AN AGGRIEVED WAR INJURED VETERAN HELPED.
A pitiable WAR injured veteran called on us for a help for Broad banding of Disability pension.
Name: R.Lakshmanan ( 2562391), Rank: Sepoy QS: 15 yrs 2 months.
WAR Injury During 1971 war ( 16-12-1971).
PPO.No: D/BC/ 1842/1982, D/BC/ CORR/ 0407/2012, AND D/BC/CORR/ 0161/2013.
On interaction , we understood that he was wounded , a Bullet passed through his left side of Chest , and was discharged with a WAR injured pension of 20%.disability.
It is not justified for granting only 20% disability for such a wounded soldier. He was fortunate that the Bullet hit only ½” away from his Heart and escaped from death.
Such a veteran was granted with only 20% disability.
Now , he applied for Broad banding of Disability Element as per CDA cir 429, which was rejected by Record Office for the reason that he was not INVALIDED OUT, but on completion of Terms,
hence not eligible.
see the injury at the back side of chest.
Now as per the latest SUPREME COURT rulings, the Broad Banding is is applicable to
“ Super annuated/ completion of Terms cases also.
As per this information, we have again Representing the case for Broad banding for the War injured veteran to Record Office and Army Veteran Cell for consideration.
The veteran expressed his gratitude for such a help from our welfare Trust.
Our Trust is satisfied in helping a WAR wounded veteran for a genuine cause.
