Subject : Indication of Aadhaar numbers in the Pension Papers of all retiring employees — reg.
The Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare has issued a revised format for the application for pension by retiring employees (Form 5) in which Aadhaar number is to be indicated, if available (Copy enclosed)
2. From the weekly report submitted by CPAO if is seen that only 37% PPOs carry Aadhaar number. The UIDAI reports almost 100% coverage for the 18+ age group, it is, therefore. unlikely that retiring employees do not have Aadhaar numbers.
3. It is requested that necessary instructions be issued to the Pay and Accounts Office that at Aadhaar numbers are captured in the PPO, if available.
This issues with the approval of Secretary (Pension),
( Vandana Sharma )
Joint Secretary to the Government of India
