The applicant was retired as daftry from the services of Ministry of Commerce, Udyog Bhawan New Delhi on 31.8.1986. At that time his Pension Payment Order (PPO) Book No. 496 which was issued by the Pay & Account Office Ministry of Commerce was kept under custody of State Bank of India, Nirman Bhawan, New Delhi. The Bank was supposed to issue a copy of the P.P.O. Book to applicant but till today the same has not been issued to him even after 22 years of retirement life. Though the applicant has been seeking his pension regularly, every time the applicant approached the bank authority, they just informed that PPO Book has been misplaced during the renovation of Bank and gave a copy of the statement showing the record for pensioner I.D. as ascertained from the P & AO of M/o Commerce, such statement issued by the Bank is not sufficient for claiming family pension, if required, in future and only PPO Book is valid for that purpose. Several written or verbal requests from the applicant have not been entertained by the concerned authorities i.e. State Bank of India, Nirman Bhawan, New Delhi. Pay & Account Office M/o Commerce desired from the State Bank of India following documents for issuing the duplicate PPO:
1. A certificate, from the pension disbursing bank, to the effect that the pensioner has not been issued the pensioner's half of the Pension Payment Order as the same has been lost during their office renovation.
2.The photocopy of the disburser portion (Green Book of the PPO) so that the duplicate PPO of the pensioner portion can be prepared.
