Sub: Change of name of spouse Smt. Simro Devi in PPO of Late Shri Man Mohan Chander, Ex-Asstt. — seeking advice of Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare- reg.
The undersigned is directed to refer to the Ministry of Statistics & Programme Implementation’s UO No. A-38012/1/2021-Ad.II dated 8/7/2022 and this Department’s ID Note No. 3(2)/2022-P&PW-7942 dated 17/5/2022 on the subject mentioned above and to say that the advice of this Department has already been issued vide ID Note dated 17/5/2022 as referred to above.
2. The matter has been re-examined in this Department. It is stated that: –
(i) There is no separate procedure prescribed in the CCS (Pension) Rules, 2021 or CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972 for change of name/surname in the PPO of Government employees or spouse after retirement. The PPO is issued on the basis of service record/service book of the employee and the maintenance of service book is concerned with DoPT.
(ii) Further, this matter was discussed in the inter-ministerial Review meeting of pending grievances in CPENGRAMS, held under the chairmanship of Director(PW), Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare. Ministry of Statistics & Programme Implementation were informed that they may follow DoPT’s OM No. 190016/187-Estt. dated 12th March, 1987 for change of name of family pensioner also. In case the Ministry of Statistics & Programme Implementation feels that there is some discrepancy in the documents submitted by the complainant family pensioner in support of her application for change of name in the PPO, they may sort it out with her directly and ensure that the request for change of name fulfils the conditions of DoPT’s OM No. 190016/187-Estt. dated 12th March, 1987.
3. This issues with the approval of the competent authority. hah
