CARE AND PRIORITY TO WAR WOUNDED/BATTLE CASUALITY VETERANS

 

1. War wounded and battle casualties form a very~distinguished class of
veterans. Owing to their special disposition, they have rightfully earned
certain privileges attributable to their Status and disability. 
2. Registered bodies like the Disabled War Veterans (India) Regd and the
Rehabilitation Council of India have these veterans as members. The
President of the Disabled War Veterans (India) has given a valuable input
that majority of our AFMS hospitals are not “War Veteran/ Battle casualty
friendly”. 
3. The DGAFMS has desired that this input should serve as a catalyst for
introspection, assimilation and action to achieve standards, to arrive to
an environment which displays our concern for this special class of
veterans.

Establishments adopt the following modalities:- 
(a) Special earmarked counters/ outlets /queues for War.wounded/Battle
causality veterans in OPDs, Dispensaries etc. 
(b) In case special counters / outlets /queues are not possible due to
procedural technical constraints, the war wounded/battle casualty veterans
will be seen out of turn. Appropriate signage’s to this effect are required
to be displayed prominently 
5. Besides implementation of the above modalities, extension of extreme
courteousness and empathy to all disabled and veterans must be ensured in
letter and spirit.
