Attention is invited to para 4.6.7 of the


Accounting and Operating Procedure for Central Pension Processing
Centre of Authorised Banks for Pension Disbursement to Central

whereby it has been provided that “The CPPC software will display on the
computer screen, options and view of the details of calculation of pension
and its breakup of the pension paid to the pensioner/ family pensioner. The
Home Branch will act as intermediary with the CPPC and, besides providing
accounts statement, provide to the pensioners the payment of TDS details,
pension slip, the Due and Drawn Statement in respect of each arrear and the
Annual Income Statement”. 
2. Taking into consideration the grievances reported by Pensioners’
Associations and Pensioners, CPAO had issued instructions to Heads of CPPCs
and Governemnt Business Divisions vide OM No. CPAO/Tech/Banks
Performance/2015-16/60 dated – 14.06.2016 for strict compliance of above
guidelines for providing detailed breakup of pension payments. 
3. It has again been reported by Pensioners’ Associations and Pensioners
that “arrears of arrear of Revision of Pension, Fixed Medical Allowance,
Additional Pension, Life Time Arrear etc. are clubbed with monthly payment
of pension for which it becomes difficult for pensioner/family pensioner to
understand if pension and arrears are disbursed correctly. Even recovery of
overpayment or wrong payment is not shown separately”. 
4. Therefore, banks are instructed to follow the provisions of CPPC
guidelines and instructions issued vide OM dated 14.06.2016 and provide
full breakup of pension payment clearly to the pensioners. A compliance
report in this regard may be sent to CPAO latest by 31.01.2017 positively.
