Adequate gratitude for the martyrs.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Dear Sir/Madam,

Recently Our under 19 Cricket team has won World Cup Championship, for which coach has been awarded prize of Rs. 50 Lacs and all the players have been awarded Rs. 30 Lacs. 

Ofcourse it's not at all bad to reward and recognize talent. But it is very hurting to know that when a soldier or officer of Indian military, who is responsible for the security of the country gets martyr, Indian government pays him compensation ( I object to the term, it should be called gratitude) of Rs. 10-15 lacs. Recently Maharashtra government has increased it from 20 to 25 lacs.

This is apart from the insurance amount of approximately similar amounts for which the premiums are paid by them from their salaries.

I hereby request Indian Government to not to charge for insurance cover of defense people, instead Government should take term insurance group cover of all the defence personnels, whatever being the rank, for Rs. 1 crore each. This would be a gratitude for the martyrs. It will also boost the moral of the youth joining army that in case of his death while serving the country, his family would not be suffering financially.

Please consider my petition in the interest of nation.

Thanks and Regards,
