dated 14 /02/2020

The Pension processing for BSNL and MTNL VRS 2019 retirees is being done in SAMPANN and FMS. The progress has been reviewed and in many cases pension papers in BSNL remain to be generated and many cases have not been received in CCA offices physically. In the view of volume of retirees and delay in receipt of physical records, it is anticipated that issue of regular PPO may take time.

2. Therefore, the approval of competent authority is hereby conveyed, as special dispensation, for payment of provisional pension ( 50% of Last Pay Drawn + applicable dearness relief) for all BSNL and MTNL VRS 2019 retirees (combined service optees) starting 1.2.2020 for a period of five months or till issue of PPO, whichever is earlier. Also, all concerned are directed to take necessary action for issuing PPO before 31st May 2020.
