Office Memorandum

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  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.

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub : Admissibility of House Rent Allowance in the event of non-acceptance or surrender of residential accommodation.

Ref: (i) NFIR's PNM Item No. 40/2012.
(ii) Railway Board's letter No. E(P&A)II-2010/HRA-2 dated 16/05/1988 and 08/12/2010.
(iii) NFIR's letter No. U5(c)/Part I dated 22/02/2016, 25/04/2016, 01/08/2016,04/11/2016 , 07/04/2017 & 19/06/2017.

Federation invites kind attention of the Railway Board to letter dated 08/12/2010 (RBE No. 176/2010) wherein powers delegated to the GMs and other HoDs directly controlling allotment of quarters to Railway employees for sanction of HRA in accordance with the provisions contained in Board's letter dated 16/05/1988 were extended w.e.f. 01/04/2010 to 31/03/2017. Reports received by the Federation reveal that the situations available in the field have not undergone material change, thus there is need to extend further these powers atleast upto further period of 10 years w.e.f. 01/04/2017. In this connection Board may also connect NFIR's PNM item No. 40/2012 and Federation's letter on the subject.
