In such cases action is to be taken by the concerned Pay & Accounts Officer as per provision of para 7.5.6 of the Civil Accounts Manual (copy attached).

DP&PW vide its OM No. 1/22/2012-P&PW (E) dated 10th July, 2013 (copy enclosed) has clearly defined the procedure so that nominees/legal heirs of pensioners/family pensioners are not subjected to harassment in claiming the payment of arrears of pension.

The Central Pension Accounting Office (CPAO) celebrated here today its 29th Foundation Day in the service of the Central (Civil) Pensioners.

Its functions include, issue of Special Seal Authorisations (SSAs) for pension payments to Authorised Banks, preparation of budget for the Pension Grant and accounting thereof, reconciliation with and performance review of banks with respect to pension payments and disbursements & maintenance of the database of the Central Civil Pensioners etc.

But while issuing instructions to PAOs vide CPAOs OM No. CPAO /IT& Tech/ Revision (7th CPC)/ 19 Vol-III/2016-17/37 dated-25.05.2017 inadvertently an important point “that these orders would not be applicable for the purpose of revision of pension of those pensioners who were drawing compulsory retirement pension under Rule 40 of the CCS (Pension) Rules or compassionate allowance under Rule 41 of the CCS (Pension) Rules. The pensioners in these categories would continue to be entitled to get revised pension in accordance with the instructions contained in DP&PW O.M.

Consequently, it has been noticed that some Ministries/Departments have revised the pensions of pensioners who were drawing compulsory retirement pension under Rule 40 of CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972 or Compassionate allowance under 41 of the CCS (Pension) Rules also and sent to CPAO. These cases are to be returned to the concerned PAOs by CPAO.

In view of the above, to avoid any further problems arising out of it, all Pr. CCAs/CCAs/ CAs/ AGs/ Administrators of UPS are requested to instruct their PAOs not to revise such cases.

This issues with the approval of the competent authority.

Subject: 7th CPC pension Revision : regarding

A reference is invited to CPAO OM No. CPAO/IT & Tech./Revision (7th CPC)/19.Vol-III/2016-17/37 dt. 25/05/2017 regarding revision of pension under 7th CPC forwarding the prescribed format of SSA for pre-2016 cases to be issued by PAOs.

As per format various financial & non-financial details of the pensioners were required to be provided by the PAOs while revising the pension under 7th CPC such as basic pension, revised pension, last pay drawn, PAN No., Aadhaar No. etc. After issue of this OM various offices raised some doubts regarding essentiality of providing Aadhaar number and PAN number.

In view of the doubts raised, it is clarified that no field in the format is mandatory except those which are required to process the pension case.

Therefore, while it is advisable to provide  of the Pensioners wherever available for better quality of database, no case for 7th CPC pension revisions should be delayed for the want of Aadhaar number and PAN number of the pensioners.

This issues with the approval of the competent authority.

The revised authority will be issued under the existing PPO number and would travel to the Pension Disbursing Authority through the same channel through which the original PPO had travelled.

3. Reference is also invited to Ministry of Finance (Deptt. of Expenditure) OM No.1(13)/EV /2017 dated 23-May,2017 mentioning procedural points of action to be taken by concerned agencies including Pension Accounting Authorities & PAOs.

4. To facilitate early revision of pension and monitoring timely progress in this regard as required by aforesaid OM, course of actions are brought out below:

i.List of all the live cases available in CPAO along with details of last pay [wherever available] due for pension revision under 7th CPC will be provided to the Pay and Account 0fficers (PAOsJ in their logins under CPAO website www.cpao.nic.in by 31st May, 2017 to provide the details to concerned Head of Offices within 3 days and coordinate with them for getting the revised pension cases at the earliest. PAOs/HOOs may also check their records to verify actual number ofcases.

ii.In the meanwhile, since all the service records/details of the pensioners are available with the respective HOOs from where they retired/died, HOOs are required to check their records and start revising the pension in terms of Para 4 of the aforementioned OM of the DP& PW forrhwith. Pr. CCAs/CCAs /CAs/AGs/Administrators of UTs may monitor number of such cases received at PAOs and submit a report to CPAO by 31st May,2017.

iii. For the expeditious revisions of these pension cases, CPAO has developed an e-revision utility which has facility of sending online revision authorities from PAOs to CPAO under the digital signatures of PAOs. PAOs are required to revise pension cases through e-revision utility. Since under this utility, revision authorities would be sent under the digital signatures, pension processing PAOs are urgently required to arrange digital signatures and their registration on PFMs, if not done so far. In unavoidable circumstances to avoid delay, PAOs may process the pension cases manually as hitherto and send the paper based revision authorities to CPAO in the format given at Annexure.

