Ministry of Finance issued office memorandum no F.No.l/l/2008-IC dated 25.08.2009 wide which it has been notified that second installment of 60% arrears of sixth pay commission be paid to Govt.employee immediately .

Further it is notified that in case of entrants after 01.01.2004 in Govt, arrears may be released only after individual application forms for registration to the New Pension Scheme have been obtained by the DDO/PAO from the concerned government servant.

The first installment of 40 percent was paid last fiscal.
