All the Chief Secretaries of State/ UT Government,

Subject: Review of payment function of Group Insurance of All india Services through E-payment.


I am directed to refer to this Department’s letter No. 11024/1/99-AIS-II dated 9/10th March, 2005 regarding simplification of procedure for payment of insurance/saving funds to the members of All India Service on their retirement/death. Now the simplified procedure calls for the State Government to either make the payment of insurance/saving fund to the members of the All India Services and get the amount reimbursed from the Central Ministries controlling the respective All India Services for such payment or forward the claim of the retiring officers to the Central Government for payment.

2. Accordingly, the Central Ministries Controlling the respective All India Services are making payment to the member of service on his retirement/death after due verification of the bill with data of remittances maintained by their PAOs. However, of late, it has been observed that the State Government are sending bills for an amount exceeding of 25,000/- to be paid to the member of service against claim(s) like Group Insurance. etc. inviting avoidable remarks or returning of the bills from the controller General of Accounts, as the same being in violation of their extant guidelines in this regard.

They have recently return bills towards Group Insurance contribution of certain members of service emphasizing for strict compliance of its guidelines that no cheques are to be issued for and amount exceeding of 25,00/- towards any claim by the member of service. Therefore, such bills should be forwarded to the Central Ministries Controlling the respective All India Services along with requisite Bank details for making E-payment directly into the beneficiary account.
