Government approves increase in vacancies for honorary commission in defence forces

New Delhi, Honorary Commission is granted to serving Junior Commissioned Officers (JCOs) on Independence Day and Republic Day in their last year of service as recognition of their exemplary service and contribution in the Armed Forces. 

It may be noted here that the ratio for grant of Honorary Commission since 1984 has been 12:1000 for Honorary Lieutenants and proportionate vacancies for Honorary Captains. 

Acknowledging the contribution of JCOs,  the ratio has now been revised to 15:1000 for Honorary Lieutenants. This will provide enhanced opportunities to JCOs to become Honorary Commissioned Officers (HCOs) prior to their superannuation.
