Taking up our promise to provide the best
possible services to the Jawans of the Indian Army, the PAOs under the
Organisation of PCDA Bangalore have whole heartedly put in their best efforts
to stabilise the Monthly Pay systems. I would like to thank all the Units/
Formations as well as the Jawans for extending their co-operation to the PAOs
in this regard.
I would further like to bring to the notice of
all concerned the next initiative of the PCDA Bangalore in reaching out to our
customers, who are the Jawans of the Indian Army. An interactive Meet with the
Jawans of the South-Western Command is being planned in the 2nd
week of Septí 2012, at Jaipur. This pilot initiative is aimed at educating the
Jawans about their monthly Pay entitlements, while also clarifying their doubts
on issues regarding Income Tax, Bank Accounts, publication of Part II Orders,
etc. This interaction will be conducted by a team of Officers from the
Organisation of PCDA Bangalore, led by the Additional CDA, and is being
organised with the active support of the South Western Command. I would request
the Jawans posted with the South-Western Command, whose Pay Accounts are being
managed by our PAOs to kindly attend the Meet and make it a success.
It is with a touch of sadness that I announce
that the PAOs have not been able to upload the Monthly Pay Statements of the
Jawans onto the Internet and our websites this month, due to certain issues
pertaining to Security clearance. We are hopeful of getting the same sorted out
at the earliest and start uploading the MSAs as soon as possible. However, the
MSAs have been uploaded on to the Websites of the respective Record Offices,
which are on the Army Intranet. Also the PAOs would be willing to provide the
information regarding Monthly Statements to individual Units on CDs, wherever a
Unit approaches us.
I, end, with a request once again to all
concerned to realise the importance of providing the correct PAN number to the
PAO, in order to enable us to upload correct IT details to the Income Tax Dept.
This fact may please be disseminated to all the Jawans, as it will enable them
to get quick and correct refunds from the IT authorities.
