Sub: Extension of the last date for submission of Life Certificate by the Pensioners / Family Pensioners

As per existing rules, the Pensioners / Family Pensioners receiving pension from the State Government are required to submit Life Certificates in the month of November every year to the concerned Treasuries / Pension Disbursing Banks.

In view of the ongoing COVID – 19 pandemic and the vulnerability of the elderly persons to Coronavirus, the Governor has now been pleased to order that in the current year all the Pensioners / Family Pensioners may submit Life Certificate to the Treasuries / Pension Disbursing Banks, as the case may be, till 28.02.2021.

During the extended period, the pension / family pension will continue to be paid by the Pension Disbursing Authorities uninterrupted. The Treasuries / Public Sector Banks will stop disbursing pension from the month of March 2021 for non-receipt of Life Certificate.

However, in the coming years, unless otherwise directed by the State Government, the concerned Pensioners / Family Pensioners will have to submit Life Certificate in the month of November as per existing rules failing which Treasury /Public Sector Banks will stop disbursement of pension/family pension from the month of January of the next year.

Notwithstanding what has been stated above, the Treasury/ Pension Disbursing bank will continue to accept life certificate even after the scheduled month of November every year and will accordingly take necessary measures for restoration of pension/ family pension, as the case may be, after observing necessary procedures.
