      एक शहीद सैनिक के जान की कभी भी क्षतिपूर्ति नहीं हो सकती । फिर भी, शहीद सैनिकों के परिवारों के लिए किया हुआ ये एक छोटा सा प्रयास ।
      A small effort for the families of martyred soldiers:
      Since last 2 years, I have been filing series of RTI applications related to Indian Armed Forces and Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) for ensuring ex-Gratia etc. to families of martyred soldiers or soldiers declared as battle casualty from Central level. Also, filed different grievance applications for giving ex-Gratia to families of martyred soldiers from State level as required. Attached photo copies are just some of the responses received to the different applications.
      During above long process, responses and actions were taken by various departments like Ministry of Defense (Navy), Department of Ex-Servicemen Welfare (DESW) MoD, IHQ of MoD (Army), Air Head Quarters and many Zilla Sainik Welfare Offices and many District Collector offices and also Mantralaya at state level.
      Note:
      The RTI applications were primarily around Indian Armed Forces and Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF).
      1) Indian Armed Forces: This includes below 3 professional uniformed services:
      i] Indian Army,
      ii] Indian Navy, and
      iii] Indian Air Force.
      2) Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF): This includes forces like:
      i] Border Security Force (BSF),
      ii] Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF),
      iii] Central Industrial Security Force (CISF),
      iv] Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP), and
      v] Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB).
      and others.
       
      Hope the world will reach to a civilization level wherein there won’t be any need of violence.
      उम्मीद है कि दुनिया एक दिन सभ्यता (civilization) के उस स्तर तक पहुंच जाएगी, जहां हिंसा या war की कोई आवश्यकता नहीं रह जायेगी ।
