Pensioners flay fresh circular of Finance Dept

Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, July 11: J&K State Pensioners Association here today has flayed the fresh circular issued by the Finance Department.
As per a handout of the Association the fresh circular says that the concerned pension sanctioning authority should submit the requisite information and data regarding the pensioners to the nearest treasury which shall forward the same to the concerned Sadder or District Treasuries. The Sadder or District Treasuries in turn shall be responsible for depositing such cases of pensioners and family pensioners to the office of Accountant General (A&E) Jammu and Srinagar for formal pension revision.
Association President Krishan Singh has said that the branches of J&K Bank from where the pensioners and family pensioners are drawing pensions every month should be authorised to receive the application forms from pensioners for onward submission to Accountant General (A&E) Jammu and Srinagar for formal pension revision.
He also said that it is very difficult rather impossible for the pensioners and family pensioners to move unaided because most of them are very old.
