GRIEVANCES PERTAINING TO PENSION POLICY, PENSION STRUCTURE AND OTHER RETIREMENT BENEFITS
2.9 It was brought to the notice of the Committee that on-going pandemic has further caused delay in disbursal of pensionary benefits to employees who got retired during this pandemic as they faced difficulties in submitting their Pension Forms to the Head of Office or furnishing the hard copy of Claim Form along with Service Book to the concerned Pay and Accounts Office in time. The retiree belonging to Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) who usually are posted at different locations and whose Heads of Offices sit in offices of cities different from where their Pay and Accounts Office is located, faced more difficulties during this period. The Department should intervene in the matter and come up with a viable solution and apprise the Committee in this regard. (3.13)
2.10 After Inter-departmental consultations, the Department will come-up with a viable solution and apprise the Committee in this regard.
2.11 The Committee takes note of the reply and expects the Department to pursue the matter actively.
