Subject to the provisions of paragraph 2 of Article 21 (Government Service), pensions and other similar remuneration paid to a resident of a Contracting State in consideration of past employment shall be taxable only in that State.

Usually the tax authority should be dealing with tax and is dependent upon several factors, residence, taxes already paid and double taxation treaties.

Said this as soon as people started depositing pensions directly each month.. The 800k savings route is safe but those reporting directly bringing pensions in are literally signing a tax liability. 

I mean, why would Thailand just ignore that free revenue ?? 

Immigration officials are poor sources of Revenue Department and Foreign Ministry information. Those concerned about their tax liabilities should investigate their home country/Thailand agreements on taxation. Most pensions are taxed by the home country.
