Sainik Welfare- e-Governance initiatives Thursday, 16 September 2010 12:17
The Department interacts with the 14 district offices (Zila Sainik Welfare Offices) and the Directorate office concentrating on Pension emoluments, Banking transactions, World war veteran's pension scheme, application processing for widows grievances, awards, service details of ex-service men & Service persons, flag distribution processing in connection with Armed forces Flag day etc.
In line with the directions from the Secretary- Kendriya Sainik Board, Department of Sainik Welfare, GOI, all the States should be equipped with Internet facilities for easier and faster communications amongst the Rajya Sainik Board and the Zila sainik boards. The department have to equip its office and 14 Zila Sainik Boards with internet facilities and subsequently with main server to revitalize the Sainik Board organizations.
Comment: Retired Defence Personnel are the most neglected by the MOD and the "Center- State" Sponsored Sainik Boards. The offices function from dingy outlets with cobwebbed roofs and array of dusty files. No information is ever retrievable from the file handling babus. They are generally manned by corrupt personnel selected by the state Governments to siphon off funds. Can automation HELP? We hope so! The indentity card for Soldiers issued by the Zila Board is itself a testimony to its set standard, mission and proficiency.
