Indian Army observes 2018 as Year of Disabled Soldiers in Line of Duty

To honour soldiers, who have been disabled in line of duty, the Army is observing this year as the Year of Disabled Soldiers in Line of Duty. The Defence Ministry said this in a detailed statement yesterday. 

Our correspondent reports that the primary focus is towards alleviating the sufferings of these soldiers, who have done their duty with utmost dedication to the Nation and have been disabled for the life. 

The endeavour this year is to provide a one-time financial assistance to disabled soldiers who have been boarded out from service on medical grounds and are rendered non-employable due to their medical or physical conditions. 

Army also plans to showcase talent of disabled soldiers by organizing sports and physical activities, cultural events and their art exhibitions. 

The Government is considering proposal of major grant to establish a separate fund for disabled soldiers which can be further enhanced by contributions from individuals, establishments and corporate sector thus facilitating meaningful initiatives.
