This Is The Right Way For You To Donate Money Help Indian Armed Forces

Published on 23 September, 2016 at 5:07 pm By

A message on WhatsApp started doing the rounds after the Uri terror attacks which left 18 of our brave soldiers martyred. The message reads:

“Pay only Rs 1 per day (Rupee one only).

Like never before, the Modi government has started a new scheme exclusively for the Indian Army Battle Casualties and Weapon Purchase. The government has opened a bank account where people can donate funds directly to the Army Welfare Account which will be used for purchasing weapons for the Indian Army and providing facilities for war casualties.

The message then goes on giving details of a Syndicate Bank branch account where those willing to can deposit whatever amount they may want.

Like most WhatsApp messages, people are casting doubts on its veracity. Yes, the message is wrong at places but not entirely wrong.

Fact is that you can actually donate money to the Indian Army.

You can do so with the Syndicate Bank branch at New Delhi and the Indian Army itself had opened the account after the devastating Siachen avalanche that left 10 soldiers dead.

The above tweet gives the complete picture. But just so that you remember, here are the details:



Fund Name: ARMY WELFARE FUND BATTLE CASUALTIES

Bank Name: SYNDICATE BANK

Branch: SOUTH BLOCK, DEFENCE HEADQUARTERS, NEW DELHI – 110011

Branch Code: 9055

IFSC Code: SYNB0009055

Account NO: 90552010165915

The money received by the Indian Army is not meant for the purchase of weapons but for the families of the martyrs.

Even the Syndicate Bank had issued a statement confirming that they are accepting money for the Army Welfare Fund Battle Casualties.

But those who wish to donate money to the armed forces can also do so via the National Defence Fund, which is used for the welfare of all army personnel and their families.
