GPF | Revision of the Upper Monetary Limit for various categories of Sanctioning Authorities for sanctioning NRA/Conversion of TA to NRA-Orders Issued | Order No.GO(P) No.37/2019/Fin Dated 30-03-2019


Government introduced online facility for GPF NRA/Conversion application submission through SPARK for GPF subscribers to bring transparency and also to simplify the procedure for availing NRA/Conversion of TA to NRA.

Now, it has been brought to the notice of the Government that the Upper Monetary Limit and categorization of officers specified therein the G.O. read as second paper above, is causing undue delay and inconvenience in sanctioning NRA/Conversion consequent on revision of pay and allowances of State Government Employees and introduction of online facilities using SPARK for applying and approving NRA/Conversion requests.

Government have examined the matter in detail and are pleased to revise the existing Upper Monetary Limit to various categories of Sanctioning Authorities as below for sanctioning NRA/Conversion of TA to NRA subject to a maximum of 75% of the eligible balance at credit of the subscriber, as booked by the Accountant General:

1) DDO’s are authorized to sanction General Provident Fund NRA/Conversion to all employees under his control.

2) In the case of DDO’s , Controlling Officer/immediate superior officer/Head of Department is authorized to sanction the same.

3) In the case of Head of Departments , the power vests with the Secretary to Government of the Administrative Department concerned in Secretariat.

All NRA/Conversion of TA to NRA will take in effect only after getting online authorization of the Principal Accountant General in SPARK and all the bills of the GPF NRA will be generated and encashed by the DDO’s through SPARK only based on this online authorization issued by the Principal Accountant General.

The Categorisation of Officers and Monetary Limits fixed herein for NRA/Conversion shall be in supersession of all existing orders issued in the matter. Each Head of Department shall issue an order specifying the DDO’s under its control and intimate the same to Government and the Principal Accountant General (A&E) Kerala, Thiruvananthapuram.
