    Respected sir,
    I retired from Indian Navy after 15 yrs of service in the rank of petty officer seaman(ASW) on 31st of Jan 2007 and also served my last posting in 1,j&k nuncc Srinagar as PI staff. Now I am a teacher in J & K School Education Department where naval NCC(JD) is functioning and I am the care taker for two years. My educational Qualification is graduation.
    Board for ANO selected me for commission but required to go for PRCN course for getting Commission at Seamanship School Kochi. Do I don’t deserve direct commission for JD ANO at par with NCC ‘C’ certificate holders by Discretionary powers at the disposal of concerning authority?

    Dear Sir,

    Reference your weekly Digest Nov 14 regarding Application for ESM dependant card.
    2. It may please be noted that the Scanned copy of the application is of very bad quality.
    It reminds of the old saying in Navy – Duty Watch Job’
    3. Hope a better quality of application form is circulated in future.

    as it appears the ESM dependent card application copy attached is for Delhi/INS India. PLease clarify where do officers say from Mumbai submit the same and who will issue it.

      This form is common for both officers and sailors. Only difference is that the attestation authority is different for officers and sailors, based on where the records are maintained. The same application form can be filled up by all retired personnel across the country. Name of the nearest depot ship is to be indicated in place of INS India on left bottom of the application. Officers are to forward the application to IHQ of MOD(Navy)/DOP(OA & R) and sailors to forward the application to CABS for verification of details. After verification, the concerned agency will forward the application to the unit indicated for issue of the Dependent Card.
