Office Memorandum
Sub: Simplification of pension procedure - submission of undertaking by retiring
Government servant along with pension papers - reg.
'The Scheme for Payment of pensions to Central Government Civil Pensioners
through Authorised Banks', issued by the Central Pension Accounting Office provides for an
undertaking to be submitted by the retiring Government servant/pensioner to the pension
disbursing bank before commencement of pension. The pensioner undertakes to refund or
make good any amount to which he is not entitled.
2. It has been found that the first payment of pension after retirement gets delayed mainly
due to two reasons. One, the delay in receipt of intimation by the pensioner that pension
papers have reached the bank and two, delay on part of the pensioner in approaching the
bank for submission of undertaking.
3. The feasibility of submission of undertaking by the retiring Government servant along
with pension papers had been under consideration in the Government for some time. The
following simplification has therefore been approved with the concurrence of Department of
Expenditure, vide their I.D. No.130/E.V/2014, dated 24th February, 2014. The required
undertaking may be obtained by the Head of Office from the retiring Government servant
along with Form 5 and other documents before his retirement. This undertaking shall be
forwarded to the pension disbursing bank along with the Pension Payment Order by the
Accounts Officer/CPAO following the usual procedure. The bank shall credit the pension to
the account of the pensioner as soon as this Undertaking is received along with the pension
documents.
4. The pensioner would no longer be required to visit the bank to activate the first
payment of pension. Therefore, after ascertaining that the Bank's copy has been despatched
by the Central Pension Accounting Office, the pensioner's copy of the Pension Payment
Order (PPO) may be handed over to him at the time of retirement along with other retirement
dues. This should be feasible in all cases where the Government servant had submitted
pension papers within the time-limits prescribed in the Central Civil Services (Pension)
Rules, 1972.
5. An employee posted at a location away from the office of the Head of Office or
who for any other reasons feels that it would be more convenient to him to obtain his copy of
PPO from the bank, may inform the Head of Office of his option in writing while submitting
his pension papers.6. Office of Controller General of Accounts is requested to instruct all Pay and Accounts
Offices and all pension disbursing banks to follow the above procedure as well as make
necessary amendments to the pension sanction and payment procedures and the Scheme
Booklet.
7. All Ministries/Departments are requested to follow the above procedure
henceforth. Department of Posts and Department of Telecommunications are requested to
make suitable amendments to the instructions to the Accounts Officers and pension
disbursing Post Offices/Banks to adhere to the above procedure.
