PAO(ORs)EME is primarily responsible for holding and maintaining the pay
and provident fund accounts of approximately 1.10 lakhs EME personnel below officers rank(PBORs).
In addition to the maintenance of the IRLAs of the effective PBORs, PAO also maintains the
closed IRLAs of non-effective personnel and ensures payment of any dues which may come to light as due
to them subsequent to their final settlement.
Computerization of accounts of PBORs started in the year 1991. Presently this office has a full fledged
EDP Centre with modern systems hardware. The system relies on the software developed "in-house" by the department
in COBOL on UNIX based environment. This is now switched over to more current RDBMS based on-line System called "Dolphin".
The PAO in its advisory capacity not only aids the Executives at EME Records and EME Depot in coping up with their
day-to-day functions but also imparts training to their general duty staff on matters relating
to the correct publication of DOs II etc at not only local units but also various out-station units spread over the
length and breath of the country.
