I am happy to announce that under the directions of the COAS a Veterans Welfare Cell has been created at the Army Headquarters. It is headed by a retired Brigadier and will act as a single-point contact for all the veterans problems. Plans are afoot to give it a toll free telephone number that can be contacted round the clock by any veteran. This number will be widely publicized when allotted. Through the aegis of this Cell, the IESM plans to have institutionalized periodic interaction with various veteran-related departments.
There have been numerous complaints from veterans regarding lack of response from PCDA Allahabad on our pension problems. In this connection a letter dated 24 Feb 2011 written to the PCDA is as above for information of the environment.
