Pension Organisation in Indian Navy
Dear Naval Veterans,
Please make a note of following update:
There are basically three organisations which are dealing with the pensions details of which are given below:
(a) Naval Pension Office (Navpen): This is a newly created organisation which looks into the pensions of officers and Sailors. It is co-located with INS Tanaji and is headed by Logistic Officer-in-Charge of the rank of a Commodore. SO (Pensions) Officers and SO(Pensions) Sailors under him look after all pension matters. Issue of all PPOs and Corr PPOs are also coordinated by him.
For all queries regarding your pensions you can write to him directly. The address of NAVPEN is given below: The Logistic Officer-in-Charge Naval Pension Office C/O INS Tanaji Sion Trombay Road Mankhrud Mumbai – 400 088 Toll Free Number: 1800220560 E-Mail: email@example.com
(b) Naval Pay Office (Navpay): This old Naval Pay Office continues to disburse all terminal benefits to officers and sailors on release/retirement since Navpen does not have cash assignment.
Some of the records are still held by Naval Pay Office but eventually all the records will also go to Navpen at Mankhrud. In case you haven’t received your terminal benefits on retirement, you can write to Navpay keeping Navpen informed.
The Naval Pay Office address is given below: The Logistic Officer-in-Charge Naval Pay Office Shahid Bhagat Singh Road Mumbai- 400001 e-Mail ID: firstname.lastname@example.org Ms. Vandana Shetty, SAO 022-22687181
(c) PCDA (Navy) Pension Cell: The PCDA (Navy) Pension Cell is now located opposite Naval Pay Office and deals with issue of all PPOs and Corr PPOs. For all matters related to PPOs, Corr PPOs or corrections there of, you may write to them copy to Navpen, Mankhrud or write to Navpen copy to PCDA (Pensions).
The main Office of PCDA(Navy) is located at Cooperage near bandstand Mumbai but the Pension cell is now located opposite Naval Pay Office. The address is given below: The Principal Controller of Defence Accounts (Navy) Pension Cell Shahid Bhagat Singh Road Mumbai -400001 Tel: 022-22696139 e-Mail: email@example.com
(d) INS Tanaji: The Commodore Bureau of Sailors (CABs) at Cheeta camp, Mankhrud, Mumbai was commissioned as a full fledged establishment on 10 Jul 2012.
CO, INS Tanaji (old CABs) will deal with all matters of recruiting, Manpower planning of sailors and deal with transfers and promotions of all sailors.
The OI/C Release centre is merged with LOIC, Navpen and therefore all Release formalities of Sailors are also looked after by LOIC, Navpen including for Officers.
NHQ (PDPA) who was dealing with Officer’s pensions will now be looked after by Navpen only.
Veterans are therefore advised not to write to CO, INS Tanaji (Old CABs) on any matters pertaining to veteran officers and sailors.
The Navy has taken note of various difficulties faced by Officers and Sailors in receiving the Pensions through banks and CPPCs.
The Navy is planning to therefore establish a full fledged Navpen with cash disbursement authority. Once it is approved, Navpen will directly calculate the pensions and arrears and credit the amounts to the bank accounts of Pensioners/Families every month without the need for CPPCs. Till this happens, we will have to depend upon CPPCs.
