Controller General of Defence Accounts (CGDA) Nand Kishore recently launched a software project ‘Sangam’ for defence pensioners in a function at its headquarters in Delhi Cantonment. Speaking on this occasion, he mentioned that the project ‘Sangam’ will provide useful Management Information System (MIS) to the financial planners in the Ministry of Defence. Project ‘Sangam’ is a software which will facilitate issuance of corrigendum pension payment orders (PPO).
This will address the demand from the ex-servicemen for issue of individual corrigendum PPO consequent to implementation of recommendations of Sixth Central Pay Commission. This software project is one step forward from the project ‘Suvigya’ which was launched in October last year on the occasion of defence accounts department day and is very popular among defence pensioners.
