ARMY PROJECTS AN INNOVATIVE 3-YEAR “ TOUR OF DUTY”

ARMY PROJECTS AN INNOVATIVE 3-YEAR “ TOUR OF DUTY” TOD FOR CIVILIANS.

AN  INTRODUCTION  ABOUT ToD :

The Indian Army has come up with a proposal to introduce a three-year stint in the force for youngsters. This proposal is a highly innovative one and will benefit not only the individual, but also the army and society at large. It will be a voluntary engagement in which Army plans to attract the best talent into force and bring the civil society closer to the force by giving them opportunity to experience military life .

The army has proposed to recruit 100 youngsters in the officers category and 1,000 as jawans in the pilot project. The move will drastically cut down the ballooning salaries and pension bill of the country’s armed forces and significantly reduce defense expenditure.

“A young man would ‘retire’ as a ToD officer or jawan at the age of around 26 years or even less, and would be a very attractive and prime recruit for the government sector and corporate. Such a young man would enjoy a huge advantage over others,” the officer said. The initial recruitment of 100 officers and 1,000 jawans would be a pilot project of sorts. But what the army also needs to do here is keep the option of offering a short service commission (SSC, of 10 years) or even permanent commission (PC) to exceptional ToD officers. And ToD officers ought to have an assured rank of Captain on completion of their three-year tenure.

Also, in case a ToD officer or jawan dies in the line of duty, his or her family and dependents should be given the same benefits, including access to army medical and CSD facilities, that families of SSC or PC officers get.

CONSEQUENCES:

The army proposal notes that the ToD scheme will find many takers since unemployment is high in the country and there has been a “resurgence of nationalism and patriotism” among the youth in India of late.

For the army, the gains are manifold. Though the commissioned strength of the army is nearly 50,000 officers, there are about 7,500 vacancies in the junior officer ranks. This acute shortage can be met by ToD officers.

What is more, the ToD proposal, once its scaled up, will ensure the existence of a ready reserve force that the country can draw on in times of emergencies. And the benefits of having a large number of disciplined, committed, professional, patriotic and hard-working young people (ex-ToD officers and jawans) in the country cannot be over- emphasized.

Defense Minister Rajnath Singh must now ensure that the MoD’s notorious civilian bureaucracy does not sit on the army’s proposals and find faults with them. It should not be yet another case of ‘army proposes, MoD disposes.

ARMY `S “TOUR OF DUTY” A  PROFITTABLE  START FOR YOUTH:

Industrialist  Anand  Mahindra has supported  that the TOD model is similar to the short service commission that allows officers to serve the armed forces for 10 to 14 years.

Anand Mahindra admits  an army proposal that seeks to allow the country`s youth to serve the military for three years under a new ‘ tour of duty ‘( ToD) model and said that the exposure would give them  an “ added advantage” in the next  workplace they choose .

The Indian Army is considering a novel proposal, the ‘ TOUR OF DUTY’. The young fit citizens of India will get an opportunity to gain operational experience in the army  both as soldiers  and officers through this voluntary three year – programme.

The scheme will benefit the Army financially ,according to reports in media .

ADVANTAGEOUS FOR CITIZENS AND THE COUNTRY:

  1. It will help to “ channelize the youth energy into positive utilization of their potential .”
  2. Rigorous military training and habits inculcated will lead to healthy citizens .
  3. The entire will be benefited from trained disciplined, confident, diligent and committed young men who have done the three years service.
  4. An “initial survey” has indicated that the corporate sector will prefer to hire such youths rather than fresh graduates.
