Punjab government through its letter dated 22-03-08 decided to allow increase in pension admissible in the respective financial year on the restored commuted portion of the pension of all government servants retired on or before 30-06-01. Despite repeated requests audit offices are not giving this benefit to the pensioners falling in this category. Federal Finance Division on 29-02-08 issued similar orders as well. AGPR implemented these orders and authorized the banks to allow benefit of the increase in pension individually to the federal pensioners, whose commuted portion of pension had been restored. Punjab Finance Department is requested to issue instructions to the AG Punjab and DAO's to allow increase in pension as sanctioned through its letter of 22-03-08. -SH.
