*Gap between jawan to Officer # Trade work should be must.. # Unnecessary workings... # Unnecessary time engagement. # No time / No motivation to Other Ranks to get good settlement towards Civil life afterwards this service. It is in Navy Army. # 60% of Army jawans are poor in their English knowledge, it's a drawback for them to crack a competitive exam post retirement. Any how.... I ❤️ my Signal corps. And I respect my Corps until my last breath. Jai Hind 🇮🇳
