In the Government Order read above, the Pension / Family Pension and Retirement Benefits of State Government employees and teachers including employees of local bodies have been revised based on the recommendations of the Official Committee, 2017.

2. The Accountant General (A86E) in the reference second read above has pointed out that overpayment of pensionary benefits is anticipated in the event of furnishing wrong details and in the absence of Service Register, correctness of the pay fixation could not be ensured. Further on scrutiny of a few cases which have already been received alongwith Service Book for revision of pensionary benefits as per the present Pay Commission, it was found that mistakes have been made in the fixation (i.e.) confusion between level number and serial number of Pay Matrix resulting in wrong pay fixation, discrepancies in arrival, of increment etc. These mistakes have been made in proposals manually sent under the signature of the Drawing and Disbursing Officer. The percentage of error will be more if the details furnished in the soft copy which include inputs error in data entry. Hence individual pre-verification of pay fixation in each case is necessary and requested to issue necessary amendment to the Government Order withdrawing the procedure prescribed in Annexure-III and issue suitable instructions to all Heads of Departments to forward the revised pension proposals alongwith the Service Register of the Government employees who retired / died on or after 01.01.2016 for whom pensionary benefits have already been issued by this office after recording the revised pay as per G.O.Ms.No.303, Finance (PC) Department, dated: 11.10.2017 in Service Register for admitting revised pensionary benefits in a smooth manner.
