Sub: Continued delay in release of DR orders by the Ministry of Pension & Pensioners Welfare - requesting immediate action - regarding.
It is most unfortunate that the Ministry of Pension & Pensioners Welfare is yet to release the orders of enhancement of Dearness Relief to Pensioners in spite of the fact that the orders of the Finance Ministry had already been communicated to all Government departments and employees are drawing the increase of 6% DA. This Association is not able to understand the difficulties faced by the MOP&PW in releasing the orders as yet. This Association had earlier sent an email to the Deputy Secretary MOP&PW in this regard but there appears to be no progress in the matter. As of now no orders are released and the Pensioners are very restive all over the country. There should be a system to draw the periodical increase of DR to pensioners without delay as and when the Cabinet approves and the MOF issues necessary orders. This type of inordinate delay in release of orders to Pensioners is unjustified taking into account the delay causes mental agony to the senior citizens, whom are otherwise revered by the Government.
Hope this email would provoke immediate response and necessary action would be initiated to release the orders without any further delay.
