Principal Accountant General has brought to the notice of Finance Department that pursuant to instructions issued by the Department in February last year, the service books of the government employees of the UT J&K, who are due to retire w.e.f 01.01.2024 to 01.06.2024, are being verified in the first phase by the office of Accountant General.

As per a government circular, Principal Accountant General has also pointed out that while checking the service books of employees, it has been observed that in significant number of cases fixation and regulation of pay of the employees has not been carried out correctly in accordance with the relevant rules and government orders, thereby causing loss to the government exchequer and resulting in avoidable delay in the settlement of pension cases.

Accordingly, a check list for guidance of the Pension Sanctioning Authorities in the Government Departments has been framed in consultation with the AG’s Office and is annexed to this circular.

“All the Administrative Secretaries are advised to direct the Pension Sanctioning Authorities subordinate to them to check the fixation & regulation of pay of the employees, as per the check list, before submitting the service books to the office of Accountant General for verification” read a circular.
