Quick and Accurate Disbursement of Pension to Ex-Servicemen

For information of Defence Pensioners

Government of India has taken a number of  decisions to improve the benefits of defence pensioners. The most  recent improvements are implementation of the 6th Central Pay Commission Report and further improvements as per Cabinet Secretary Committee’s Report.

2. In order to enable Defence pensioners to know their correct entitlement as a result of various Govt. orders,  the  Controller  General  of  Defence  Accounts  (CGDA)  has  developed  a software  called “Suvigya”.  This software requires some minimum inputs to be provided about the pensioner (e.g. date of discharge/ retirement, rank / group, qualifying service, date of birth, initial pension etc.).  On the basis of this information, “Suvigya” shows the changes in pension as a result of different revisions and the latest pension entitlements.  The software also provides for taking print-out of the result.

3. “Suvigya”  software has been installed in the offices of Rajya / Zila Sainik Boards and Defence Pension Disbursement Offices (DPDOs) in a phased manner. Defence pensioners can approach any of these offices (irrespective of where they reside or the agency from which they draw their pension) to know their correct entitlements through “Suvigya”.  In case they are not being paid their pension as per entitlement, they may take up the matter with their Pension Disbursing Agencies.



[] is not getting opened. The software “Suvigya” or something of same nature may please be introduced for all ex servicemen on confirmation of their identity through iafpc website or some better identification, so as to get any new ex servicemen policy can be approached without going to ZSB, etc.
