INFORMATION THAT MAY BE OF INTEREST TO DEFENCE PENSIONERS AND THEIR SPOUSES/OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS
Inclusion of the DOB (Date of Birth) of Spouse in the PPO of the soldier's/airmen and sailors by using Aadhaar as a reference by the PDAs.
I understand that many widows are not getting the pension/arrears just because their Date of Birth is not reflected in the original PPO. Consequently they have to run around the PCDA (P), Record Office, AG Branch AHQ, the PDA with no solutions in sight.
I too faced the problem and suffered for the last two years. As a last resort I approached my bankers to include my Spouse's name in their system and they did it in a jiffy on my giving them my Spouse's Aadhaar number from which they got her DOB confirmed.
This information will be of help to all widow pensioners of the Armed Forces. More over all soldiers too can include their Spouse's DOB if they are not included in their PPOs.
