3. Is it necessary for the pensioner to open a separate pension account for the purpose of crediting his/ her pension in authorized bank?

Processing of appeal
An Armed Forces Personnel, who is boarded out on medical grounds or is discharged / released / retires in low medical categories has the right to appeal against the denial of disability pension within a period of six months from the date of rejection of his initial claim. He will submit his claim to his Record Office(PBOR) / Service Hqrs(Commissioned Officers), which, in turn, will forward the same to Service Hqrs, as the case may be, to place it before the Appellate Committee. Similarly, right of appeal is available to next of kin to Armed Forces Personnel, whose initial claim for special family pension has been rejected. This Committee comprises of:-

Chairman     :     DDG(PS)/equivalent rank in Air Force and Navy
    Member       :    (a)    DDG(Pens),  Office of DGAFMS
                         (b)    DFA (Pension)

Chairman :       Vice Chief of Army Staff or equivalent in Navy/Air Force

The process for grant of pension is initiated by the Unit where the individual is posted, 18 months ahead of discharge/retirement.  Personnel Below Officer Rank(PBOR)  is attached with the concerned Record Office(RO) for completion of pension documents one month prior to discharge/retirement. Pension claim is initiated by the concerned RO in the case of PBOR and by Service Hqrs in case of Commissioned Officers and is forwarded to the respective Pension Sanctioning Authorities for notifying the Pension Payment Order(PPO).  PPO is notified by Pr. Controller of Defence Accounts (Pen),  Allahabad, in the case of Army personnel, Pr.

Defence Pensioners and disbursement agencies
There are 22.50 lakhs Defence pensioners and 55,000 to 60,000 are added every year.  The pension is disbursed across the country by approximately 45000 branches of the Public sector branches, 640 Treasury offices of the various State Govts, 61 Defence Pension Disbursing offices, two Post offices, Five Pay Account Offices and the three Pension Payment Offices of Indian Embassy, Nepal. PCDA (P) Allahabad is centrally responsible for accounting and audit of such pension payments, which amounts to approximately Rs 39,000 crores during the year 2012-13.

Defence Pension Adalat
A large community of Ex-servicemen specially Personnel Below Officers Rank (PBOR) and their families are settled in the interiors as also remote areas. The lack of awareness at the ground level both at the end of the pensioners as well as amongst the local authorities specially the disbursing agencies leads to generation of grievances either on delays in disbursement or on incorrect payments.  Defence Pension Adalats provide a credible forum for redressal of grievances of the defence pensioners near to their place of residence/work. Reforms in disbursement of pension is a continuous process.  The whole idea is to make the life of the defence pensioners dignified and hassle free so that they can get their due entitlement promptly without running from pillar to post.

Since representatives of concerned organisations are present in the Adalat, it is possible to take appropriate decisions on the spot to the extant possible. The Adalat disseminates latest information, order circulars, procedures, forms and formats not only to the pensioners but also to various local authorities like Banks and Treasury offices etc besides providing clarification of doubts on pension provisions and procedures. Six such Adalats are held in a year.

Pension Grievances Cell
The cell receives on an average representations around 600 to 1000 in a month.  These are examined in the Cell by the concerned Dealing Hand and referred to the concerned agencies for redressal manually with a copy to the individual so that he should know as to where his case has been referred.  The Department has initiated a project for computerized Grievance Redressal to National Informatic Centre Services Inc. (NICSI), which is likely to be completed in the current financial year.  States have also been requested to set up grievance redressal mechanism for the ex-servicemen.

Process for disposal of Court cases 
The Legal Notices and Writ Petitions/Original Petitions, relating to pensionary matters, filed in various Courts are forwarded to the respective Service Hqrs for defending the case on behalf of Union of India and others and to take necessary action for filing counter reply, briefing the Govt. Counsel and attending the Court’s hearings.  Powers for implementation of other wise of the Court cases have been delegated to the Service Hqrs, who, in turn, have redelegated the powers to lower formations like line directorate/Record Offices, etc.  Special Leave Petition (SLP) in the Supreme Court is, however, processed by them with Ministry of Law to Department of Ex-Servicemen Welfare.  DP&PW is also consulted wherever necessary.  DP&PW is also consulted, wherever necessary.

Status of recommendations of 6th CPC
Govt. letters for revision of pension of Armed Forces pensioners were issued on 11.11.2008 for pre 1.1.2006 retirees and on 12.11.2008 for post 1.1.2006 retirees.  The pension of pre 1.1.2006 has to be revised as given in MOD’s letter dated 11.11.2008 first by consolidation, which has further to be adjusted in terms of Annexure-II(Modified Parity).  This letter is available on the websites www.cgda.nic.in ,

GOOD NEWS - For All Pensioners

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Payment of the arrears of revised pension from 01-01-2006 rather than 24-09-2012.

