Sub: Non transfer of Pension files from banks to other PDAs.

This office is receiving representations from pensioners/family pensioners stating that they have submitted applications to their banks for transfer of their pension account to other PDA, however, banks are not transferring their pension account to the new PDAs.

In this regards, attention is drawn to para 3 of   “Scheme for Payment of Pension of Defence Pension’ by Public Sector Banks” which clearly provides that pensioner will have the choice to draw their pension from any PDA. Further in para 7 of above scheme, procedure for transfer of pension account from one PDA to another PDA has been laid down.   Similar provisions for transfer of pension account alongwith necessary supporting documents from one PDA to another PDAs  are available in  para 93.1,  93.3  and  94  of Defence Pension Payment Instruction 2013.

Non-transfer  of  pension  account  of  pensioner/family  pensioners,  if opting, is not only a violation of provisions laid down but also reason of cause of dissent in pensioner/family pensioner. It is, therefore, requested to transfer pension account of pensioners/family pensioners to the new PDA on priority as and when pensioner/family pensioner opts for the same.
