Ministry of Railways vide letter No. 2016/F(E)III/1(1)/7 dated 1oth August, 2016 (POVII No. 4/ 2016, RBE No. 97/2016) has brought out that DOP&PW’s O.M dated 4th August, 2016 is made applicable to Railway’s pensioner also. Copy of this letter is enclosed. Subsequently CPAO’s office vide Office memorandum N o. CPAO / IT &Tech/ Revision (7th CPC) / 19.Vol-III/ 2015-2016/ 109 dated 11th August, 2016 had directed all the Banks to start immediate action so that revised pension and arrears can be paid to the pensioners / family pensioners by 31st August, 2016.

As pension/ family pension paid under 6‘h CPC will provide basis for 7th CPC revision, Banks may ensure that present pension paid under 6th CPC is as per the amount authorized by the Pension Payment Order issuing authority of Zonal Railways sent to the Banks, so that instances of underpayments/overpayments may be avoided in 7th CPC revisions.

Information relating to payment of arrears arising out of 7th CPC recommendations may be reported separately in the e-Scroll being submitted to all the Zonal Railways.

As already brought out in the CPAO’s letter dated 11th August, 2016, there are possibilities that in some cases where revisions are still pending under 6‘h CPC which may be received by the banks later after effecting revisions under 7th CPC by them based upon the existing pension, they have to make provision in their software to revise these cases under 6th CPC at a later date and further required adjustments for 7th CPC revisions may be made by them accordingly.

Please ensure compliance of the instructions.
