In unavoidable circumstances only, PAOs were allowed to process the pension cases manually to avoid delay.
It has been observed that PAOs are still sending manual authorities to CPAO even Where e-revision authorities could be sent under digital signature through e-revision utility.
Now, to expedite the settlement of revision cases in a time bound manner it has been decided to discontinue the processing of the pension of 7th CPC revision cases manually by PAOs except in exceptional circumstances where the Pension Revision cannot be processed electronically should be processed manually and forwarded to CPAO with counter signature of CCAs/CAs/ AGs/Administrators Of UTs With valid reasons.
All Pr. CCAs/CCAs/CAs/AGs/Administrators of UTs are requested to instruct their PAOs to process the revision authorities accordingly.
This issues with the approval of the competent authority.
