More than 10,000 armed forces personnel died in India between 1994 and 2017, according to the South Asia Terrorism Portal. Which is why putting a ceiling on the education expenses of the children of soldiers who are missing, disabled, or killed in action is unfair. From July 1, a cap has been imposed, which will affect 3,400-odd children of the armed forces personnel. Even outside the armed forces, concerned individuals have pitched in to express solidarity with the families of martyrs. The gesture will go a long way towards boosting the morale of the armed forces.
