    The Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi will unfurl the National Flag from the ramparts of the Red Fort, tomorrow to celebrate the 69th Independence Day. After unfurling the Tricolour, Shri Narendra Modi will address the nation.

    On arrival at Lahori Gate of Red Fort, the Prime Minister will be received by the Defence Minister Shri Manohar Parrikar, Minister of State for Defence Rao Inderjit Singh and Defence Secretary Shri G Mohan Kumar.

    The Defence Secretary will introduce the General Officer Commanding, Delhi Area, Lt. Gen Rajan Ravindran to the Prime Minister. The GoC Delhi Area will then conduct the Prime Minister to the Saluting Base where a combined Inter-Services and Police Guards will present general salute to the Prime Minister. Thereafter, Shri Narendra Modi will inspect the Guard of Honour.

    The Guard of Honour contingent for the Prime Minister will consist of one officer and 24 men each from Army, Navy, Air Force and Delhi Police. The Guard of Honour will be positioned directly in front of the National Flag across the moat below the ramparts.

    This year, Navy being the coordinating Service, the Guard of Honour will be commanded by Commander Yoginder Sharma of the Indian Navy. The Army Contingent in the Prime Minister’s Guard will be commanded by Major Sumiran Vyas, the Navy contingent by Lt Cdr Chanoraveer Singh Yadav, while Sqn Ldr Shakthi Vigneshwar will lead the Air Force contingent and the Delhi Police contingent by SDPO Shri Rohit Meena.

    The Army contingent for Prime Minister's Guard is drawn from the 8th Jammu & Kashmir Light Infantry (Siachen). The battalion was raised as the First Battalion Border Scouts by volunteers who took up arms in the aftermath of communal passion and the smouldering embers of partition to check the multitude of Kabailies intruding into Poonch on 18 December 1947. Born in Battle and Purified in Blood, the battalion was re-designated as 08th Jammu & Kashmir Militia on 15 April 1948.

    In 1971 war, the battalion was outnumbered but never outclassed in valour and fought the defensive battle successfully despite enemy’s passion for Chhamb. For this the battalion was awarded Battle Honour – Laleali and Piquet 707. The Regiment was rechristened Jammu & Kashmir Light Infantry on 27 April 1976.

    During the Siachen tenure in June 1987, the battalion created history by capturing ‘Quaid Post’ at an altitude of 21,153 feet, the highest battlefield in the world. The post was renamed as ‘Bana Top’ in honour of Naib Subedar Bana Singh, Param Vir Chakra. The battalion was awarded COAS Unit Citation in 2001 for its sterling performance in Jammu & Kashmir, Poonch Sector. The Battalion established the United Nations Mission in Sudan 2006 and was conferred with United Nations Unit Citation in the year 2007 for handling the bloodiest of clashes ever in the history of Sudan.

    The battalion yet again proved its mettle during its 2008 tenure at Kupwara in Jammu & Kashmir when Naib Subedar Chuni Lal, Vir Chakra, Sena Medal, who laid down his life following the highest traditions of Indian Army while fighting terrorists, was bestowed with the highest peacetime gallantry award, Ashok Chakra (Posthumous). With this, the battalion joined the elite group of ‘Bravest of the Brave’ battalions. Apart from this, the battalion was once again conferred with Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Unit Citation in 2009 for its splendid performance on the Line of Control in Jammu & Kashmir.

    The Battalion is presently one of the most decorated battalions of the Indian Army with Naib Subedar Chuni Lal, Ashok Chakra (Posthumous), Vir Chakra, Sena Medal as one of the most decorated soldier. Presently, the Battalion is performing the prestigious duty of Ceremonial Army Guard to the President of India.

    After inspecting the Guard of Honour, the Prime Minister will proceed to the ramparts of the Red Fort where he will be greeted by Defence Minister Shri Manohar Parrikar, Minister of State for Defence Rao Inderjit Singh, Chief of the Army Staff General Dalbir Singh, Chief of Air Staff Air Chief Marshal Arup Raha and Chief of Naval Staff Admiral RK Dhowan. The GOC Delhi area will conduct the Prime Minister to the dais to unfurl the National Flag.

    The unfurling of the tri-colour will synchronize with the 21 Gun Salute fired by the valiant gunners of the elite 871 Field Regiment. The ceremonial battery will be commanded by Lt. Col Aditya Kumar Devrani, Shaurya Chakra, Sena Medal and the Gun Position Officer will be Regiment Havildar Major (Assistant Instructor in Gunnery) Sonu Yadav.

