How to register at RODRA and get your 7 CPC – e-PPO


Pension Payment Order (PPO) is an important document as far as Pensioners are concerned which determines the Pension to be fixed at the time of retirement. Until October 2017, process of issuing PPO was done manually by PCDA.

PCDA has started issuing electronic-Pension Payment Orders (e-PPOs) for all defence pensioners including defence civilians.  The shift from manual system to e-PPO system is expected to minimize delays in pension disbursement and further revision as and when needed. This initiative also eliminates the occurrence of human errors in data entry at multiple levels.

  16. Sir, Please let me know who will send the duly filled form of ” LPC cum Datasheet of revision of Pension/Family Pension in respect of Pre -2016 Commissioned Officer as per 7th CPC ” . I retd in 1981 and I do not have all that data , which is required to to be filled in that form , The” LPC cum Datasheet ” has been duly downloaded from RODRA Website . The documents which are to be uploaded are not very clear. The PENSIONERS / FAMILY PENSIONERS is available with PCDA(O) & PCDA ( P ). This available date can be collected from both them to prepare the ePPO instead of asking the pensioners/family pensioners to provide the DATA/INFORMATION. I request you clarify the matter, Thanks
