  1. I retired on 31st July 2017 all my dues were calculated as per 6th Pay.I got all my dues only after writing to pensioners grievance cell in the month of December 2017 along with pension after 5 months . On blank form I was asked to sign without date by one clerk Mr Naresh from ACAO unit,Custom House ,Mormugao who at that time looked after the Pension work even though he was promoted as Examiner. As per rule are the con cerned Customs Department in Mormugao ,Vasco ,Goa not to pay any amount of interest for the delay and keeping me waiting for Five to Six months without monthly pension being a Cancer patient ,although the State Bank of India showed the pension paid every month which is wrong. Now we are not getting any benefit of 7th Pay as. Calculation was done as of 6th Pay . I request clarification from ministry and audit unit New Delhi . My email will not be published but my name is mentioned in this comment box and they come to know as only I have retired on that date.
