    Please sir Send my New PPO Number
    My Address:
    Army No. 15374529A (Signals)
    Kulbir Singh S/o Girraj Singh
    VPO : Kaurali
    TEH : Ballabgarh
    Distt : Faridabad
    State : Hariyana
    Pin : 121101
    Kindly Request sir

  • Things are made easy for the retired personel thanks

  • This is good information. Civilians should not have the tag of defence if they…They should be assigned atleast 50% of the hardness in their jobs & responsibilities.

  • Anonymous 6 years ago

    This could have also shown the amount being distributed on a specific month to various categories to get a clearer picture.
    Is it correct that Defence civilians draw as much as 50% of the total pension distributed??
