1.    As part of the ongoing drive to reach the Veterans, PDESA has been interacting with the member’s of various Navy Foundation Charters. During the interaction of PDESA with members of certain charters, it has been brought to light that certain orders/ e-News letters especially related to pension etc are not known to them.


2.    In order to ensure wider dissemination of information, following efforts are being made by DESA:-


    (a)    Important policy letters are being put up on DESA page of IRFC website.


(b)    Important policy letters are being sent to various charters (President/ Vice President/ Secretary) for further dissemination.


(c)    Important issues are also being discussed during PDESA visit to the NF Charters.


3.    It is requested that all NF members visit DESA website, regularly and disseminate information to as many members as possible.


4.    In addition, it has also been observed that Secy/ President NF Charter are not able to communicate with NF Members due to their overseas visit, illnesses etc. To ensure continuity, Charters are requested to appoint standby members for co-ordination. The names of standby members be informed to DESA.


5.    Members may login to the following links to access the site/ blog:-

    this is regarding starte with,let me introduce myself , i completed my diploma course in navy as an artificer, and have completed 25 years of service since then and retiring jan 2012.according to indian gazaete mo no f-18-52/75-t-2/t-7 dated 22 jul 77 and mo no f-18-19/75/t-2 dated 26 may 77 .i am allegible for degree equivalent certificate.

    in airforce any airmen with 10 years service is equivalent to diploma and any air men with
    10 exeperience as diploma is equivalent to degree holder in his respective trades.they have already started issuing certificates vide the above indian gazaete.check in web site(

      dear raj kamal,
      i have personaly monitered this issue. letters quoted are not existing with govt of india. i had submitted an affidavit in aft chandigarh stating letters are not available with govt of india . only gazatte notiffication of 73 exists for equvalent for degree for the purposes of c,d jobs in g0vt. now all technical degrees have to be approved by nAICTE only. even aft chandigarh also examinied air force issue. could not validate 77 letter as it has been found as fake one!!!!!!
      hence navy is not issuing any quivalent certificates to any tech sailors !!

        Dear sir, how can one say that he has a 1973 document available but not a succeeding document of 1977 is available with him? This sounds absurd.

        The intention of navy upon this is questionable, how come then air force is issuing to their airmen.

        equivalent certificate for C & D post cannot be issued to an technical sailor as he is already serving in a B group cadre . on what ground a B group sailor is eligible for c & d group of posts in central government?

        dear prahraj,
        navy did not have letter of 1977 which never existed in first place. airforce also issuing certificate quoting high court direction and stating as diploma only as i have copy with me.i approached even airforce hq and they did not want to authenticate the letter other than court direction. aft chandigarh also squashed ran pettition . for your information, 1973 gazette notification is being valid and not letter. the same was questioned by aft also.
