RBI’s above instruction was also forwarded by this office to all banks vide this office circular N o. 128 dt. 13.07.2007.
Besides above, whenever any circular was issued by this office after 6th CPC implementation, Pension Disbursing Agencies were requested to send intimation regarding disbursement of revised pension to this office in the format prescribed with the circular concerned. Pension Disbursing Agencies were simultaneously requested to provide invariably a copy of the said format to the pensioner concerned.

However, it has been brought to the notice of this office that Pension Disbursing Agencies are not providing the details of revised pension/family pension to the pensioners/family pensioners. Thereby due to lack of knowledge pensioners are not sure about correctness of the amount of the arrears being paid to them and most of them have a sense of suspicion against the revision.
To overcome above suspicion, it is requested that an explanatory sheet as per the enclosed format may be provided to all defence pensioners/family pensioners invariably.
