Government to destroy babus performance appraisal reports


Government to destroy babus performance appraisal reports

New Delhi: The performance appraisal reports of IAS and IPS officers, who have retired two years ago, will be destroyed by the Centre.

It has asked officers of all India services - Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Police Service (IPS) and Indian Forest Service (IFoS) - to make a request to the central government in case they want to have a copy of their performance reports.

Existing norms allow confidential rolls of members of all-India services to be destroyed two years after their death or retirement.

The rules also provide that Confidential Reports (CRs) or Performance Appraisal Reports (PARs) of such bureaucrats can be given to them after the normal period of retention of two years is over from the date of their retirement.

"Action is accordingly being taken for destroying such CRs/PARs," an order issued by the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) said.

Officers who wish to obtain their dossiers may send their requests to the Ministry till June 14, 2017, the order said.

PCDA Circular 190 - Non transfer of Pension files from banks to other PDAs


PCDA Circular 190 - Non transfer of Pension files from banks to other PDAs

Office of the Principal Controller of Defence Accounts (Pension), Draupadi
Ghat, Allahabad-211014
Circular No. 190
No. AT/Tech/70-XXV
Dated:16.03.2017
To,
1. The Chief Accountant, RBI Deptt. of Govt. Bank Accounts, Central office C-7, Second Floor, Bandre- Kurla Complex, P B No. 8143, Bandre East Mumbai-400051.
2. The Manger CPPC of Public Sector Banks including IDBI
3. The Nodal Officers (ICICI/ AXIS/HDFC Bank)

Sub: Non transfer of Pension files from banks to other PDAs.

This office is receiving representations from pensioners/family pensioners stating that they have submitted applications to their banks for transfer of their pension account to other PDA, however, banks are not transferring their pension account to the new PDAs.

In this regards, attention is drawn to para 3 of “Scheme for Payment of Pension of Defence Pension’ by Public Sector Banks” which clearly provides that pensioner will have the choice to draw their pension from any PDA. Further in para 7 of above scheme, procedure for transfer of pension account from one PDA to another PDA has been laid down. Similar provisions for transfer of pension account alongwith necessary supporting documents from one PDA to another PDAs are available in para 93.1, 93.3 and 94 of Defence Pension Payment Instruction 2013.

Non-transfer of pension account of pensioner/family pensioners, if opting, is not only a violation of provisions laid down but also reason of cause of dissent in pensioner/family pensioner. It is, therefore, requested to transfer pension account of pensioners/family pensioners to the new PDA on priority as and when pensioner/family pensioner opts for the same.
