An out of the box proposal which, at best, could be described as “Penny wise Pound foolish”. The only way it could be made viable is by having an undeclared conscription & inducting these persons in to Terrotorial Army with compulsory tour of duty for two months once in three years after the initial 3 year stint. Otherwise it will remain a white elephant for the Army

A ToD will get 85% junk form the available job market for the armed forces and irreversible drain/ loss tot in the long runis sure shot happening. B The armed forces critical preparedness and war efficiency/ efficacy will be seriously be downgraded and compromised beyond redemption. C Yes The civil world and the persons trained and released to the civil stream will benifitted 500% but at what cost to the armed forces or nations’ operational preparedness.

Do you really think an IITian will join TOD ? A person who knows he is only for short stint, will he not like to prepare himself for next challenge rather that concentrating on present?

Whoever is thinking the Army will compromise the parameters , they are fully wrong .officers has to go through as usual SSB procedure and jawans as usual recruitment procedure. So be rest assured fauz don’t trust in luck or recommendations but skills and strategy. It is my experience.

The concept is really superb, really most of the graduates wanted to serve the nation, and wanted to be an army person at least once but not as permanent duty, it my leads to irritation, but it is a good opportunity to experience army, to be well trained, and to serve the nation. I’m also a graduate who wills to be an army officer.

If this proposal is approved defenetly I’ll join the as Tod officer.

Now, let’s hail the beurocracy for another master plan Army Officers via TOD’s.
Why don’t we get beurocrats for 3 years (tour of beurocracy) or tour de politics ( you cant stand in elections after 3 years.
All this for the government exchequer ( please don’t recall the bank NPA).
A non prepared ,semitrained, amateur army….
WTF
