Kendriya Sainik Board:
HISTORICAL BACKGROUND
1. In a Government Resolution dated 07 Sep 1919, the then Government of India suspended the functioning of the Central Recruiting Board and at its place a new Board was established called the Indian Soldiers' Board to advise on matters affecting the interest of serving, discharged and deceased Indian Soldiers and non-combatants and their dependents.
2. In March 1951, it was renamed as the Indian Soldiers', Sailors and Airmen's Board. The designation of the Board was changed to the Kendriya Sainik Board in 1975. This Board functions under the Ministry of Defence as an Inter-Service Organisation. The Secretariat was placed under direct administrative control of Director General Resettlement from 18 Apr 1982.
3. Though welfare of the ex?Servicemen (ESM) and their dependents is the joint responsibility of the Centre and the States/UTs, however, majority of the problems have to be resolved only by the States/UTs. To assist the State Governments in this regard, there are 32 Rajya Sainik Boards in the country (Appendix 'A'). Like the Kendriya Sainik Board at the Centre, the Rajya and Zila Sainik Boards at the State and District level respectively are advisory bodies in respect of policy formulation with regard to resettlement and welfare of their ex-Servicemen/families
