Stoppage of use of abbreviations in the name of Pensioner/Family Pensioner in Fresh & Revision Special Seal Authorities and PPO
The Central Pension Accounting Office (CPAO) has received numerous cases regarding the name of pensioner or family pensioner that require clarification. Instead of using the full name, abbreviations have been utilized, resulting in a discrepancy in the details or names of the concerned individuals. This has caused difficulties for both the CPAO and PDA in authorizing and disbursing pension or family pension. The use of abbreviations by the PAO leads to a mismatch in data found in PPO/SSA/Bank accounts and other records. To prevent such mismatches, PAOs must mention the full name/details of the pensioner or family pensioner in PPO and revision authority as per their service records, without any abbreviation.
