CAG finds deficiencies in defence pension system

The CAG has found glaring deficiencies in the defence pension system, including incomplete accounting of expenditure, and flaws in the authorisation process

New Delhi: The Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) has found glaring deficiencies in the defence pension system, including incomplete accounting of expenditure, and flaws in the authorisation process. In a report tabled in the Lok Sabha, the CAG said an amount of Rs6,831 crore was lying in banks at the end of March, 2016, due to procedural lapses.
The report said substantial amount of expenditure was not booked to the pension head and was lying under the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) suspense head because of the inability of the banks to furnish the pension payment scrolls. The defence pension is disbursed to over 25 lakh pensioners, involving an expenditure of over Rs60,000 crore every year.
The CAG observed that the process for authorisation of the pension involved several players and multiple stages which often resulted in avoidable delays in issue of the pension payment orders (PPOs).

“There was a need for review of the authorisation process, so that it is less cumbersome and less time- consuming,” it said. The CAG said the transmission errors as well as other mistakes in the banks, which account for nearly 75% of the pension disbursements, had resulted in numerous cases of underpayments and overpayments. “Based on test check for one month, cases of 21,434 pensioners were identified who were underpaid, amounting to Rs106 crore.

“Major reasons for underpayments were non-revision/ incorrect revision of pensions, non-restoration of commuted portion of pension, wrong revision of disability element, and non-revision of fixed medical allowance,” it said. __._,_.___

THIS IS AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE IN RETIRED BANKERS GOOGLE BLOG

Dear friends,
It is surprising that a land mark judgement delivered by the Supreme Court of India on 01 07 2015, Civil Appeal no. 1123 of 2015 has gone unnoticed and except for a brief letter from Shri S R Sen Gupta to IBA, no other union has taken any steps. The salient features of the judgement:

1. The bench has authoritatively ruled that Pension is a right and the payment of it does not depend upon the discretion of the Government. Pension is governed by rules and a Government Servant coming within those rules is entitled to claim pension.

2.The judgement has recognised that the revision of pension and revision of pay scales are INSEPARABLE.

3.The bench has reiterated that on revision the Basic pension cannot be less than 50% of the Basic Pension in the minimum of the Pay Band in the revised scale corresponding to the pre-revised scale.

4.The government CANNOT take a plea of financial burden to deny legitimate dues of the pensioners.

5.The Government SHOULD AVOID unwarranted litigation and not to encourage any litigation for the sake of litigation.

6. When pension is upheld to be a right and NOT A BOUNTY, as a corollary to the averment that revision of pension and revision of pay scales are INSEPARABLE, upgradation of pension is also a RIGHT AND NOT A BOUNTY.

THE JUDGEMENT IS BASED ON THE DECISION ON D S NAKARA CASE.

The above details are available in the latest issue of Canara Bank Retired Officer's Association Circular no 3/2016 dated 1st August 2015.
The judgement is very clear and I wonder how no one has noticed the important aspects and why no one has taken up the matter with the IBA/Govt.
Why no one has reacted to the judgement is surprising and perplexing.
While agitation is on why can't we take recourse to court also as Supreme Court advocates are offering their services. One ruling by SC that govt can't deny pension for lack of funds regarding OROP every year and VRS case

Dear Citizens

Forward this msg to a minimum of twenty people on your contact list; and in turn ask each of them to do likewise.
In three days, most people in India will have this message.v

This is one idea that really should be passed around.
For information of all.
