Pension Mela Helps Veterans and Widows

Dear All,
IESM members in Tirunelveli have conducted a Pension mela with the help of ESM helpline Chennai. It has proved to be helpful to many veterans. This could be repeated in all districts of India to help veterans to find their actual entitlements. Kindly come forward and arrange similar melas. I congratulate Sgt Kondiah and team for such an informative mela.

Dear Sir,
We have conducted a Pension Mela in our District in cooperation with ESM Help Line Centre Chennai. There was good attendance, participation. The Help Line centre came with Mobile Suvigya programe so that the Entitlement pension was infromed on the spot. The discrepancies were noticed on the spot by our Trust and guided them for the remedial action.
Please visit our both the blogs www, and
We conducted the Mela at 5 places, Tirunelveli CSD Canteen, Srivilliputur
Canteen, Tenkasi, Kadayam and Radhapurm. This mela has created an awareness among the veterans to know their own entitled pension. Particularly the Family pensioners. There were many short payments, like Special family pensioners getting ordinary pension, JCOs widows getting Sepoys pension. Now we are receiving lot of feedback to hold such melas in regular intervals. It is also heard from many veterans that the problems of ESMs have come to light after the formation of IESM.
We have watched the TV programe on IBN CNN, it is really wonderful, the widow pensioners are given more attention. Thank you Sir.
We sincerely thank you and our organisation for untiring efforts to improve in all the areas of ESM problems, latest being the Hony Officers.
Thank you.
With best regards
Yours Sincerely,
Exwel Trust, Tirunelveli-Dist TN
