Apr 8, 2013 16:14 IST

Bikram Singh, the Chief of Army Staff on 7 April 2013 announced that the Army had prepared a new scheme, under which an old-age home will be opened in every command. The scheme is designed for providing a home to elderly ex-servicemen, who have no one to look after them during their old age.

At present, the army is running an old age home on experiment basis near Chandigarh in Panchkula.

About the Scheme
• Under the proposed scheme, the ex-servicemen willing to avail the services of the old-age homes will have to pay for the same from their pensions, as the services offered under the scheme are not free.
