Early Times Report

Jammu ,Nov 20: - The Department of Pension & pensioners’ Welfare of the Govt of India has asked MD & CEO of the Jammu & Kashmir Bank Ltd. to urgently resolve the issue of releasing and crediting of the sanctioned enhanced Dearness Relief ( DR) in the bank accounts of Central Govt Pensioners and remove their hardship caused due to withholding it since 8th October.
A spokesman of the Central Govt Pensioners’ Welfare Association, Jammu (CGPWA) said here today that it has approached the Union Minister of State, Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pension, Dr. Jitendra Singh and the Chief Secretary J&K explaining that while all other Pension Disbursing Banks have credited the arrears on account of enhanced DR within a week of the 8th October OM sanctioning this DR to the Central Govt Pensioners but JKB has not done it till date.
Acting promptly on this request of the Association, Dr. Jitendra Singh directed the Department to direct the MD & CEO of the JKB to do the needful immediately.
Consequently, the Director in the Pension Department of the Ministry Dr. Pramod Kumar sent a letter to Shri Baldev Prakash, MD& CEO of JKB on 7th November seeking his intervention to put an end to the hardship of the Pensioners. He has clearly explained that their OM of 8th October did not require any further instructions to release the sanctioned DR to the central govt pensioners.
The Spokesman has expressed the profound gratitude of the Pensioners’\ Association, Jammu to the Union Minister Dr Jitendra Singh for taking prompt action on its representation on “unauthorizedly withholding the arrears of DR and not including the enhanced DR in pension of the month of October” and said that it reflected the working culture of Modi Government in general and Pension Department in particular.
He regretted that even after these directions, the J&K Bank has not yet credited the enhanced Dearness Relief into pension accounts of the Central Govt Pensioners whose entire financial burden is met by the Central Govt.
This inconvenience is being faced by the pensioners for the first time. The spokesman regretted the unresponsive attitude ofthe JKB and said that many of the Pensioners are mulling to close their pension accounts with JKB and shift these to the SBI or any other nationalized Banks where the pensioners face no such problems.
