It’s been a year since this blog came into existence. I’m sure readers would have enriched their knowledge by interacting with each other.

A friend who is a regular visitor wanted to know which posts have had the maximum hits, which generated the most comments and so on. I found the data interesting and do not mind sharing it with you. So here are some vital statistics :

Dear Navdeep,
accept my heartiest congrats for selfless service rendered through your blog to the Armed Forces. The Forces need persons like you to wake them up. I was taken aback as to why the C O A S through A G went in appeal to Supreme court against Hon High court in the case of Maj Gens pay and Pension less than a Brig. WHY?
Well done and Keep it up Jai Hind. I D

Dear Maj Navdeep, Heartiest congrats for the excellent work!!! i wonder if you can throw some light on the Road Mileage Allowance (RMA). as per the rules, RMA is paid on the basis of the RTO rates fixed for that particular station. the details are available at the CDA website.https://www.cdaopune.org/newsflashframe.html

the rates vary from Rs 2 per KM for sulur(fixed way back in 1987) to Rs 16 for Tenga.
i think this state of affairs is quite ridiculous.
can you intervene and throw some more light on this stupid rule, and also help the QMGs Branch out of their stupor to do something about it? Thanks

Dear Maj Naveep, Congratulations on making a wonderful and a very forceful presence in our net-lives. It has been a wonderful journey for all of us , going through your posts, going through and discussing all that you said, all that you shared, and I do hope that the contents of the post where we need to introspect is really taken up in the right spirit. That is one single thing which if addressed will really increase the level of motivation in the services today
Jai Hind and God bless you and your yeoman work

Great job indeed!!

At some stage you may like to compile extracts on 6th CPC with special reference to rank parity over the years duly supported by GOI letters as a unofficial reference for future Defence Services Pay Commissions.

Good Luck!!

This site is just not an information site but also a welcome eye opener for people like us who never knew whats happening around. Now the blog has become a daily affair with me. The most interesting part is that even without participating we can read on and on and on and on and the old postings are always refreshing as new.

My heartiest congratulations to Navdeep Sir, His team and all the members.

Jai Hind