All Service personnel in uniform will stand and salute. The Band will be commanded by S Jankiraman, Master Chief Petty Officer Musician 2nd Class.

    Two Naval Officers, Lieutenant VSSG Rao and Lieutenant Pramod will be positioned on either side of the saluting dais for the Prime Minister for ADC duties. Lt Commander Deepika Choudhary will assist the Prime Minister in unfurling of the National Flag.

    The Army contingent for the National Flag Guard is drawn from the 9th Battalion of the Garhwal Rifles. The Battalion was raised on 01 January 1965 by Late Lt Col PGR Nair. Since then, the Battalion has served in varied terrain, participated in numerous operations and has distinguished itself in all spheres. The Battalion has completed 50 years of distinguished and dedicated service to the nation on 01 January this year. Ninth Battalion of the Garhwal Rifles is the only battalion of the Garhwal Rifles to have been awarded the Ashok Chakra, the highest peacetime gallantry award in 1985. The Battalion is one of the first units of the Indian Army to be awarded the Chief of the Army Staff’s Unit Appreciation in 1992. The Battalion has so far been awarded two Kirti Chakras, three Shaurya Chakras, seven Sena Medals, one Vishist Seva Medal, one Jeevan Raksha Padak, two Mention-in-Despatches, 21 Chief of Army Staff Commendation Cards, one Vice Chief of Army Staff Commendation Card and 27 GOC-in-C Commendation Cards.

    Seven hundred cadets of the National Cadet Corps coming from 20 schools of Delhi Directorate comprising Army, Navy and Air Force wings are participating in the flag hoisting ceremony this year. The cadets will take part in the singing of patriotic songs along with the school children. In total, three thousand five hundred girl students from 45 government schools of eastern, north-eastern, northern, north-western, and central zones of Directorate of Education, Government of Delhi will sing the National Anthem. They will also sing patriotic songs in different regional languages during the celebrations. On this occasion these school children will display the formation of ‘Jai Bharat’.

    Gallantry Awards (Navy)

    SHAURYA CHAKRA


    FOR BRAVERY AND COURAGE WHILE EVACUATING INDIAN & FOREIGN

    NATIONALS DURING ‘OPS RAHAT’ FROM YEMEN


    CDR MILIND MOHAN MOKASHI (04755-F)


    Cdr Mohan Milind Mokashi, Commanding Officer INS Sumitra, while carrying out Anti-Piracy Operations in the Gulf of Aden, on 31 Mar 15 received a directive to proceed for ‘Operation Rahat’ to evacuate thousands of Indian and Foreign nationals, from the war- ravaged Yemen.

    On receiving the Op Directive, Cdr Mokashi immediately took stock of the challenging situation and proceeded to Aden Harbour. While entering Aden Harbour on the night of 31 Mar 15, he observed heavily armed Houthi rebels patrolling harbour in boats and also stationed on jetty. Additionally, he also observed occurrence of fierce fighting and air strikes by Saudi led coalition. To ensure safety of hundreds of innocent Indian evacuees comprising ladies, children and elderly persons, the officer immediately deployed armed boats manned by sailors in close proximity of the ship and also created a cordon of the ship’s Quick Reaction Team (MARCOS) around the evacuees, to neutralise any incoming threat. In display of resolute courage he personally lead from front in the prevailing challenging situation and positioned himself at the embarkation point, so as to take positive control of the safety boats and quick reaction teams. Braving the heavy firing and shelling, the officer took charge of the situation and ensured safe embarkation of Indian and Foreign evacuees amid heavy cross firing. The officer also ensured that during the entire operation the ship remained in the highest state of readiness with ship’s weapon systems manned to counter any eventuality.

    While executing embarkation of evacuees in darkness with continuous occurrence of bombing, shelling and small arms fire, the officer faced a tense situation wherein few Houthi rebels suddenly approached evacuee cordon. The officer in the face of active hostility used mix of deterrence, diplomacy, and tact to diffuse the explosive situation and ensured safe evacuation of the stranded Indians and Foreign nationals. His brave efforts resulted in successful evacuation of 1621 evacuees, during five different operations, which he undertook from the Port of Aden, Port Ash Shihr and Port Al Hodeidah. The officer’s inspirational leadership during fog of war ensured that no untoward incident took place in the war zone which could have spiralled into adverse international ramifications.

