Separate instructions issued today for release of balance of arrears of pension in respect of retired defence personnel

The PCDA(P) has issued a separate circular today to all banks directing them to release the balance 60% arrears in respect of pensioners of the three defence services.

The Ministry of Defence had issued the sanction letter immediately (28 Aug 09) on receipt of instructions from the Finance Ministry and the Department of Pensions.

Pensioners may contact their Pension Disbursing Agencies (PDAs) for release of the balance arrears in case of any problem in this regard.

Throw some light on upward revision of disability pension and also please take up the case of broadbanding/rounding off disability pension with concerned authorities.

Dear Major Navdeep Sir,
Even though orders/instructions have been issued to pay balance 60 percent arrears of pension by 30 Sep 09 but the fact remains that majority of pensioners retd.in 2006& 2007 are yet to get their 40 percent arrears of pension. The Corr.PPOs are yet to be received by the PDAs. PDAs may also take their own sweet time to release arrears and commence new pension.
