As expected, it generated huge debate with people calling me names (Comments ranged from "You have done it to please your contacts in the Army," to "Wonderful article on AFT judgement," and from "Your research is sub-optimal. You have fathered someone else's line," to "I don't think any other journalist could have put it in more simple and understandable terms. Once again @nitingokhale to the rescue").
Some comments are available below the first piece.

Only one observation in addition to what I have written: In commenting upon the merits and demerits of the case, most people are either unaware of or have chosen to ignore the fact that the those who implemented the "Command Exit Model," were bound by the conditions laid down by the AV Singh Committee. The first 750 vacancies were allotted in accordance with the old pro-rata system but in implementing the 2nd tranche, the Army HQ had no choice but to implement the Command Exit Model. But read on. And keep the comments coming.
