BREAKING ALERT : LIKELY PENSION PAYMENT WOES TO ARMED FORCES VETERANS
Dear friends and esm association's office bearers,
Please read carefully.
Many of you don't know soon CPPCs of banks will stop pensions probably from 01 Apr 2020 and centrally pensions will be credited to your account by CDA Allahabad only.
Presently 72 CPPCs by all banks and 50 DPDOs are handling 31 lakhs ESM pensioners issues. Now you will have one single CPPC at Allahabad handling all pension issues directly. I already posted ksb letter to RSBs .
DG CDA Allahabad proposed in lastyear to Govt, that he can save handling charges by banks by him doing the same job. Govt thrust upon, KSB accepted responsibility with out taking feedback from RSBs. All directors RSBs have opposed.
But Sec KSB felt otherway and not even conducted annual directors meet since 2017. ZSBs and DPDOs will act as pension service centres.
I told them pension is specialised, even in CDAs, people who gained experience only handle even in State or Central Offices. Now DGCDA Allahabad, wants ZSB clerks to handle and liase with them.
As ZSB clerk doesn't know including ZSWO on pension ( types and categories) maximum they will upload individual query and pray that your turn comes out of 31 lakhs ESM pensioners.
He even wanted ZSBs to handle Def civilians also. It may add another 12-13 lakhs. DGCDA wants to create own empire and must have claimed 24/7 call centre will be set up etc.
In my view, this done without taking feedback from any ESM associations including six nationally recognised ESM associations.
Unless, we all raise ESM difficulty to MoD/DMA under CDS, and through known Service Senior Officers and ESM Association's by sending written letters to appropriate Political Leadership, this damage will be difficult to retrieve.
Till 1990s, ESM used to get pension through State Treasuries and DPDOs. Then Bank System came and reasonably stabilized.
People who are convinced can take a pen and represent to Central Government Authorities.
Incidentally, the same DGCDA who said OROP is not fair and Heading the Committee on this issue. Please understand, he has direct link to PMO, hence top down approach in this issue.
My duty is to inform ESM and you can judge what is good for you.
You can check from other State ZSB staff , Colleagues and Friends, Retd officers.
