On hearing the services of our Welfare Trust, the widow approached us and wanted to know whether there is any possibility of getting military pension.

Daughter and Grand daughters of the late veteran called on our office with the available documents.

We explained the Rules for sanctioning of pension, and because of short length of service and reduction in strength , the late Hav. Was not sanctioned with pension.

How ever, we have represented the case to Arty Record office along with the available documents for considering the case sympathetically.

Both the daughter and grand daughters were satisfied with our action and sincerely thanked our Trust for such a help to innocent widows.

Our Trust is very happy in guiding a IInd World War widow.

ATTENTION VETERAN BROTHERS- SERIES-2





DISABILITY    PENSIONERS TO KNOW:

Disability pension   orders will be  denoted by :
 D/  012/ year,     D/RA/  012/ year     DE/ corr/ 012/ year.

D  means  disability pension sanctioned  for a particular period say 5,  10 years. After this period, the pensioner has to re appear for Re assessment of Medical board, then the percentage  of Disability element may increase, may remain the same  or it may be reduced  .   Here the PPO  will be denoted as     D/ RA/ 012/ year  for life.     The same is now modified
 as DE / 012/ year  for life .

In earlier times the Rate of percentage was, 20%, 30%, 40% , 50% and so on  up to 100%.
Now it is sanctioned as 50% minimum.

Those who retired prior to 1996 and after 1996  up to 31-12-2005  with Disability pension with the reason for :

Invalided out,        Medically boarded  out , not fit for further military service etc.  Under Clause  13-(iii)

These clause of veterans can apply for Broad banding i.e Rounding of  Disability element.  That is their exiting percentage will be enhanced to :

20 %  to 49%        ……….as 50%
50   to   75%         ………  as 75 %
76%  to 100 %............... as 100 %

The Veterans have to send Annexure as per CDA cir 429 duly filled  and signed by the PDA to their Record Office, . After verifying the records, the RO will send the annexure to CDA and the CDA will send the revised PPO enhancing the  Rate of Disability element.   It may take 3 to 4 months time.

Previously the rate of Disability pension was fixed  for Ranks:

Sepoy  to  Havidar…………..100%  disability ….3510.00
Nb.Sub to Sub.Major……… 100%  disability…………  4300.00
Comm.Officers  and
Hony. Comm.officers……..  100%  disability….       5880.00    


Now as per the latest circular  456, the Disability pension is calculated on the Emolument last drawn by the pensioner. That is 30% of the emolument will  100% disability.

For example:
A sepoy of say   X group…  Minimum fitment as per cir 501-         12240/-
100 % disability   will    30% of the emolument   i.e… 12240 X 30%= 3672.

Say   if the Sepoy was sanctioned with say 20% disability  then  it will be  20% of 3672=   735.
Previously it was= fixed rate of 3510 X 20%= 702.    So There is Difference .

Likewise the disability pension will vary for each veteran  according to their Ranks and their emolument.
Note: the disability pension is calculated for the Rank held at the time of discharge.

The affected ESM has to approach the PDA  and get the revised Disability pension or they have to write to their respective Record Office.

ATTENTION VETERAN BROTHERS- SERIES-1

Dear Veteran Brothers, ,

Please go through the following points for the betterment of self and your family members.

ENDORSEMENT OF FAMILY PENSION

!   Pre-April 1984 retirees - please confirm that you have applied for Endorsement of family pension and got Joint Notification  in favour of your wife.
If not done , please apply immediately as it too late.
We have come to know that still many Pre- 1984 retirees have not applied  because they are not aware of this . By this not knowing the joint notification order, your family will not get pension after your demise suffer
without pension. Take it as serious and apply immediately.

IMPORTANCE OF PART II ORDER.

2. After discharge from service, have you reported the birth of children, death of first wife, second marriage etc. and got the Part II order published.

Unless Part II order is published , your children will not get the benefits of Scholarship, Priority for employment  and joining the ECHS.

In the absence of Part II order, no pension will be paid to wife, Second wife  and children after your demise.
Hence, take it seriously and report any changes in your family status to your record office.

