Chennai: They guarded the borders during their tenure in the army. Soon ex-servicemen will be lending a helping hand to the Tamil Nadu Electricity Board (TNEB) to crack down on power theft in the state.
Captain M David, in-charge of Tamil Nadu ex-servicemen helpline in Fort St George, said former army personnel will only be too happy to help. “Most of them serve as sentries in front of houses or offices. This has brought their morale down. But such a task will motivate them,” said David.
