Central Govt Employees to get PPO, other benefits on retirement day

Central Govt Employees to get PPO, other benefits on retirement day

New Delhi: The government has decided to give pension payment order (PPO) and all other retirement benefits on the day of retirement to all 50000 central government employees retiring every year, Union minister Jitendra Singh said on Thursday.
“The goal is to ensure 100 per cent payment of all retirement benefits and the delivery of pension payment order (PPO) to retiring employees on the day of retirement itself,” The Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions Jitendra Singh said at the inauguration of a workshop on ‘Bhavishya ’, an online pension sanction and payment tracking system for central government retirees.
“Last year of a retiring employee is spent in preparation of pension payment order (PPO) and collecting no-dues certificates as he fears no one will let him in after he retires. The reputation of a retiring government servants becomes such that he is preparing to get his pension on time. This is just not done,” Singh said
“Our experience shows pension payments are considerably delayed. Retirees need a dignified exit from service and can’t be expected to run around for their pension payment order (PPO) and all retirement benefits or make requests to someone for it,” said an official on this occasion.
Bhavishya involves preparation of advance list of employees retiring in the next 12 months and sending each such employee a login and password for ‘ Bhavishya ‘ portal eight months before the date of his retirement on his mobile phone and e-mail ID.

The Minister said apart from ensuring timely disbursal of pension, the Department is also holding pre-retirement counselling for employees and considering various options on how best to utilize the experience of retired personnel who can contribute a lot to the government and society as they are energetic and resourceful for long beyond 60 years of age.

11.23.167 A demand has been made for higher grade pay for Steno Grade-II from existing GP 4200 to GP 4600 and Sr.P.A Gr.I from GP 4600 to GP 4800 and GP 5400 (PB-3) after completion of four years of service. They have demanded the higher pay scale in respect of specific posts to bring parity with that of CSSS cadre posts. The demand has been justified on the ground that the mode of recruitment is same as for the CSSS, i.e., All India Competitive Examination with similar eligibility criteria and that all Stenographer of the rank of Steno Grade II and above working in the GNCT of Delhi have been recruited through Staff Selection Commission prior to Delhi Subordinate Services Selection Board.
