He is actively engaged in global efforts towards reforms in Military Justice.
Navdeep has been a national service volunteer-reservist with the Territorial Army in the past. The Territorial Army is a unique force of volunteers, who, while carrying on with their civil vocations, wear uniform for a few days in a year during their spare time in peace so that they can bear arms for the nation’s defence during war and national emergencies. He has voluntarily served in counterinsurgency and operational areas during High Court vacations and has been decorated with a record number of ten Commendations by the Army & the Air Force.
Besides civil and military service matters, he has enthusiastically worked in the fields of rights of disabled soldiers, military widows & kin and also for military and civil pensioners. He has also worked for the welfare of World War II veterans and for protection of rights, privileges, and status of the military community. He strongly advocates judicial independence and freeing Tribunals and quasi-judicial bodies from the tacit control of the executive.
Navdeep was also a member of a Committee of Experts constituted by the then Defence Minister without remuneration to look into measures to reduce litigation in service and pension matters involving the Ministry of Defence and to suggest steps to improve upon the system of redressal of grievances.
This is his fourth book.
