Subject : Issue of Identity Cards to Central Government pensioner

The undersigned is directed to say that the Parliamentary Standing Committee on MHA in para 26 of its 60th report has inter-alia recommended that Government should favorably consider on priority the desirability of issuing Identity Card on retirement to each Central Government employee. The recommendations we reproduced below:

“26.2 The Committee feels that it would be in fitness of things if the civilian employees are also issued Identity Cards indicating the details such as last post held before retirement, pay scale of the post last held period of service rendered etc. which the retired employee can carry on his person for identification as and when needed.

26.3 The Card may also include on the reverse the retired employee’s Blood Group, his residential address and telephone number, if there is one.

26.4 The Committee strongly recommend that the Government should favorably consider on priority the desirability of issuing such cards on retirement to each Central Government employee.”

2. The recommendations made by the Parliamentary Standing Committee has been carefully examined. It has been decided that I.Cards will be issued by various Ministries/Departments/offices to its retired/retiring employees and the expenditure on providing a laminated I.Card will be borne by the pensioner. This Department has devised a format in which I.Cards are to be issued to pensioners (specimen enclosed). It will be the responsibility of the concerned Ministry/Department to work out the expenditure that may be involved in issuing a laminated I.Card to pensioner and the card may be issued at the request of the pensioner on cost recovery basis.

3. Ministry of Agriculture etc. are requested to take urget necessary action in this regard.