    Cdr Milind Mohan Mokashi, thus displayed, unparalleled valour, conspicuous gallantry, bold and daring decisive actions beyond the call of duty, under heavy firing and shelling at war ravaged Yemen, which resulted in the successful evacuation of 1621 Indian and foreign evacuees. For this conspicuous act of personal bravery Cdr Milid Mohan Mokashi, has been awarded of Shaurya Chakra.


    NAO SENA MEDAL (GALLANTRY)

    CAPTAIN RAJESH DHANKHAR (03587-A)


    On 30 Mar 15, Captain Rajesh Dhankhar, Commanding Officer INS Mumbai, was tasked to undertake mass evacuation of Indian nationals from war-torn Yemen as part of ‘Ops Rahat’.The officer in the face of hostility, violence, fierce fighting in the Port of Aden, undertook most daring execution of operations, leading to the safe evacuation of 441 Indians and foreign nationals.

    On arriving off Aden, Captain Rajesh Dhankhar received reports of heavy shelling in the Port area, with warships also coming under fire. On receiving this specific input, the officer positioned the ship’s Force Protection Team in boats and on jetty to provide necessary fire cover to the evacuees. He ensured that all exit / entry routes to the evacuee enclosure on the jetty were strategically plugged so as to ensure their safety from any threat. Undeterred by the prevailing security scenario ashore, amidst heavy bombing, shelling and small arms fire, the officer led his team from the front and continued his efforts to evacuate stranded personnel even during dark hours. He showed utter disregard to his personal safety and displayed raw courage during entire evacuation operation which was fraught with danger and risk due to continuous bombarding and firing.

    While evacuation operation was in last phase of completion, it was brought to the notice of the Officer that number Indian Nationals were still stranded at the jetty entrance awaiting assistance. Caring little for the inherent dangers in evacuation during dark hours, that too at an unknown location, he acted swiftly, reached the location in cover of darkness and laid an effective cordon of the ship’s Quick Reaction Team around the stranded personnel. His brave effort resulted in successful evacuation of 262 Indians and 179 foreign nationals under extreme hostile conditions.

    Captain Rajesh Dhankhar (03587-A), displayed dauntless courage, most conspicuous gallantry, bold and daring actions under most challenging circumstances, wherein, he successfully accomplished evacuation from the combat zone of Yemen and brought laurels to the nation. For his rare tactical skills, unmatched professional acumen and conspicuous bravery at the face of grave danger, Captain Rajesh Dhankhar (03587-A), has been awarded Nao Sena Medal (Gallantry).


    NAO SENA MEDAL (GALLANTRY)


    CAPTAIN PRADEEP SINGH (03702-N)


    Captain Pradeep Singh has been in command of INS Tarkash since 21 Jan 15. When the ship was deployed for Op Rahat in Apr 15, the officer played a sheet anchor role in the meticulous planning and a most daring execution of operations leading to the safe evacuation of around 600 civilians of 18 different nationalities from AI Hodeidah and Aden harbours in the face of hostility and the back drop of violence and fighting ashore, in the port and on the jetty. Mindful of the poor security situation and always wanting to be in a position to exit the combat zone, the officer decided neither to go alongside, nor anchor the ship and instead remained underway and maintained constant movement, stopping only to embark civilians from boats.

    Apart from evacuating the above mentioned people, the officer improvised the available information and resources and evacuated the body of the first Indian casualty in Yemen conflict in a make shift coffin. The officer also evacuated 10 nurses who were stuck in heavy cross firing, directing them to the safer, though farther little Aden oil terminal jetty and using local boats to bring them onboard. The evacuation operation was fraught with extreme danger and risk due to continuous bombarding and firing near the port area.

    The officer calmly faced a tense situation when encountered with 2-3 boats with AK-47 armed Yemenese closing the ship. The officer directed both the armed RIBs to intercept these armed boats, conveyed relevant RoE to the OI/C in each boat and brought to bear greater force on to these armed boats. Thereafter with a mix of diplomacy, deterrence, tact, force and hope the potentially explosive situation was defused and the armed boats were made to return to harbour. In the face of opposition and active hostility, the officer led the troops from the front being physically present at the evacuation point.

    He ensured a very robust Force Protection Measures organisation onboard judiciously using all assets onboard including utilising both the RIBs, VBSS team, sniper and Prahar. The very effective baggage screening organisation onboard resulted in the recovery of two AK-47 magazines with 56 rounds, several empty cartridges and knives from the baggage of embarked evacuees.

