Normally the entry card is given only once to the pensioners after retirement.The format represented by change in address is to be designed to have a title over the reasonable benefit of Retired/Retiring Pensioners.

With spiralling price rise a revision in the ceiling is mandatory. Very soon one won't be able to purchase anything with the existing quota of rs 3,500
