YET ANOTHER ERRONEOUS PPO -REDUCTION OF PENSION.
YET ANOTHER CASE OF ERRONEOUS PPO- REDUCTION IN PENSION.
There had been many cases where the Corr.PPOs issued by CDA Project Sangam were incorrect. The Rates of pension was reduced and the Veterans/ Families were put in to hardship/ mental agony. i.e Reducing the Qualifying service and lowering the Group etc .say X to Y.
When such cases were reported to PCDA, They issued 2 circulars- 163 and 181 instructing the Banks, Pension paying agencies not to act on such PPOs and furnish the particulars to CDA for correction.
But PDAs are not following the Circulars..
And also As per Rules 8 and 9 of CCS (Pension) Rules 1972- it says:
“A PENSION ONCE SANCTIONED , SHALL NOT BE REVISED TO THE DISADVANTAGE OF THE GOVERNMENT SERVANT, UNLESS SUCH A REVISION BECOME NECESSARY ON ACCOUNT OF A DETECTION OF CLERICAL ERROR SUBSEQUENTLY. ALSO, NO REVISION TO THE DISADVANTAGE OF THE PENSIONER TO BE ORDERED AFTER A PERIOD OF 2 YEARS FROM ORIGINAL SANCTION.”
Our Trust had represented few such cases to PCDA and Record Offices and Reverted to the original rate of pension , re-crediting the Recoveries.
Of late, we have come to know that one Hony.Nb.sub ( HAV- ACP-1)( Hav- Gp-Y, 26Yrs QS) has received a Corr.PPO , reducing his Basic pension from 10029 to 9382 without giving any reason.
We fail to understand, how this Corr.PPO has passed through all the Auditing and the Record Office has forwarded to the pensioner.
Then the PDA has immediately acted and started recovering the excess amount paid as per the original PPO, a higher rate with out referring CDA Circulars. 163 and 181.
This happenings are published by us for the information of all our ESM Organisations to note and take up the case with the authorities concerned .
