PLIGHT OF YET ANOTHER WIDOW RECEIVING ORDINARY PENSION INSTEAD OF SPECIAL FAMILY PENSION.
Smt.Adaikalamari is expressing her gratitude to our Trust Liaison Officer Sgt.S.Kanthiah.
PLIGHT OF YET ANOTHER WIDOW OF SFP RECEIVING ORDINARY FAMILY PENSION.
During our special interaction with pensioners, we came to know that the below mentioned widow is receiving an Ordinary family pension of a Sepoy instead of Special Family pension for the Rank of Naib Subedar..
Name: Smt.Adaikalamari W/O Late: Thomas Jaya Dass Rank: NB,SUB (JC 23789) Group- E
PPO.NO: F/ 711/1968.
PDA: Central Bank of India- Tirunelveli-dist, tamil Nadu.
We contacted and requested her to call at our office with all available documents.
On scrutinizing the papers, we noticed that her Husband died on 08-01-1967 while in service and she was sanctioned with SPECIAL FAMILY PENSION vide PPO .No: F/ 711/1968
On verifying the Bank pass book entries, we confirmed that she was being paid Ordinary family pension of a Sepoy so long.
It is heartening to note that, on calculation, the arrears comes to Ten lacs plus that too from 1-1-1996 to 31-12-2013 only..
When we enquired from the widow, she replied that she is not aware of Ranks and Rates of pension. She is satisfied that she is getting some pension.
The Auditors from RBI, AGs Office and the Banks have not noticed this short payment for the last 26 years. They are interested to find out the Excess payment and immediate recovery./
It is a surprise that her son is also an Ex-Serviceman, recently discharged, was not aware that her mother was receiving short payment.
When we explained all this discrepancies and the arrears, the innocent widow was surprised and sincerely thanked us for this timely help, not only to her but for the ESM community as a whole.
It is once again established that but for the timely intervention and help rendered by our Trust, this case would have gone un-noticed .
We regret to inform the readers and the PDAs that the Prefix in the PPO- F, F/BC AND F/NA is still not understood and followed the PDAs , hence the widows are not paid correct rate pension. We have published an article regarding this in detail early.
Our Trust is proud in helping such a Pitiable and helpless widows.
