Doctors in Navy and Air Force are from AMC.Their promotion,selection for advanced courses,release etc are governed by AMC.Therefore wards of medical Officers of Navy and AF also should me made eligible for courses offered by AWES.

Not only wards of army and airforce medical officers, there should be some percentage of seats kept for wards for other army and navy officers also. army being a bigger organisation can run so many institutes which ofcourse navy and airforce cant. thats does not mean privilages available to children of navy and airforce personnel are less. they should not be treated as underprivilaged children. a serious thought which i am sure all must agree.

Army Welfare Education Society is is an Welfare and Education Society which is run from the Contribution made by all officers and PBOR of the Indian Army.

I am not an authority on the Subject but I believe, when Army approached the IN and IAF to Contribute to this Society in the like manner, they refused it and in turn insisted on running their own Societies.

That is why, I think, wards of IN and IAF personel, are not eligible. Only some wards of IN are eligible for AIT, Pune on reciprocal basis for some seats for the wards of Army Personnel in their Marchent Navy training School.

The sentiments and spirit expressed are valid. However,it must be appreciated that these institutes are a function of unaided and voluntary expenditure from memebrs contributions.

Wholistically, these could be run as combined institues if only the less strenth Services like IN and IAF fully contribute and do not inisit on equality of appointments and staff in these institues. Similarily, the number of vacancies per Service could be worked out on ratio basis.

Well, where there is good intention, wisdom and mutality of interest, rather than unjustified egos envolved, every thing is possible and for the good of all.

That will be a good idea provided MoD and Defence civilains do not shiffon off The CDA Canteen Profit and open another Sankriti School for the kids of IAS.
