    I have hardly seen Ducks given in the rations.

    Actually, as per the SRS (Schedule of Ration Scale) the nomenclature is 'Fowl Dressed' or 'Fowl Whole'.

    And in that classification and type of Fowl can be given.

    Big scam in Indian Army- soldiers ate expiry dated food!

    Rakhsa Mantri's response
    A week after government auditors exposed Army supplying stale food to jawans, Union Defence Minister A K Antony on Saturday gave an assurance that efforts were in progress to improve quality of rations given to them.

    In his message to the armed forces personnel on the eve of 64th Independence Day broadcast over radio, Antony said necessary provisions had also been made for supplying special rations for jawans deployed in counter-insurgency operations and high-altitude areas.

    "The government has taken several welfare measures for the defence personnel. We are making efforts to improve the quality of atta, rice, vegetables, tea, pulses and other items. Similarly, we have made a provision for special rations to troops deployed in counter-insurgency operations. Special rations have also been authorised for additional troops serving in high-altitude areas above 12,000 feet," he said in his address.

    The Comptroller and Auditor General had in its report last week slammed the defence ministry for supplying rotting food items that were unfit for human consumption to jawans, particularly those in Jammu and Kashmir and North East.

    ========================

    Hope this is resolved now...

    Duck eggs cost more and so the contractor would not like to go at a loss.

    Further, duck eggs are not what the troops are accustomed to.

    I don't have the SRS with me and so I don't remember the nomenclature of eggs.

    Imagine getting ostrich eggs or even that of a crow!

    Sad state of affairs in BSF though, the guy claimed higher officers sell most of the stock and these jawans face the brunt.
