Navy Chief In Kochi Urges Naval To Ensure Safe Coasts And Secure Seas


Sunil Lanba said Navy would always remain ready to protect, promote and preserve national interests in the maritime domain.



Mr Lanba congratulated the senior leadership and officers of the Navy on the high level of commitment.


Kochi: 

Conduct of the mega naval exercise TROPEX 19, the operational readiness of the Indian Navy, a realistic audit of its deployment philosophy and fighting capability was undertaken at a review on Monday by its top officials.


Lessons learnt from the exercise would provide the Navy accurate assessments to fine tune combat deployment, force structuring requirements, operational logistics as also material and training imperatives, a release said.

The Chief of Naval Staff, Admiral Sunil Lanba, headed the review, in which Commanders-in-Chief of all the three naval Commands, along with a number of senior operational commanders and representatives from the Army, Air Force and Indian Coast Guard participated in the discussions held at the Naval Base, a Defence release said.

Mr Lanba congratulated the senior leadership and officers of the Navy on the high level of professionalism and commitment displayed during the exercise. He urged them to maintain the high tempo of operations and keep a sharp vigil, including stringent security measures to ensure safer coasts and secure seas, the release said.

He said the Navy would always remain ready to protect, promote and preserve national interests in the maritime domain.

Aircraft carrier INS Vikramaditya, nuclear submarine Chakra, 60 ships and nearly 80 aircraft were put on operational deployment by the Indian Navy in the North Arabian sea in the exercise.

The exercise was conducted from January 7 and graduated smoothly into providing the Navy a high operational readiness posture post the Pulwama attack on February 14.


The exercise also included a Tri-services Amphibious Exercise that saw the participation of Army and Air Force personnel and assets, the release said.

Overall, the exercise validated the Navys readiness and capability to meet various mandated roles, in support of national objectives, it added.

Pulwama aftermath: Indian Navy deployed nuclear submarines, aircraft carrier amid heightened tensions with Pakistan

, by KS Ramaswamy

New Delhi: In a major step, the Indian Navy on Sunday said it had deployed its frontline warships, including nuclear submarines and aircraft carrier INS Vikramaditya, near the Pakistan waters in the Arabian Sea, which had forced the Pakistan Navy to remain close to its coastline during India-Pakistan tensions.


Navy sources said nuclear submarine INS Chakra was deployed with the Carrier Battle Group of INS Vikramaditya to provide protection to it and also be ready to thwart any offensive action.

In a statement issued by the Navy on the "largest war games" codenamed TROPEX, the maritime force said its Chief Admiral Sunil Lanba will get a debrief about the exercise.

"The exercise had commenced 7 January and was planned to be terminated by 10 March. However, the JEM-sponsored terrorist attack on the CRPF convoy in Pulwama on 14 February led to the rapid redeployment of the Indian Navy for Operations in North Arabian Sea," it said.

"The major combat units of the Indian Navy, including the Carrier Battle Group with INS Vikramaditya, nuclear submarines and scores of other ships, submarines and aircraft, swiftly transited from exercise to operational deployment mode as tensions between India and Pakistan escalated," the statement said.

It said the "overwhelming superiority of Indian Navy in all three dimensions forced the Pakistan Navy to remain deployed close to the Makran coast and not venture out in the open ocean".

The navy said "a clear and resolute message regarding the operational posture of the Indian Navy to prevent, deter and defeat any misadventure by Pakistan in the maritime domain was also issued during the tri-services press conference conducted on 28 February."

This is probably the first time that the Navy deployed nuclear submarines — the indigenous INS Arihant and INS Chakra — in an operational role.

About 60 ships of the Indian Navy, 12 ships of the Indian Coast Guard and 60 aircraft were part of TROPEX 19.

"Availability of such a large number of combat ready assets in the theatre of operations for TROPEX allowed the Indian Navy to expeditiously respond to the developing situation in synergy with the other three services,” the navy said.

