Furnishing of Aadhaar mandatory for final settlement of Pension claims

The EPFO had extended the date of submission of Aadhaar Number authentication by the members of Employees’Pension Scheme 1995 upto 31st March 2017. 



However, news item appearing in few dailies suggested that Aadhaar is not required in settlement of pension claims.

Furnishing of Aadhaar is still mandatory for final settlement of pension and scheme certificate cases.

OROP: 99% pensioners will get benefits by January-end, says Manohar Parrikar

OROP: 99% pensioners will get benefits by January-end, says Manohar Parrikar



New Delhi: Defence Minster Manohar Parrikar on Tuesday said that around 20 lakh pensioners have been paid the benefits of One Rank One Pension (Orop) so far, and more than 99 percent of cases will be settled by January-end.
 “With that I think almost 99 percent of the eligible cases will be settled probably by January. One percent is not being able to trace them, probably dead,” the minister said.
Parrikar said he has “instructed all the agencies to go and find out such cases”.

Newly appointed Chief of Army Staff appeals army veterans to call off OROP protest





Newly appointed Chief of Army Staff appeals army veterans to call off OROP protest





Newly appointed Chief of Army Staff General Bipin Rawat on Tuesday appealed the armyveterans to call off their protest over One Rank One Pension (OROP) scheme while stating that government is trying its best to provide full assistance to them.
“I would like to appeal our veterans who are sitting on a protest at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar to go back to their home. The government is mulling over the OROP issue and trying to give our veterans full assistance,” General Rawat told ANI.
“As far as the OROP is concerned, our army chief veterans and ex-servicemen would have felt that the kind of assistance that they were expecting was not given. But I would like to say that our demand has been fulfilled to a certain extent,” he added.
Highlighting the initiatives taken by the Defence Ministry, Union Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar earlier in the day said that around 99 per cent of the eligible cases under the OROP will be settled by January 2017, adding that around 13,000 cases are sent to pension disbursement authorities.
Speaking at the Ministry of Defence’s ‘Swachhta Pakhwada’ event, Parrikar further said that during last two and a half years, the ministry through ex-servicemen cell has been able to settle many of the issues.
“OROP is one of the important issues. So far we have already paid the pension on the first or second week of January. These cases should be in total finality, 13000 cases are sent to pension disbursement authorities. Almost 99 percent of the eligible cases will be settled probably by January, one percent is settled yet as we are trying to trace them,” Parrikar said.
The OROP scheme, announced in September 2015, is meant to ensure equal pension to servicemen who retired on the same rank and after the same duration of service, regardless of the year of retirement.
However, retired soldiers have been alleging that the government has not addressed their concerns fully about the disparity in pension payments.

7th Pay Commission: Top 2 developments before Budget 2017 raise hopes for Central government employees

7th Pay Commission: Top 2 developments before Budget 2017 raise hopes for Central government employees



With the dust at least partly settled over demonetisation and the subsequent disruption at the finance ministry, there seems to be renewed cheer among Central government employees of a decision on allowances as recommended by the 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC). Two developments in this regard are worth taking note of, even as Budget 2017 is about a month away.
As has been reportedly earlier, the second amnesty scheme for tax defaulters – Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana, 2016 – estimated to net the Modi government a substantial amount, the financial outgo of Rs 1,02,100 crore no longer seems to be a hurdle.
However, the note ban decision and the spate of activities that followed the decision about raising allowances to the back burner made employees restive.
Now they hope the government will quickly move on the issue that involves about 47 lakh Central government employees and 53 lakh pensioners, of which 14 lakh employees and 18 lakh pensioners are from the defence forces.
While a website claiming to represent bureaucrats said that the finance ministry is likely to pay the enhanced allowances (possibly along with arrears) after Budget 2017 in February, another said that employees have sought a meeting with the ministry to resolve the issue at the earliest.
“Government is very pleased to pay the higher allowances to its employees after Budget. The acute cash crunch in banks and ATMs that prevailed for a month following the demonetization move of the government has eased from January 1, as the daily withdrawal limit from ATMs has been increased from Rs 2,500 to Rs 4,500. Hence, the Finance Ministry felt it would be wiser to announce of higher allowances after Budget,” the Sen Times quoted a senior finance ministry official as saying.
Another significant development is a communication by the staff side National Council of the Joint Consultative Machinery (JCM) seeking an early redressal of the issue.
“Almost four months have passed (since September 1, 2016 meeting) without any outcome. All the Central Government Employees are quite agitated as well as are having mental agony because allowances of the VII CPC, have not been implemented. You are therefore, requested to fix-up a meeting of the Committee on Allowances, at an earliest to resolve the issues placed in the memorandum of the Staff Side(JCM) on various allowances,” the letter read.
