  6. Hi, there is a present PIL case in court regarding Taking only male Candidates for TA, hence this time its only for Ex-Army.
    Please note this is my assumption and not official statement.
    I think the were fare taking only Male in T.A as its infantry Battalion which also participates in case of Front-line combat and In India Women do not participate in field/battle.

  11. Territorial army is becoming re settlement option for all ex officers especially for short service commissioned
    Thereby diluting the part time concept of citizens army for gainfully employed civ govt employees
    Or for gainfully self employed civilians

    ReplyDelete
  12. An ex officer gets protection of pay seniority so is always ahead of civilian govt employee or gainfully self employed serving in territorial army
    Even civilian who join TA are mostly unemployed or underemployed
    PSU banks are out rightly not reliving their employee fot TA service in open violation of Goi policy
    Dual govt profession is legal vide territorial army act but no civil management recognise such unique privilage and shows displeasure on its employee who also are volunteer member of territorial army

  13. Few elite celibrity VIP civilians are coustomary member in territorial army actually are part time officer and are puerly on personal agenda with no love or care are again only attending national event or social functions to don uniform more for publicity or elevetion into their social essteem

    ReplyDelete
  14. Certain civil territorial army officers are left with no option but to remain embody in field few manage peace posting other keep cycling on emb ATC or disemb so these are the certain specific pecularity of volunteer setvice but the unemployement in nation will always remain a major factor of diluting the part time concept of territorial army

    1. Many benefits are sanctioned by GOi to civil govt employees who also are volunteer member of territorial army but no civ govt respect these GOI letters of national importance
      Even the recommendation of high level parliamentary committèe are not honoured by civil govt.
      All letters of ministry of defence on such benefits are questioned delayed and denied such is apathy in civil govt leading to decline of volunteers from majority of gainfully able employee from several govt department are again the reason for ex officers to be getting upper edge in re joining territorial army as second phase

      Delete
  15. Thank you sir, for the information provided. 'Diluting civilians' does this mean ,In future civilians will not get a chnace further to join the TA.

    1. As i mentioned only once in year for civilian twice for ex officer more preference to ex officer since civil govt dept are expressing displeasure in sparing their employees due recogination to previous military seniority for ex officer is an upper edge attracting them in massess again reducing chance of pure civilian

      In case of civ govt employee again psu banks do not spare their employee
      Vacancy for officer desire to remain on embodiment in TA on longer period etc provision do exsist
      but concept is part time no regular career so uncertanity remain even on permanet staff appointment

  28. In which category should dentist fill, either in medical or others. for filling formform.

  29. Because of shortage in Indian army even short commission officers are getting chance to serve permanent commission.So I think its useless to give chance to those who were from short commission. Those those who are leaving army is their own choice leaving few exceptional. Those civilians who couldent get into army in their young age or those who in little age feels like to do something for the nation used to apply for TA. By doing this shit civilians are getting less chance to apply. So I think shortage in army will continue and I think those who have liking for uniform should join foregion country army instead of TA.
