EXWEL TRUST DOES WONDERS AT TIRUNELVELI
The Ex-servicemen and Social Welfare Trust at Tirunelveli, which is concentrating on payment of correct pension to the Defence pensioners is doing a great service to aged pensioners. Here is one case which the Trust members have found out recently and enabled one 91 years old Widow to get an arrears of Rs.1,50,792/-. At last and not the least, but for the timely intervention of the Exwel Trust Tirunelveli, a huge amount would have gone away unnoticed and unclaimed.
Smt.Grace Rajam Rhenius, W/O (Late) Major F.S.Rhenius,( No.IC 11337) aged 91, was traced out by the Trust members to find out whether she is being paid the correct revised pension by the Bank or not.
The Managing Trustee Sgt.R.Chellappa, (Retd.) and Flt.Lt.M.P.Natarajan, (Retd.) the Chief Admin. Officer of the Trust and Sgt.S.Kandiah, (Retd.), the Chief Liaison Officer, took all the pain to locate the house where she was found bedridden due old age. When the Trust members recalled her husbands heroic deeds of those days, Smt.Grace Rajam woke up from the bed immediately with great joy and embraced all the Trust members.
Our main concern was to get her correct family pension at this old age from the Bank. We found that the bank had off course revised her basic pension correctly, but had not paid the Additional Pension for the age of 91 which is 40% more than her present pension.
The Exwel Trust’s Chief Liaison officer Sgt.S.Kandiah (Retd.) gathered all the particulars and contacted the Canara Bank, Tirunelveli Town Branch to pay the arrears of Rs.1,50,792 immediately. The Bank also obliged the request and agreed to pay within a week.
Smt.Grace Rajam and her daughter Dr.Nirmala, were surprised over the visit of the Trust members to their house and were immensely happy to pose for a photograph with the Trust members.
