ANOMALY IN FAMILY PENSION OF A WIDOW OF A WAR INJURED SOLDIER.






 SEP.VM.KANDAN  COMPLAINING  TO OUR LIAISON  OFFICER 
SGT.S.KANTHIAH  REGARDING  NON REVISON OF HIS  PENSION
 IN JUNE  2010 AT OUR TRUST OFFICE.  ALAS, NOW HE IS NO MORE.




PLIGHT OF A WIDOWS OF WAR WOUNDED SOLDIER.

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

One Sepoy Vanumamali 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. PPO,Nos; D/1683/1964, D/742/1972,, D/BC/6033/2002 AND
D/ BC/ IP/10723/2007.

His   monthly Eligible pension:.
Service Element …………………………….. 5644.00  w.e.f 24-9-2012
( Taken as full service of 20Yrs)
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 Rs1275/ and applicable DA.   As on date she is eligible for  BP  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. A sudden reduction of pension from 31204 to 6650/-.

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.
At least the Service element of the veteran at the time of death  may be fixed as basic pension for the widow.

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.   At least the Qualifying Service is to be taken  as full service  for determining the family pension for War injury pensioners.

Where and how these widows, mostly illiterate   will go and submit / express their grievances.

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