Public Relation exercise to downsize neglect of ESM

MoD Signs MoU With DD Produce Programmes on Ex-Servicemen
Monday, July 05, 2010
The Ministry of Defence signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) here today with Doordarshan to produce programmes of various genres on different facets of Ex-Servicemen’s (ESM) lives. The programmes will also include the role played by the ESM in nation building and the efforts being made by the Government for their welfare and resettlement over the years.

The MoU was signed by Smt Neelam Nath, Secretary, Department of Ex-Servicemen Welfare (ESW), Ministry of Defence and Smt Aruna Sharma, Director General, Doordarshan.

Television viewers across the country will now be able to experience the real life stories of the ESM and the contributions made by them in nation-building. The infotainment programmes will also project the resettlement and various welfare measures of the government.

There are nearly 27 lakhs Ex-Servicemen including over five lakh widows. This figure swells by an average of about 50,000 ESM who are released from the Armed Forces every year. The Directorate General of Resettlement (DGR), an Inter-Services Organisation under the Ministry of Defence, runs various resettlement and welfare schemes for the benefit of the vast ESM workforce in the country. Over 50 thousand ESM were gainfully re-employed by the DGR last year alone. PK/RAJ
