The concerned legal heir has to prefer a complaint to that Public Authority with a legal heir certificate complaining about the enitre details retirement benefits eligible but not paid by employer.

Also file application to concerned PIO seeking information again with Photo identity and legal heir certificate asking them to provide last drawn salary particulars and copy of procedure for claiming retirement benefits. It is not clear as to whether death is during service or after retirement. Let his son approach that employee's association and seek their guidance. It is too large an issue that can be provided in on line portal. Constant follow up at ground level with colleagues and interaction with higher authorities is a must.

First verify whether the retired employee or on his death his spouse or other eligible dependent filed the pension papers as per procedure of the public authority. If that is done, then follow steps suggested in post No.2 above. Else, fill up the required pension papers by retired employee or spouse or other eligible dependents. Normally, only retired employee, spouse, minor children and unmarried daughters are entitled for pension.

His father died during service period. His son only received GPF money of 2lakh. Main problem is that department has been closed by govt. All others get 4 lakh and their salary as compensation. We will file RTI, lets see what happens.

Is it not necessary to provide full details in stead piece mean to get entire information through one post ?

Which was the parent dept., that has undertaken reallocation and disbursement ? Now to whom you have to file RTI, when there is no dept., What about gratuity ? Encashment of leave ? which are to be disbursed immediately ? Who is prepared to pay that Rs.2 lakhs? Where is the service record preserved with such nomination? Whether employee expired during service when the dept., was functioning or after retrenchment like that. How and where the unclaimed money lie at present ? What about group insurance and compassionate appointment ? Is he originally appointed in that dept., or deputed from other dept ? Are these questions not important to find a solution ?

Do not post your query, first show him an ex employee and take his guidance, try to get the problem solved, and come to forum for help if the problem is beyond your hands.

      Hi,
      Need some clarity on how to draft the RTI for the information asked; Alternatively, please advice what other course of action to pursue?
       
      Background:-
      Case of Illegal Recovery of Pension by Public Sector Bank  (thereafter referred as PSB)
      1) The PSB, the pension disbursal bank mistakenly overpaid the pension to the pensioner for 10 years;
      2) No connivance or misrepresentation from the Pensioner; solely a mistake done by the Bank. 
      The over payment was detected via a CAG Audit, and the mistake of the bank as well was pointed out in the same audit
      3)Now the PSB has started recovering the Pension since last 3 years, illegally.
      4)No recovery order or show cause notice has been ever issued to the Pensioner by the bank or any competent authority
      5)This recovery is illegal as per Apex Court judgement on Rafiq Masih's Case- 
      which states that no recovery can be done after 5 years of continual overpayment
      6) The Pensioner has been forced to go to the court to seek redressal. Case is stuck in the court for the last 3 years
      An RTI Was filed in May 2018/ Information sought and response received are as under:-
      Q-2) Provide the list of all officials and their designation who dealt with this pension matter during Dec 2006 to Dec 2007 at CPPC and PSB Branch
      Q-3) Name the officer who responsible for sanctioning the excess pension
      Q-5) Please provide number of cases in your bank wherein excess amount of pension is being recovered
      Response received (for all three questions, above) from CPIO: As informed by the Branch Manager of your branch : Information is not available
      Q-4) Name the officer who is recovering my excess pension
      Response received : The excess pension has been detected by the Performance Audit Team  under CAG and adviced via audit memo 36 dated XX 
                           to recover the amount of 10 Lakhs which is over paid since  1. 1. 2007. As such bank is recovering now and refunding the authority.
      My Comment on Q-4:
      It doesn't give the name of the officer who is recovering excess. Plus: The Audit Memo from CAG does not talk about recovery at- all. This has also
      been mentioned in the affidavit by the pension sanctioning authority in the court where it states that CAG has not issued any order of recovery. So this response is misleading.
      Unfortunately I was not able to file the First Appeal to the above response.
      Should I file another RTI ? Is re-drafting of the questions needed? The bank is hell bent on shielding its errant officials and protecting them.  Please feel free to advise me on any other course of action as deemed fit. 
      Thank You,
      Andy

      NEW DELHI: The beaming face of Laxmi Devi says it all. The 80-year-old has finally got her pension after she'd almost given up hope, thanks to the Right To Information Act.
       
      Laxmi Devi lives with her daughter, who works as a domestic help, in Khirki village. In May 2005, she applied for an old-age pension to MCD. But despite numerous visits to the office, there was no sign of a pension.
       
      Finally, she approached an RTI camp organised by Satark Nagarik Sanghathan, an NGO. She was told her application was missing and she would have to apply again. She did. And promptly got approval for a monthly pension of Rs 350 in December. She will receive a cheque of Rs 1,750 (for five months) this month.
       
      Laxmi Devi is not alone. Ordinary people are now using RTI to get basic amenities, install road signage, repair roads and even get admission in schools.
       
      Sangeeta and Sultana of Begumpur didn't get their ration entitlements for over two years as their ration cards weren't being renewed by the Food and Civil Supplies Department. Though touts offered to help them for a ‘fee', they decided to take the RTI route. By November 2006, both had got their ration cards.
