Subject: Crediting of enhanced Medical Allowance to the pensioners account by Banks.
During the workshop for banks on monitoring the pensioners grievances through “Web Responsive Pensioners’ Service” organised on 03.1112016 a query was made on requirement of Special Seal Authority for crediting Medical Allowance at the enhanced rate based on orders issued by DP&PW from time to time. In this context, attention is invited to Para 4.52 (copy of the extract attached) of Accounting and Operating Procedure for Central Pension Processing Centre of Authorised Banks for Pension Disbursement to Central Government (Civil) Pensioners issued in Feb, 2012 wherein it has been provided that CPPC should have direct access to the website of the Department of Pensions & Pensioners Welfare and Ministry of Rome Affair, so that these are regularly browsed and orders on Dearness Relief issued by various Departments are acted upon immediately.
CPPCs of all the banks are advised to follow the same instructions for revising the Medical Allowance of the pensioners already drawing the same as and when the rate of Medical Allowance is enhanced by DP&PW without requiring for any Special Seal Authority from CPAO.
