PENSIONERS PORTAL: Shri MP Agnihotri clarifies


Dear Editor,

AIRIEF has been demanding for the ‘Pensioners Portal’ on the lines as it is provided for others viz. employees, Developments Officers, Agents, etc. where the pensioner may have access to the details like address, nomination, amount of pension paid, commuted value availed, date of restoration of commuted pension, etc.; in addition to other particulars like various forms and group mediclaim plocy, etc. What you have referred to is the part of ‘Down Load Forms’ where pensioner’s page is provided, which contains forms etc. for the use of pensioners and that is not the ‘Pensioners Portal’ we are demanding. Mr R B Kishore has been pursuing the matter for quite sometime. At a point of time, suggestions were also sought for by the dealing personnel at Central Office to make the Portal more useful; but however, the portal as demanded has not come to existence so far.

AIRIEF’s delegation has followed up the demand for aforesaid ‘Pensioners Portal’.

In my opinion, whosoever is working for the cause of pensioners deserve appreciation and admiration.

The team met with LIC management has discussed a number of issues apart from the portal. There would not be any immediate gains but such efforts are always welcome.

M P Agnihotri
