However, there was no mention about applicability of above instruction to defence pensioners/family pensioners. Therefore, a clarification in this regard was sought from the Ministry, who has now advised, vide F.No. 7/124/2014-BOA dt. 23rd Aug 2016 to the CEOs of all PSBs to ensure recording of PPO numbers in the bank pass books of Defence pensioner/family pensioners.

Each & every defence personnel should be given 1st PRIORITY ON FAST TRACK BASIS. Any complain is to be resolved immediately as soon as possible. Ex-serviceman now humiliated at every stage after retirement in searching of further service, dispute problem of land, house, neighbours, getting school admission of children in school & college etc. Govt. to reform and look in the matter of personal grievances of defence personnel for quick disposal of their problems & welfare.
