Despite this, considerable number of pension cases of still pending for revision of pension have not yet been dealt with.
Some important information is required to make these revisions of pension. Due to non-availability of information like the pensioner’s last pay drawn, basic pay and scale, qualifying service, date of birth, date of demise, pension account number, and phone number, the work remains incomplete.
As per the 6th Pay Commission, pensions of all those employees who had retired before 2006 were revised from 01.01.2006 onwards, and a Ready Reckoner was sent to all the banks in order to calculate their pension. “7th Pay Commission soon to be implemented, to settle all these pending cases before so that while implementing the recommendations of 7th pay commission, pension may be revised expeditiously. we request your cooperation to ensure that the benefits reach all the pensioners without any delay,” the letter to the associations said.
The letter further requested the associations to instruct its members to submit their Life Certificates before November 2015, and update the contact information with details like current address, phone number and email ID, so that it will be easier to contact them or provide them with all the updates.
The secretaries and office-bearers of all the Central Civil Pensioners’ Associations have been asked to take steps to ensure that the members submit their Life Certificates to their banks and help address their complaints.
