Under Fundamental Rule 56, necessary provisions for Retirement on Superannuation / Compulsory Retirement / Voluntary Retirement have been made.

2. In the letter read above, the Principal Secretary / Commissioner of Treasuries and Accounts has stated that a standard form of order for allowing a Government servant who faces disciplinary proceedings to retire from service and to continue the action under ruie 9 of Tamil Nadu Pension Rules 1978, by the Appointing Authority, was prescribed in Government Letter Ms.No.35/N12012-1, Personal and Administrative Reforms (N) Department, Dated 03.04.2013. In Integrated Financial and Human Resource Management System, provisions have been given in the software, for sending pension proposal to Accountant General by the departmental authority online through Integrated Financial and Human Resource Management System portal and for forwarding authorizations for the payment of pension / Commutation / DCRG etc., to the PAO/PPOTTO/ATO of Sub Treasuries concerned and to the concerned DDO (for DCRG) by the Accountant General online. For making payment of pensionary benefits to a retired employee, “No charges pending certificate” is required. Also, “No due certificate” (if specified in AG’s authorization) is required. Now, after issue of pension payment order by Accountant General, these certificates are issued separately by the concerned departmental authorities and the same is sent to the Pension Disbursing Officer concerned. Only after receiving the above required certificates, payment of first pension and commutation of pension is made by the Pension Disbursing Officer concerned. This causes much delay in settling the pensionary benefits. it will be easier to the Pension Disbursing Officers and helpful to the pensioners, if the required certificates are incorporated in the retirement order itself, in the case of retirement on superannuation, compulsory retirement, voluntary retirement and medical invalidation.
