SALEM: The Ex-Servicemen Welfare office will provide educational assistance to the children of servicemen who went missing or died during the counter insurgency operations. The children of those who sustained permanent disabilities during such operations are also eligible for the assistance.
Special camps would be conducted for enrolling new members under the Tamil Nadu Agricultural Labourers and Farmers (Social Security and welfare) scheme in all the villages in the district.
Agricultural labourers and farmers, who are yet to enrol as members under the scheme, can do so at these special camps.
They would be given new identity cards to receive benefits under the scheme.
