PART II ORDER FOR ADDITIONAL PENSION
PUBLICATION OF PART II ORDER/POR FOR ADDITIONAL PENSION
All defence pensioners, specially family pensioners and the spouses of living pensioners are advised to get their Part II/(POR in case of Air Force) published through their record offices for proof of date of birth, otherwise the 20% additional pension on attaining 80 of age will be delayed.
Forward an attested copy of a Birth certificate, or school certificate or pass port or an affidavit from 1st Class Magistrate or an attested copy of the registration in panchayat to your record office with a request for publication of part II order and get it ready before attaining eighty years of age.
The Army HQ and the Record offices have done excellent work in providing Part II order to the needy ex servicemen to enable them to join the ECHS.
However lot more needs to be done in this regard. It is difficult to get attestation from a 1st Class Magistrate. You all know that how our judicial system is working. It is not possible for an ordinary Sepoy to approach a 1st Class Magistrate for such personal work. The judiciary is working under severe tension; as such they do not entertain such work at all. I therefore on behalf of thousands of veterans, request the authorities to wave the attestation requirement from the 1st Class magistrate, instead an affidavit from a Notary Public may be accepted for publication of Part II order.
Another area, is the production of income certificate to the parents. This is again a cumbersome procedure with the revenue department. A declaration from the veteran stating their parent’s income is less that Rs.2550, with a conditional clause will be more binding on the veteran than running around for such certificates from revenue officials.
Moreover, our veterans must be trusted by our own organization first. There are some veterans, who refuse to give any bribe for such certificates, could not join the ECHS till now. Accepting a self declaration in such matters will make the veteran more responsible and respectable in the society.
The difficulties stated above are some of the reasons for slow enrollment in the ECHS. We therefore request the MD ECHS and the MOD to review the situation and relax the rules in this regard. Banks should allow the local available age proof & release the additional pension.
THERE HAVE BEEN SOME PRESS REPORTS THAT THE GOVT. IS CONSTITUTING TWO COMMITTEES TO WORK OUT ENHANCEMENT IN PAST PENSION. SOME NEWS REPORTEDLY SAID THAT GOVT. IS CONSIDERING INCREASE IN PENSION FOR OLD PENSIONERS.
GOOD NEWS IS EXPECTED BEFORE 16TH MAY 2009. LET US HOPE FOR THE BEST.
