraced\cashiered\ court marshaled & discharged on other disciplinary grounds from Indian Armed forces are denied of Ex-Service men status and ensuing benefits. Consequently this discrimination is apathetic condition, which has ruined the praiseworthy status & self-esteem of honorable retired Territorial Army officers in INDIAN society.
Thereby unnecessarily forced to suffer in silence for no reasons\fault on their part An feeble condition after serving respectably in the defense of nation, even so their reckon able service not renowned to earn the noble status of Ex-serviceman.
