 ,
 I am to invite your attention to the references cited. 
 2. In the Government Order 1st  cited, among others, orders were issued in para 3(f) to the effect that the arrears due for the period from  1-1-2007 to 31-5-2009 after adjusting the Interim Arrears shall be paid in three equal annual instalments viz.,                
1st  instalment in the year 2009-10, 
2nd  instalment in the year 2010-11 and 
3rd  and final  instalment in the year 2011-12.   

 3. In the Government Order second cited, among others, orders were issued in 
para 7 to the effect that the arrears of pension due for the period from 1-1-2007 to           
31-5-2009 after adjusting the Interim Arrears shall  be paid in three equal annual 
instalments viz., first instalment in the year 2009-10, second instalment in the year 
2010-11 and third and final instalment in the year 2011-12. 
  
 4. In the Government Order fourth cited, among others, orders were issued for 
revision of pension and pensionery benefits in respect of teachers and equivalent staff 
working in Universities, Government and Government  aided Colleges as applicable to 
the State Government employees and to pay the arrears for such revision after 
adjusting the Interim Arrears in three equal annual instalments viz., first instalment in 
the year 2009-10, second instalment in the year 2010-11 and third and final instalment 
in the year 2011-12. 

 5. In the Government order fifth cited, orders were also issued for revision of 
pension of persons who draw 1/3rd   of Pension and who rendered Government service 
before absorption in Public Sector Undertakings. 

 6. Based on the orders issued in the Government orders first, second, fourth and 
fifth cited, 1st  and 2nd  instalments of Pay / Pension arrears and difference in pensionery 
benefits have been released and paid in the years 2009-10, 2010-11 and the third and 
final instalment of Pay / Pension arrears is due for payment in the year 2011-12. 

However, doubts have now been raised as to whether the third and final instalment of 
arrears due to the employees / pensioners may be claimed and paid to them in April 
2011.  In this connection, I am directed to inform that the third and final instalment of the 
arrears due for payment in the year 2011-12 as ordered in the Government Orders cited 
may be drawn and paid to the employees / pensioners immediately.  
                    Yours faithfully, 
                      for Secretary to Government (Expenditure).