    In the face of these threats, the officer displayed extreme tenacity, bravery and courage to rally his men to achieve a feat, which the Navy is proud of. His maturity, composure in the face of rebel activities and valour have been vital to the mission’s success and have boosted the country’s and the Indian Navy’s image. For this conspicuous act of personal bravery in leading his ship’s teams in an exemplary manner under fire in the combat zone off Yemen, Captain Pradeep Singh has been awarded Nao Sena Medal (Gallantry).

    Putting it in this thread since this has been released by Home Ministry on occasion of independence day.

    Steps taken to make the Country Safe and Secure

    Independence Day Special Feature

    The Union Ministry of Home Affairs has taken a series of proactive steps to make the country safe and secure. Overall security scenario in the country continues to remain peaceful barring stray incidents. Security situation in the North Eastern States is being monitored regularly at various levels, with sustained Counter-Insurgency operations against militant outfits. There is significant drop in the Left Wing Extremism (LWE) violence. Security Forces neutralized 132 terrorists in Jammu & Kashmir during 2014 and the current year. Peaceful conduct of Assembly Elections in J&K, with record 66% voter turnout during November-December 2014 has proved to the world that given a conducive environment, the peace loving people of J&K have faith in the democratic process. Borders are being managed effectively to counter the threat of cross-border terrorism.


    Women’s Safety has been my prime concern. On the 1st of January this year Delhi Police launched an application called ‘Himmat’ which receives distress signals from registered women users of mobile phones and facilitates physical presence of police in 5-7 minutes. MHA has initiated steps to set up a Nationwide Emergency Response System to respond to the needs of women in distress across the country. Department of Telecommunications has already allocated Emergency Number “112” for this system. Victims in need or their relatives may contact the “112” system using any mode of communication viz. landline telephone, mobile phone, SMS, e-mail, chat services, voice over internet and mobile apps etc. “112 System” is being designed to handle 10 lakh calls per day which will require approximately 3,500 personnel to handle these calls in all the States/UTs once fully implemented. This project would cost Rs.321 crores which includes the cost of technical infrastructure and also the operation and maintenance cost for five years.


    Our country has vast potential to generate millions of jobs and earn precious foreign exchange through tourism, but this has not been adequately tapped. With a view to promote short duration tourism and expedite grant of Visa, Government of India has launched e-Tourist Visa scheme (old name: Tourist Visa on Arrival) on 27th November 2014 for foreign tourists. So far, the scheme has been extended to 77 countries at nine designated airports. The Ministry plans to extend this facility to 36 more countries and seven airports from August 15, 2015. The scheme also facilitates international business seekers to avail visa on short notice. The scheme also has a positive impact on medical tourism of the country. This initiative of Government of India has received an overwhelming response. Since the launch of the Scheme on 27th November 2014, about 2 lakh e-tourist visas have been issued so far.



    Due to onset of militancy in 1990, most of the Kashmiri Pandit families along with some families of Sikhs and Muslims migrated from Kashmir Valley to Jammu, Delhi and other places of the country. At present, there are about 62,000 registered Kashmiri migrant families in the country [40,668 families in Jammu, about 19,338 families in Delhi/NCR and about 1995 families in other states]. Cash relief to the Kashmiri migrants in Jammu and Delhi/ NCR was enhanced w.e.f. 1st May 2015 from Rs.1,650/- per head per month to Rs.2,500/- per head per month, subject to a maximum of Rs.10,000 per family. Earlier, it was Rs.6,600 per family.During the current financial year, an amount of Rs.320 crore has been earmarked forrehabilitation of the Kashmiri migrants.


    During militancy in early 1990s, some families started migrating from the hilly areas of Jammu region due to perceived security threats. It started from hills to Doda district in the beginning but subsequently spread to other districts of the state. The Government of J&K started the registration of Jammu migrants in the year 2006. A total of 1,054 families comprising 5,698 persons have been registered in five districts of Doda/Kishtwar, Reasi, Rajouri, Ramban & Poonch. The migrated families of Jammu migrants have been rehabilitated by the State Government of J&K in the districts of Jammu, Reasi, Udhampur & Ramban. The Ministry of Home Affairs has approved the cash relief to the migrants of the hilly areas of Jammu division at par with the Kashmiri migrants. The estimated expenditure per year will be Rs. 13.45 crore.

