(b) Payment of pension to BSNL pensioners through SAMPAN software. We extended thanks for bringing all the BSNL pensioners under SAMPAN for pension payments but explained some difficulties in completing KYP demanded by respective CCAs to verify the details. It has become difficult for all the senior Citizens to visit CCA offices to long distances. We explained that since all the required information are available in the PPO book then why this exercise is being done again. Member Finance DoT explained that it a very good software through which 95000 VRS optees retirement benefits were immediately paid and pension payments were made by next month itself. Now all the pensioners are being brought under this software for pension payments. Regarding difficulties being faced by pensioners in its implementation he will find out the status and will try to ease the system so that pensioners need not to run the CCA offices.
