Gen Singh yesterday lost his legal battle on the age row
in the Supreme Court which said the government decision on his
date of birth will apply for his service matters, forcing him
to withdraw his petition.
The court refused to interfere with May 10, 1950 as his date of birth maintained in the service record by which he
will have to retire on May 31 this year.
