Parents of martyrs will receive “Veer Mata” and “Veer Pita” identity cards from Rajasthan’s Department of Sainik Welfare, according to officials on Thursday. The decision was taken by Governor Kalraj Mishra at the Raj Bhavan in Jaipur at a meeting of the Sainik Kalyan Board.
Governor also ordered officials to effectively and timely implement various schemes for the welfare of ex-servicemen and their families. Also, the procedure involved in naming schools or public places after martyrs and gallantry awardee winners will be simplified.
He said the families of martyrs and ex-servicemen should get due respect in society and everyone should work together to solve the social, family and economic problems of the dependents of the martyrs.
“On the initiative of Governor Kalraj Mishra, the Sainik Kalyan department will now issue ‘Veer Mata’ identity card to the martyr’s mother and ‘Veer Pita’ to the martyr’s father. Similarly, simplification will be done in the policy of naming schools or public places after the names of martyred soldiers and gallantry awarded soldiers,” a release said.
