Step I: Employee selection for Preparation
Salary matters→Manual Bill Preparation (Pre 2/2011)→Claim w.r.t employees having PEN (Retired)
DDO can select employee (PEN) after successfully filling the mandatory fields such as DDO code, Nature of Bill, Claimant Type, Period of Bill, Sanctioning authority, Order number, Order Date, Head of account etc.
Make sure that the period entered in the Period of Bill column should match with the month and year selected for the bill preparation towards the end of the form. Once the data entered and saved by using ‘SAVE and CONFIRM’ button, a draft bill can be generated for initial verification.

Step II: Draft Bill Generation.
Salary matters→Manual Bill preparation (Pre 2/2011)→Claim w.r.t employees having PEN (Retired)
ALL pending bills will be listed in the left side of the page. On selecting the item, links will be displayed towards the right side of the same page for generating the hard copy. If anything is found incorrect, it is possible to edit or delete the existing entry by the user and generate again. Inner Bill, Outer Bill and bank details are also available for verification. Final bill for presenting to Treasury can be generated after ‘make Bill’ option.
Similarly salary arrear /DA Arrear for an employee as a claimant can be generated by using the above procedure.

After getting the bill number, the hard copy of the bill can be generated through the link available in ‘make bill’ or through the Salary matters→Manual Bill Preparation (Pre 2/2011) →Claim w.r.t employees having PEN (Retired)option. Then the system will generate the Final bill with the watermark ‘Manual Bill Pre (02/2011).
