OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Sub:- Issue of Identity Cards to Central Government Pensioners —reg.

The undersigned is directed to say that instructions were issued vide this Department OM No.41/21/2000 dated 16/11/2000 for issue of Identity Cards to Central Govt. Pensioners. These instructions have been reiterated vide this Department’s letter of even number dated 30th April, 2013.
2. Clarifications have been sought by various Departments/ Associations/ pensioners in regard to issue of Identity Card to Pensioners’. The matter has been examined and the position / clarifications are as under:
(i) Whether National Emblem or Ashoka Chakra is to be printed on Pensioners’ Identity Card to facilitate their entry into the Government Buildings. The pensioners are retired Government servants. The Identity Card only establishes the identity of the person and it does not confer any right on the pensioner to enter into a security zone. Therefore, it would not be necessary to have the National Emblem on their Identity Cards.
(ii) Whether Pensioners’ Identity Card can be issued to retired employees covered under NPS. The concerned Ministries / Departments may issue Pensioners’ Identity Card (PIC) to retired NPS employees. A revised format forPensioners’ Identity Card, for pensioners retiring under Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules 1972 (or other corresponding rules) is at Annexure I. A format for Pensioners’ IdentityCard for pensioners retiring under New Pension System is at Annexure II.
(iii) Issue of Pensioners’ Identity Card (PIC) to absorbee /pro rata pensioners. Instructions issued by this Department cover only the retired/retiring Central Government employees. On permanent absorption in a PSU , the employee severe their connections with the Government and are treated as employees of the PSU in which they are absorbed. Such absorbees generally do not require frequent interaction with the Ministry/Department where they were working prior to their permanent absorption. Therefore there is no justification for issuing Identity Card to PSU absorbees.
(iv) Issue of Pensioners’ Identity Card to Retired All India Service Officers. The pensioners’ Identity Card is issued by the Department in which the employee last worked. Therefore, in the case of IAS officer retiring while on Central deputation, the Identity Card may be issued by concerned Ministry / Department. In case of officer retiring from State Government, the Identity Card may be issued by the concerned State Government.
