“Whether eligible for FMA – YES/NO.”
This would, however, be subject to:
(i) sanction accorded by Pension Sanctioning Authority for employees retired/retiring after 21.04.1999 and
(ii) Pensioners satisfying the condition of eligibility for grant of FMA in terms of extant instruction/guidelines issued from Board vide letter no. PC-V/98/7/1/1 dt 21.04.99 followed by letter dt. 01.03.2004, 24.07.2007, 07.02.2008, letter no. PC-V/2010/A/Med./1 dt 29.06.2010, PC-V/2011/Med/1 dt 07.06.2011 and 26.08.2011.
For pensioners retired before 21.04.1999, option for Fixed Medical Allowance (FMA) would be considered by pension disbursing authority (bank) in terms of provisions/guidelines contained in Board’s letter referred to above.
