All Zonal Railways/PUs
Sub: Payment of revised pension including arrears with effect from 1.1.2016 to the pensioners.
The process of revision of pension is being carried out in the Zonal Railways/PUs as per the 7thCPC recommendations. Accordingly, revised PPOs are being sent to the Public Sector Banks disbursing Railway pension for commencing payment of revised pension including arrears w.e.f 01.01.2016 to the pensioners. The objective of payment of revised pension is complete only when the pensioner receives the revised pension from the banks.
You are therefore requested that the bank scrolls received in the Railway are verified once in a month to ensure that the payment of revised pension has been commenced in favour of those pensioners to whom revised PPOs have been issued.
