My self Satya Bijaya Dash. I am a software engineer working at Hyderabad. My father got retired from the government service as a commandant India Reserve battalion Koraput. He got retired on 30-Jun-07. He has worked in the Naxalite affected area in the Koraput district for 5 years.
After retirement he has to get the General Provident Fund (GPF) amount from the AG (Accountant General). Any how the GPF bill got passed from the AG. But upon contacting the Dist. Treasury Koraput, initially they have told that they didn’t get any sanction order. Then we have waited for 10 days and then upon contacting they have told that they got the sanction order and they will pass the bill.
Then they have told that the specimen signature of the concerned Accounts officer is not with them and they have rejected the bill. Upon contacting them again they told us that the specimen signature with us but as it is a huge amount we cannot clear the bill and asked us to contact AG to send the specimen signature.
Upon contacting the AG they have told that they have already sent the specimen signature to them and the Koraput treasury is drawing the amount with the same specimen signature for Koraput sp. Commandant 3rd bn and Commandant IRBN.
Now by saying the same thing to the treasury they are misbehaving us. My father has called up the treasury and wanted to speak to the treasury officer regarding this matter. But the reply he got is why you are calling every day 10 times and your son is also calling us 10 times a day? We are government servants and we can not attend these types of telephone calls.
Sir my only concern is definitely we are not responsible for this delay. This is a clear example of how the Treasury people are harassing the retired persons. Now we are not able to get the total savings of my father after retirement. Is this is the benefit of saving with the GPF. We are loosing almost 15000 rupees per month as interest. I have written mails to Dist. collector, Principal Secretary Finance and RDC Berhampur resulting no action.
Please publish this news on your news portal so that we will get the gpf amount.
Please let me know any other details of the officials and other things.
