Ris Maj/Clk Bikram Singh Vs. Uoi and Others

Court : Armed forces Tribunal AFT Principal Bench New Delhi

The petitioner seeks grant of Honorary rank after his retirement from service. His contention is that the respondents have not adhered to the policy issued on 06.04.2004 whereby the service rendered by the petitioner in Lebanon was declared as active field service for which weightage was required to be given. It is further contended that ground of non consideration of this service rendered by the petitioner in Lebanon has affected his right for conferring Honorary rank on him.

Even if the weightage is given to the petitioner for the said service, he does not make the grade. We have heard the learned counsel f...
