Respected Pallam Raju garu,

Kindly spare some time and see the representations placed below
from Major (Retd.) Dr. Rudra Narasimham, Rebbapragada,
Son of Rebbapragada Surya Narayana Murthy, 13-92 Prakasam Nagar, Rajahmundry, East Godavari District, Andhra Pradesh.
Ex MR – 03277K MAJOR AMC/PC
Ex MS -8466 Captain/Lieutenant/Second Lieutenant AMC/SSRC

He participated meritoriously and heroically in Operation Eagle
in the 1971 War and was recommended by his Unit for Award of
VIR CHAKRA Gallantry Award, but in response to his repeated representations he has been told that the case is now time-barred as
it pertains to the year 1971. This is not fair, as he is in no way responsible for the administrative delays in higher echelons of the hierarchy, and I request you to kindly review and have justice done to him even at this
late stage by releasing the AWARD.

Previous Reference:- Government of India Ministry of Defence Letter No. 3533/2009/D( Cer ) dated 2nd/3rd December, 2009.

This Officer retired many years ago but devotion to the Army is still in
his blood, and it will be a matter of satisfaction even at this stage for
him to receive the AWARD which his meritorious and exceptional
services fully justified.

I shall be grateful if this eMail is acknowledged now, followed by
further action as early as possible.

With high regards,

Dr. B V Ramarao, BE (Kakinada), PhD, IRSE (Retd.),

Sir,

1. I would like to introduce myself as son of Shri. Rebbapragada. Suryanarayana Murthy, and a native of Rajahmundry, East Godavari District. I obtained my S.S.L.C. diploma in 1961 from Danavaipeta Municipal High School, Rajahmundry. I was granted Short Service Regular Commission in Army Medical Corps during 1969 and the Service Records held by MPRS(O), Office of the DGAFMS, Ministry of Defence, New Delhi show that I am a permanent resident of Rajahmundry.

2. I would like to submit to you that the Ministry of Defence, Army Headquarters have no institutional capacity or jurisdiction over actions sanctioned and authorized by the Prime Minister, the Prime Minister’s Office, and the Cabinet Secretariat.

3. Army Medical Directorate, Army Headquarters, Ministry of Defence, New Delhi had issued posting orders that directed me to serve on deputation at Headquarters Establishment No.22 C/O 56 APO, Special Frontier Force, Office of the Directorate General of Security, The Cabinet Secretariat, R K Puram, New Delhi with effect from 22-9-1971 to 18-12-1974. I had participated in Operation Eagle under orders that I had received from my superior Officers under the authority sanctioned by the Prime Minister, Prime Minister’s Office, and the Cabinet Secretariat. The service that I had rendered was recognized by my South Column Unit, and the Operational Command of Operation Eagle and I was duly recommended the award of Vir Chakra. Such recommendations given in recognition of  service rendered on deputation could not be rejected by Ministry of Defence/Army Headquarters who have no jurisdictional control over the military operation sanctioned by the Prime Minister, the Chief Executive Officer of Government of India.

 Thanking You,

Yours Faithfully,

Rudra Narasimham, Rebbapragada
