SC Upholds Army Promotion Policy

  • SC praised the government’s attempt to lower the age of senior Army officers in combat and combat support cadre.
  • It upheld the 2009 Command Exit Policy that will create more than 1600 vacancies in the rank of Colonel. This will render the Indian Army more efficient and better equipped for combat situations.
  • It said the policy cannot be struck down on the ground of being perverse, unreasonable or unfair.
