It's almost sixty years since Indian independence and the division of Gurkha regiments between India and Great Britain. Gorkha regiments in the Indian army are flourishing, each of the original regiments plus one, 11GR reformed following independence, have, I believe, four Bns. Incredible to think that's almost as many infantrymen as the British army has in total! Are (Indian) Gorkhas paid at the same rate as India soldiers unlike, apparently, the disparity between their (Brit) Gurkha contemporaries and British soldiers? Do Gorkhas have the automatic right to reside in India on retirement/discharge (I'm not referring to the large Gorkha community resident in India who are Indian citizens)? Do their pensions compare to Indian soldier's pensions? If not is there the same furor in India among the serving and retired Gorkha community over the percieved inequity? Are Gurkhas/Gorkhas made aware of their terms and conditions of service on enlistment?
