1950 or 1951? That's the vital question for Gen. V.K. Singh

The Supreme Court will hear Friday the Indian Army chief, Gen. V.K. Singh's petition to correct his year of birth from 1950 to 1951. He says it's a matter of honour for him and not a question of the extra 10 months he will serve if the correction is made.

* 1965: Teenager V.K. Singh's UPSC form for the National Defence Academy examination mentions 1950 as his year of birth.

* 2008: Age records go to Cabinet Committee on Appointments for his promotion to Army Commander; Prior to that, the Military Secretary warns of disciplinary action if 1950 not accepted as year of birth; Singh agrees on 1950 in writing.

* Jan 2010: Appointed as Indian Army chief based on 1950 as year of birth; retirement set for May 2012.
