    Read the following:-
 1. G.O.Ms.No.101, Finance (Pen.I) Department, dated 06-04-2010.  2. Principal Accountant General (A&E), Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad , D.O. Letter NO.PAG (A&E), PM/II/2011-12/33234, dated 16-03-2012.

ORDER:
Government have issued orders based on the recommendations of the 9th PRC, inter-alia, vide G.O.Ms.No.101, Finance (Pen.I) Department, dated 06-04-2010 treating the amount of Dearness Allowance admissible as on the date of retirement/on the date of death of employee while in service as “emoluments”, in addition to the basic pay, for purpose of arriving at the amount of retirement gratuity.  

2. In pursuance of above orders of the Government, the Pension Sanctioning Authorities have to calculate the Retirement Gratuity based on the Basic Pay + D.A. as on the date of retirement, while furnishing pension papers of a retired employee to the Principal Accountant General (A&E), Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad. But, due to sanctioning of Revised Dearness Allowance subsequently, the Retirement Gratuity is being calculated based on the orders existing at the time of retirement by the Pension Sanctioning Authorities, though they are entitled for revised rate of DA which is sanctioned at a later date after retirement of the Government Servant. The Principal Accountant General (A&E) is allowing enhanced Retirement Gratuity taking into account the D.A. sanctioned by the Government at a later date in the case the  Pension Papers  of retired employees were under process in their Office.

3.  Whereas in the case of already issued PPOs in between the period of two installments of DA, the Principal Accountant General (A&E), Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad in his letter 3rd read above, has proposed to issue a combined authorization, which will contain all details like name of the Pensioner, PPO number, district and amounts payable, for enhanced Retirement Gratuity to the Director of Treasuries and Accounts district wise without formal sanction of the Pension Sanction Authorities, so as to avoid unnecessary process and inconvenience to the retired employees.  The Director of Treasuries and Accounts, Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad in turn will be able to directly authorize the DTOs/PPO, Hyderabad for crediting amount so authorized by the Principal Accountant General (A&E) into the Bank accounts of the retired employees, in which their pension is being credited.   The Principal Accountant General, A.P., Hyderabad has requested to issue necessary orders in this regard.

4. Government, after careful consideration of the matter, hereby accord permission to the Principal Accountant General, A.P., Hyderabad (A&E) to issue combined authorization, in the cases of retired employees who were already issued PPOs, but, due to sanctioning of Revised Dearness Allowance subsequently, the Retirement Gratuity is being calculated based on the orders at the time of retirement by the Pension Sanctioning Authorities, though they are entitled for revised rate of DA which is sanctioned at a later date after retirement of the Government Servant, which will contain all details like name of the Pensioner, PPO number, District and amounts payable, for enhanced Retirement Gratuity to the Director of Treasuries and Accounts, A.P., Hyderabad, district-wise so as to facilitate the pensioners to draw their enhanced Retirement Gratuity and to avoid unnecessary delay in process and to save money and time.

5. The Director of Treasuries and Accounts, A.P., Hyderabad shall furnish the authorizations to the Deputy Directors, District Treasury Offices/Pension Payment Officer, Hyderabad.  The Deputy Directors, District Treasury Offices/Pension Payment Officer, Hyderabad shall segregate the names of the Pensioners Treasury-wise/APPO wise and instruct concerned Treasury Officers/Asst. Pension Payment Officers for crediting the amount so authorized by the Principal Accountant General (A&E) into the Bank accounts of the retired employees, in which their pension is being credited.   In case of share holders of gratuity, the enhanced gratuity shall also be credited into their respective Bank accounts in the manner the Gratuity was paid to them.  

6. The Director of Treasuries and Accounts, A.P., Hyderabad shall take necessary further action in the matter accordingly.

  (BY ORDER AND IN THE NAME OF THE GOVERNOR OF ANDHRA PRADESH)        

                             
                             Dr. D.SAMBASIVA RAO
