SUBMISSION OF LIFE CERTIFICATE




                            We had already published about the LIFECERTIFICTE.

Once again we are reminding all the Ex-Servicemen  and Family pensioners .

Our ESM organization the I E SM  has also reminding all the pensioners  a copy is published for the benefit of all..


Dear Sir,
    Tomorrow comes 01 November 2014.
    It is time for each one of you to submit Life Certificate to your pension paying branch. Take time off and submit your life certificate without any loss of time. Do not wait till 30 Nov 2014. The earlier you do it is better.
    One more thing to remember is that you can submit life certificate in any branch of your bank. Seeing the way these banks function with no care or concern to woes of pensiones, they will misplace your life certificate if you submit to any other branch other than from where you are drawing your pension.
    You have to spend some time that too only once a year. So I urge you to take trouble and go to your pension drawing branch and sign it and hand over Life certificate to your dealing clerk in the bank.
    Pl also take your pass book alongwith you.
    Then after a week check in your pension slip(for SBI account holders) whether endorsement is made in it that you have submitted your life certificate. It also shows you the next due date for submission of your Life Certificate i.e. Nov 2015.
    If you are unfortunately a wheel chair bound pensioner, then you can speak to your branch manager to send some one to your home and get your Life Certificate signed by you.
    thanks and regards,
Brig CS Vidyasagar(Retd)

PLIGHT OF WIDOWS OF WAR VETERANS.


Our Chief Liaison Officer Sgt.S.Kanthiah ( Retd) is handing over a copy of the arrears calculation sheet to the War Injury Veteran VM.Kandan- 
The photo was taken on 9-4-2010 when he called on for  correction of his pension.
Now he expired on 29-3-2014.


PLIGHT OF WIDOWS OF WAR WOUNDED SOLDIERS.


Here is a pitiable case of a  widow of  a War wounded  soldier.

One Sepoy Vanumamalai Kandan, ( 8002935) from Pioneer Records  was wounded  during Chinese aggression  in the year 1962. He  lost his right Hand.   He was sanctioned with 100% war injury pension with constant Attended Allowance.  Qualifying Service – 2yrs.
     PPO,No; D/ 742/72,   D/BC/ 6033/2003 and D/BC/IP/10723/2007

His Eligible monthly pension.
Service Element …………………………….              . 5644.00  w.e.f 24-9-2012 (Cir 501) 
War injury Element 100%.................  9200.00   as per CDA cir 456.
                              14844.00
DA at 90%..for 14844……………..       13360.00
Constant Attendance Allowance…       3000.00
  Total monthly pension ………………. 31204.00

Now the  pensioner died on 29-3-2014.

As per Joint notification, D/ JN/ 361/2004,  his wife is sanctioned with the minimum pension of Rs.3500/ -and with DA at 90%  3150  Total of Rs.6650/- per month.

See the difference between 31204  and 6650/-, a difference of  Rs.24554/ - per month.

The poor widow is eligible for this rs.6650 only from 30-2-2014.

Is it not a great INJUSTICE  .  At least , such widows may be sanctioned with Special Family pension  or some other formula by which the widows may be able to adjust  but not this much 400 %  less.  The service element may be fixed as Basic  pension.

All our Ex-servicemen organizations  are requested to view such cases seriously and project to authorities concerned  to remove this Himalayan difference in pension  and help the pitiable conditions of the innocent widows.  
Where and how these widows, mostly illiterate   will go and submit / express their grievances.

·         Our Welfare Trust  hopes  that our sincere appeal all our ESM organizations  may bring some kind of awareness among ourselves to come forward to help the war widows.

We have already represented this to our Army Veteran cell and IESM and DIWAVE  for taking up the matter for higher rate of family pension for such war widows.  

The War widow also has represented to Pioneer Record Office for higher rate of pension..

INJUSTICE TO ONE WAR INJURED SOLDIER.




We had already published this article on 28-11-2012, The Disability element is revised as 50%  (Rs.1755) but  the War injured element is not effected so far. 

We have taken up the case once again with record Office and PCDA, Allahabd for converting the Normal Disability to War injured pension.



Veteran T.Rajaram with our Liaison Officer Sgt.S.kanthiah.He is showing the artificial Leg .

GREAT INJUSTICE TO ONE MORE WAR INJURED PENSIONER.

One Ex.Ts.Nk came to our Trust office and complained that he was not being paid the correct Rate of disability pension.

Name:Tirupathy Rajaram  Rank: Ts.Nk  No: 6462218    Qly.Ser.:15 yrs.
PPO.Nos: S/ 102256/1987 AND S/CORR/4263/2002.
PDA: Central Bank of india, Kovilpatti, Tuticorin –Dist, TN.

On going through the available papers, we noticed that he was wounded while on duty in Proximity to the enemy due to mine blast on 1-3-1980 and it was classified as Battle causality vide part II order  No.73/15/1982

We also came to know that his Right foot Below ankle was amputated and was using artificial limb.

In spite of all the above, he was sanctioned with normal Disability element of 50% as attributable to military service.

He is falling under Category  E of para 4.1 of GOI, MOD letter No. 1 (2)/97/ D (Pen-C) dated 31-1-2001. Hence eligible for a WAR injury pension but being sanctioned with normal disability pension.
 It is a great injustice meted out to a veteran.
The innocent veteran was not aware of his eligibility and drawing his normal disability that  too not properly being paid. Instead of 1755 , he was being paid 1404/-

We have now  taken up the matter with MRC Record office and PCDA for consideration.

The poor veteran  was very much pleased with our findings and action and expressed his sincere gratitude to our Welfare Trust for this timely help.
