Attention is invited to above cited circular under which format of e‐PPO in
respect of revision of Pension of Pre‐2016 Pensioners/Family Pensioners etc
in reference of 7th CPC has been circulated.
2. In the ibid e‐PPO revised rate of pension as on 01.01.2016 in respect of
Service Pension/Enhance Family Pension/Ordinary Family Pension and
Additional Rate of Pension/Family Pension has been shown in tabular form.
Simultaneously, in the last part of e‐PPO revised pension/normal rate of
family pension as on 01.01.2016 as per 7th CPC (Higher of A and B) has also
been shown in “BOLD”. Some Pension Disbursing Authorities have raised doubt
that rate shown in BOLD is applicable for both revised pension and normal
rate of family pension.

In this connection, it is clarified that in cases where rates of both
Revised Pension as well as Family pension has been shown in Tabular form
(Coloumn‐02 and Column‐03), rate shown in Bold is the rate of Revised
Pension, whereas in cases where only rate of Revised Family Pension has
been shown in Tabular form (Column‐03 only), rate shown below the table in
Bold is the Normal Rate of family pension. Hence, PDAs have to ensure
before making of payment that which type of rate of pension/family pension
(i.e. enhanced/ordinary) is payable w.e.f 01.01.2016 duly linking with
Original PPO and other relevant documents and payment may please be made
strictly in accordance with rates shown in Column‐02 (Revised Pension)
and/or Column‐03 (Revised Enhanced Rate of Family Pension or Normal Rate of
Family Pension).

For example:‐
Case‐01:‐
if Pensioner ‘A’ was drawing pension on 01.01.2016 and later died on
31.08.2016 and name of family pensioner has been jointly notified in same
PPO accordingly family pension will start w.e.f. 01.09.2016. In such case,
Revised Rate of Pension w.e.f. 01.01.2016 has been shown in Bold and
pensioner will be paid revised pension up to 31.08.2016 only and thereafter
Family pension will be paid w.e.f. 01.09.2016 at the rates notified in
Tabular Form i.e. Column‐03 (Enhanced or Normal, whichever is applicable at
the time of death of pensioner as per Original/Corr PPOs.)
Case‐02:
‐ In an another case if Pensioner ‘B’ already died prior to 01.01.2016 and
name of family pensioner has been jointly notified in same PPO and in
revised e‐PPO Revised Rate of Pension w.e.f. 01.01.2016 as per 7th CPC has
been shown in Bold based on the LPC‐Cum‐ Datasheet received in this office.
In such cases Pension Disbursing Authorities have to verify records and
only Family pension will be paid w.e.f. 01.01.2016 at the rates notified in
Tabular Form i.e. Column‐03 (Enhanced or Normal, whichever is applicable at
the time of death of pensioner as per Original/Corr PPOs.)

3. In addition to above, the following points may strictly be adhered to
before making payment based on 7th CPC Civilian Revision e‐PPOs:‐ (a)
Revised Pension/Family Pension and the payment of arrears on the authority
of e‐PPO should be made only if pensioner/family pensioner is/was drawing
pension/family pension from your branch/office against Original PPO number
shown in the e‐PPO. Otherwise, e‐PPO should not be acted upon and this fact
be immediately reported to Sr Accounts Officer I/C Audit Section of PCDA
(P) Allahabad.
(b) Cases where division of Family Pension is involved, rates shown in
Column‐ 03 (Revised Enhanced Rate of Family Pension or Normal Rate of
Family Pension) of e‐PPO is full rate. Hence, these rates may be
proportionately reduced as per Division percentage shown in Original
PPOs/Corr PPOs.
(c) Cases where family pension has been sanctioned to Dependent Children
and pension was payable up to date of attaining 25 years of age or starts
earning livelihood, whichever is earlier and such date falls after
01.01.2016. In such cases, revised family pension may be paid to family
pensioner only date up to which family pension has been sanctioned in
Original PPO/Corr PPO and or starts earning livelihood, whichever is
earlier.
(d) Similarly, in cases where family pension has been passed on to the next
eligible Dependent Child and PPO in his favour has been notified
accordingly and where date of commencement of family pension is any date
after 01.01.2016. In such cases, revised family pension may be paid to
family pensioner only with effect from the date from which family pension
has been notified in respect of the next eligibly dependent child.

4. It has come to the notice that PDAs are not linking Original PPO and
making payment of pension at the rates mentioned in “BOLD” at the last part
of the e‐PPO, which may cause overpayment. Therefore, all Pension
Disbursing Authorities (PDAs) are advised to review all cases where
payments are being done on the basis of above said e‐PPOs to avoid
overpayment in cases specially where family pension is payable at ordinary
rate/Enhanced rate with effect from any date prior to 01.01.2016(including
this date).
5. Further, e‐PPO format has been reviewed and the New/Amended format of
e‐PPO is also enclosed for ready reference.
