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.
