         Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare is responsible for formulation of policy and coordination of matters relating to pension policy and welfare
of Central Governmenl pens,ioners. lt has been seen that despite detailed guidelines and instructions to the contrary a large proportion of retiring
employees do not get their retirement benefits and the Pension Payment Order (PPO) in time. lt is likely that such retired employees find it difficult to
get the process completed after retirement. The sanction process starts more than a year before the date of retirement and requires cooperation amongst
various agencies. This department has, therefore, launched Bhavishya – an online pension sanction and payment tracking system. The system by keeping track
of the progress of each case introduces transparency and accountability Both the retiring employees as well as administrative authorities can monitor
progress at each stage.

2.       The system has been running successfully in the main Secretariat of all ministries/departments for the last one year. It has since been extended to
cover over 3000 Drawing and Disbursing Officers and Pay and Accounts Offices from various ministries/departments and their attached offices.
3.       It has now been deided that all Heads of Offices will henceforth mandatorily process all pension cases only through Bhavishya. In this, where necessary
they will assist the retiring employee to submit the online application form. The Pay and Accounts Offices will process cases generated through Bhavishya
through the pension module in COMPACT till the Public Financial Management System (PFMS) is made operational and integrated with Bhavishya.

be delayed on account of electronic processing through Bhavishya.
5.        These instructins take effect from 1st January, 2017.
6.        This issues with the approval of competent authority.
