GREAT INJUSTICE METED OUT TO A TS.NK.
Veteran Thirupathy with his articial limb on his hand.
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.
