Sub: Inordinate delay in revision of pension of pre-2006 retirees
In spite of best efforts made by various authorities of civil Ministries/Departments, 28896 cases are still pending for revision for want of mandatory information like last pay drawn, scale of pay, qualifying service, date of death etc. especially after the issue of DPPW O.M. dated 28/01/2013.
2. The CPAO has analyzed the reasons of delay in revision of pension and arrived that the minimum pension/family pension (Rs.3,500/-) can be revised by the PAOs after confirming the name of the pensioner/family pensioner, PPO number, bank account etc. only as available in the e-scroll except the cases of pro-rata/absorption/ex-gratia and sharing of pension.
3. All CCAs/CAs are requested to review the status of unrevised pension cases in respect of their Ministries/Departments and instruct to their PAOs to finalize all above such cases in the light of the para (2) above and issue revised authority either through e-revision utility or manually within 15 days of receipt of this O.M.
This issues with the approval of Additional Controller General of Accounts.
