    जब किसीको ACP 1 मिला हो तो उन्हे Nb Sub का pension मिलता है यानी कि वह हावलदार नही बल्की Nb Sub के बराबर हुआ |
    ऐसे मे उनको Hav ACP 1 क्यू कहते है ? उन्हे तो Nb Sub ACP 1 कहना चाहिए ! जैसे कि एक Honr’y Nb Sub को भी Hav नही बल्की Nb Sub ही कहते है !

  11. Dear Sir
    My father Sh SR Sharma ser No. 6325016A EX Hav is a veteran who got retired from corps of signals in Sep 1989 after completing 24 years of colour service.
    Now from your esteems I want your kind intrusion and justification in making me and my father aware of the considerable fact whether he would be awarded with MACP as equivalent to those Havildars of Indian Army who retired on or after 2006 consequent to gain the financial and structural benefits to his counterparts .
    I request you to throw some light for benefit of those who sweat and bled throuh out their life across the territorial fronts for the country without fail.
    I request you to kindly apprise and update and provide with the benefit of MACP if possible.
    Thanks and regards.
    Yours sincerely
