INCORRECT USAGE OF TERM ‘PBOR'

Based on the recommendations of the Chief of Staff Committee, Raksha Mantri (MOD) has approved the proposal that henceforth "Ex-Servicemen" will be addressed as "Armed Forces Veterans".

Army HQ has issued a letter
 on Monday, 7th Feb 2011 ordering discontinuation the use of the word “PBOR”.

The abbreviation/acronym 'PBOR' does not exist in the 'Staff Duties in Fd Appx 'C' - Abbreviation 2006'. However, over a period of time incorrect usage of this term PBOR has become a practice. It is seen and reported by a Comd HQ that the acronym 'PBOR' is being wrongly used in respect of 'JCOs and ORs'.

The issue has been considered at the IHQ of MoD(Army). It has been decided that the acronym 'PBOR' will not be used, instead 'JCOs and ORs' is to be used in all the letters/communications.

The above instructions may be disseminated to the effect for compliance.
