Subject:- Payment of Salary to Central Government Employees on 29th May 2018 due to bank strike called by United Forum of Bank Unions.

It has come to the notice of this office that United Forum of Bank Unions (UFBU) has called for a nationwide bank strike on 30th and 31st May 2018. Banks are likely to remain closed on that days and even files for the e-payment of salary for the month of May 2018, which is due for 31st May 2018, may not get processed, resulting in delay in disbursal of salary to Central Government Employees.

2. All the Pr. CCAs/CCAs/CAs (Independent Charge) are, therefore, advised to consult their accredited banks in this regard and if any delay is foreseen in disbursement of salary on 31st May 2018 by the accredited banks, due to strike, necessary instructions may be issued to all the field PAOs/DDOs to upload salary payment files of Central Government Employees with NPB date as 29th May 2018 (last working day for bank, if strike materializes), and ensure that same reaches the banks latest by 25th May 2018.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Admissibility of air fare for children below the age of 5 years of the Government servants non-entitled to travel by air on LTC - clarification reg.

The undersigned is directed to invite reference to Department of Personnel Training’s O.M. No. 31011/2/2006-Estt.A dated 24.4.2006, 21.05.2007 and 03.12.2007 which stipulates that a non-entitled Goverment servant is allowed to travel by air while availing LTC provided that the reimbursement made in such cases is restricted to the train fare of entitled class. In this regard, it may be noted that while no fare is charged by Railways for a child below the age of 5 years travelling by train, airlines charge full air fare for child of 2 years of age and above.

2. This Department is in receipt of references from various Ministries/Departments seeking clarification on reimbursement of LTC claim in a situation where a child of a non-entitled Government servant, aged less than 5 years, travels by air on LTC and entitled train fare is claimed by that Government employee in respect of his/her child.

3. The matter has been examined and it is clarified that since children below the age of 5 years are not charged for rail journeys, no reimbursement shall be made in respect of the air journey performed by children, aged less than 5 years, of the Government servants who are not entitled to travel by air on LTC. It may be noted that this provision shall not be applicable for the segments where the air journey has been allowed to the non-entitled Government servants and their families under the special dispensation scheme, existent from time to time.

Office Memorandum
Subject :- Recovery of excess payment made to pensioners.

It has been brought to the notice of this office that some Bank branches are refusing to disburse the family pension to the family pensioners until and unless the whole overpaid amount is credited back to the bank. This issue was also highlighted in the Standing Committee of Voluntary Agencies (SCOVA) meeting Chaired by Hon'ble Minister of State of the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions.

In this context, RBI in consultation with Office of the CGA, Ministry of Finance, Deptt. of Expenditure has issued instructions for recovery of excess payment made to pensioners vide their Circular No. RBI/2015-16/340 DGBA GAD No.2960/45.01.001/ 2015-16 dated-17.03.2016 which is reproduced below:
a) As soon as the excess/wrong payment made to a pensioner comes to the notice of the paying branch, the branch should adjust the same against the amount standing to the credit of the pensioner's account to the extent possible including lumpsum arrears payment.
b) If the entire amount of over payment cannot be adjusted from the account, the pensioner may be asked to pay forthwith the balance amount of over payment.
c) In case the pensioner expresses his inability to pay the amount, the same may be adjusted from the future pension payments to be made to the pensioners. For recovering the over-payment made to pensioner from his future pension payment in instalments 1/3rd of net (pension plus relief) payable each month may be recovered unless the pensioner concerned gives consent in writing to pay a higher instalment amount.
d) If the over payment cannot be recovered from the pensioner due to his death or discontinuance of pension then action has to be taken as per the letter of undertaking given by the pensioner under the scheme.
e) The pensioner may also be advised about the details of over payment/ wrong payment and mode of its recovery.
The above uniform procedure may be strictly adhered to while effecting recovery of excess/wrong pension payments made to pensioners and necessary instructions may be issued to the bank branches to ensure that no branch may refuse the pension/family pension to the pensioners on the pretext of excess payment/ recoveries.

This issues with the approval of Chief Controller (Pensions).

Office Memorandum

Subject :- Non-acceptance of Nomination Form for Life Time Arrear (LTA).

It has been observed that Pension Payee Scheduled Bank branches are not accepting Nomination Form for "Life Time Arrear" on the pretext that their branch has not received any instructions from their head office.

As per para 23 of the Scheme Booklet on acceptance of Nomination Form for Life Time Arrears provides that where the Nomination for the payment of arrears does not exist then the Authorized Bank will seek instructions of the CPAO, who will in turn, refer the matter to AG/CCA/CA/Dy.CA for obtaining the requisite sanction of Head of the Office. As such, the claimant can also approach the Head of Office where the pensioner served before his/her retirement/ death.

Moreover para 4.5.7 of the Scheme Booklet clearly states that "CPPCs may ensure that the responsibilities assigned to Home Branches are enforced so that the pensioners are not redirected to CPPC for redressal of grievances and information needs. Necessary performance measures and monitoring mechanisms, in co-ordination with the respective administrative structures to achieve the desired level of service delivery in Home Branches as well as CPPCs may be instituted by the Bank."
This issues with the approval of Chief Controller (Pensions).
