There are 100s of such stories @sharrmasumann ji.

Foggies and some veteran offrs whose kins are in forces manages to get admitted in service hospitals but JCOs/Jawans and upright veteran offrs are denied admission even in emergency.

Empanelled hospitals are limited and often deny admission view previous bills not cleared by ECHS.

Favourtism in OPD facilities where medicines are made available as per your relation and references made to OIC who is always a "fuse bulb" is not very uncommon in ECHS...
On one hand we have news of corruption where ECHS beneficiaries are admitted in empanelled hospitals without physically going there on the instance of "fuse bulbs".
Other hand tedious procedure made to get admitted for cashless treatment sucks.....
You said it rightly Ma'am the serving officer of @adgpi running the scheme are to blame.

Platoons of serving offrs are engaged in veterans welfare duties doing only lip work and desk jobs like this and indulged in corruption then @adgpi says we hv shortage of offrs?
There is dept of EXSM under @DefenceMinIndia. Why the scheme is not run by them?

Whole ECHS scheme is converted into "GANGA of CORRUPTION" where retired offrs are employed as OI/C even if they are NON medico and thereafter the game is known to all.....
This is loot of one time contribution plus FMA (1000/- PM per member) and Funds released by Govt. by none other than our own sitting and running the scheme. Whom to blame?

It's high time we should close the scheme or atleast make is volunteer not compulsory....
Blood boils whenever I hear the news of ECHS apathy towards any veteran.

The scheme was envisaged to provide good health in old age not harassment and discrimination as per RANK.

I request @rajnathsingh ji to make it volunteer please.......
It's compulsory and hence it is a loot where contribution and monthly FMA is looted or spending the same discriminatory on some foggies etc only.

Upright offrs/ Jawans gets the woes and harassment only.

They feel cheated and crying in emergency situations.

I congratulate you dear @RahulGandhi for speaking about diff food standards of offrs and Jawans.

You rightly said that while pay is linked to Rank not diet.

Your point can be substantiated visiting any offr Mess vis a vis Langar of any Army unit near your house.

Discrimination dear @RahulGandhi do not stop here only.

Just few e.g. are briefly given below👇

1. Food for is free for both but no difference in quality and standard must be there as you said.

However it exists and whatever excuse any 'Fuse bulb' give it's colonial mindset.
2. Military service pay is for military hardship on the field. All brave same tough conditions yet the allowance is paid as per RANK, most disturbing is that MNS non combat nurses are paid more than combat JCOs/Jawans view policy Rank centeric...
