Sub: Request for causing intervention for immediate payment of DR to Postal Pensioners - Misinterpretation of DOP Orders dated 11-10-2012 - reg.
This is to seek your kind intervention on the matter of misinterpretation of the orders of the Department of Posts issued vide No.F.No.100-13/2012-Pen Dated 11-10-2012 on the issue of follow up action on the proceedings of 21st meeting of SCOVA regarding payment of Dearness Relief to Pensioners immediately on the orders exhibited in the website of Pensioners Portal.
The said orders of the DOP was very clear to the effect that no such orders is required from any level of the DOP separately for effecting payment of DR once the orders are placed on the website of Pensioners Portal. However there appears to be some misinterpretation at some divisions [for example the Chengalpattu Division of Tamilnadu Circle] wherein it has been reportedly maintained that unless an order or instruction is received from the Circle / Regional Office, payment of DR cannot be effected to the Postal Pensioners.
This stand is contrary to the spirit and intention of the Department of Posts orders cited above and is causing some delay despite the Pensioners Portal released the orders of the Department of Pension and Pensioners Welfare regarding payment of DR.
Your kind and personal intervention to cause to set right the matter will receive high appreciation from our Postal Pensioners.
