Over 80 thousand pension claims pending since before 2016


Jammu, May 8: Pre-2016 pensioners still waiting for their pension as cases are being processed at a snail’s pace. Out of 1,03,632 claims, only 22,500 cases have been settled so far.

Jammu and Kashmir State Legal Services Authority (SLSA) today informed that it has taken up the grievances of pensioners with the Indian Audit and Accounts Department. The SLSA said it had received complaints from various quarters that the claims of the pensioners have been pending disposal from months together.

Accordingly, the matter was taken up by Mohammad Akram Chowdhary, Member Secretary State Legal Services Authority with the Accountant General (A&E) Jammu and Kashmir, to settle the claims of the pensioners at the earliest.

Indian Audit and Accounts Department has informed that the claims of the post-2016 pensioners will be settled by the end of July 2019, and 14,500 such cases out of 18,492 have already been finalized.
