0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


Defence family pensioners get 45% of the actual pension of the deceased pensioner many of these pensioners live on rent which is almost 40% of their pension amount in addition to their daily medical expenses and house running expenses a many of them have dependent children or grand children staying with them whose education costs are also borne by the family pensioner. THE GALLANTRY AWARD WINNERS ARE EXEMPT FROM INCOME TAX...IWANT TO ASK THE GOVT. HOW DO THEY JUDGE THAT A SOLDIER WHO FOUGHT THREE WARS AND IS STILL ALIVE NOT A HERO. DID HE FIGHT LESS ..ARE KARGIL WAR SURRVIVORS LESS BRAVE THAN THE ONE WHO DIED IN THE BATTLE.ARE THE ARMYMEN PATROLLING AND SECURING THE BORDERS OR SERVING IN HIGH ALTITUDES LIKE SIACHEN , AKSAICHIN OR DOKLAM LESS BRAVE THAN THE ONES WHO DIE DOING THIS... WHY THIS DISCRIMINATION .There exists a medical plan ECHS for retired defence personell and deoendents in .The echs facility is more than fifty kms away in numerous of places in India and the regular commute for check up costs a lot of money especially if the pensioner is bedridden or very sick.. and for better treatment the pensioner is forced to used the nearest army hospital for treatment which cld be around 250 to 500 kms away...the empannelled hospitals are to be used only if treatment at the nearest army hospital is unavailable.this is not the case for( IAS AND IPS THEY MERRILY WALK INTO THE NEAREST EMPANNELLED HOSPITAL FOR CASHLESS TREATMENT UNDER CGHS)..all this cost a lot of money and it is absolutely criminal to charge defence family pensioners income tax. Charging income tax is like  extortion for defence family pensioners as the pension recieved is barely able to keep body and soul together.We must understand that the family of a defence personell goes through hundred times tougher and difficult life than any other central government employ..in terms of transfers to any corner of India every three years, living in constant fear of terrorist attacks in areas like kashmir and northeast.constant fear of losing serving member in line of duty.. Childrens education suffering the most  with only kendriya vidayalyas which are many a times run in makeshift buildings, studying in a good college always means staying in a boarding house..which is unaffordable at current levels of inflation..many family pensioners have college going dependents.

A DEFENCE EMPLOYEE ENROLLS HIMSELF TO SERVE THE NATION AT THE PERIL OF HIS LIFE AND ONLY EXPECTS THAT AFTER HE HAS DONE SERVING THE NATION ..THE NATION TAKES CARE OF HIM AND HISFAMILY WITH RESPECT FOR THE SACRIFICES HE AND HIS FAMILY HAVE MADE.
