Dear Sir / Madam


Recording of PPO Number in the passbook of Pensioners / Family
Pensioners 
 
As you are aware, it has been decided to record the PPO number in all the
pension passbooks of the pensioners/family pensioners issued to them. This
is to alleviate the difficulties reported by pensioners/family pensioners
to get duplicate Pension Payment Orders (PPO) in case of missing of
original PPO, transfer of pension account from one bank/branch to another
bank/branch, commencement of family pension to spouse or dependent children
after the death of pensioner, etc. in the absence of ready availability of
PPO numbers. 
2. Necessary instructions in this regard have already been issued to all
authorised banks by the Central Pension Accounting Office vide their Office
Memorandum CPAO/Tech/Clarifications/P&PW/2014-15/426-497 dated
September 17, 2014 (click here to view/download) and Office of Principal Controller of Defence Accounts
(Pension) vide their Circular No. 185 dated November 28, 2016 (copies
enclosed). 
3. However, it has been noticed that a few agency banks have not yet
implemented the instructions in all their branches. Accordingly all agency
banks are advised to record the PPO numbers on the passbook of
pensioners/family pensioners. 
Yours faithfully
