New Delhi: Government has kick-started a simple way for tracking sanction of pension sanction and payment online.
Central Government employee can track the status of the sanction of his pension online through a system named Bhavishya, which is expected to ensure complete transparency, and cut down delay in sanction and payment of pension and bring satisfaction to the retiring employees and pensioners.
The forms for processing of pension can be submitted online. The system keeps retiring employees informed of the progress of pension sanction process through SMS/E-mail.
Under the online system, progress of a particular pension case can be tracked by the individual as well as the administrative authorities for all actions preparatory to grant of pension and other retirement benefits as well as monthly pension paid after retirement.
As on date, Bhavishya is being implemented in main Secretariat of 83 Ministries or Departments and 17 attached offices involving 783 DDOs which are in various stages of processing pension cases of 4,066 retiring employees.
The web application has so far finally processed and issued Pension Payment Orders (PPO) in respect of 652 pensioners. In due course, all the DDOs in various Ministries/Departments and their attached and subordinate offices, numbering over 9,000, would be brought under the ambit of Bhavishya.
