New simplified Pension Form for retired govt employees introduced by Pensioner Portal

Pensioner Portal has introduced a set of new pension forms for retired central employees which simplifies the process of sanctioning pension and doing away with the requirement for submission of affidavits.  The new ‘Form 5’ has been brought for the benefit of pensioners and it will record all information on the basis of self-attestation by the individual concerned.  While changes have been made in a number of (other) forms, special change is being made only on Form-5.  The information to be filled in by retiring government employees is restricted to their name, address and bank account details.  In addition, employees’ mobile number and e-mail id if available is also being collected for ease of correspondence in future. These steps will go a long way toward reducing inconvenience of the individual as well as making the process more transparent.  Earlier this Pensioner Portal had issued proposed Common Nomination Forms for Nominations under Pension, GPF, CGEGIS, Commutation, Arrears of Pension Rules.
