Consequent upon issuance of Corrigendum PPO revising pension of Pre-2006

PPOs issued for implementing COURT JUDGMENTS like Havildar

the pension amount
indicated in the Sangam PPO.
If Sangam Corrigendum PPO is found to be for a Rank or
a Group lower than the Rank or a Group for which court order has already
been implemented, such Sangam PPO should not be acted upon. Instead,
please forward the necessary information as prescribed in Annexure-l
duly endorsed by PDA, to PCDA(P) Allahabad for checking and issue of
corrigendum PPO.
2 Territorial Army cases have been revised
treating as a regular
Army pensioner.
