A LETTER ON DL-33 AND 7TH CPC IMPLEMENTATION BY JOSE MATHEW (NAVY VETERAN)
Saturday, 8 October 2016 8:34 PM
Very Respected Raksha Mantriji,
I have the honor to submit following for your kind attention please.
a) De Linking Of 33 years for granting minimum Guaranteed Pension - Pre 2006 Retirees
The veterns are well aware that, the responsiblity of mis interpretation of VI CPC recommodation lies with Dr Manmohan Singh Governement Who allowed to manuplate its own governments' resolution by removing the word minimum of the fitment table and amount so arrived linking to 33 years which was totally against the essence of VI CPC reccommendation.
After many civilians and veterns approached Hon Spreme Court, NDA government had to bear the cost of it.
However it is pain full to inform you sir, Ministry of Personal and Pension has issued the Office Memorandum on 6th of April 2016 and immediately on 8th of April 2016 Principal Controller of Defence account was kind enough to issue the implemention letter for civilians ( Cir C149 dt 08 April 2016). MOD/DESW has delayed the Office Memorandum for six months for the reasons only known to them, but PCDA even after passing one week from getting Office Memorandum from DESW have not issued the implementation letter. They were proactive in issuing implemention order for themselves but not bothered to do anything for Military Veterns.
b) VII CPC Implementation for Ex Servicemen
Sir for the reasons beyond your control VII CPC resolution for exservice men was also delayed till 30th Septemeber. (Civilians already got the payment and arrears in the month of August 2016). However even after one week of resolutiion issued by Depaertment of Exservicemen Welfare, PCDA did not bothered to issue implementation order.
It is prertaining to mention that, both above orders are very simple and MOD letter is self explanatory. PCDA has no reason to withhold the implementation letter. These orders are as good as issueing a Dearness Allowance revision.
Inview of the foregoing, I humbly request you sir, to review the role and importance of PCDA. Sir it is the time to ask PCDA why we need them. Most of us do not understand why PCDA should issue the implementation order when MOD already issued an office memorandum. No another Governement department has such dual sanctioning authority.
Since NDA government under wise leadership of Shri Narendra Modiji, is showing courage to change all the colonial formalities like dispensing off railway Budget/ changing financial year etc, I humbly request for considering review of role of PCDA. I sincerely feel their role should be limited to accounting and not policy making. No company owner will allow his accountant to make policy for him.
If the implemention order not issued before 10th October; Indian Military Veterns will be celebrating Deepavali with out VII CPC revision and benifit of de linking of 33 years service. We consider it is a reward given to us for protecting our nation.
Sir, I request your kind intervention to issue the implementation orders for above so that Veterns can have a joyful Deepavali.
Advance Deepavali Greetings to you sir.
