Therefore it is decided that PPO notified in favour of Punjab National Bank would be forwarded to CPPC as per new list provided by Punjab National Bank.
On switching over the dispatch of PPOs from Link Branches to CPPC, there is a need to familiarize these CPPC about checks to be observed/exercised before making first payment which was hitherto been exercised by link branches. Therefore a copy of this office circular No. 113 dt-27-05-2005 is enclosed herewith which will help the CPPC in establishing genuineness of PPO as well as to avoid fraudulent payment of pensionary benefit to imposters on fake PPOs. A copy of allotment of Block series of PPO to be notified in year 2012 alonwith specimen signature of officers authorized to sign PPO/Payment authority is forwarded herewith.
In view of the above, it is requested that checks provided in check list annexed with this office circular No. 113 dt. 27/05/2005 may invariably be exercised/observed before releasing first payment. Please acknowledge the receipt.