BCCI set to contribute Rs 20 crore for welfare of Armed Forces

The BCCI will donate Rs 20 crore for the welfare of armed forces in the wake of the Pulwama terror attack, where at least 40 CRPF personnel were killed.

It has been learnt that BCCI brass plans to invite senior dignitaries from the Indian armed forces (Army, Air force and Navy) on the day of the IPL opener in Chennai between Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore on March 23.

"Yes, the CoA has sanctioned Rs 20 crore which will be contributed towards the Army Welfare Fund. On the opening day with both Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Virat Kohli being present, the first portion of the said amount will be handed over to one of the dignitaries," a senior BCCI official privy to the development said.

The CoA had decided against having any glittering opening ceremony for the cash-rich event and instead contribute the entire budget for the welfare of armed forces.

"The budget of IPL opening ceremony was around Rs 15 crore during the last edition. It was a decision that BCCI will raise it to Rs 20 crore. The amount will be contributed towards Army Welfare Fund as well as National Defence Fund," he added.

It was acting president CK Khanna, who had initially proposed to the CoA that a contribution of Rs 5 crore be made in this regard.

"I am not aware of the amount that CoA has earmarked for donation. If it is Rs 20 crore, then it is a great news. This is the least we could do for our soldiers," Khanna said.

During the Australia ODI series, the Indian team wore camouflaged army caps as a mark of respect for the armed forces, a gesture that drew mixed reactions from the fans.

Army chief warns Pakistan terror groups of another military action if need arise

Isuing a strong warning to cross border terror outfits, Army chief General Bipin Rawat, on Saturday, made it clear that Indian authorities would not shy away from resorting to strong military action against Pakistan based terror groups yet again if it failed to stop pushing terrorism into India.

General Rawat, who was in the state capital at the concluding ceremony of Medex-2019 the field medical exercises of ASEAN and ASEAN Plus countries— said terrorism on Indian soil would not be tolerated. He was speaking at the convention.

Claiming that Indian Army was fully prepared to take action against Pakistan if they meddled with the peace of India, the Army chief said the army was ready with the plan to take action against terror camps still active in Pakistan.

“In future also such strikes will continue. If atmosphere will be vitiated, we will act again,” he said adding that if needed, the army would take action in consonance of political decision irrespective of the ongoing elections.

“Elections do not impact Army’s action,” he stated. The army chief elaborated by saying that plan to target Lashkar camps was also ready and that the Indian army was capable of facing any challenge in the aftermath of airstrikes.

Referring to army action to destroy terror hideouts along the Myanmar border, General Rawat said the Indian Army would not let any terror organisation use Indian soil to carry out terror activities. On joint raids recently conducted by Indian and Myanmar armies on terror camps at the border, General Rawat said he couldn’t divulge the number of camps destroyed but this exercise would continue in future as well.

Rs 210 crore of Army insurance funds sunk in IL

, by KS Ramaswamy

Case was taken up with AG to prematurely release Platinum grant from AOBF & Tr the lump-sum amount to AGIF to extend the EXTENDED INSURANCE beyond current stipulated period. AG fwd to AGIF which after consideration, replied Financially not feasible. This 26 yrs post retirement or 75 yrs perhaps is the current yardstick but we were deprived of it as our EI has expired much before 75/26 yrs post retirement.


Any knowledge on this, pl share.

The Army Group Insurance Fund Extended Insurance (EI) Scheme provides insurance cover to servicemen after leaving service. It provides Rs 6 lakh for officers and Rs 3 lakh for personnel below officer rank (PBOR) for a period of 26 years after retirement or 75 years of age, whichever is earlier. The amount is received by the family of the ex-serviceman in case of his death. The amount has been recently revised and is now Rs 10 lakh for officers and Rs 5 lakh for PBOR for all those who joined the scheme after January 1, 2014. For those who joined earlier, the amount will remain at the earlier rate of Rs 6 lakh and Rs 3 lakh for officers and PBOR respectively.