Note that the Second Marriage is void while the First wife is alive. You can go for second marriage  with the consent of of first wife and court order.

We have come to know one case study , that the second marriage was done when the first wife was alive.
The first wife died, and the pensioner is also died.. Now the second wife is with out pension as the marriage was void. Now thw whole family is suffering without pension. The children born to the second wife are eligible for pension but there is no Part II order for the children, hence no pension. This is the situation,

Please visit our blogs . We will be publishing more articles.

SUBEDAR"S WIFE BEING PAID PENSION OF WIDOW OF A SEPOY.




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.

ONE MORE 87 YRS OLD SPECIAL FAMILY PENSIONER HELPED.




SMT.CHITRAI AMMAL W/O LATE SEP.KADARKARAI AGE.87
WHAT SHE WILL DO WITH THIS 6.75 LAKHS AT THIS STAGE.

DELAYED  PAYMENT  OF LUMP SUM PENSION ARREARS

We have come across cases of lump sum payment of pension arrears to widows who are aged above eighty years and bedridden.  Thanks to IESM PENSION CELL,  and various other organizations for creating awareness in this regard.

The Pension guide books published in Tamil by the Exwel Trust, “Therinthu Kollungal” and “Iranuva Pensanarkalukku oru vazhikatti” in Tamil and another pension guide released in Hindi “Gyan Leejiye” for free down load through our Blogwww.indianexserviceman.blogspot.com have created great awareness among the defence pensioners.  The Indian Ex-servicemen Movement have created a great awareness among the ex-servicemen all over India for the demand of One Rank One Pension.  Therefore all ex-servicemen should join IESM and strengthen its movement.

With the help of IESM Pension Cell, the “Exwel Trust” have traced out around fifty Special family pensioners during the past three years and helped each one of them to get a lump sum amount of more than five lakhs.

Recently on 02.03.2013, the “Exwel Trust” have helped a widow aged around 87 years to get a pension arrears of Rs.6.75 lakhs.  This case was referred to us by another organization, who could not succeed in their attempt with the bank to get arrears.  We verified the documents and confirmed to the Union Banks Chief Grievances Officer at Mumbai by letter and email.  The Bank insisted for a confirmation from CDA(P) Allahabad, that the holder of PPO No.F/13055/66 Smt.Chitrai Ammal W/O late Sep.No.6779693 V.Kadarkarai that she is eligible for a basic pension of Rs.7000/- per month.  We represented that the confirmation will take time and by then the widow will die.  All the relevant circulars of CDA on the subject was sent immediately to Union Bank Head Office, Mumbai and Regional Office, Madurai.

In spite of our continued efforts to get the payment at the earliest, the bank insisted for confirmation from CDA(P).  Later, one fine day, the Exwel Trust member made a direct call to the Chief grievances officer Smt.Asha Sharma at Mumbai and explained the health condition of the widow, and insisted for payment before her death. And  If the payment is not made before her death, it will be a great shame to the Bank and the entire banking community.

Finally on 26.02.2013 and amount of Rs.6.74 lakhs was credited to her account.  The widow in a semi conscious state, does not understand what is happening around her. One of her daughter Smt.Muthu Madathi brought her from the village in a hired Taxi and the Bank Manager was kind enough to make payment immediately.

Now the question is why such a situation had arises ?  Who is responsible for this state of affairs ?  If the  the “Exwel Trust”, had not taken such an effective step in the matter, for the payment, the widow would have never received the amount in her life time. Banks should take note of the situation and avoid recurrence in future.

However, we are very much thankful for the Union Bank’s  Chief Grievances Officer Smt.Asha Sharma  at Mumbai, and Shri Palanikumar of Union bank of India Regional Office at Madurai and l the Senior Manager Shri V.Iykodu of Union Bank, Tirunelveli Branch for helping in various ways to disburse the pension arrears to the widow in time.
Special thanks to Smt.Asha Sharma for her patient hearing over phone on the subject.
