I am also to request that until further orders the Pensioner on claiming exemption from Income Tax, may be required by the paying Officer to execute after the 5th April in each year, the enclosed form of Declaration as regards Income, which Declaration should be attached to the voucher for the first payment made after that date.
These payments should be charged by the Treasurer, in his account, for recovery through the Commissioner of Audit.
