*********** 
GoI, Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievance and Pensions, Department of
Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare has issued a CONCORDANCE TABLE vide O.M. No.
38/37/2016-P&PW(A), dated 6th July, 2017 for revision of pension of
pre-2006 pensioners/family pensioners based on notional pay fixed as on

table should be used to arrive at notional basic pay in the pay matrix of
7th CPC. 
3 Reference may kindly be made to this office circular no. C-164 dated
30.05.2017 wherein methodology for revision of pension consequent upon
issue of GOI, DP&PW OM No. 38/37/2016-P&PW(A), dated 12.05.2017 was
conveyed. Several queries in form of letter, email, phone calls are being
received for clarification of certain provisions of the ibid circular. It
has been decided, therefore to circulate such clarification through this
circular. Hence, topic wise clarifications are appended below:-1 
a). HOO Code
 (i) At Para 20 of the circular C-164 dated 30.05.2017, it was mentioned
that HOO code shall to be obtained by sending email to pcdapedp.cgda@nic.in in the prescribed proforma duly signed by Head
of Office (HOO) and Head of Department (HOD). It has been seen that request
for HOO code allotment is being received in this office in very sparse manner. Since, this code is mandatory for
preparation of LPC-cum- Datasheet and also for transmission of PPOs to Head
of Offices, it is requested to impress upon the Head of Offices functioning
under your jurisdiction to kindly forward the request for allotment of HOO
code immediately in prescribed manner. It is worthwhile to mention here
that the term ‘Head of Department’ refer to organization such as OFB, AOC,
ENG., DRDO, AF, Navy, DAD, Coast Guard etc. and Head of Office indicates
the Unit (say a Factories under OFB, a laboratories under DRDO etc.) which
are required to send claim for pension sanction/revision to this office. It
is also planned to soon modify existing LPC-cum- Datasheet which is
presently being used for processing regular pension claims for other types
of pension including superannuation etc. Therefore, timely allotment of HOO
Code will avoid any delay in preparation of pension claims. 
(ii) It may be kept in mind while filling HOO registration form that column
ORGANISATION should be filled with organisation code(asbeing filled in 1st column of existing LPCs) of HOD. For example if
HOD is Factory organisation then ORGANISATION Column shall be filled as : 01.
 
(iii) It has been observed that in some cases HOO Code has been allotted,
but the same isshowing error while filling LPC-cum- Datasheet through
Utility because the leading zero is dropped and then the code consists of 5
digits only. The utility has been updated and the revised version of the
utility is now available on this office website www.pcdapension.nic.in
b) LPC-CUM-DATA SHEET
 
(i). HOO Name (Column2):-
It has also been observed that in the field of ‘HOO Name’ name of officer
holding that appointment is mentioned. In this regard, attention is invited
to filling instructions of Column 2 which mentions clearly that the column
will be filled with ‘office name’ of the pensioners. For example if Govt.
employee retired from HQ CWE SHIMLA HILLS JUTGAON CANTT SHIMLA, this column
shall be filled as HQ CWE SHIMLA. In no case, name of the officer who is
Head of the Unit or appointed to act as HOO under Delegation of Financial Power Rules 1976 should be mentioned. 
(ii) In the field of PPO no., slashes ‘/’ are also being indicated. While
it is clearly mentioned in filling instruction that PPO no. should be
filled without slashes. For example if PPO no. is C/MISC/10250/2016, it
should be filled as CMISC102502016 . 
(iii) Date of Birth, Date of Appointment and Date of Retirement should be
filled in (MMDDYYYY) format. For example if Date of Birth is 5th February
1950 it shall be filled as 02/05/1950. Alternatively calendar facility
provided in the utility may be used. 
(iv) It has been observed that pay scale at the time of retirement is not
being filled in the corresponding column as provision mentioned under the
caption “ PAY DETAILS”. For example: if, Govt. employee retired under 4th
CPC in Pay scales 5900-200-7300 with last pay drawn 6100/- all columns from
4th CPC Pay Scale and onward should be filled properly. For example :- 
2. Reference of this office DO letter of even no. dt. 02/06/2017 is also
invited, under which it was requested to all HODs that a Nodal Officer may
be nominated who can be contacted for expediting the process and resolving
any issue which is encountered. Details such as telephone number, mobile
no., email –id etc. may kindly be intimated immediately if not already
done, by email to gograntonecivil.dad[at]hub.nic.in
4th CPC Scale (as 01.01.1986) : 31 (5900-200-7300)
4th CPC Pay/Notional Pay (as 01.01.1986) : 6100
5th CPC Pay (as 01.01.1996) : 29 (18400-500-22400)
5th CPC Pay/Notional Pay (as 01.01.1996) : 18400
6th CPC Pay Band(as 01.01.2006) : 4 (PB-IV)
Grade Pay (as 01.01.2006) : 10000
6th CPC Pay/Notional Pay (01.01.2006) without grade pay : 44700
7th CPC Level of Pay : L14
7th CPC Pay Index : 1
7th CPC Notional Pay (as on 01.01.2016) : 144200
(v) Basic Pension as on01.01.2016 (Column 29) It
has been observed that in some cases this column is filled with 50% of
notional pay as on 01.01.2016, which is not correct. Filling instruction in
this regard is very clear, this column is meant to reflect basic pension as
on 01/01/2016 as per pre-revised scale of 6th CPC. In other words
pensionary entitlement under 6th CPC should be multiplied by 2.57 and this
results need to be reflected in this column.

(vi) Name of PDA (Column 45) : As per filling
instructions if PDA is Bank (Code-9), then filling of Column no. 45 to 51
i.e. PDA Station, Name of Bank, Bank Account no., IFSC code of Paying
Branch and BSR Code of CPPC must not be left blank.
c) Vetting of Data Sheet
(i). At Para 20 of the circular C-164 dated 30.05.2017, it was mentioned
that in the annexed proforma of LPC-Cum-Data Sheet, the claim will be
forwarded along with all concerned documents by the H.O.O/H.O.D to PCDA
(Pension) Allahabad after getting it vetted from PAO/LAO attached. In this
connection it is clarified that it is not necessary to get LPC-cum-
Datasheet vetted by both authority i.e by PAO and LAO. Any one of the two
may vet the LPC-cum- Datasheet before forwarding to this office.

4. In view of the foregoing, Head of Departments are requested to issue
suitable instructions (along with copy of this circular) to all the Head of
Offices under their administrative control to ensure that claims on the
subject matter are floated in accordance with clarification given in above
Paras without delay. It is further requested that HOD’s may evolve suitable
mechanism to monitor progress in forwarding of LPC-cum-Data Sheet by their
sub -offices functioning as on Head of Office.
