Chandigarh to give grant to ex-servicemen with disabilities
Former defence soldiers who suffer from 100% disabilities will be given a rehabilitation grant of Rs five lakhs each by the Chandigarh government. This is an initiative in collaboration with the Infosys Foundation.
Soldiers from Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh who suffered the disability between April 2014, to March 2016, are eligible.
The aim is to enable them to start small ventures such as shops, repair units, computer centers and transportation vans for generating a regular source of income, apart from their pensions.
