CONFUSION COMPOUNDED BY A NOTE IN THE ANNEXURE III
OF MOD LETTER DT.11.11.08
Please refer Annexure III, of MOD letter dt. 11.11.08 the Note at the bottom
Note 1. Rank means rank last held and not the rank for which pensioned.
The Annexure III, Table I shows the amount of pension to be paid to personnel below Officer Rank according to the Rank last held, the Group and the Qualifying Service.
The Note at the bottom of the Annexure III states that:-
1. Rank means rank last held and not the rank for which pensioned.
What does this note means?
1. Does this table show the amount of pension to be paid to the last held Rank and not for the Rank for which an individual has been pensioned as per the PPO in hand?
2. There are a number of cases in which the CDA(P) issues PPO for a particular rank in the meantime, the individual gets promotion to the next higher rank and discharged with that higher rank. Therefore, there is a difference in the rank last held by the individual before discharge and the rank for which he has been pensioned as per the PPO.
This Note at the bottom of Annexure III clearly states that the Table I service pension shows the amount of pension to be paid for the Rank last held and not for the Rank for which the individual has been pensioned as per the PPO.
It is therefore become necessary for the MOD and CDA(P) Allahabad to issue a clarification to the Pension Disbursing agencies to pay the pension as per the Rank Last Held as entered in the PPO and not for the rank which the PPO has been issued.
There are a number of representations sent to the Bank in this regard for payment of pension as per the rank last held. But there is no response from the Banks. The Banks continue to ignore the Note 1 and continue to pay as per the rank for which the individual has been pensioned.
Will MOD and CDA (P)
