Since disbursement of Central pension is handled by Banks, any upward revision in basic pension for which pensioner is entitled can be allowed by banks only after the receipt of revised PPO by banks from CPAO.
As far as Central Civil Services (CCS) Pension is concerned, revision of Pension Payment Order will have to be initiated at the level of PAO Office through which the retired / deceased employee was drawing pay. Once, pension revision requirement for a PPO is comunicated to CPAO, Delhi by the concerned PAO, CPAO, Delhi will revise the the Pension Payment Order (PPO) and communicate the same to Link Branch (Nodal branch nominated for revision of Pension for pensioners attached all branhes in particular Zone). Then the Link Branch of the bank will re-fix the pension based on revised PPO received from CPAO and communicate the same to branch in which the pensioner is having account and receiving the pension. So, if a pensioner finds that he/she is entitled for upward revision of basic pension she/he will have to communicate to PAO Office through which the retired/deceased employee received the last pay.
