Please refer above cited circular regarding implementation of project SPARSH under which it has been directed by competent authority that all types of claims of pensionary awards (viz.

2) In this regard, Ministry of Defence has conveyed that due to Non-adherence of timeline for processing of pension papers and non-issuance of PPOs in time creates further delays in sanction of retirement dues and other pensionary awards. The delay in issuance of PPO and further retirement entitlements cause unnecessary agony and hardship to the individuals and their families. This situation sometimes forces the individuals to float grievances or file litigations.

Also Read: PCDA Circular 658: Allowing family pension to other eligible family members in the event of family pensioner is charged with the offence

3) In view of the above, it is stressed upon to all concerned for timely submission of all types of pension claims to this office through SPARSH for timely notification of PPOs well in advance of their retirement/discharge to avoid further delays.

4) A copy of this circular is also available on the website of this office www.pcdapension.nic.in.
