The Modi government has given a big deal to over 65 lakh central pensioners in the midst of Corona crisis. Pensioners have now increased the deadline to submit their life certificate. Now pensioners can complete this work by February 2021. Its deadline was kept on 31 December, but now about 2 months’ extra time has been given to pensioners.
A life certificate is proof of the pensioner’s survival. If it is not deposited, the government can stop getting pension. On normal days, the life certificate has to be submitted by 30 November. It is necessary to submit this certificate every year.
