Many Ex-servicemen aired their problems with Advocate Ponnanna during an interaction  and sought his help to resolve the same. Ponnanna assured that he would resolve their problems in all the justified causes.

Most of their problems were with  regard to difficulty in getting their names and their children’s names included in the Record of Rights / RTC of their share in Jamma land.

Advocate Ponnanna, while addressing the gathering, spoke about various problems faced by Ex-Servicemen and ex-Para Military personnel and their children concerning Record of Rights /ownership of Jamma land.  He opined that the procedure / system to include Jamma land owners’  names in the Record of Rights / RTC should be simplified with concerted efforts by impressing upon the Government.

Ex-servicemen and widowed wives also projected their problems and Ponnanna assured to resolve their problems if the copies of connected documents are sent to his Office.

Cheppudira Arun Machaiah was the guest of honour.

Mandetira N. Subramani, President of VeKare Ex-servicemen Trust, highlighted the problems of two widows of Ex-servicemen who have been denied Death Certificates of their husband even after one-and-a-half years and requested Advocate Ponnanna to intervene.

Subramani said that one of the affected widows, Moodera Juby, aged  74  and wife of Sepoy Moodera Arjuna, did not get her husband’s  Death Certificate due to callousness of the concerned  Revenue Inspector according to the deceased’s son Cariappa.

The other helpless widow was Meederira Kamala Kumari, wife of Meederira late Havildar Bheemaiah, who too could not get the Death Certificate  as the concerned Village Accountant and Revenue Inspector failed to conduct mahazar or find out who is the living wife of the deceased since Bheemaiah married Kamala Kumari after the death of his first wife Damayanthi (Dharani) and lived with second wife for over 6 years.


Subramani requested Advocate Ponnanna to help both the widows in getting them the Death Certificates of their husbands so that they could claim their defence family pension as well as civil family pension since late Meederira Bheemaiah was re-employed and retired from BEL, Bengaluru while late Moodera Arjuna was re-employed at Mysore Sales International Ltd.

Ponnanna agreed to intervene  and help both the widows.
