The controller of Accounts, odisha also does not maintain separate authority slips for Pensioners/family pensioners of the two categories namely taken over schools and Aided Schools and Colleges.
4. In order to overcome the administrative inconvenience causing undue hardship to the eligible pensioners/family pensioners, Government have decided to extend the arrear of the revised pension from 01.01.2016 to 30.09.2017 in case of all pensioners/family pensioners managed by the controller of Accounts, Odisha, Bhubaneswar irrespective of the category to which they belong.
5. However, the Controller of Accounts, odisha will take steps for detailed scrutiny of existing pension/family pension records relating to Aided fold and taken over fold so that in future, separate pension authority slips are prepared for the two categories of pensioners/family pensioners stated above. The Controller of Accounts, Odisha will also ensure that retiring pensioners from the two different categories in future are clearly identified through the pension authority slip.
