A large number of War Disabled Veterans/ Battle causalities are amputation cases, amputated due to injuries sustained in war and war like conditions and have restricted mobility. In view of this special disposition, they rightfully deserve certain privileges. AFMS has always remained committed in providing them priority in AFMS hospitals

Henceforth, War Disabled Veterans/Battle Causalities (self only) may be offered Specialist consultation directly at the OFDs of Armed Forces hospitals on OFD days, without obtaining a referral from the ECHS Polyclinics. However, these veterans will continue to avail services of their dependant polyclinic for routine illnesses.
