Recognise May 10, 1951 as Gen. V K Singh’s official DoB, say ex-army officers

16-March-2012

Vol 3 | Issue 11

In an unprecedented development in the history of Indian Army, several ex-army officers starting from the rank of Lt Gen, have submitted a memorandum to the President of India in support of the Chief of Army Staff, Gen. V K Singh, in the age controversy issue and have urged the President not to entertain any proposal to appoint a new COAS until the age dispute is settled. (List of signatories has also been provided.)

Gen. V K Singh

Following is the Text of the Memorandum

To,
H.E. The President of India
Rashtrapati Bhavan
New Delhi Dated: March 3, 2012

Your Excellency,

This is a plea for justice from India’s Ex-servicemen who have given their life’s best to the nation and their extended families. Ordinarily an occasion for such a plea would not have arisen, but in these days of extraordinary happenings, if we do not stand up and be counted, posterity will never forgive us. These ‘extraordinary happenings’ pertain to the contrived ‘Date of Birth’ (DoB) controversy of the serving Chief of the Army Staff that has reverberations throughout the length and breadth of the Country.

Your Excellency as President of the Indian Republic and Supreme Commander of the country’s Armed Forces is the appropriate forum to ventilate our grievance and seek redress. Hence this Memorandum.

The circumstances under which General VK Singh, COAS went to the Supreme Court of India seeking justice is too well known for us to recount here. On 10th February 2012, Hon’ble Supreme court ‘disposed of’ the matter with a brief order. The relevant/operative portion of the order is reproduced below for the sake of clarity.

Para 5. We grant permission to the respondent (Union of India) to withdraw the order dated December 30, 2011 to the extent noted above. In view thereof, the petitioner's grievance with regard to the part of the order dated December 30, 2011 which deals with the merits of the controversy does not survive.

Para 10. As a matter of fact, the question before us in the Writ Petition is not about the determination of actual date of birth of the petitioner, but it concerns the recognition of a particular date of birth of the petitioner (VK Singh) by the respondent (Union of India) in the official service record.

Para 12. Writ Petition is disposed of as withdrawn.


This order, contrary to the distortions dished out by myriad of spin-doctors and super-hype by sections of mass media, puts the ball back in the courts of the Union of India, meaning Government of India to ‘recognize a particular date of birth of General VK Singh in the official service record’.

Your Excellency is well aware that ‘Government of India’ means the President as defined in Section 3 of the General Clauses Act. The Defence Minister (Raksha Mantri) exercises Executive power on behalf of the President by virtue of delegation of power under the Rules of Business. Such exercise of delegated power totally prohibits any arbitrary and wanton exercise of authority which is violative of Article 14 of the Constitution which does not allow arbitrariness anywhere.

If the so called ‘confusion’ in the Ministry of Defence (MoD), headed by Raksha Mantri about the DoB was genuine, the confidential communication dated 01 Jul 2011 (A/4501/01/GEN/MS(1)) from Lt.-Gen. GM Nair, Military Secretary to the Defence Secretary, should have set things right and the matter given a quietus. This letter categorically states that 10 May 1951 was taken as the DoB by various Selection Boards for promotion of Gen VK Singh to select ranks:

• No: 2 Selection Board, Sept 1996 ~ Fresh case 1970 batch for promotion to the acting rank of Brigadier;

• No: 1 Selection Board, 25 Oct 2001 ~ Fresh case 1970 batch for promotion to the acting rank of Maj. Gen;

• No: 1 Selection Board, 18/19 Sept 2003 ~ Special Review (Fresh) Case 1970 Batch for promotion to the acting rank of Maj. Gen; and

• Special Selection Board, 30 Sept 2005 ~ Fresh case 1970 Batch for promotion to the acting rank of Lt. Gen.

The above letter from the MS was based on documentary evidence available in the Army Headquarters as well as the MoD that conclusively established the following:

• Till 2006 there was no dispute about the DoB – 10 May, 1951 – of Gen VK Singh, a fact accepted by the Army Headquarters when the discrepancy was first brought up by the Union Service Public Commission. In short, Gen Singh never sought a “change”. He was just resisting an effort by vested interests to “change” his birth year from 1951 to 1950 for extraneous reasons.

• Within months of erroneously filling up army chief’s UPSC application form recording YoB as 1950, several documents were submitted to correct the error including letter from Commanding Officer, 14 Rajput Regiment stating that Gen Singh’s date of birth maintained in (his) office is 10 May, 1951 based on records of Military Hospital, Pune.

• The Rajasthan state government’s Secondary School Board issued a school leaving certificate recording Gen Singh’s date of birth as May 10, 1951.

• By law, what the Adjutant General’s Branch says about the personal and professional record of an army officer is supposed to be the last word. In this case the AG’s records clearly state the DoB 10 May I951.

• In an opinion given in February 14, 2011, Government of India Ministry of Law & Justice clearly stated that Gen Singh’s “high school certificate has greater evidentiary value.” This should have been enough to seal the case.

While so, the whole thing was raked up in 2006 as part of a conspiracy and the DoB of 10 May, 1950 was contrived in a most arbitrary manner to cut short Gen. VK Singh’s tenure and impose someone else in his place. This can be substantiated from the following facts and events:

• The UPSC application form was dug up by MS Branch from nowhere to illegally tamper the DoB of Gen VK Singh and an Army List was published without authentication by Adjutant General Branch, the official record keeper of service of army officers.

