Sub: Co-Authorization of Family Pension of permanently disabled children/ dependent parents and permanently disabled siblings.
Keeping in view the difficulties faced by permanently disabled children/dependent parents & permanently disabled siblings while commencing the payment of family pension to them after the death of pensioner. DPPW has decided to co-authorise such claimant with the pensioner if there is no other eligible prior claimant for family pension or with the last eligible child or claimant of family pension other than the spouse as the case may be vide OM No. 1/27/2011-P&PW (E) dated-01.07.2013.
Because in the present format of PPO booklet there is no provision to adjust these claimants, rGA office .1.12c inserted Part-IV to CAM-52 and changed sequence of later parts vide Correction Slip No.3 dated-07.01.2014. The DPPW order dated-07.01.2014 and Correction Slip No.3 to CAM has been made available on CPAO's main website i.e. www.cpao.nic.in under order DPPW Serial No.6 and at home page in the CPAO main website respectively.
All the Pr.CCAs/CCAs/CAs having independent charges are advised to take necessary action in the following manner:‑
i) Existing Pensioners:- Name of Permanently disabled children/dependent
parents &-permanently disabled siblings are-to be added in both the halves of PPO. For this purpose concerned PAOs are to issue amendments to the Special Seal Authority along with PPO booklet to CPAO, on receipt of details of such claimant from Head of Office, in Part-IV as per Correction Slip No.3 to the CAM. CPAO will instruct the CPPCs of the concerned bank through Special Seal Authority to place the same in the relevant PPO folder (physical as well electronic folder) for taking necessary action when the occasion arises.
ii) Future retirees:- All PAOs are supposed to prepare both halves of PPO booklet in the revised amended format. For this purpose they may add new Part-IV to the available booklet and change sequence of later parts to utilize present stock of PPO booklets and thereafter they may get printed new PPO booklets according to the new format.
Hence all Pr.CCAs/CCAs/CAs are requested to instruct their Pay & Accounts Offices under their control to follow the above mention procedure for authorization of family pension to permanently disabled children/dependent parents & permanently disabled siblings.
This issues with the approval of the competent authority.
