    As already requested in these column today . The cut off date of the old card should be extended till all the registered applicants issued with new card in order to save echs veterans unnecessary and uncalled far harassment for going from one place to other for issue validated and revalidated slips to be issued from time to time. It will also save lot of time and efforts by staff to deal with this unprecedented situation AS there seems to be huge backlog. EX/ SGT GIAN CHAND

  • Gian Chand 4 years ago

    From 1st september, 2018 use of old 16kb smart health card is going to be discontinued. Issue of health card is the responsibility of ECHS organisation and with out making alternate arrangment for fore suspension of present card is not only injustice but also voilation of right granted to the ex-servicemen. This order if put on the scale of justice is laiable to be modified to the extent of fixithe the cut off date. Concerned authorities should take a note of thisanti exservicemen measure and modify the cut off date till all registered cards are delivered to concerned station HQrs.
