What to do now for Non-Payment of Arrears
Those who have received corrigendum PPO and their pension revised as per new OROP-2 Table, may not receive 1st installment of arrears till date. Such pensioners need not to be worried. I have checked the facts with the concerned nodal officer of SPARSH (Army Pension) and they have confirmed that the payment of arrears is an ongoing process and will be completed in phased manner. All applicable Armed Forces Pensioners will get their increased pension and arrears in due course, need to have patience. So, need not to be worried. Your turn will come soon.
