Fourth veteran’s day was observed at the Golden Katar Division, Ahmedabad on
15 Jan 2020 Wednesday. Major General Dinesh Shrivastava, General Officer Commanding of Golden Katar Division, Officers, JCOs, Jawans and Veterans were present during the ceremony.
The ceremony began by paying homage to the martyrs with the Wreath Laying by veterans & GOC of Golden Katar Division. The veterans interacted with the serving officers, JCOs, Jawans and shared their experiences. They were also briefed about new policies and welfare schemes available for ex-servicemen, martyrs and their families.
The main objective of the Veterans Day is to felicitate our veterans and solve the problems that they face after retirement. Notably, the year 2019 was declared as the year of “Next of Kin” by the Indian Army. Under this initiative, a number of activities were conducted by the Golden Katar Division for reaching out to the next of kin of
Ex-servicemen & martyrs and resolving their grievances. A job fair was also organised for Ex-servicemen at Ahmedabad in the month of Aug 2019 as a part of the welfare scheme.
