ATTENTION VETERAN BROTHERS- SERIES-18




ATTENTION VETERAN BROTHERS SERIES- 18

DISCREPANCY IN DATE OF BIRTH IN BANK RECORDS

Of late  ,we have come to know  from our veterans 
 that the date of birth  recorded in Bank Records  is 
different from actual date of birth.

This is noticed  when the pension details  is taken from  computers.

The Date of birth is incorrect or  jumbled.
For example: 
1.     Actual DOB as per
      Discharge book/ Aadhar card/ PAN card -19-12-1942
But in Bank record , it is  42/19/1912-   not understood.

2.     Actual DOB as per discharge book;    01-02-1939
But in the Bank  Record it is -05/02/1952- no idea.
3.      In one case, Actual date of birth –7-12-1943
But in Bank record , it is  25-7-1929- from where this detail came . Nobody knows.
This  veteran is being paid additional pension.
We had  reported this to his CPPC, SBI, but they need a revised PPO indicating the Date of birth., which is embracing.

NOTE:  CDA cir 430, para 7.2 says, the DOB given in th Discharge certificate may taken by Banks  as actual DOB  .But Bank officials  demand a PPO for confirmation of DOB which is not reasonable.
Like wise, there are many such discrepancies

DOB is required to get Additional pension – on completion of 80Yrs of age. And for Enhanced rate of Family pension.

The format for  date  should be

Either   DD / MM / YYYY    OR    YYYY/MM/DD


But here it is very much different.

All our veterans are requested to obtain Pension Slip from Bank and confirm your date of birth  and if there is any difference , inform your bank with correct DOB  along with a copy of Discharge Book, PPO, School certificate , Aadhar card  etc.

CIRCULAR ISSUED FOR MINIMUM PENSION OF RS.18000




 CDA CIRCULARS 618  RELEASED  FOR MINIMUM PENSION OF RS.18000- FOR CASUALTY PENSIONARY AWARDS / SFP/ LFP/


PCDA  has issued a circular 618 dated  13-3-2019   for the Minimum rate of pension for causality/  Special / Liberalised Family pensioners .
The Rate  18000  is both inclusive of Service Element and Disability element.
Only very few veterans are benefited with very meager amount.

But, here is a confusion,  as to how to adjust the difference  , that Is to say , on which element it is to be added..

For Example:
One Sepoy  of Group Y   Qualifying service  say  1 yrs.
Service element  as per OROP  (cir 555-table-7)  is…5230.00
Disability element @ 50%......(cir 555 table 76)    is..1755.00.

As per 7th CPC –SE   is revised  as 5230X2.57…….13442.00
  Disability @ 50% is revised as 1755X2.57…………  4510.00
                            Total of SE + DE……………………..   17952.00
Now  as per the circular, the minimum shall not be less than Rs.18000/-
Here the difference is    18000 -17952= 48    w.e.f  01-01-2016

The doubt is in which element this 48 to be adjusted.  SE  or  DE.
This factor may affect the future revisions.
Though the affected veterans are very few, the fact remains the same.

Same way, Special family pension  as per OROP  minimum- 7000
As per 7th CPC it is  ..,,,,,,,7000 X 2.57……………….=17990
As per this circular ……….18000-   Difference is only Rs10=
Similarly  for Liberalised Family pension also  - 17990/-Diff-Rs.10/-
There is  no benefit of this circular .
Our veterans are requested to think over.

HONY OFFICERS- RANK OF LT / CAPT. AND JCOs


                                    

  
Our Liaison Officer Sgt.S.Kanthiah , veteran is discussing the subject with a serving Master warrant Officer.

HONORARY  OFFICERS RANK- LT  / CAPT  and   JCOs..

Hony.Ranks are granted to   Sub/sub.Maj of Army , CPO/ MCPO- I, MCPO-II of Navy and  WO/ MWO of Air force  on fulfilling certain conditions.

These Ranks are granted  while in Service  and it is paid rank and eligible for pension.  Normally  it is granted  in the last years of service of JCOs.

Then, some times this Rank is further Revised  to higher Rank also after discharge .
For example, a Hony.Lt   granted while in service, is further revised as Hony.Capt  for Army  after discharge, but no pension.

It will be notified by a corr PPO  indicating as—
Rank -Read as-  Hony.Capt    for  for -Sub.Maj/  Hony Lt.
In this case,  he is eligible for Pension for the Rank of Su.Maj/ Hony.Lt only
Many veterans are seeking clarification in this regard.

This  2nd Revision  of Rank  is normally done only in Army and not in Air Force or Navy.
In Navy and Air Force,  the granting this Rank while in Service is final .
e.g   In Air Force,, once  Hony.Fg Officer / Hony.Flt.Lt ,granted, there will be no further change.

In the same manner , in Navy,  Hony.Sub.Lt/   Hony.Lt  once granted, there is no further change.
Note: 
There is no change in service numbers  on this Hony.Ranks  for Navy and Air Force.
Their Service numbers given on enrollment continues  even When they are promoted to  JCOs Ranks also like JWO WO,& MWO IN Air Force and CPO, MCPO IN Navy, no change in Service numbers.
Even after promotion to Hony .Commission ranks , same number will continue.

But, in Army, when they are promoted to Nb.Sub ,Sub & Sub.Maj, the  JCO ranks ,their Regiment number is  changed as  JC.  1234. This JC number will continue for Hony.commission Ranks..

As per our thinking, it is a discrimination.

It is very easy to find out  from the Service Number of Army , whether one is a JCO, but in Air Force or Navy, we can not know from the service number alone.
One has to establish/ prove that he is a JCO i.e  a JWO/ WO/ MWO / CPO &MCPO by producing his documents Like Discharge Book, ID card etc.


While in uniform, it is easy to judge  but in civil dress , it is difficult .

We feel it is a disadvantage  by not having separate numbers for JCO Ranks.

We feel, in Air Force and Navy also, JCOs shall have different service numbers.

Our  Veteran brothers are requested to note the same and think over..
