The scrolling heading says that "Pension for the month Feb 2014 is uploaded", where as the pension details of Mar 2014 is also available. The scrolling also requires an automatic update of the month when pension for the current month for all the DPDOs is uploaded. It may be stated that the credibility of any site also depend upon the real time updating of relevant information. Hope next month the update will be automatic after pension data for the month is uploaded. Perfection is not a small thing. But small things make perfection

In response to comments By: Brigadier C P JOSHI Retired, AMC, Udaipur, 2014-04-03 10:43:27: Sir, if you like, you may transfer your pension from Bank to DPDO Jaipur. The DPDO is crediting pension to the Pensioners' bank account through electronic mode i.e. NEFT/ECS on last working day of the month.

1. My PDA bank is SBBJ , UDAIPUR through a savings account. The Bank is unable to deal with my queries and complaints and telling for every query that their Head Office at Jaipur deals with all pensions ? 2. I want my account linked with DPDO Jaipur so that queries, complaints and timely crediting of dues can be done effectively. 3. Please advise.
