GURKHA TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE
Gurkha TACOS is a complex subject and few fully understand the specifics of how these have evolved over time since the inception of the Tri Partite Agreement in 1947.
It is important that we, the Gurkha Family, understand our own TACOS and that we are able to explain them to others. They are often misquoted, taken out of context or only half understood leading to a one-sided view.
These are UK Government TACOS. With the Ministry of Defence leading but other Government Departments also responsible for their own areas such as pensions and immigration, these are policies of State.
The Army Secretariat, who are the lead for Gurkha TACOS and have previous experience as the Gurkha Secretariat, has produced a series of Fact Sheets which lay out the background to a range of TACOS. These are accompanied by Nagri translations.
I offer you these as reference material and an opportunity to correct misunderstandings that may exist more widely.
They are accurate as at October 2016 and include the recent European Court of Human Rights Ruling. They do not yet include the work that the Army Secretariat is conducting in assessing the implication of the 7th Indian Pay Commission.
The Fact Sheets are held on the Ministry of Defence website at: http://www.army.mod.uk/gurkhas/27835.aspx
