Subject: 7th CPC pension Revision : regarding
A reference is invited to CPAO OM No. CPAO/IT & Tech./Revision (7th CPC)/19.Vol-III/2016-17/37 dt. 25/05/2017 regarding revision of pension under 7th CPC forwarding the prescribed format of SSA for pre-2016 cases to be issued by PAOs.
As per format various financial & non-financial details of the pensioners were required to be provided by the PAOs while revising the pension under 7th CPC such as basic pension, revised pension, last pay drawn, PAN No., Aadhaar No. etc. After issue of this OM various offices raised some doubts regarding essentiality of providing Aadhaar number and PAN number.
In view of the doubts raised, it is clarified that no field in the format is mandatory except those which are required to process the pension case.
Therefore, while it is advisable to provide Aadhaar number and PAN number of the Pensioners wherever available for better quality of database, no case for 7th CPC pension revisions should be delayed for the want of Aadhaar number and PAN number of the pensioners.
This issues with the approval of the competent authority.
