DEARNESS RELIEF

100% neutralization of relief is granted to all pensioners at the same rate like serving employees. 

G.18 Is the Dearness Relief payable on original basic pension or on reduced pension after commutation? 
The Dearness Relief is payable on original basic pension before commutation. 

G.19 Is any authorization from PAO/CPAO required for payment of dearness relief on increased rates to pensioners/family pensioners?

Each Central Pension Processing Centre will be responsible for ensuring that instructions of the Government have been carried out by the paying branches and payment of additional relief at the revised rates to the pensioners has been commenced by them without any undue delay.

Yes, w.e.f. 18/07/97 onwards subject to conditions contained in DoP&W O.M. No. 45/73/97-P&PW(G) dated 2nd July,1999.
