Being it is End of Year and there is transaction holiday in Finacle on 1st April and subsequently 2nd April 2017 happens to be Sunday, payment of salary to the employees and payment of pension to the pensioners could not be effected through salary account credit/payments.
As per the Statutory rules of the Dept. and as per the reference (2) cited above pay and allowances are earned and shall be due for payment on the last working day of the month to which they relate and the pay and allowances for the month of March shall be paid on the first working day of April.
As per CCS Pension Rules 1972, it is mandatory to pay the pension on the last working day of the month and during the month of March, it is on 1st April of the year.
It is therefore requested to kindly cause suitable action in this regard and issue orders to the pay drawing and disbursing authorities, for making payment of the pay and allowances of the working staff by cash through Roll payment on 01.04.2017 itself and pension manually, instead of crediting the same into their PO SB/Bank Accounts on any subsequent date after 2nd April. This was ordered during the year 2015 and 2016.
