We had earlier published about the same subject in our blog .
Due to the hardships faced by the Widows/ NOKs in obtaining LTA certificate, we are once again publishing the same for information of veterans.
Cases like, pensioner died some where 1986 , was drawing pension through treasury. Now, when the widow applied for DUAL family pension , LTA is one of the documents required. Whe she approaches the Treasury , they say there is no document available, hence cannot issue LTA..When this is informed to Record office and CDA, they insist for an Affidavit , thus making the widows to run pillar to post.
A certificate as per CDA cir 476 is also not considered.
In our opinion, obtaing of LTA may be waived, getting the un drawn amount is the interest of NOK, why should we compel them,.
Our Welfare Trust requests all the ESM organisation to think over and try to convince the authorities for waiver.
