Yet another slap on the face of MS Branch of Indian Army..! AFT Delhi STAYS the promotion and appointment of Lt Gens till further orders.
In a petition filed by three serving Maj Gens, the AFT slapped a cost of Rs 50000/- for each Maj Gen on the MS Branch and ordered that their promotion board to be held latest by 21 June 19 and to be produced in front of AFT Delhi on 03 July 2019. It further directed that no officer would be promoted to the rank of Lt Gen as also no such appointments of Lt Gen shall be made till further orders.
The three Maj Gens who were not promoted earlier due to the malaise, were to be considered for promotion on 13 April 19 as per the earlier order of AFT on 10 April 19 and the MS Branch didn’t comply with that order resulting into this STAY Order of today. The three Maj Gens are Maj Gen Mohanty of Infantry, Maj Gen MLM Babu of Artillery and Maj Gen Sudhakarji of Infantry.
