A very important input on ECHS is appended below.
Very small percentage of veterans are on email.
Kindly do your best to pass on this information to maximum number of veterans and their dependents.
Take a printout and place it on notice boards at all CSD canteens, community centres, officers clubs and other suitable places. Also keep passing the information on phone and by word of mouth.

Subject: TAC - ECHS
A good news for all travelling veterans with in India. They need not take any TAC from the parent polyclinic. I am attaching the Central Org letter No B/49711/AG/ECHS dated 16 dec for your info. Please note that the order is valid for OLD as well as NEW Smart cards.

Re: Circular 449
As per GOI MOD Dept of ESW letter 17(4)/2008(1)/D(Pen/Pol) letter dated 21 May 2009 the Family pension of Lt Col and Equivalent is fixed as Rs 15420. As per the latest Circular 449 family pension for Lt Col and equivalent is fixed as 8760. Why this reduction and the justification for the same? The 60% of max pension of Lt Col is 15420 whereas 8760 is much less. This is a typographical error in the GOI MOD Dept of ESW letter 17(3)/2010/D(Pen/Pol) letter dated 15 Non 2010.
It is requested that the error be corrected on an urgent basis before the PDA act on the same and start recovery process.
