Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions has recently introduced Electronic “Pension Payment Order” (PPO) in order to ease of living for senior citizens.
It has been implemented in consideration with the complaints from senior citizens about the original copies of their Pension Payment Order getting misplaced. In such situations, the pensioners, particularly the older pensioners, had to face several hardships.
The Department of Pensions and Pensioners’ Welfare decided to integrate the electronic PPO generated through Public Financial Management System (PFMS) application of Controller General of Accounts (CGA) with Digi-locker.
It’s like a privilege to several of the retiring officials who suffered during the lockdown period and were finding it difficult to physically receive the hard copy of their PPO. However, now it enables the pensioner to obtain an instant print – out of the latest copy of his PPO from the Digi-locker account.
