The extension of the time period of submission of life certificate for Central Government pensioners till 28th February 2022 is in wake of current Covid-19 pandemic.

As per the Office Memorandum of Ministry of Personnel Public Grievances and Pensions, in view of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic in various states and keeping in view of the vulnerability of elderly population to Corona Virus, it has been decided to extend the existing timeline of 31.12.2021 for submission of Life Certificate for all age group of pensioners.
