The Indian Air Force is set to confer the honorary rank of a Group Captain on Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar in recognition of his outstanding achievements as a sportsperson. Traditionally, honorary ranks in the Air Force have been given to outstanding achievers. Past recipients include J R D Tata and Vijayapat Singhania who were both awarded the honorary ranks of Air Commodore. Tendulkar, however, would have no official responsibilities with the IAF. Will conferring Sachin with an IAF honorary rank inspire the country's youth to join the forces?
