Sub: Pension payment for the month of March 2015 through POSB functioning under CBS – regarding.
This Association of Postal & RMS Pensioners draws your kind attention to the fact that last year on 1st April, 2014 no payment of pension could be disbursed through POSB on the request of Infosys due to some technical problems in the CBS. In fact all SB transactions were suspended on that day. Many pensioners were made to return home empty handed without drawing their pension on that day.
This year 1st April is followed by two holidays on 2nd and 3rd April for Mahavir jayanthi and Good Friday and therefore any recurrence of previous problem on 1st April will cause heavy hardships on pensioners as they could not draw their pension until 4th April, 2015.
This Association therefore seeks your kind intervention to prevent any such recurrence this year and if suspension of all SB transactions on 1st April is unavoidable, then necessary instructions may please be issued to all concerned for effecting payment of pension on 31st March, 2015 itself irrespective of the fact that no payment or pension payment is normally done on the closing day of the financial year.
Reply to our email on the nature of action contemplated will receive our appreciation.
