Judge Advocate General Department Examination Award
Officers of the three Services are granted a one-time award on qualifying the JAG Branch exam, which is presently Rs. 9,600. In the Joint Services Memorandum (JSM) it has been argued that this award is admissible to very few officers every year. Hence, it should be abolished and merged with Cat-III courses of Qualification Grant.
Analysis and Recommendations
This allowance should be subsumed under Higher Qualification Incentive for Defence Personnel.
