Smt.Packiamany with her son at our Trust office.
WIDOW OF A SUBEDAR BEING PAID PENSION OF WIDOW OF A SEPOY.
It is heartening to note that one Nationalised Bank is paying a minimum family pension to a widow of a Group B Subedar, even though the Rank is very clearly mentioned in the PPO.
Name: Smt. C.Packiamany Ammal, W/O Late Devasahayam Rank: Subedar, Regt.No: JC 13419K Group- B, (28 yrs of service Died in 1989 )
PPO.No: F/ NA/ 1934/1990 ( S/CORR/ 056812*2008)
PDA: Syndicate Bank, Nagercoil, Kanyakumari-Dist, TN.
Presently Paid pension= 3500+2520=6020/-
On the advise of the Deputy Director, ESM Welfare, Nagercoil, the widow accompanied with her son called on our trust office on 19-3-2013. For verifying the correctness of her pension.
On verifying the PPO, Discharge certificate and the bank pass book from way back to 1-1-1996, we confirmed that she was being paid the minimum rate of family pension, i.e Rs.1275, 1913 and 3500/-
When we calculated the arrears , it is about a Lakh plus.
We have now taken up the case with the Head Office, Customer Care centre, Syndicate Bank , Bangalore, regarding the Lethargy/ negligence and deficiency of service by the Branch by paying a short pension amounting to a Lakh plus to a aged widow. This incident of short payment attracts compensation of interest for the delayed payment by the Bank.
The innocent widow was surprised to know this much short payment from the beginning -1996 on wards
Both the mother and her Son felt sorry for their innocence for not knowing the deficiency of service by the bank and they expressed their heart felt gratitude for the help by our Welfare Trust.
Our Trust is happy in helping one more widow pensioner.
