First they have to meet the dealing clerk. Either he is not present in the office, even if he is present, he doesn’t do his job properly. And, in due course, after running around for many days, a person is still not able to get his pension credited.

And he further assured that solution for rest of the problems will be find out very soon. In order to complete pending works of Estate Office on the spot camps will be organize in all sectors from July onwards.
