Attention is invited to Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure Resolution No.11-1/2016-IC dated 6th July, 2017 on the above subject whereby it has been decided to revise the existing rates of following allowances for Pensioners:
Name of the Allowance
Fixed Medical Allowance
Constant Attendance Allowance on 100% disablement
These revised rates are payable w.e.f. 01.07.2017.
In view of the above, Heads of CPPCs/Government Business Departments of all the banks are requested to arrange to credit the pensions/family pensions to the bank accounts from the month of July, 2017 onwards, for the respective pensioners who are already being paid above allowances, with the revised rates without waiting for any specific/separate authority from CPAO for such Pensioners.
This issues with the approval of the competent authority.
