Hi guys, need your help here.
I didnt go for any of my RT sessions after I failed my IPPT last year. I have to report to CMPB next month to answer the charge. Any idea what to expect and what punishments I may get? This is my first time. Kinda stupid not to attend RT but yeah, was busy and all. What excuses should I use? Thanks a lot guys.
What are the disciplinary actions?
For our common understanding, the meanings of the names are defined as follows:
i. IPPT Defaulters
These are NSmen who have failed to make any attempt in IPPT throughout the 9 mth IPPT window and did not qualify for any exemptions.
ii. RT Defaulters
These are NSmen who have failed to complete 20 sessions of RT within the last 3 months of their birthday window.
Disciplinary actions will be taken against the defaulters.
(A) Graduated Scale of
The appropriate punishment on a graduated scale will be meted out by the Disciplinary Officers (DOs) depending on the NSman’s mitigating pleas, attitude, service records, previous convictions and performance for past IPPTs/RTs.
For recalcitrant defaulters, it may mean heftier fines, custodial sentences or court martial. In the event if the NSman is unable to pay the fine, the DO may order detention in default of payment within reasonable time based on prevailing guidelines. The detention may take effect on any date and shall be terminated on payment of fine.
(B) Central Defaulters Management Branch (CDMB)
CDMB was set up as a tri-service shared services structure within the NSmen Services Centre (NSSC) to manage all IPPT/RT defaulter offenders on behalf of their parent NS units. The NS Commanders maintain the prerogative to summary trial the NSmen if they wish to do so. Under such circumstances, CDMB will provide the use of its premises and facilities to conduct the Summary Trial.
thanks man. anyone of you experienced this before? care to share?
Let said for example, if you are busy due to work and there is an RT training for you, your employer must released you early for you to attend your session, otherwise they might be in the trouble with the law like enlishment act, so you cannot use any excuse from your company not to attend the session. Even if you cannot make it, you can still apply for deferment depend if your reason is accepted : http://www.ns.sg/cs/content/eServices/common/IPPT (ippt)/FAQs/Remedial Training.html
