Dear Brig Deo,
I came across your email sent to Wg Cdr Bendre about family pension and additional pension for old age in case of Mrs Pandit w/o late Air Marshal Pandit. I have been able to sort out pension of following widows/ veterans after preparing worksheet in each case and visiting their houses in the first place and later visiting their respective paying banks:
1 Ms Sushila Bhagwat -w/o Lt Col Bhagwat (AMC)-DOB: 12 Mar 1920
2 Mrs kumud Ghanekar-w/o Lt Col Ghanekar-DOB: 6 Feb 1931
3 Mrs Leela Rege-w/o lateLt Col Rege,Vr C-DOB: 18 Jan 1925
4 Mrs Thelma M Karnik-w/o late Lt Col Karnik: DOB-22 Mar 1925
5 Mrs vaishali Joshi w/o late Wg Cdr V S Joshi
6 Major KP Damle(IC-4965)DOB: 27 Nov 1919
7 Mrs Srilata Banerjee w/o late Air Cdre D Banerjee(5800)-By email
8 Mrs Anupam A Karve w/o late Cdr A N Karve(IN)
9 Mrs Sadhana P sabnis w/o late Gp capt P D Sabnis(Adm)
10 Mrs Patankar w/o late Maj Gen Patankar
11 Mrs Aruna Kodical w/o late Sqn Ldr Kodical

In addition I have been visiting most of the branches of Bank of Maharashtra, SBI, Canara Bank, Syndicate Bank at Pune city and finalising cases of retired defence officers. It is my experience that entrusting this job of paying pensioners to PDAs (Banks) was the root cause of delays. I dont blame bank staff who have no knowledge/ exposure of our intricate rules and regulations. Once your credentials are established they all have responded well and accepted my worksheets. Unfortunately some of the information is not forthcoming from our own HQ eg Length of service and whether time scale or selection grade in case of Wg Cdrs, is not mentioned in PPO and that has delayed many cases to determine their pension after they were brought under PB-4.
This is to give you the enormous task that has to be tackled. I wonder how our PBORs are being served with their legitimate pensionary benefits.
with regards,
Gp Capt SS Phatak (Retd)

Our compliments to you Gp Capt Phatak- keep up the great social service.
Chander Kamboj