iv. The list as mentioned at (i) above will also be provided under the logins/dashboard of chief controller of accounts and joint secretary (Admn)/Adma in charge of the Ministries/Departments on CPAO website. Joint Secretary (Admn)/Admn in charge may also distribute the list of pension cases to the HOOs falling under their administrative control and monitor the progress of Pension revisions at HOOs level. similarly, Pr.CCAs/CCAs/CAs/AGs/Administrators of UTs may keep a watch on the progress of the revision of cases received from HOOs to PAOs.

v. To facilitate effective monitoring of progress of revision at each level i.e. CCA/JS(Admn)/PAO, relevant progress reports would be available on CPAO website under logins/dashboards of respective authorities. On the basis of these reports, periodical review meetings may be held at the Ministry/Deptt./Organization level.

vi. In those cases, where 2.57 multiplication method of pension fixation is beneficial under DP& PW OM No.38/37/2016-P& PW (A) (ii) dated 4/08/2016, revised pension authority under 2.57 multiplication methods will also require to be issued by HOOs/PAOs for updation of records at CPAO & Banks as well as for information of pensioners by CPAO. However, HOOs/PAOs while revising the pension may prioritize the cases which are beneficial to the pensioners under pay fixation method. To cover large number of cases, in less time Pr.CCAs/CCAs/CAs/AGs/Administrators of UTs & JS(Admn) of Ministries/Deptts./Organization may identify the cases where revisions may be effected easily without involving multiple steps e.g.revisions of pension of those pensioners who retired/died during the period from 1.1.2006 to 31.12.2015 and whose pension is already fixed under 6th CPC.

vii. Pr.CCAs/CCAs/CAs/AGs/Administrators of UTs may nominate a Nodal Person/Key Resource Person (KRP) to coordinate with CPAO regarding any issues related with pension revisions and use of e-Revision utility. In case of any difficulty in the use of e-Revision utility Sh.Davinder Kumar, Technical Director, NIC, CPAO may be contacted on Telephone No.011-26715338 and email-kumardavinder@nic.in. If required, officials of Ministries/Departments/PAOs may also visit CPAO on every Wednesday to resolve their issues related with pension revisions.

In view of the above, Pr.CCAs/CCAs/CAs/AGs/Administrators of UTs are requested to follow the above guidelines and issue necessary instructions to their PAOs for early revision of Pre-2016 pension cases under 7th CPC. They are further requested to Coordinate with their JS(Admn)/Admn in charge/HODs for timely submission of revised pension cases by the HOOs to PAOs and monitor the progress in this regard.

This issues with the approval of controller General of Accounts.

CPAO: Not required to visit the bank to activate their first payment of pension

Pensioners were not required to visit the bank to activate their first payment of pension: CPAO

Office Memorandum

Subject:- Requirements from pensioner for credit of first pension to his/her account by bank.

Attention is invited to CPAO’s OM No.CPAO/Tech/Simplification/2014-15/52 dated- 28.05.2014 whereby it was intimated to all concerned that pensioners were not required to visit the bank to activate their first payment of pension. It was also intimated that undertaking for recovery of excess/over payment of pension had been made a part of PPO. Inspite of these instructions, banks used to insist on pensioners to physically appear in the bank before commencing first payment of pension. Consequently, CPAO had issued instructions vide OM No. CPAO/Tech/Life Certificate/2014-15/99-175 dated-28.07.2014 that banks should not insist on the pensioners to issue life certificate at the time of first credit of pension. They were also advised to identify the pensioner with reference to information already available with bank obtained through KYC at the time of opening of bank account. The above instructions were reiterated by 0M No. CPAO/Tech/Bank Performance/2014-15/45 dated-02.06.2016.

However. it is observed that banks are still insisting upon the pensioners for completion of formalities like submission of life certificate, letter of Undertaking and certificate of non-employment to credit their first payment and other dues to their pension account resulting into inconvenience to the pensioners defeating the very purpose of simplifying the pension procedures.

In view of the above, Heads of CPPCs and Heads of Government Business Divisions of all the banks are advised to ensure that instructions issued by CPAO are followed by CPPCs and paying branches and any inconvenience to pensioners are avoided.

This issues with the approval of competent authority.
