Recently going through the Indian Army website. Veteran’s corner displays the veteran detail’s including personal email id’s and phone number’s of retired veteran’s. Available for public download in a pdf format. Don’t know what people in uniform and what veteran’s think of it. Veteran’s are most precious asset of the nation. Privacy should be benchmark line when you deal with them.
I have sent an email on 25th Nov, 2016 to the concerned authority in the Army, Defence Minister and Defence Secretary. The acknowledgement of the email by the Indian Army & office of Raksha Manti was given on 6th December and 9th December, 2016 respectively.
On 09-01-2017 , Army replied with the following email – Dear Mr Dhiraj, Please note the following:
Dear Mr Dhiraj, Please note the following :-
|Veterans list uploaded on the website gives details such as Address, Phone No and Email.
For what reason they need to be made available to the public as far as contact details are considered still away from logic and to my analysis the officers tends to be serving as well as retired.
|The logic behind uploading address, phone no and e-mail ID of retired AMC Officers is mainly to enable potential job providers to get access to these highly qualified doctors to facilitate them to start a 2nd career if they so desire.

2nd Career opportunity to the retired veteran officer’s. That is the sole reason we have published this. Are veteran’s short of career opportunities. The details uploaded are of AMC officer’s. The reply didn’t make any sense on the issue. E-Interaction should be there but not at the cost of privacy. See the suggestion below for a Veteran Portal
