    For the PSU absorbed pensioners, whose full pension has been restored by DPPW vide their OM dt. 23/6/2017, CPAO could have clarified its OM dt. 21/7/2017 that the OMs dt. 12/5/2017 and 6/7/2017 of DPPW are applicable for revision/ restoration of full pension under 7 th cpc. In the absence of such clarity, PAOs have processed the cases of absorbee pensioners at 2.57 times under 7 th cpc instead of as per OMs dt. 12/5/2017 & 6/7/2017 and CPAO has returned all such cases back to PAOs after keeping with them for about a month. With the result , the cases of revision/ restoration of absorbee pensioners are moving back and forth between PAO and CPAO, eating away the valuable time of the aged pensioners at the fag end of their lives. Honourable Supreme Court delivered justice to these pensioners on 1/9/2016 after fighting for a quarter century in various courts and even after 3 months of issuing OM dt. 23/6/2017 by DPPW , things are moving at snail’ s pace and God knows whether some aged and sick pensioners would see the light of the day during their life time.

  2. To avoid inordinate delay to issue Revised Basic Pension Orders the concerned P.A.O of departments should be permitted to issue Revised Basic Pension Orders as per Departments data with service Books. My department forwarded the on 7.7.2017 to P.A.O Chennai but so far Revision of Basic Pension as per OM dated 12.5.2017. not received by me nor concerned Bank. In view of number of pensioners are more it may not possible to issue orders by cpao