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Chandigarh, May 1
In a decision that would cheer up all categories of Central Government pensioners, the Delhi High Court has ruled that the arrears of the corrected anomaly under the Sixth Pay Commission be granted with effect from January 1, 2006, and not from the prospective date of September 24, 2012.
The Sixth Pay Commission had introduced broad pay bands, replacing individual scales, and had provided that pension of employees who retired prior to 2006 shall not be less than 50 per cent of the minimum pay in the pay band plus grade pay corresponding to the scale held by them at the time of retirement as introduced with effect from January 1, 2006.
The said recommendation was accepted and implemented. However, the government later stated that the “minimum pay” would imply the minimum pay of the pay band itself and not the minimum pay within the pay band corresponding to the fitment of the scale held prior to the 2006. The pay commission categorised employees into four pay bands and each pay band contained different pay scales for different ranks.
The government move resulted in minuscule difference in pension of various ranks since all ranks in a pay band were brought down to the minimum of the pay band rather than the minimum of the relevant rank pay scale.
The pension of civilian grades of junior time scale, senior time scale and junior administrative grade and of military ranks of Lieutenant, Captain and Major were released on the same minimum of Rs 15,600, leading to discontent among pensioners.
The Full Bench of the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT), however, came to the conclusion that pensions were to be based on the minimum of the pay scale within the pay band separately calculated for each rank and not the minimum of the pay band itself. Accordingly, it quashed the clarification issued by the government and granted relief from January 2006. The CAT’s decision, however, was challenged by the government before the Delhi High Court.
The government also acceded to the formula as was being demanded by pensioners and interpreted by CAT and issued implementation instructions to the effect in January 2013. However, rather than granting arrears from January 2006, it granted arrears from September 24, 2012. The Delhi High Court has, however, upheld the CAT decision and held once the mistake was admitted by the government, it could not be applied prospectively.
Chandigarh-based lawyer Navdeep Singh says the judgment is in line with well established principles that once an anomaly is sought to be rectified, it needs to be corrected from the date of its inception and not any future artificially created date.

Telangana may be a reality from 2014

, by indianmilitaryveterans

The Home Ministry is deploying 1,000 additional paramilitary
personnel in AP to maintain law and order. Photo: G. Ramakrishna

A.P. Chief Minister, his Deputy, PCC chief asked to be in Delhi on Wednesday for consultations

As the UPA Coordination Committee and the Congress Working Committee, both headed by Congress president Sonia Gandhi, are likely to take a decision in favour of creating a new State of Telangana on Tuesday, plans are being worked out to form the 29th State of the country from January 1, 2014.

It is to be seen whether the new State encompasses two districts of Rayalaseema (Anantapur and Kurnool) or consists of only 10 Telangana districts with Hyderabad being declared as the joint capital for some time till Andhra Pradesh created and developed its own State headquarters. The functioning of police in Hyderabad will be brought under the Central government for some time.

Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy, APCC president Botsa Satyanarayana and Deputy Chief Minister Rajanarasimha have been asked to be in Delhi on Wednesday and make themselves available for consultation.

Informed sources said if everything goes well, the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Bill 2013 might be introduced in Parliament as per Article 3 of the Constitution after going through the formalities that include getting the views of the existing Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly.

A minister from the Telangana region told The Hindu that he was happy that everything was going in the direction of creating a new State and he pointed out that the UPA Coordination Committee might pass a resolution in favour of creating Telangana and “they cannot keep the resolution confidential. They have to announce it.”

Senior Congress leaders from Telangana P. Sudhakara Reddy and V. Hanumantha Rao appealed to Seemandhra leaders to cooperate with the party leadership and the UPA-II government, and accept the decision in the interests of Telugu-speaking population. “Let us continue to live as brothers and sisters,” they said.

However, Seemandhra leaders are still hopeful of thwarting the formation of Telangana as they claimed that UPA partners Farooq Abdullah of the National Conference and E. Ahamed of the Indian Union Muslim League were not in favour of the division of A.P. “Even if the Bill on Telangana is placed in Parliament, it will definitely get defeated with the support of the DMK, the AIADMK, the Trinamool Congress, the Samajwadi Party and the CPI(M),” a senior MP from coastal Andhra said.

The Bills relating to formation of Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand and Uttarakhand were approved by Parliament in August 2000 and the new States came into existence in November that year during the NDA regime.

I.T. Return - Income below 5 lac : No exemption this year

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Every salaried person with income above the taxable limit will have to file his/her return of income. Filing of return is mandatory this year even if total income is below Rs 5 Lac. Earlier there was a confusion whether an assessee will get the exemption of filing return if his income from salary is below 5 Lac. But CBDT cleared the air and stated that
 " The CBDT vide its earlier notifications had exempted salaried employees having total income upto Rs. 5 lakhs including income from other sources upto Rs. 10,000/- from the requirement of filing return of income for assessment year 2011-12 and 2012-13 respectively. The exemption was available only for the assessment year 2011-12 and 2012-13."
The department has also suggested taxpayers to take the advantage of electronically filing of returns.
 Click here for e filling return
"However, this year the facility for online filing of returns has been made user-friendly with the advantage of pre-filled return forms. These E-filed forms also get electronically processed at the central processing centre in a speedy manner. Hence, the exemption provided during the last two years is not being extended for assessment year 2013-14. Taxpayers are encouraged to file their returns electronically. E-filing is an easy, fast and secure method of filing of income tax return. Moreover, Digital signature is not mandatory for these taxpayers and they can transmit the data in the return electronically by downloading ITRs, or by online filing and thereafter submit the verification of the return in From ITR-V acknowledgement after signature to Central Processing Centre. The processing for E-filed returns is faster. "
Taxpayers who were seating idle thinking about the exemption of filing returns will have to act fast as the due date of filing return is only 9 days away, 31st July.
