  • The Indian Army is commemorating 2019 as the ‘Year of Next of Kin’.
  • It plans to reach out to the next of kin of battle casualties, ex-servicemen and serving soldiers to inform them of entitled financial benefits, welfare schemes and help resolve pension- related problems.
  • The issue gains importance in light of most next of kin of deceased soldiers being unaware of the financial benefits.
