Subject: Important instructions with regard to Pension Module on PFMS Portal change of Gratuity Recovery Head Details in Pension Module by PAO user
In continuation to this office OM No. I-95/4/2020-ITD-CGA(E 2554)259 dated 07/08.12.2021 on the subject cited above, it is informed that provision for change of Gratuity Recovery Head Details as well as Grant Head for a particular pension case under Pension Module due to closure of financial year has been provided for PAO users in their respective Login ID.
2. This functionality to change Gratuity Recovery Head as well as Grant Head has been provided to accommodate for the following scenarios being faced by PAO users in the pension module, after they have Digitally Signed the PPO, where the gratuity recovery head and/or grant head stand changed in the next Financial Year.
Scenario A: Landing failure of sanction
Sanction status in Pension Module is showing ‘Landing failure’ then the possible reason for the failure could be “Recovery Head or Grant Head not found”
Scenario B: Returned by DDO / Lapsed sanction
Sanction has been pushed for Gratuity payment, but DDO has returned the sanction to PD or financial year has closed and sanction status showing “Sanction has been lapsed”
Scenario C: Yet to be pushed
PPO is Digitally signed, but Sanction has not been pushed for Gratuity payment and recovery head is available in the sanction and PAO is not able to push the sanctions now.
3. A user manual for this functionality is attached. It is requested that the PAOs may refer to the same for ensuring appropriate action required at each level for such scenarios. It is also requested that PAOs may first map deduct recovery functional head for current financial year with at least zero budget and approve it.
This issues with the approval of competent authority.
