Memo No. DT/O/14/C-07/92(64), Dated: 20.01.2009.


The Treasury Officer,.......................................................

Sub: Admissibility of provisional pension and clarification thereof.

Some correspondence were received in connection with sanction and payment of provisional pension from various comer by the Directorate of Treasuries & Accounts, West Bengal. The said reference were subsequently forwarded to the Finance Department, Pension Branch for their valued opinion. Now it has been clarified by the said Department vide their U.O. No. 159-F (Pen) dated. 01.01.2009 which is reproduced below.

"Pension on provisional basis can be sanctioned in terms of G.O. No. 547-F (Pen) dated 12.04.1993 when interim orders have been passed by the Hon'ble High Court or Appeals are pending in Hon'ble High Court. In such cases issuance of P.P.O. by the A.G., W.B. does not arise, although where judicial or departmental proceedings are pending, provisional pension can be sanctioned only on the basis of P.P.O. issued by the A.G., W.B.

Provisional Pension is to be sanctioned by the Head of the Office for a period of 12 months. In no case provisional pension will continue beyond 12 months without concurrence of the Finance Department vide G.O. No. 10000-F dated 13.09.1982. But the Audit Officer (A.G. W.B) should invariably be informed of the position in regard to the grant of provisional pension and gratuity when the pension cases are forwarded to him. No provisional pension and gratuity should be sanction after submission of pension cases to A.G., W.B. (vide G.O. No. 7680-F dated 16.10.1973). Dearness relief is admissible on provisional pension."

It has also been informed by the Department that the matter of review of order No. 334-F(Pen) dated 29.03.1999 is under their consideration.

This is for information and necessary action for all concern.
