Stoppage of Use of Abbreviations in Pensioner/Family Pensioner Names in Fresh & Revision Special Seal Authorities and PPOs
The Central Pension Accounting Office (CPAO) has issued an office memorandum requesting that abbreviations not be used in the names of pensioners/family pensioners in fresh and revision special seal authorities and PPOs. This is due to the fact that the use of abbreviations has resulted in mismatches in details/names of concerned individuals, causing difficulties in authorizing and disbursing pension/family pension. The memorandum asks that full names/details of pensioners/family pensioners be mentioned in PPO and revision authority as per service records without the use of abbreviations.

Sub:- Stoppage of use of abbreviations in the name of Pensioner/ Family Pensioner in Fresh & Revision Special Seal Authorities and PPOs- reg.
Central Pension Accounting Office (CPAO) has been receiving various cases regarding clarification in the name of pensioner/family pensioner. Where instead of using full details/name of pensioner/family pensioner, the abbreviations are being used, which result in mismatch in the details/name of concerned individual and cause hardship to CPAO and PDA in authorizing and disbursing the pension/family pension. This problem arises due to abbreviations used by PAO, leading to mismatch of data in PPO/SSA/Bank account and other documentary records. To avoid mismatching of data, PAOs need to mention full name/details of pensioner/family pensioner in PPO and revision authority as per service records only and no abbreviation should be used.
2. In view of above, all the Pr. CCAs/CCAs/CAs/AGs are requested to issue instructions to PAOs under
their control to follow the above mentioned instructions for smooth disbursement of pension/family
This issues with the approval of the Chief Controller (Pensions).
