Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Friday said that approval has been accorded for giving financial assistance of Rs 50 lakh to the family members of Late Brigadier Lakhwinder Singh Lidder, a Haryana resident, who lost his life in the Tamil Nadu helicopter crash.
“Besides this, one dependent from the Brigadier's family will also be given a government job. The untimely demise of Brigadier Lakhwinder is an irreparable loss to his family and the state,” Khattar said.
The Chief Minister said that under the ex-gratia policy of Sainik and Ardh Sainik Bal, there is a provision to provide financial assistance as well as government jobs to the dependents of martyr families.
Under this policy, considering the death of Brigadier Lakhwinder Singh, who lost his life in a helicopter crash accident, as a ‘Provisional Battle Causality’, special financial assistance and job have been announced, he said.
