PENDING-PENDING- AND PENDING -DISBURSEMENT OF PENSION ARREARS AS PER CDA CIRCULARS-547, 548, 555, 560 AND 567.
PENDING –PENDING- AND PENDING - DISABURSEMENT OF
ARREARS –CDA CIRS 547,548, 555,560 AND 567.
It is heartening to note that still lot many veterans and family pensioners
are not paid with their eligible pension Arrears as per the above Circulars.
As per bank officials, the reason for the Delay is Non Availability of DATAs like Rank, Group and Qualifying service and Date of birth with them.
But how long this answer will continue, some way has to be found out.
The Pensioners and the Banks have to initiate steps like forwarding Annexures to the concerned Record Offices/PSA for obtaining the required particulars.
Most of the Pensioners are not aware of these Annexures and only the Bank has to
Inform the pensioners where ever the documents are insufficient. And initiate
Raising the Annexures. Bur it is not being done, thus the delay and pending.
There are circulars stating that in case of DOUBT in revising the pension, they can approach the PSA concerned.
We have come across few cases of death with out receiving their entitled dues in time. It is unfortunate.
Now the Banks will be busy in implementing the DE-LINKING OF 33 yrs service – as per CDA circular 568 followed by 7th Pay Commission and addressing the anomalies
So, the old cases will keep on PENDING …..and it will be allowed to rest and forgotten on the demise of pensioners..
It is not that easy to claim the Life Time Arrears by the NOK nowadays.
Our humble request to all our ESM organizations and Associations to help our affected Veteran brothers and Family pensioners in your areas to get their entitled pension arrears PAID IN TIME on a war foot.
