Special Correspondent

CHANDIGARH: Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Wednesday suggested that widows of ex-Servicemen, who had also served the State Government’s Civil Service after retirement, should be allowed to receive the military pension as well as the State Government’s civil pension.
Speaking at a meeting of the Kendriya Sainik Board in New Delhi chaired by Union Defence Minister A. K. Antony, Mr. Hooda said it was necessary to give them this incentive keeping in view the cost of living.
According to an official release here, Mr. Hooda said that in case of death occurring during action in war or such engagements which are specifically notified by the Defence Ministry as during the Kargil war, an ex-gratia grant of Rs.10 lakh was given but otherwise ex-gratia was given at the rate of Rs.5 lakh.
He, therefore, suggested that no distinction be made in the quantum of ex-gratia payment given to Servicemen killed in an officially declared war or in action against militants.
He also called for a fresh look at the pension benefits of ex-Servicemen who retired prior to January 1, 1986.
The Chief Minister said the State Government had decided to enhance financial assistance being given at the time of marriage of orphan daughter of ex-Servicemen from Rs.21,000 to 51,000 and it was already providing many other incentives and facilities to the serving personnel, ex-Servicemen, war widows and their dependents.
Mr. Hooda said the Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) would develop Defence Colonies in Rohtak, Jhajjar, Rewari, Hisar, Jind, Narnaul, Bahadurgarh, Karnal and Dadri exclusively for ex-Servicemen, widows of ex-Servicemen and serving defence personnel.

, by indianmilitaryveterans



World War II veteran


Special benefits can be paid to certain World War II veterans. These include veterans who served in the active  war. The special veterans benefits are payable for months in which qualified veterans live in India.


The World War II veterans are very old aged and limited persons are left in these days. The veterans were do their hard work in those days. They will not get any pension or Financial benifits from central Government till date.


Tamilnadu Government is helping to them, as a financial benifits @ Rs 1000/- pm for Veterans & Rs 700/- for widows. This amount not enough to pull the daily routine of their life, due to the cost of living is very high.


In this connection ARMED FORCES TRIBUNAL, REGIONAL BENCH, KOCHI  gave a judgement that "The Union of India shall consider whether some financial assistance so as to enable them to lead
a respectable life can be afforded to them." (O.A.No.16 of 2010)


For the above fact, the Central/State Governments is look in to the matter seriously and give some extend of financial help to the old aged World War II Veterans.


All Ex Servicemen Associations are requested to give their hands to the old aged veterans for getting the financial help from central/state Governments.
