OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Sub:- Stoppage of use of abbreviations in the name of Pensioner/ Family Pensioner in Fresh & Revision Special Seal Authorities and PPOs- reg.

Central Pension Accounting Office (CPAO) has been receiving various cases regarding clarification in the name of pensioner/family pensioner. Where instead of using full details/name of pensioner/family pensioner, the abbreviations are being used, which result in mismatch in the details/name of concerned individual and cause hardship to CPAO and PDA in authorizing and disbursing the pension/family pension. This problem arises due to abbreviations used by PAO, leading to mismatch of data in PPO/SSA/Bank account and other documentary records. To avoid mismatching of data, PAOs need to mention full name/details of pensioner/family pensioner in PPO and revision authority as per service records only and no abbreviation should be used.

  1. In view of above, all the Pr. CCAs/CCAs/CAs/AGs are requested to issue instructions to PAOs under
    their control to follow the above mentioned instructions for smooth disbursement of pension/family
    pension.

This issues with the approval of the Chief Controller (Pensions).

Sr. Accounts Officer (IT & Tech)
