Filing appeals by the Ministry of Defence against favourable disability pension verdicts: a dark chapter comes to a close

Mindless filing of en masse appeals by India’s Ministry of Defence against verdicts of Courts and Tribunals granting disability benefits to disabled soldiers was a major sore point with military veterans.

Thankfully, though reluctantly, the dark chapter seems to have come to an end with a decision having been taken not to pursue such appeals.

A detailed post on the recommendations on this issue (amongst many others) by a Committee of Experts constituted to reduce litigation, and other aspects of this latest development, is available on my blog.

The story has also been covered by The Times of India.
