New Delhi, Oct 6 (UNI) Minister of State for Defence Subhash Bhamre on Friday appreciated the Information Technology initiatives of the Defence Accounts Department (DAD) that are in tune with the government’s thrust on Digital India and e-governance.

The minister admired two initiatives of the department that include Defence Travel System (DTS) and Comprehensive Pension Package (CPP) for Defence Pensioners, which was announced in 2017-18 budget.

Speaking at a function to mark 271st Annual Day of DAD here today, Dr Bhamre said that he was hopeful that the department would meet the objective set out in the budget speech for the two projects.

Dr Bhamre assured that the Department was committed to reaching out to each and every pensioner ensuring timely and correct disbursement of pension to them.

Speaking on the issue of One Rank One Pension (OROP), Dr Bhamre said, the department has ensured timely payment of OROP to the tune of Rs 9,231.26 crore to around 20.42 lakh pensioners.

On the issue of DTS, the minister said, the Defence Travel System or e-Ticketing project of the department has done away with the most cumbersome management and control of the Railway Warrants.
