Sub: Delay in Refixation of Pension to Pre-2006 Pensioners with less than 33 years of qualifying service – regarding.
Ref: Department of Pension & PW OM No. 38/37/08-P&PW (A) Dated 6.4.2016.
This is to bring to your kind notice that despite the issuance of orders by the Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare cited under reference for the grant of full pension instead of prorata pension for those Pre-2006 pensioners, no action seems to have been initiated by the Postal Authorities for re-fixing the pension to such pensioners so far. It is learnt that in the absence of endorsement of the orders of the DoP&PW by the Postal Directorate is cited as the reason for not initiating any action on the matter by the Postal Audit Authorities.
This is also worth mentioning here that some important orders of the Pension Ministry are not immediately endorsed by the Postal Directorate in the past also. To cite an example, the orders of FMA Revision from 300/- to 500/- was inordinately delayed by the Postal Directorate. Now the present orders on grant of full pension to Pre-2006 is also not endorsed in time by the Postal Directorate. This type of avoidable delay on the part of the Postal Directorate is causing much strain on the Postal Pensioners as they are forced to wait longer to get justice, despite orders by the Government of India.
We therefore urge upon you to kindly intervene to cause to issue the endorsement orders immediately with instructions for grant of revised pension w.e.f. 1.1.2006 suo-moto without any need for personal representations from the pensioners. Such a move will give benefits to thousands of eligible Pre-2006 Pensioners with less than 33 years of service.
An early action is highly solicited. Yours faithfully,
