The Central Pension Accounting Office (CPAO) in India has issued an office memorandum directing the stoppage of using abbreviations in the name of pensioners and family pensioners in fresh and revision special seal authorities and PPOs. The use of abbreviations has resulted in mismatches in data in PPOs, SSA, bank accounts, and other documentary records, causing hardship to CPAO and PDA in authorizing and disbursing the pension and family pension. PAOs are instructed to mention the full name/details of the pensioner and family pensioner in PPO and revision authority as per service records only, without using any abbreviation. The memo has been issued with the approval of the Chief Controller (Pensions), and all concerned authorities are requested to issue instructions to their PAOs for smooth disbursement of pension and family pension.

Sub:- Stoppage of use of abbreviations in the name of Pensioner/ Family Pensioner in Fresh & Revision Special Seal Authorities and PPOs- reg.
Central Pension Accounting Office (CPAO) has been receiving various cases regarding clarification in the name of pensioner/family pensioner. Where instead of using full details/name of pensioner/family pensioner, the abbreviations are being used, which result in mismatch in the details/name of concerned individual and cause hardship to CPAO and PDA in authorizing and disbursing the pension/family pension. This problem arises due to abbreviations used by PAO, leading to mismatch of data in PPO/SSA/Bank account and other documentary records. To avoid mismatching of data, PAOs need to mention full name/details of pensioner/family pensioner in PPO and revision authority as per service records only and no abbreviation should be used.
- In view of above, all the Pr. CCAs/CCAs/CAs/AGs are requested to issue instructions to PAOs under
their control to follow the above mentioned instructions for smooth disbursement of pension/family
This issues with the approval of the Chief Controller (Pensions).
