How come two most imp allces and which affect the max people incl Tpt allce and HRA have not been increased. Infact the reason of increase in DA to curren levels is increasing inflation which has the mos direct relation with increased fuel prices..

Suvigya software-hosted vsf web

Government of India has taken a number of decisions to improve the benefits of defence pensioners.
The most recent improvements are implementation of the 6th Central Pay Commission Report and
further improvements as per Cabinet Secretary Committee’s Report.

2. In order to enable Defence pensioners to know their correct entitlement as a result of various Govt. orders, the Controller General of Defence Accounts (CGDA) has developed a software called
“Suvigya”. This software requires some minimum inputs to be provided about the pensioner (e.g.
date of discharge! retirement, rank / group, qualifying service, date of birth, initial pension etc.). On the basis of this information, “Suvigya” shows the changes in pension as a result of different revisions and the latest pension entitlements. The software also provides for taking print-out of the result.

3. “Suvigya” software has been installed in the offices of Rajya I Zila Sainik Boards and Defence
Pension Disbursement Offices (DPDOs) in a phased manner. Defence pensioners can approach any of these offices (irrespective of where they reside or the agency from which they draw their pension) to know their correct entitlements through “Suvigya”. In case they are not being paid their pension as per entitlement, they may take up the matter with their Pension Disbursing Agencies

Is it just a morale booster or a feel good factor. For Example All Galantry awardees, particularly the Kirti and Shaurya Chakra awardees may be feeling too delighted to avail the facilities of Rajdhani/Shatabdi Ex.
Limit your happiness since Railways have computerised the availability of seat for pass holders. Which means that a seperate Waitlist in the form of DPWL/1 or DPWL/12 is reflected in the ticket and your Number will come only if there is no wait list in the general class. In another term, the benefit is just a fun or feel good factor. Even if seats are available in the general quota you will be isuued with DPWL.
Happy journey in Rajdhani/Shatabdi.
Somebody please tell the railways.

Can anybody tell me, when is the claim for encashment of Annual leave gets time barred? Recently CDA has rejected one supplementary claim for inclusion of DA with EL, done within 3 months of original claim for EL encashment with only BASIC into consideration.I thought atleast one year is supposed to pass by before you time bar one claim.
