Now pensioners can submit their survival certificate at their nearest post offices. According to the information received from the Department of Posts, the department has implemented the system of submission of living certificates of pensioners in 1 lakh 55 thousand 600 post offices in the country. After the implementation of this system, pensioners will not have to make rounds of banks and treasury. On submission of the certificate at the nearest post office, it will reach the concerned bank or treasury online.
Pensioners will get benefit
Pensioners of hilly areas especially Uttarakhand will get more benefit of this scheme. In hilly districts, pensioners have to travel inaccessible roads to reach the treasury or bank and pay high fares in vehicles. Now they will be able to submit the living certificate at the nearest post office.
