IAF seems to be in "very bad shape", observes Tribunal

The Tribunal's Principal Bench headed by Chairperson Justice A K Mathur made the remarks while issuing notice to the IAF and asking it to file a reply in a pension-related plea filed by a Corporal.

While hearing the case, he said that with the kind of cases being filed by the service personnel, it seems that the IAF was in a "very bad shape" and showed the "petty-mindedness" of the authorities.

The case was filed by Corporal Chanderbhan Dhankar, who has been refused pension by the IAF even though he has served only five days less than the mandatory pensionable service of 15 years.

The Tribunal had last week too slammed the IAF authorities for their "arbitrary" approach against airmen and asked them to be more "humane".

Hearing a plea by Corporal Ashit Kumar Mishra, who was not given an NOC by the Indian Air Force to join a group 'B' civil service job in Uttar Pradesh, the Tribunal had termed such an approach as "suicidal".