    My Ministry, vide its letter dated 16.12.2014, has conveyed to the concerned State Governments/UTs to pay additional Rs.5.00 lakh per deceased person to the next of kin of those who died during 1984 anti-Sikh riots. The Government of India is reimbursing this amount to the States/UTs. Besides, Justice Mathur Committee has been constituted to re-investigate deserving riot cases.

    In January, 2015, I approved certain concessions for the West Pakistan Refugees (WPRs) settled in the State of Jammu and Kashmir after considering the problems being faced by them. I have directed the Heads of all Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) that such WPRs from J&K, who are Indian citizens and have valid Voter IDs, be considered for recruitment in the forces, including the special recruitment drives conducted in the State. Besides, I have written to the Defence Minister that similar concessions, like waiving off the condition of producing DC (Domicile Certificate) and other Identity Certificate, may be permitted in the recruitment to the Armed Forces. I have also written a letter to the State Government of J&K to resume issuing the DC to WPRs settled in the State so as to enable such people avail equal employment opportunities.

    Instructions have also been issued to the Department of School Education in the Ministry of Human Resource Development to accommodate the children of such WPRs of J&K for admission to the Kendriya Vidyalayas in the State. Similar instructions have also been issued to the Department of Higher Education in the Ministry of Human Resource Development to extend those concessions available to the wards of Kashmiri migrants to the wards of WPRs of J&K for admission to technical/professional institutes outside J&K.

    Under the ‘UDAAN’ scheme aiming to provide employment to the unemployed youth of Jammu & Kashmir, 3,361 candidates have been trained, 3,133 have been offered jobs and about 2,500 are working in various companies in the country.


    The Government of India and the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN) successfully concluded the dialogue on Naga political issue, which has existed for six decades, and signed an agreement on Aug 03, 2015 in the presence of the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi. This agreement will restore peace and pave the way for prosperity in the North East. It will advance a life of dignity, opportunity and equity for the Naga people, based on their genius and consistent with the uniqueness of the Naga people and their culture and traditions. Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has on a number of occasions including during visits to the Northeast region, articulated his vision for transforming the region and has attached the highest priority to peace, security, connectivity and economic development in the region. This has also been at the heart of the Government’s foreign policy, especially ‘Act East’ Policy.


    The Ministry of Home Affairs enhanced financial powers in respect of items such as “Major and Minor Works, Special Repairs, Land Acquisition and Hiring of Buildings/Accommodation” to the Directors General of Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) and Directors of Intelligence Agencies in December, 2014. The financial powers have been doubled from Rupees Five Crores to Rs. Ten Crores in respect of Major Works that are to be executed by CPWD and Public Works Organisations. Similarly, limits for Major and Minor Departmental Works and Land Acquisition were also substantially raised. The delegation of financial powers to the DGs of CAPFs for the procurement of Machinery & Equipment and Arms & Ammunition have been doubled to Rs. 20 crores with a view to streamline and expedite the processes for the Modernization Plan. The Modernization Plan II of CAPFs has a total projected cost of Rs.11,009 crores till March 2017.


    Presently, all information related to crimes and criminal justice is generally maintained in physical form. This has its own limitations in sharing of data among police stations, districts and states. Digitization of this data and development of a national data base of crimes and criminals would help enhance the operational efficiency of the crime investigation agencies. With this objective in mind, the Ministry launched the Crimes and Criminals Tracking Network and Systems (CCTNS) Project in 2009 with an outlay of Rs.2,000 crores. Approximately 71% (more than 10,000) police stations in the country have started using the software developed under the CCTNS for the registration of FIRs. Internet connections using Virtual Private Network (VPN) over broadband have also been provided to more than 80% police stations and higher police offices. Steps are afoot to extend this project by another two years so that the remaining components viz, a Central Citizen Portal and a central database are developed which will provide useful services to the citizens speedily. The intended services include: (i) Reporting a crime, (ii) Passport verification, (iii) Other kind of Police Verification (iv) Accessing Victim Compensation Fund, (v) Accessing Legal Services, (vi) Human trafficking and missing persons, (vii) List of wanted/ most wanted criminals (viii) Publication of a list of Proclaimed Offenders (ix) Publication of a list of charge-sheeted offenders in cases pertaining to crime against women. The extended project also proposes to integrate with e-courts and e-prison applications to improve the efficiency of the criminal justice system in the country. The CCTNS project after extension is expected to be fully operational by March, 2017.


    Quantum of compensation under the NDRF and SDRF has been more than doubled and now the farmers with crop loss between 33% and 49% have been made eligible to seek the financial assistance.
