Army plans to have old age homes for ex-servicemen
Army has planned to run homes for elderly ex-servicemen, who do not have anyone to look after them in their old age. As per this plan, old age homes would be opened in every Command.
On an experimental basis, the first such old age home is being set near Chandigarh in Panchkula.
This will not be a free service as it is not possible for Army to run such a facility for free. Thus, the ex-servicemen who wished to live in these old-age homes could use their pensions to pay for the services.
