Harihar Mishra, implementing officer about the Monthly Pay System to be adopted by the Pay Accounts Office .
In the existing system, accounts of PBORs are being closed on quarterly basis and payments due to them are being paid through the public fund accounts of their units and not directly into their personal savings bank accounts. Now in the new system introduced from 31/08/2009, salary accounts will be closed on monthly basis and dues will be credited directly into the savings bank accounts of PBORs’. This would provide much greater convenience to PBORs’ apart from simplification in payment and accounting system of the Government. Apart from salary, all other payments due to PBORs’ on account of Provident Fund and other advances shall be credited directly and electronically into such savings bank a/cs of PBORs’.
