OUR TRUST HELPED A SHAURYA CHAKRA RECIPIENT
Our Trust members made a visit to the residence of one Shaurya Chakra Gallantry award recipient .
To our knowledge, this is the only person in receipt of Shaurya Chakra living in our Area.
Name: C.Ramamoorthy Rank: Executive Engineer –(Civil)
No: Ex.GO-583 N - GREF. Discharged in November 1985.
On going through his pension and other papers, we noticed that he was a Recipient of Shaurya Chakra Gallantry award. He was being paid the monetary allowance of un-revised rate of Rs.1500/- The Enhanced Rate is Rs.3000/- with effect from 31-3-2011 as per CDA circular 9 dated 30-3-2011.
We reported the discrepancy to the PDA, IOB Tirunelveli. The Manager was kind enough to accept our finding and promised to revise allowance and pay the arrears amounting to Rs.39000/-to the 77 yrs old Gallantry award winner at an early date..
Mr.C.Ramamoorthy and his wife were very happy and thanked us for such a help that too on their door step. They also expressed their view that but for the finding of this discrepancy by the Trust, this would have gone unnoticed. The Trust members briefed other benefits available to a Gallantry award winner.
Our Trust is also happy in helping a Gallantry award winner..
