7th CPC recommends Empanelment of Well-established Civil Prosthetic Centres

In the case of pensioners with disabilities one of the submissions made before the Commission was that all disabled ex-servicemen have to travel to Artificial Limb Centre (ALC), Pune for repair and replacement of their prosthetic fittings.

In addition to ALC there are only five sub-centres in the entire country and they are ill-equipped and unable to carry out even minor repairs. A case has therefore been made for empanelment of well-established civil prosthetic centres to make facilities for good quality repair and replacement of artificial limbs easily accessible to disabled ex-servicemen.

In view of the hardships faced by disabled ex-servicemen the Commission recommends that the government may empanel well established civil prosthetic centres where retired pensioners can avail the facility.
