     The Government has launched a drive to fulfil the backlog vacancies of Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and OBCs and Persons with Disabilities (PWDs). The number of backlog vacancies is 57947. The bifurcation is : SC- 15323, ST – 20301, OBC – 15323 and PWD – 7000. This follows review of the vacancy position in these categories by the Union Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances & Pension, Shri V. Narayansamy recently. All Ministries/Departments have been directed to fill up all the vacant posts in these categories by March 31, 2012.

     The Government has been concerned about non-filling up of large number of backlog vacancies reserved for SCs/STs/OBCs/PWDs. Two Special Recruitment Drives – one for SCs, STs and OBCs another for PWDs were launched in 2008 and 2009 respectively. The Drives enabled various offices to fill up about 26750 backlog vacancies.

Project ‘SANGAM’ for Defence Pensioners Launched

Project ‘SANGAM’ for Defence Pensioners Launched

          Controller General of Defence Accounts (CGDA) Shri Nand Kishore recently launched a software project ‘SANGAM’ for defence pensioners in a function at its headquarters at Delhi Cantonment. Speaking on this occasion, Controller General of Defence Accounts mentioned that the project ‘SANGAM’ will provide useful Management Information System (MIS) to the financial planners in the Ministry of Defence.

Project ‘SANGAM’ is a software which will facilitate issuance of corrigendum pension payment orders. This will address the demand from the ex-servicemen for issue of individual corrigendum pension payment order consequent to implementation of recommendations of Sixth Central Pay Commission (6th CPC).

This software project is one step forward from the project ‘SUVIGYA’ which was launched in October last year on the occasion of Defence Account Department Day and is very popular among defence pensioners.

The pension payment orders to be issued using ‘SANGAM’ software will be a special corrigendum pension payment system which will contain all the basic details of original pension payment order. It will also have details of family pension, disability pension and any other type of pension available to a pensioner. The new corrigendum pension payment order is unique in the sense that it gives new ID to each pensioner which will be helpful in readily accessing all data relating to a pensioner.

There are about 18 lakh defence pensioners who will be benefitted with the launch of project ‘SANGAM’ in the long run. It will also help in grievance redressal of pensioners with regard to the correctness of payment of pension.

The software has been developed in house by a team of officers from IT wing of Controller General of Defence Accounts, headed by Shri Murli Krishnan, Sr ACGDA (IT).
