A service think tank has revealed that more than half of Indian Army personnel are under severe stress.
A study conducted by the United Service Institution of India (USI) stated that the Indian Army has been losing more personnel every year due to suicides, fratricides, and untoward incidents than in response to any enemy.
The study identifies reasons, including delay and denial of leave, domestic problems, humiliation by seniors, lack of dignity, unreasonable restrictions on the use of mobiles, lack of recreational facilities, conflict with seniors as well as subordinates, health problems, inefficient administrative support, financial problems, lack of transparency in promotions, delay in crediting of financial claims and poor quality of rations.
It is worth mentioning here that 486 Indian troops and police personnel have committed suicide in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir since January 2007. Experts have pointed out that the guilt of killing, arresting, torturing, and committing other atrocities on innocent Kashmiris without any reason also leaves deep impacts on the psychology of the Indian forces’ personnel.
