Subject:-Scheme for payment of pension through e-pension system—Submission of Life Certificate-extension thereof.
I am directed .to invite your attention to Finance Department’s letter No. 14/81/ 2012-5FA dated 10.09.2012, No. 2/32/2012-1Pension dated 30.11.2012, 20.11.2013, 01.07.2014, 08.12.2017, 15/18.12.2017 and 10.05.2018 vide which State Government has prescribed the detailed procedure in respect of pensioners/family pensioners who are covered under e-pension system.
As you are aware that as per rules, life certificate for State Government pensioners/family pensioners is taken in the month of November every year for further continuation of his/her pension/family pension. The pension/family pension gets stopped automatically, if life certificate is not received in the month of November. Presently, due to Covid-19 pandemic, it would be very difficult to take life certificate of all the pensioners /family pensioners in one month (November) as the pensioners/family pensioners are old age persons more prone to infections.
Therefore, in view of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and keeping in view of the vulnerability of elderly population of Corona Virus and decision of Central Government, State Government, after due consideration, has decided to extend the existing timeline for submission of life certificate. This year all State Government’s pensioners can submit life certificate from 1st November, 2020 onwards till 31st December, 2020. During this extended period the pension will be continued to be paid by the Pension Disbursing Authority (PDA) uninterrupted.
