Dear Sir

Today Gr Capt Phatak and self visited Navy Release Center and were able get 18 of the 22 sailors being released end this month.

More importantly we were able to discuss pension problems with Cmde Kulkarni and his concerned staff.

The following points came up
State Bank and PCDA asking for bribes for releasing dues of pensioners.Many complaints have been received by CABS in writing and have been forwarded to NHQ.There is no known action so far.
We have made a suggestion that Navy approach a bank with good all India print and negotiate with it for concessions and special handling if Navy were to give all pension accounts to that bank.This has found favour with Cmde Kulkarni and need to be followed up.
We were approached by a Dec 2009 retiree as he had not received his pension so far and tha banks were stating that they have not received the PPO.We were able to give him the details of the Branch which had received the PPO on 13 Jan.It appears again a case of asking for money to progress the matter.Cmde Kulkarni has taken up the matter with NHQ and has proposed that cheques for major amount of gratuity and commutation be allowed to be paid by CABS on the last date.With this it is hoped that no monety will be demanded for a small sum of pension due to the sailor.We need to push NHQ on this
We were surprised that the CABS had already implemented our suggestion of having Childrens details on the Discharge book and the present retirees were to get the amended Discharge book.
We also discussed about the changes required in the documents given to officers and were surprised taht our suggestions were easily accepted and in fact Cmde is trying to get one of his excellent officers to go to DPA to take up the matter of streamlining the procedures for officers.Understand this officer is waiting for the move for last 3 months.May be VAdm Ghose could use his contact with CNS to get Cdr DP Singh posted to DPA. He is bang on in line with us and is a very able officer who has done wonders for Release Center.
We were also able to get the enclosed documents copies (Not attached )

Dear Sir

Further to my earlier mail.

Pls read in continuation
It was learnt from the interaction with sailors that PCDA Allahabad is working on a Agent system and they do not do work unless one goes through the agents.
We handed over the enclosed document to Cmde for inclusion of points in his briefs to senior officers so that we may be able to create a ground swell of change from within the service
CABS has over 400 cases pending with PCDA Allahabd and the office is trying to get them sorted out through gifts etc.
We are off tmrw to Jath for a meeting accompanying us Col Bhagatsingh Deshmukh a native of that Village and the former director Rajya Sainik Board.

Brgds
