Modi Govt has 100 pc grievance redressal rate, Pension Adalat is a proof: Jitendra

Jammu: Union Minister in Prime Minister’s Office, Dr Jitendra Singh on Saturday said that the Narendra Modi led government has 100 percent grievance redressal rate and Pension Adalat is proof to it.
“The present government has a grievance redressal rate from 95 percent to 100 percent per week and the pension Adalat started a few years back is proof of it”, Dr Singh said after inaugurating ‘Pension Adalat’ and National Pension System (NPS) Awareness and Grievance Redressal Programme here at Convention Centre.
The Programme is being conducted by the Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare, Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions, Government of India.
The Minister also launched “Do You Know” Twitter Series on Family Pension, along with a booklet highlighting case studies with interpretation of Pension Rules.
Inaugurating the Pension Adalat, Dr Singh said, “this is the first time that Pension Adalat is being conducted outside Delhi as the government wants to reach every part of society, every part of country to get the pensioner’s grievances redressed in the real-time as aspired by the Prime Minister of India”.
Speaking about the grievance redressal system, the Minister said that the grievance redressal system was quite neglected before 2014 but the day the present government has taken to power, the system has completely changed.
The grievances have increased manifold from two lakhs to twenty lakhs which is evidence that the people have a complete faith on the present government, the Minister added.
The Minister also said that a number of reforms have been undertaken by the Government to facilitate the pensioners.
Highlighting the initiatives of the present Government, he said that one of the main initiatives taken was to fix the minimum pension at Rs 1,000.
He said that other initiatives such as Bhavishya, Sankalp, Jeevan Praman-digital life certificates, doing away with the obsolete laws and self-attestation, among others have also been taken.
The Minister further said that the Pension Adalats will help in on-the-spot redressal of pensioners’ grievances which will give right of “Ease of Living” to the pensioners.
Dr Singh also said that the Prime Minster Narendra Modi has directed that Pensioners be provided a hassle-free administrative system to resolve their grievances.
He further said that the retired population is increasing in India and it is in national interest to channelize their energies in a positive manner as this government takes them as an asset and not as a liability.
There should be smooth transition from their active life to retired life, he added.
The Minister also said that the real time portal, the dash board for the security personnel’s and a toll free number ‘1800111960’ started by the government is the proof that the present government is serious towards the welfare of the employees both serving, retiring and the retired.
The government under Narendra Modi performs with evidence and all the central schemes and programmes have been implemented in a very progressive manner in J&K like in other parts of India and the success stories of people are before you who got benefited under Ujjawala Yojana and Saubhagya Scheme.
Meanwhile in his address, the Advisor to the Lt Governor of Jammu and Kashmir, Rajeev Rai Bhatnagar said that it is good to see that this pension Adalat is conducted outside Delhi for the first time which shows the seriousness of the central government towards the grievance redressal mechanism.
