Marvelous Foreign Assignments

The MNCs have a method for enticing their specialists to work more with the price tag of an outside task. Though in the military we send Officers with discretionary visas to Foreign Countries as Defense Attaches in the Embassy as a peace posting. We give them a chance to relax really.


Our officers even go to do Masters in Reputed Defense Colleges. The Navy sends each year a handful of Officers to the Royal War College, London, US Marine Staff College, and so forth. The sort of offices and extravagance these officers get in those nations are unmatched.


Degree for Higher Education

On the off chance that you are a studious individual, then this is the place for you to be.

First Priority Physical Fitness

Today nobody thinks before joining an organization in these lines – whether the activity will enable me to be fit, play a game, do some physical activities or enjoy for some fun time in physical movement/experience action. However, work in the military is about what I have said in the past line. Your physical wellness is foremost to us. You can guarantee yourself a more beneficial way of life in this place.


Extraordinary Post Retirement Options

On retirement, aside from the handsome sum that you will get, you will get an annuity for the duration of your life. Today an officer with 22 long periods of administration after retirement will get benefits of approx. Rs.30,000 every month. Indeed, even after retirement from your experience and information base, the Officers of the Armed Forces are the most looked for after warring for positions of authority in large organizations. The military supports each officer into a pioneer who turns into his second nature. Henceforth a second innings post-retirement is exceptionally plausible and similarly appealing.
