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.

2. The Central Pension Accounting Office approached the Reserve Bank of India for obtaining their views on shifting of BSR code to IFSC for identifying the branch of the bank of the pensioner. The Reserve Bank of India has concurred to the proposal of CPAO for shifting from BSR Code to IFSC for identifying the branch of the pensioner vide their letter No.DGBA.GBD.829/45.01.001/2019-20 dated 14.10.2019.
