"After the launch of RODRA website, various types of Pension Payment Order (PPOs) issued by PCDA (P) from time to time to veterans has now been discontinued, thereby saving of manpower, stationery, and postal charges. The PPOs are now uploaded on the website and veterans are able to download it from the website. Monitoring and management of grievances of veterans have been streamlined, thereby improving satisfaction levels," the release added.
"The automation of the records of serving officers is also in progress. An application has been developed and is being launched on the internal Army Portal this month. This will facilitate serving officers to view their service and other records online as well as interact with AG/MP 5&6 on various records/documentation related issues," said the release. (ANI)
