INORDINATE DELAY .FOR PAYMENT OF ARREARS AS PER CDA CIR 547, 548 AND 549
INORDINATE DELAY FOR PAYMENT OF ARREARS AS PER CDA CIR 547/549.
It is now more than 5 months passed since the release of CDA circulars 547 and 549
For payment of arrears for Pre-2006 retirees.
Still large number of defence pensioners have not received their arrears.
Some of the CPPCs have permitted their Branches to calculate and pay the arrears at their end. But the Branches are reluctant to pay the arrears and informing that they are not aware of this calculation/ no documents with them, hence the delay.
We have published in our Blog , the method of calculation ON 28th December 2015 and Our Trust is ready to Assist the Bank branches in the calculation works if requested.
Now, there is a speculation that the OROP chart may be released at any time, but it is unfortunate that the payment of arrears for previous Circulars not yet completed.
We earnestly request all the banks to arrange for a speedy payment of arrears with out further delay and avoid a Heavy pressure latter.
All our ESM associations and veterans are requested to approach the nearby Bank branches to appraise the situation and extend assistance for early payment of arrears.
