  1. Is there any monetary benefit to ex-war veterans PBOR of Indo-Pak War-1971 from Union Government who served more than 5 years of service ?

  2. Sir, we would like to pay attention towards esm & thair depends. It is everybody knows that parents,son, daughters are dependent asper various rules. It is our request that after 25 years of age of the children automatically ceased to be dependent,but now only the time that being old aged esm they actually depends on there son/daughters or grandson/daughters for there day today works.
    Since an esm can be allowed to go to mi/mh/csds with any unknown rikshaw or auto driver but esm son daughters are often being questioned to go with them as they are no more dependent after the age of 25
    years .So it is very humble request that a I’d of any type may be made available to the every son/daughter,grand son/ daughters to go with them for the help as senior citizens esm need at that time. This I’d can be a book like or any individual I cards issued on payments. This could be noted on that l/card is valid only accompanied with the particular ex service man. This can be great help to old n old ex service man & the families.
    With regards,
