Some veterans have been circulating this old post of mine dated 15 Nov 2010 wherein it was stated that the Hon’ble Supreme Court had ordered the constitution of an Armed Forces Grievances Redressal Commission.
The directions for creation of the above mentioned commission were later withdrawn by the Supreme Court, details of which were also posted on the blog on 09 July 2011, that is, more than a year ago.
Hence, there is no order in force regarding constitution of an Armed Forces Grievances Redressal Commission and consequently there is no such body or organisation.
The circulation of the incorrect and withdrawn order has unnecessary created chaos in the environment with people writing left, right and centre about a commission which does not even exist.
I would request veterans not to spread unnecessary rumours by packaging outdated and old news as fresh. This raises expectations and leads to avoidable controversies.
