Acceptance of digitally signed revision authorities
CPAO order(CPAO/IT&Tech/Revision(7th CPC)/19.Vol-III(B)/2017-18-106) dated 24.8.2017
Subiect– Acceptance of digitally signed revision authorities.
CPAO is receiving references from CPPCs as to whether the physical copy of digitally signed authorities duly embossed with Special Seal is required. In this context, it is made clear that the objective of implementation of paperless movement of authorities from CPAO to CPPCS is the removal of physical movement of authorities from CPAo to CPPCs of the Authorised Banks. This issue was also discussed in the meeting held with Banks/CPPCs dated-l1.08.2017 Chaired by CC [P) and it was clarified that the digitally signed authorities are sufficient to process the pension case by the banks, therefore, it is not required to send physically signed SSA separately.
In view ofthe above CPPCs ofall the Authorized Banks should not insist for physical copy of SSA.
This issues with the approval ofthe competent authority.
