EXWEL TRUST REACHING ONE MORE INTERIOR VILLAGE.
On our intensive drive to find out and ensure that our pensioners are getting their correct rate of pension, we came to know that a Widow pensioner from a interior village was getting less pension than her entitlement.
Name : Smt.Mariammal W/O Late V.Abraham Rank: Sepoy (CFN) No: ME 14589
PPO.No: F/1796/1962. PDA: Canara Bank, Srivaikuntam, Tuticorin-Dist. Tamil Nadu.
Our Chief Liaison Officer Sgt.S.Kanthiah paid a visit to that village called East-Tirupuliangudi and identified the pensioner Smt.Mariammal. She is 86 years old, bed ridden, looked after by her Grand son Abraham in that village.
She was taken aback by our visit and was pleased to converse with our Liaison officer. On verifying the available records, it was confirmed that she was sanctioned with Special Family pension, but she was not aware, and nobody to tell her or the Bank. Our Liaison officer explained in detail and assured her that her case will be taken up with concerned Record office and CDA .
The bed ridden widow was so happy in recollecting her past life and shed tears of joy and thanked all the Trust members for their sincere , valuable service to the Exservicemen community.
Dear veteran brothers, please identify such poor widows and try to help them in their fag end of life to get their entitled pension. We are repeatedly appealing our veterans in this regards.
