SEATS FOR MILITARY NURSING SERVICE TO WIDOWS
Zila Sainik Welfare Officer
Sub: Policy – Recommended allotment of seats for Military Nursing Service to Widows; Death Attributable to Military Service.
Qualified widows of soldiers whose “death is attributable to military service” are earmarked, two vacancies for the Short Service Commission(Women) entry scheme by exempting them appearing for written test and directly nominating for Service Selection Board by Government of India. This facility is fully utilized by the widows.
It is recommended that similar provision of four seats be done for Military Nursing Service selection by exempting the above category widows from written test and directly calling them for interview and selection process. This will benefit a good majority of widows, who are BSc nursing qualified.
The matter may be taken up with appropriate higher authority for policy decision and implementation.
