7th Pay Commission Update: The Central government pensioners will now get their monthly pension slips through email, SMS and WhatsApp.
In an Office Memorandum, the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions has asked banks to send pension slips to pensioners online. The registered mobile number of the pensioners will be used to send the digital pension slips, the government order said.

The decision was taken in a recent meeting of the Ministry’s department of pension and pensioners welfare with the Centralised Pension Processing Centres (CPPCs) of Pension Distributing Banks.
“Accordingly, the undersigned is directed to request all Pension Disbursing Banks to issue pension slips to pensioners after the credit of pension on their registered mobile numbers through SMS and email (wherever available) also. Banks may also use social media apps, WhatsApp, etc. in addition to SMS and email. The pension slip should provide complete details of monthly pension paid along with the break-up of the amount credited and tax deductions etc. if any,” the Office Memorandum reads.
It also mentioned that this order has been taken to ensure ‘Ease of Living' of the Pensioners, wherein the issue of providing the breakup of monthly pension to the pensioners was discussed. The banks were impressed upon to undertake this welfare measure, as this information is required by pensioners in connection with Income Tax, Dearness Relief (DR) payment, DR arrears etc.
It further says that the banks welcomed the idea and expressed their willingness to provide the information.
The salaries and pensions of Central government employees are disbursed as per the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission.
