The All India Pension Adalat was inaugurated on September 18, 2018 by the Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions Jitendra Singh in New Delhi.
The Pension Adalat, being organised by the Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare (DoP&PW), is one of the largest exercises for pensioners’ welfare ever undertaken by the Government as part of good governance dedicated to central government pensioners.
1. On the occasion, all the central government ministries would be conducting their respective pension adalats, in which on-the-spot resolution would be provided across the table to the grievance holder.
2. All the concerned stakeholders of the pensioner’s case including the department, pay and account officer, bank, along with the pensioner or his representative, will settle the grievance within the framework of extant rules.
3. This is a great reformative measure to get the grievances resolved in the quickest possible way by avoiding unnecessary recourse by the pensioners to Courts.
4. In addition to the central ministries, the offices of accountant general would be separately addressing the pensioner grievances of all-India service officers, in all the states across the country.
