The proposed amendments address major concerns, which emerged during a deliberation on the draft Bill by the Standing Committee of Parliament on Defence on December 27, 2005.

These are expected to make the adjudication by the Tribunal more effective, transparent and equitable, thereby making it more acceptable to service personnel in general.

The Armed Forces Tribunal Bill, 2005 was introduced in the Rajya Sabha on December 20, 2005

The Bill seeks to establish an Armed Forces Tribunal to adjudicate on disputes relating to service matters and appeals arising out of verdicts of courts-martial of members of the Army, Navy and the Air Force. (ANI)
