    Ma'am you have taken the BALIDAN DAGGER in a wrong sense, it Signifies the ULTIMATE SACRIFICE, if the TASK DEMANDS SO . Rest assured these men are GHOSTS everything else is operationally under the spectrum of THE BALIDAN BADGE WHICH IS POINTING DOWN AND SHALL COME DOWN PIERCING THE ENEMY's HEART Fulfilling the meaning of the word SHATRUJEET APTLY.

    Being an army brat i think I understand what a soldier feels.

    I was specifically talking about Para SF’s insignia.

    Tributes paid to IAF commando killed in Kashmir
    http://www.tribuneindia.com/news/ch...to-iaf-commando-killed-in-kashmir/500545.html

    Chandigarh: Air Force personnel on Sunday paid floral tributes to Corporal Jyoti Prakash Nirala, a member of the IAF’s Garud Special Forces who was killed in anti-terrorist operations at Hajin in Kashmir on Saturday. The 31-year-old commando is survived by his wife Sushma Nand and a three-and-a-half-year-old daughter Jigyasa Kumari, who were residing in Chandigarh. He is the third Air Force commando in recent months to be killed in anti-terrorist operations in Kashmir.

    Nirala’s mortal remains were airlifted from Srinagar to Chandigarh on Sunday for onward movement to his native place Badiladih village in Rohtas district of Bihar where the last rites will take place with full military honours.

    Among those who laid wreaths on the coffin were the Air Officer Commanding 12 Wing, Air Commodore Arun Solanki, the Air Officer Commanding 3 Base Repair Depot, Air Commodore Sanjeev Sinha, and other senior officers posted here. For the past few months, the Air Force has been embedding Garud commandos with Army formations deployed in Jammu and Kashmir for operational experience and live situational training.

    The Garud force was established in 2004 to provide the IAF with a specialised ground force for guarding high-value strategic assets and undertake special operations like airborne assault, special reconnaissance, combat search and rescue, anti-hijacking and hostage rescue. TNS

    My eyes became wet reading this last letter of Vijyant Thapar .. a man who knew this will be his last, but still has beautiful thoughts to convey to his loved ones.

    Sadly there are vultures like Chidambaram, Farookh Abdullah, Digvijay,Kejriwal, Pappu, the whole Congress clan, who pillage and rape the nation and its citizens who are protected by martyrs like Vijyant.

    Salute to Vijayant. Jai Hind.

    Monetary Allowance for Widows of Gallantry Awards Recipients

    Recipients of the gallantry awards are entitled to the monetary allowance as per the letter of 1972 of Ministry of Defence (MoD), superseded by letter in 1995 of the MoD, which have been revised from time to time. As per the existing condition for grant of monetary allowance, the allowance shall be admissible to the recipient of the award and on his death to his widow lawfully married by a valid ceremony. The widow will continue to receive the allowance until her re-marriage or death. The payment of the allowance will, however, be continued to a widow who re-marries the late husband’s brother and lives a communal life with the living heir eligible for family pension.

    Representations were received from various quarters to remove the condition of the widow’s remarriage with the late husband’s brother for continuation of the monetary allowance.

    This issue was considered by the Government of India and it has now been decided to remove the condition of the widow’s remarriage with the late husband’s brother for continuation of the monetary allowance vide MoD letter dated November 16, 2017.

    The revised condition for grant of monetary allowance for recipients of gallantry awards is as under:-

    The allowance shall be admissible to the recipient of the award and on his death to his widow lawfully married by a valid ceremony. The widow will continue to receive the allowance until her death.

    A soldier’s widow will be eligible to draw monetary allowance for her husband’s gallantry even if she remarries someone other than her brother-in-law.

    The defence ministry on Tuesday announced that it has done away with a rule that mandated that an army widow would continue to get the monetary allowance only if she remarried the late soldier’s brother.

    In a statement, the ministry said it had received representations from several quarters to remove the condition for continuation of the monetary allowance.

    The archaic provision limited a widow’s option to make a fresh start in life.

    The provision stated that a widow will continue to receive the allowance until her remarriage or death, but she would be entitled to the money if she remarried her husband’s brother.

    It “has now been decided to remove the condition of the widow’s remarriage ... vide MoD letter dated November 16, 2017,” the ministry statement said.
