Now as pewer the latest Corr PPO, his QS is reduced to 15 yrs and the pension for 15 yrs.
The PDA has reduced the pension and informed his about the recovery- the excess amount paid.
The worried veteran reported this happening to us.
We, immediately contacted the PDA and the their CPPC and told them not to recover any amount without verifying the records and CDA cir 163. We also informed this incident to Army Veterans Cell at New Delhi and our IESM. They , in turn advised the Chairman of the bank and CPPC not to proceed further without going through the Cir 163.
The CPPC now informed us over phone that they have now verified the previous PPOs and confirmed that his QS is 17 yrs , Hence, no recovery will be made and the reduction in pension will be reversed .
We informed this news to the veteran and the Aggrieved veteran was so happy and sincerely trhanked us for this timely valuable help, thus relieving his mental agony.
Our Trust is also happy in Addressing the grievances of an innocent veteran.
Dear veteran brothers, please help such veterans who receives a wrong PPO in your areas.
