Sub: Settlement of Retirement Benefits of NVS Employees on time – Reg.


It is being observed for quite some time that Retirement benefits are not released for years together despite specific guidelines(page 146-167 of compendium of circulars Vol. II) of Samiti for on time settlement. This, not only brings hardship to the concerned retired employees, but also causes serious embarrassment to the Samiti in terms of increased Grievance Petitions/RP applications/Court cases. In certain cases, Samiti had to pay interest on belated payments in compliance of the judgment of Hon’ble Courts.

This matter has been taken very seriously by the Competent Authority and it has been decided to initiate disciplinary action against the-erring officeris)/employee(s) responsible for not releasing the retirement benefits on time. It is needless to say that payment of CPF accumulation, leave encashment and gratuity has to be released on the date of retirement itself. In case approval of NVS (HO) is required for payment of gratuity in respect of Principals / officers of Regional Offices, the proposal is to be initiated well in advance.

You are therefore required to

(i) Review all pending cases of releasing retirement benefits

(ii) Ensure expeditious payment

(iii) Initiate appropriate action against officer/employee for belated payment

(iv) Report compliance to this effect to NVS HQ

Further, it is requested to provide the information related to pending cases of settlement of retirement benefits in the format attached on or before 10th July 2019 without fail.

Endl: as stated

Yours faithfully
(G. Arumugam)
Joint Commissioner (Pers.)/C.V.O.
