New Delhi: Action will be taken against the officers concerned in cases of delay in processing payment of General Provident Fund (GPF) to retiring employees, the Centre has said.
The move comes after it was noticed that GPF final payment in many cases was not being made to the government servants immediately after retirement leading to payment of interest for the period delayed.
In an order, the Ministry of Personnel said in order to ensure timely final payment of GPF and to avoid unnecessary financial burden on account of interest, it has now been decided that every case, in which payment of interest on General Provident Fund becomes necessary beyond the date of retirement, shall be put up for consideration to the Secretary of the administrative ministry.
"In all such cases the Secretary of the administrative ministry or department will fix responsibility at all levels to take appropriate action against the government servant or servants who are found responsible for the delay in the payment of General Provident Fund," it said in the directive to all central government departments.
Senior Personnel Ministry officials also said there have been a few instances in which there were complaint of delay in giving final amount of GPF to the retiring employees.
Rules clearly provide that when the amount standing at the credit of a subscriber in the General Provident Fund becomes payable, it shall be the duty of the Accounts Officer to make the payment.
The authority for the amount payable is to be issued at least a month before the date of superannuation, but payable on the date of superannuation, the rules say.
The Centre had in 1996 dispensed with the requirement of submitting a written application by the retiring government servant for GPF final payment.
As per the rules, in case the GPF balance is not paid on retirement, interest on the GPF balance is required to be paid for the period beyond the date of retirement also.
Selection Process: Candidates will be selected based on competitive written exam & computer proficiency test.

LUCKNOW: Two members of a gang fleecing job aspirants were nabbed by sleuths of STF on Saturday. Those arrested were identified as Ram Praveen and Dharamraj Kumar, both of Nalanda, Bihar. The police also seized their two mobile handsets.
SSP STF Amit Pathak said the gang leaked results of exam for selection of multi-tasking staff and postman conducted by Indian Postal services on a fake website ahead of official results. Preliminary investigations revealed the kingpin Dharamraj used to make calls and ask for money promising selection and charged Rs 30,000 from each candidate for the post of multi-tasking staff and postman.
They had duped around 300 students giving them different bank account numbers to deposit cash and had amassed Rs 90 lakh. "We are probing their bank details and also of others associated with the gang," police told TOI.
The gang used to call up applicants who had scored less than qualifying marks and assured to increase their marks against payment of cash. The gang had leaked data of applicants and results from third party which conducted the examinations.
They had created a fake website of Indian Postal Department Examination Results and duped thousands of applicants and eventually the exam had to be cancelled. The exam was conducted by Indian PostalServices in December 2015, at Agra, Allahabad, Bareilly and Lucknow.
To win the confidence of aspirants, the miscreants formed a base in Nalanda, one of the most revered seats of learning in Bihar. STF inspector Abhinav Singh said the probe began when V K Gupta, vigilance officer of postal department lodged an FIR in 2016 regarding the fraud.
