Sub: Change of name by pensioner/family pensioner

Attention is drawn to provisions contained in para 1201 of Chapter XII of IREM Vol. I, wherein procedure in respect of change of name by a Railway servant (in service) is provided.

One of the Zonal Railways has sought clarification/guidelines applicable on change of name by pensioner/family pensioner. The matter has been examined in consultation with Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare, and the Finance Directorate of Railway Board. It is stated that there is no separate procedure prescribed in the Pension Rules for change in name/surname in the PPO of the government employees or spouse after retirement. The PPO is issued on the basis of service records/service book of the employee. Necessary action in the matter may be taken in terms of provisions contained in Chapter XII of IREM Vol.1

This disposes off FA&CAO/F&G/NR’s letter no. 96/Adm/C/17/SRS dated 05.12.2022.
