The Statesman (India)

NEW DELHI (The Statesman/ANN)- Since the orders slashing the frills in the Army’s lifestyle emanated from the Chief’s office and not the defence ministry, there is likely to be little of the open resentment provoked by the waiving of most of the restrictions on civilian traffic in the Cantonments.
