Tribunal rejects plea of Major Gen on alleged biased ACR
New Delhi: The Armed Forces Tribunal today
dismissed a plea of a Major General, who had alleged that he
was assessed in a "biased" manner by his superiors in his
annual confidential report (ACR) which denied him promotion to
the rank of Lieutenant General.
In his plea, Maj Gen Ashok Kumar Singh had contended
that in his ACR of 2006-07, he was assessed by then Northern
Army Commander Lt Gen H S Panag as the Commander of a division
which only had a skeleton staff of around 1,000 troops.
An Army division generally has around 10,000 troops
under its command.
Finding no merits in the petition, the Tribunal Bench
headed by Justice A K Mathur and Lt Gen M L Naidu dismissed
the officer`s plea.
Panag had denied any bias in his assessment saying
that he had seen the officer`s performance on ground.
Singh had contended that his command performance was
assessed with "lack of inputs" since he was not performing any
operational duties as there were not many troops under him.
The Major General had contended that he was commanding
the 27th division in Jammu and Kashmir when this particular
ACR was written. The troops under his division were pulled out
of the state and sent to another location.
Singh is presently posted as in-charge of
administration at the Lucknow-based Central Command of Army.
