LAWDA blocks pension of its employee without genuine reasons
By: Tariq Shah VOV
Even after Khalida Banoo retired as field assistant in LAWDA in the year 2014, now we are already at the end of the year 2020, and she is still moving from pillar to post to get her pension dues and even has knocked the doors of justice.
Khalida Banoo is suffering because of bureaucratic red tape and lethargy in the system as the LAWDA in its communications with the office of accountant general has been saying that they have yet to recognize a head under which they can sanction her pension dues.
The delay finally forced her to move to JK High Court and after pleading in the court through her lawyer. In reference to the court order, AG Office of Srinagar through a communication dated 30-10-2016 to vice chairman LAWDA has asked for certain explanations from the authorities so that they can do the further processing of the case.
Referring to the court order dated 28-06-2016, AG Office in its letter has asked from the LAWDA a copy of government order under which the pension has been sanctioned by the government in favor of the retiree.
Pension forms etc. are signed by the administration department by the JK government and also the major head of the account to which the recovery if any is to be credited.
The pensioner is still waiting for the LAWDA to hold the meeting and answer the queries of the AG Office so that she can get her pension dues without any further delay.
She has appealed to Lt. Governor Manoj Sinha to intervene in her case and direct LAWDA to complete the formalities and queries of the AG Office so that she is not left to suffer any further.
