<<<< SCOVA >>>>

A mechanism for consultation with, or representation by, the members of the Pensioners Associations


On the recommendations of Parliamentary Consultative Committee, DoPPW constituted a Standing Committee of Voluntary Agencies (SCOVA) in 1986. SCOVA consists of 15 Non-official members (5 Standing Group and 10 Rotating Group Members) represented by the Pensioners Associations from various Ministries/Departments/Regions/States etc. Official Members are representatives of various Ministries/Departments of Government of India. It is a useful forum for holding consultation with the stakeholders i.e the pensioners through their Associations and concerned Ministries/Departments. It provides the Associations an opportunity for raising their issues concerning pensioners’ welfare etc. directly before the concerned Ministries/Departments.
SCOVA functions to promote the following objectives:-
(i) To provide a feedback on implementation of process/programmes of the Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare
(ii) To discuss and critically examine the policy initiatives and
(iii) To mobilize voluntary efforts to supplement the Government action
It has maintained a healthy tradition of constructive discussion.
