NON PAYMENT OF PENSION ARREARS -CIR 547 -548
widow pensioners not received their arrears so far.
NON PAYMENT OF PENSION ARREARS- CIR 547 AND 548.
It is really Bad on the part of Bankers for Non-Crediting of Arrears to Family pensioners as per CDA cir 547 and 548.
It is now more than 6 months have passed since the issuance of the Circulars. Most of the pensioners have received the arrears even though still some more are left.
But, in the case of Family Pensioners, we understand that the banks are not having the required particulars like Rank, Group and Qualifying service , date of death of the deceased. Hence the delay.
But how long they can Delay. The Work of OROP is also added.
The required particulars may be ascertained from the existing Rate of Family pension, or we can find out from the papers available with the widows or the PDAs can obtain from Record Office / Pension Sanctioning Authority by raising Annexures as per Cirs.
Many widows have crossed 80 yrs of age, ailing, bedridden and counting their days of life.
WHAT IS THE PROBLEM- as per CDA cir 397 Annexure-III and 547/548 , the Rates of Family pension is a FIXED rate according to Rank and Group- No need for Qualifying service..
Now, as on date, the widows are being paid monthly pension, as per latest Cir 502/503. We cane easily ascertain the Rank and Group.
SAY FOR EXAMPLE: A WIDOW OF A SUBEDAR- GROUP- B – H
The difference ……………894.00 per month .
This is payable from 1-1-2006 to 24-9-2012.
The Multiplying Factor is =103.65= 894 X 103.65=92663.00
This is the Arrears payable. If the widow was drawing her pension from 1-1-2006.
If the date of death of pensioner was after 1-1-2006 and after 30-6-2009, then the calculation is different.
At least this category of the widows can be credited immediately, why delay.
It is nothing bur Harassment to the widow pensioners.
We all know the difficulties/ procedures for claiming LTA after the demise of Pensioners / Family pensioners.
In view of the above facts, we as an Ex-Servicemen Welfare Trust Fervently request all the Bankers to take a special Drive / interest to calculate and pay the eligible arrears with out further delay.
Dear veteran brothers, please find out and help the affected widow pensioner in your areas for getting their arrears during their life time itself, by approaching the PDAs and associations.
