Subject : Updation of Master data and submission of changed information in Format-F for E-scrolls.
Attention is invited to this Office OM No. CPAO/IT&Tech/Master data/2015-16/298 dated – 25.05.2015 (copy enclosed) issued to all banks to update their master data once in a year by 31st January in the revised format of master data available at CPAO website www.cpao.nic.in at the link “Banks -> Guidelines for Banks -> Guidelines for Master data” followed by the report on “change of status of pension” in an electronic format-F along with regular monthly paid scrolls.
In spite of above instructions, Banks are not updating their master data regularly and not giving the changed information in Format-F along with payment scrolls (latest report of Master data Reconciliation bank wise is attached). This leads to data mismatch between Banks and CPAO which leads to underpayment / overpayment of pension and other financial / non-financial errors.
In view of above and as per the decision taken by competent authority, Heads of CPPCs/ GBDs of all Authorised banks are requested to update PDF Master Data of pensioners “quarterly” instead of “annually” for review and better management of Master Data. They are also requested to furnish the changed information in Format-F (version 2.8 also including Life Certificate date) along with each and every payment / receipt scrolls in future so that any subsequent change, required in master data, may be incorporated by CPAO itself.
To facilitate the banks, the guidelines for electronic transmission of accounting data under the CPPC system by authorised banks alongwith changed / updated Format-F have been provided on CPAO’s website www.cpao.nic.in.
This issues with the approval of Chief Controller (Pensions).
