It has come to the notice of this office that payment of pension is getting delayed due to delay in dispatch of PPOs to the Pension Disbursing Agencies by the Record Offices. It has also come to the notice that delay is occurring at the end of Pension Disbursing Agencies too in disbursement of first payment of pensionary awards. Revised pension after issue of corrigendum PPOs also needs to be paid expeditiously by completing necessary action at the end of ROs and PDAs.
2. The matter was taken up with the ministry and PMO office by some pensioners and it has been desired that payment of pensionary benefits may be released without delay and time taken in dispatch/ processing of PPOs may be minimized.
3. In view of above, all ROs and PDAs are requested to avoid delay in dispatch/ processing of PPOs, so that DCRG, Commuted value of pension, pension in case of 1st payment and revised pension in the case of corrigendum may be credited to the pensioner’s account immediately.
4. This circular has been uploaded on this office website www.pcdapension.nic.in for dissemination to all alongwith Defence pensioners, Pension Disbursing Agencies and Record offices (ROs).
