CPAO: Shifting from BSR Code to IFSC for identification of branch

पेंशनरों हेतु बैंक शाखा की पहचान करने के लिए सीपीएओ द्वारा जारी किए गए पीपीओ नंबर के साथ बीएसआर कोड का उपयोग किया जा रहा है। बीएसआर कोड पेंशनर को आसानी से उपलब्ध नहीं है क्योंकि यह न तो पासबुक पर छपा होता है और न ही संबंधित बैंकों की वेबसाइटों पर उपलब्ध है। इससे पेंशनरों के पेंशन मामलों को अंतिम रूप देने में देरी होती है

अत: सरकार द्वारा सभी प्रकार के पेंशन मामलों के प्रसंस्करण के लिए बैंक शाखा की पहचान के लिए बीएसआर कोड के स्‍थान पर IFSC से करने का निर्णय लिया गया है। एक कार्यालय ज्ञापन द्वारा सभी संबंधित को यह सूचित किया गया है कि बीएसआर कोड की आवश्यकता को सभी संबंधित पेंशन फॉर्म और संबंधित दस्तावेजों के साथ जमा करने के प्रावधानों में छूट दी जाती है।

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject : Shifting from BSR Code to IFSC for identification of branch


The BSR code is being used by CPAO to identify and map the home bank branch of the pensioners while processing the pension case with the PPO number issued by CPAO. BSR Code is not readily available to the pensioner as it is neither printed on the passbook nor available on the websites of the concerned Banks. This leads to delay in finalization of the pension cases of the pensioners.

4. The Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare has also received representations from the retirees to dispense with the requirement of BSR Codes from pension claim form as it is neither written in bank pass book nor available on the website of the concerned banks.
