SUBMISSION OF ANNUAL LIFE CERTIFICATES BY PENSIONERS
1. It is mentioned that submission of Annual Life Certificates by pensioners has emerged as a major challenge after implementation of SPARSH. Approx 4.5 lakh pensioners are yet to submit their life certificates. In case the same is not submitted by 20 Feb 23, remittance of monthly pension might get affected.
2. To facilitate pensioners, PCDA(P) has made arrangements to obtain life certificates through banks for importing into SPARSH. In this connection, a copy of PCDA (P) letter No EDP/58/CPP/2022/Vol-II dt 13 Oct 22 is enclosed herewith.
3. Pensioners may please be advised to visit banks and submit life certificates as was being done before.
4. For further dissemination to all concerned and wide publicity through ZSBs, CSD Canteens, ECHS Polyclinics, ESM Cells and all other possible means please.
