The below mentioned Veteran called on us and expressed his grievances
That he has put 20yrs service but being paid only Sepoy’s pension.
Name: R.Srinivasan Rank: Sep QS:20yrs. Gp- Y
As per his statement , he is eligible for the Rank of TS.Nk., but being paid pension
for the Rank of Sepoy.
He has also represented this discrepancy to his Record Office and not received reply.
He is a Post 2006 retiree and eligible for Disability of Minimum of 50% but being paid only 20%.
We have now prepared the Annexure for Broad Banding and guided him to forward the same through his PDA.
The veteran was happy with our action and thanked us for this help.
PLIGHT OF WIDOWS FOR COMMENCEMENT OF THEIR PENSION.
After the death of pensioners, the widows under go lots of hardship in
Getting their pension commenced.
There are two types:
1. Endorsement of Family pension already done.
2. Part II order published for Marriage but Endorsement of
family pension not done- Pre 1985 retirees.
In the case of Endorsement Existing:
1. The pension account is converted to Joint A/C with spouse.
2. No joint account done.
As per pension Rules, where the Joint notification and Joint a/c is
existing, on death of a pensioner, the pension may be disbursed to the
Widow after obtaining the death certificate, Non –marriage and undertaking certificates.
But what is happening, even after submitting the certificates, it takes
Months together for commencement. The Paying branch receives the Documents and forward it to their CPPC. CPPC takes their own time for Updating their DATA punching and so on. Till the time,
The widows are with out pension and income and facing the financial Hardship.
In some cases, as per Hindu religion, the widows are not allowed to come out from home for about 40days, then they run here and there for their pension.
The delay is due to both side of Bank as well as the widows.
Not only this, the widow has to run pillar to post for getting
Death Certificate, Legal heir certificate and Non-Marriage certificate from Municipality and Revenue Departments.
As we understand that ,to commence Family pension, it takes about
Not less than 3 months .
In some cases, the documents submitted to the paying branch is misplaced at the Branch or CPPC and no disbursement of pension
. After repeated reminders, the widows are advised to forward once more the documents, thus the delay.
In one case, due to this delay from all the sides, the CPPC now says
that the claim has crossed more than a year and a Fresh order has to come from CDA, then only they can disburse the pension.
The widows are advised to write to CDA for getting Fresh PPO.
We all know how much time the CDA takes for issuing PPO.
All the above facts are for those - the Endorsement and Joint A/C is
It is more difficult for those for whom there is no Part II order for Marriage and no Endorsement for family pension and No joint A/c..
These are the Hardships faced by the widows for getting their pension due to the inaction by the pensioners and the Banks.
We request all veteran brothers to convert your Pension single account into Joint account with your spouse with out delay to avoid the hardship to your spouse in the later date.
All our veteran Associations and Organisations are requested to
Educate / inform the veterans on their Annual meetings and other gatherings about this happenings..GUIDE AND HELP THEM.

On hearing the services of our Trust, one Hony.Capt called on us from Nagercoil

First he was sanctioned with pension for the Rank of Hony.Lt and then Hony.Capt..
We understand from the veteran that he was being paid pension fro the Rank of Hony.Lt for a long time in spite of his repeated request and representation.
Lastly he approached Defence Adalat and got the instruction for pension for Hony.capt. Now he is being paid correct Rate.
He complained that the pension was revised from 1-1-2006 only and not from the date of discharge i.e 1-4-1998.
We verified his available records . On going through his pass book entries from 1-5-1998 and month wise calculation, we noticed that the Bank has disbursed the pension at correct Rate from 1-5-1998 to 31-12-2005 also...
We explained the same to the veteran with full calculation and he was satisfied
and was relieved of his tension. He was of the view that his pension was revised from 1-1-2006 only and was worried. After coming to us and with our submission he is happy and his grievances addressed.

PTribune News Service
Chandigarh, September 15
Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee president Capt Amarinder Singh today joined the defence veterans’ march to Governor VP Singh Badnore to submit a memorandum. They stated that they supported the stand taken by three defence services’ chiefs against the alleged bias against defence personnel in the Seventh Pay Commission.The march was led by Lt Gen (retd) SS Brar, the seniormost amongst the veterans.Senior Congress leaders Ambika Soni, Asha Kumari and Harish Chaudhary too participated in the march.The memorandum addressed to the President, who is also the Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, read, “The community of veterans across the country fully endorses the stand taken by the Chiefs of Army, Navy and Air Force with regard to the recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission.”Capt Amarinder said such repeated “wrong” steps on the part of the government demoralised the defence forces. He said India could not afford to do that considering it had “a belligerent China and a mischievous Pakistan” as its neighbours. “Just because our soldiers are disciplined does not mean their rights should be trampled upon,” he said, saying that the anomalies should be removed at the earliest.

7. Total Qualifying service 8.Medical Category 9.Remarks
10. Any other information- Like IInd world war ect.
The affected veterans can apply directly or approach our EXWEL Trust for help and Guidance..
the Govt continues to adopt apathetic attitude towards Def Forces.We appreciate and support the step taken by the Three Chiefs to keep in abeyance the implementation of the Seventh CPC for them.
It is surprising that instead of taking a positive view of the Chiefs Recommendations to address and resolve the Anomalies,the Raksha Mantri has asked the Chiefs to implement the 7th CPC as wrongly decided by the Politico- Bureaucratic Combine.He has told the Chiefs that grievances IF ANY can be resolved later.Friends,look at the manner the the Govt (RM)has disposed of the unprecedented STEP taken by the three Chiefs.
We are in the present state because of thrusting such wrong and unacceptable ORDERS down the throats of Def Forces for the past 67 years.Request by the Chiefs for the Resolution of UNLAWFUL ORDERS given by the Govt is very much in order.The Anomalies of 6th CPC have not been resolved for the past TEN YEARS.How our RM is saying that the Anomalies pointed out by the THREE CHIEFS will be resolved later.From the past experience of 67 years these Anomalies WILL NEVER BE RESOLVED AND DEF FORCES WILL BE FURTHER DOWNGRADED AND DEGRADED.
We request our Chiefs to once again UNITEDLY AND STRONGLY REPRESENT TO THE PRIME MINISTER TO RESOLVE THE ANOMALIES BEFORE IMPLEMENTING THE 7TH CPC FOR DEF FORCES.
WE WILL STRONGLY SUPPORT OUR CHIEFS.
God bless the Indian Def Forces.
