The endeavour is expected to have a positive effect on 1.45 lakh of officers.

The proposal has been approved and is in its final stage of issue at Ministry of Defence (MoD).

The up gradation is to take place over a span of five years and will endow higher career progression to JCO and other concerned ranks.

Periodic Cadre Review is a must in the robust, responsive and resilient HR management system so that legitimate aspiration of the rank and file is met.