• This UPSC application form, which could be easily tampered with, was used to supersede the School Certificate which is the legal document recognized by law as proof of DoB, in spite of the fact that UPSC itself had accepted the DOB as 10 May 1951?

• Two former Amy Chiefs as part of a pre-planned conspiracy indulged in skulduggery by pressurising VK Singh to ‘commit’ 10 May 1950 as his DoB?

• When the issue reached the MoD, the concerned Joint Secretary (Bimal Jhulka) directed the MS Branch to conduct a detailed inquiry into the matter in consultation with the AG’s Branch.

• No inquiry was conducted as directed. Yet in subsequent years stand taken by the same MoD dishonestly referred to this ‘inquiry’ that was never conducted to reject Gen Singh’s genuine claim of 10 May 1951 as his DoB!

What is more, a canard was spread that since VK Singh has given ‘commitments’ to former Army Chiefs ‘accepting’ his year of birth as1950 he cannot now claim 1951 as his YoB. This is absurd because the so called commitments have no value and are untenable in the face of legal documents stating 1951 as YoB and the fact that all his Selection Boards had factored 1951 for empanelling him for promotion and posting as Brigadier, Maj. Gen and Lt. Gen. Actually in this case principle of 'unconscionable bargain' applies. This relates to 'entrapping deal on very unfair terms and between unequal parties' and is legally unsustainable.

Supreme Court in its order has neither endorsed the entry in the UPSC application form, nor upheld the so called ‘commitment’ given by VK Singh. Instead the Court has left the issue open for the Union of India to ‘recognize a particular DoB as his date of birth in the official service record’

Your Excellency, the indisputable facts brought out above raises certain fundamental issues with respect to General VK Singh as a citizen and an officer of the Indian Army selected and commissioned as per the Rules of Recruitment. As per law, School certificate is the only document to establish DoB and in this case illegality is being committed by ignoring this statutory evidence and entertaining a piece of paper (UPSC application form) thereby inflicting grave injustice upon Gen. Singh.

This case of serious illegality and injustice commenced with the curious ‘look down policy’ initiated by the then Chief of the Army Staff (General JJ Singh) in 2006 to determine the ‘line of succession’ and to install a favourite as COAS in May 2012. For this purpose the UPSC application form mistakenly mentioning 1950 as his year of birth has been dug out and used as the ‘brahmastra’ to truncate Gen. VK Singh’s tenure to a two year period as COAS, in order to clear the passage for the favourite.

The fallout of this crude manipulation indulged in by vested interests is the sordid age-row of VK Singh that has rocked the nation. The actual DoB is a matter of record as rightly observed by the Supreme Court. But what is of concern is the manner in which the controversy was first stoked, then fanned and finally, brought into play with a deliberate intention to discredit and defame a serving Army Chief, thereby impaling the institution of the Army. This has serious adverse effect on the morale and prestige of the Armed Forces.

Your Excellency, we do not have to tell you that it is our Armed Forces who have defended and protected our democracy through their valour, sacrifice and total sense of patriotism, bereft of any political ambitions as in our neighbouring countries. It is largely because of them that India stands tall as a free and sovereign Republic.

Among the armed forces, the Army is the largest and the most visible face. The chief of that force has a special status in the nation’s affairs, irrespective of his place in the order of precedence. And he cannot be distinguished from the Institution he heads. And, when an institution like the Army is impaled, it is the people who bleed. It is therefore imperative that the President should intervene since she/he is also the Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces

Further, above facts reveal that Raksha Mantri who exercise only delegated authority, fell for the manipulations and abused that authority thereby causing serious damage to an institution and gross injustice to its serving chief. He has done this:

• by raking up the settled issue of Gen. Singh’s DoB as 10 May 1951,

• by reversing it to 10 May 1950 relying on a piece of paper as against legally accepted documents and a so called ‘commitment’ that is untenable,

• by deliberately ignoring the AG Branch, the official record-keeper and falsifying established records in the MS Branch with ulterior motive, and

• by endorsing and trying to institutionalize a feudal, nepotist and autocratic system called ‘line of succession’ that could endanger ‘national security’.

This is an eminent case that warrants intervention by the original source of that authority – The President of India – to undo the damage and injustice caused by such arbitrary and mala fide actions and to direct recognition of General VK Singh’s date of birth as 10 May 1951 in the official service record.

Your Excellency, through this Memorandum we, the Ex-servicemen and their extended families earnestly request you to take appropriate action under Constitutional provisions and/or order an independent high-level inquiry headed by a serving Judge of the Supreme Court so that truth is ascertained, damage undone and justice rendered in this matter. This is imperative because the conspiracy and manipulation behind Army Chief’s DoB controversy have far reaching consequences on the ‘security of the state’, making it a matter of grave public importance.

With full faith in your sense of justice we, the Ex-servicemen and our extended families hereby sign/endorse this Memorandum. Pending appropriate action on the contents of this Memorandum we would request you not to entertain any proposal to appoint a new COAS, and institutionalize the obnoxious ‘line of succession’ theory which in fact is the real motive of the manipulators.

Yours Truly
