Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare is responsible for formulation of policy and coordination of matters relating to pension policy and welfare of Central Government pensioners. It has been seen that despite detailed guidelines and instructions to the contrary a large proportion of retiring employees do not get their retirement benefits and the Pension Payment Order(PPO) in time It is likely that such retired employees find it difficult to get the process completed after retirement. The sanction process starts more than a year before the date of retirement and requires cooperation amongst various agencies. This department has, therefore, launched Bhavishya — an online pension sanction and payment tracking system, The system by keeping track of the progress Of each case introduces transparency and accountability. Both the retiring employees as well as administrative authorities can monitor progress at each stage.

In this, where necessary, they will assist the retiring employee to submit the online application form.

COMPACT till the Public Financial Management System(PFMS) is made operational and integrated with Bhavishya.

  1. It is a matter of great concern that the already retired pensioners do not get the revision of their pension from 01-01-2006 at 50% of their emoluments though orders have been issued by GOI and Spreme Courtof India. The PDA (SBT) says no Govt order is issued yet to revise or pay areas to them. WHO CARES THE PENSIONERS?
