Dear Sir
With ref to PCDA Circular No 561 dated 10 Jun 2016, it is clarified that benefits of broad banding of disability element of disability pension for retired/discharge cases are allowed only for those who have court verdicts in their favour and not for everybody. Please do not circulate false mailsconfuse others to notify that it is allowed

Happy for the immediate dissemination of this important Circular by PCDA. Hope all the affected Veterans take appropriate action by writing to their PDAs (DPDO, Bank,Treasury etc) and claiming their legitimate dues by enclosing copies of PCDA Circular No.561 and Corrg PPO for Disability Element (if held if not intimation from Record Office would suffice).

Let it fructify at the earliest.

With regards,

Vn.Sgt Rajendran
