Non receipt of proper amount of pension is a disturbing matter for the Defence Personnel. But, not so, for the powers that be in the administration! The country first "CEASED TO BE GOVERNED" Now it has "CEASED TO BE ADMINISTERED". The UN- civil Babus have found a new way to taunt the defence personnel. For the first time in Independent India, the CDA has decided NOT TO ISSUE FRESH PPO AS WAS BEING DONE HITHERTO AFTER EVERY PAY REVISION. It has asked Banks to fix the pension and pay off, without causing extra work for them... they are on S N O O Z E. The banks say they do not know how to fix pension. I spoke to Mr Harbans Singh in the Ministry of Defence. The ministry appeared to be whole heartedly enjoying the humiliation of the soldiers. I have been advised to knock at the doors of the disbursing bank. If the branch does not act, I should approach higher bank authorities. The Banks want you to make an application for revision of your pension, giving all service details (forget that these are already held by them!!!) and a copy of earlier PPO. You must state your date of birth, date of joining service, date of retirement and total service rendered. Then your case will be studied by the banks. So, after usage of millions of papers, envelopes and postage payment to the postal department by two million ESM and dependants, you can hope to have your pension revised. GOD HELP THOSE WHO CANNOT WRITE . THEY WILL SUFFER ENDLESSLY.