Disability Cover:

This concerns an individual who becomes disabled out of service prematurely due to injury or disease. The officers and JCOs/OR with 100 per cent disability will get an amount of Rs 25 lakh and Rs 12.5 lakh respectively. This amount gets proportionately reduced for lower element of disability upto 20 per cent. An ex gratia disability allowance is also granted by AGIF in case a member with 100% disability has been recommended a constant attendant.

AGIF Scholarship Scheme:

AGIF Scholarship Schemes for the sum of Rs 40,000 per annum are provided for wards of officers, JCOs and OR in 12 Army Welfare Educational Institutions (AWES) institutions.

While the Army chose to deny the earlier IANS story on how Army welfare funds may have been deployed in IL&FS bonds, saying, "It is informed that welfare funds of the Indian Army are invested only in nationalised; scheduled banks; PSUs as per existing policy. There is no investment from Army Battle Casualties Welfare Fund and Army Central Welfare Fund in IL&FS bonds as reported. This news article is rebutted for being false, infructuous and mala fide."

IANS has chosen to stick to its report. Here's how Army Group Insurance Fund (AGIF) is infected with this virus.

In its earlier story, now validated, IANS wrote: IANS learns that a few sections of the armed forces, primarily the army, have invested their corpus of funds in the once AAA-rated IL&FS bonds to secure their future. The Indian Army has three specific funds in which fellow countrymen can contribute - Army Welfare Fund Battle Casualties (set up in 2016 after the Siachen avalanche disaster and the Pathankot/Uri incidents), Army Central Welfare Fund and the Paraplegic Rehabilitation Centre Pune - towards the members/families of the armed forces who have made the supreme sacrifice for the nation. It is still not known whether these funds have invested in the virus-laden bonds.

The government does not fund the Army Group Insurance Fund scheme at all. A comparison of insurance cover and duration of cover provided to the generals and the jawans by the AGIF is as follows:

* Number of Generals: 350 (approximately)

* Monthly premium: Rs 5,000

* Annual premium: Rs 60,000

* Lt.-Generals insurance cover up to 60 years

* COAS insurance cover up to 62 years

* Annual contribution Rs 60,000

* Total annual contribution by the Generals is: Rs 60,000 multiplied by 350, which amounts to Rs 2 crore and 10 lakh.

Number of Jawans: 13,00,000 (approximately)

Annual contribution: Rs 30,000

Total annual contribution by jawans is: Rs 30,000 multiplied by 13,00,000, which amounts to Rs 3,900 crore.

These figures apply to just one year. The big question is: Who is tracking these funds? There are no answers to who will bear the liability if the huge amounts parked in toxic IL&FS bonds turn to junk. The first step will be taken if the army authorities begin by acknowledging there is a problem at hand..

Some of the features of mobile app are that a voter through EPIC number can get all personal information related to election. The EPIC number is a unique number given to the every Indian voter above the age of 18 years by the Commission. A voter can apply for making registration in voter list and can apply for making new voter ID, through and also see his or her name in the voter list.

Apart from making application for inclusion in voter list, a voter through can also apply for changes in his or her name if there is change in assembly constituencies, change in name or address in the booth within the same assembly segment; and raise a concern if he/she thinks that the information provided in the voter list is wrong.


The app is currently available only for Android devices, on the Google Play Store. To download, open the Google Play Store app on your device and search for Voter Helpline. The developer name should be Election Commission of India and the size of the app should be around 11MB. Hit the Install button and wait for the app to download. Once the app is installed, it should be added to your list of apps. In case you can’t find the app, just hit this link.


Once you open the app, you will be greeted with a disclaimer, just accept the option to get into the app. The user-interface is pretty simple and works rather well. The main page gives most of the information where you get tabs like Voter, Forms, Complaint, EVM, Elections and Results. At the bottom, there are more options where users can get additional information under the Explore, Current, Gallery, Downloads, and Voter Helpline buttons.
