Subject:DATA OF WAR DISABLED/BATTLE CASUALTIES--OTHERS
A few years ago, when we, representing the Disabled War Veterans, requested for certain measures both in regards Pay & Allowances and the initiating of welfare measures for such categories of personnel, to the Parliamentary Commission, we were rather surprised at MOD & Service HQ's indicating to them that they were totally unaware of the number of Battle/War Casualties as no records were maintained.
You are aware that proper statistics and data would help greatly especially when calculating the expense to the ex-chequer to enable any measures getting past the MOD Finance and the decision making process.
With the assistance of the Adjutant General Lt Gen Mukesh Sabharwal and Lt Gen B V Nair, DG DCW, we undertook this gigantic task of obtaining and collating data of such personnel. We are thankful to all the Colonel's of Regiments, Centre Commandants and Record Officers to have delved into their past records and produced the desired data. This Data, duly compiled in 4 Volumes has been handed over to the DG DCW, Md ECHS and Secretary (ESW) for future planning purposes.
However, our task does not end here. The Data of officers is not fully available especially of those serving, those voluntarily retired from service and others.
This is an appeal to all officers who are known to you or see this mail to send me the data in regards themselves in the attached format to enable us to compile the same and forward it to the Authorities. It could then be compared with their own records!!
Those on E Mail could send it to email@example.com and others could post the same to us at B6/6 DLF City, Phase 1, Gurgaon 122002
