Integrated Headquarters Ministry of Defence (Navy), Directorate of Pay and Allowances has mentioned in their letter No.PN/9078/Policy/21 (ii), dated 29/06/2021 that a large number of grievances from the veterans are regularly being received to provide clarification/clarity on the amount of pension/family pension credited in their bank account on monthly basis. Veterans face problems as they are not being apprised by the banks on information with reference to Income Tax deduction, Dearness relief payment, DR arrears etc. on monthly basis. Further, they are always apprehensive that they are not getting their correct pension as no breakdown is being provided to them by the bank with reference to pension credited which results in regular rising of grievances by them.
