I have seen the mail from Sri CH Mahadevan in the last evening and the various posts in LIC PENSIONERS CHRONICLE today on the issue. We are used to credit of March pension on 2nd April every year. The March pension has been credited today, by afternoon of today, the 2nd April'16 in Kolkata (Four Divisions and EZO). Next year, it will be credited not earlier than 3rd April as 2nd April'17 will be Sunday.
The same problem occurred in 2014 but could be avoided after LIC RETIRED CLASS-I OFFICERS ASSOCIATION, Kolkata met the Zonal Manager and he issued instructions to the pension paying offices for payment of September'14 pension before commencement of Durga Puja festival.
