Sub: Simplification of pension
payment procedure-submission of certificates by retiring Armed Forces
Personnel along with pension papers.
it has been found that the first payment of pension after retirement
gets delayed mainly due to two reasons i.e. (i) due to delay in receipt
of intimation by the pensioner that pension papers have reached the PDAs
and (ii) due to delay on the part of the pensioner in approaching the
bank for submission of undertaking/non-re-employment/re-employment
certificate. In order to simplify the pension payment procedure, it has
been decided that required undertaking/status of
non-reemployment/re-employment after retirement may be obtained by the
Services HQrs/Record Offices from the retiring Armed Forces Officer and
Personnel along with other documents before his retirement.
