Be Alert : Pension May be Stopped if Not Taken Action

Defence pensioners shuld take immediate action  as instructions received from their pension disbursing authority i.e PCDA Pension, Prayagraj.  As you know that defence pension disbursement system has now been fully changed and migrated to SPARSH.  PCDA has already  published notification and a long list of personnel who have not submitted their annual identification on SPARSH till date on their official website.

SPARSH Migrated Pensioners need to submit their Life Certificate/ Annual Identification from this year onwards using their migrate SPARSH PPO Number only. Submission of life certificate on SPARSH portal/ Jeevan Praman /Bank in any mode will comply the instructions of PCDA if you have mentioned  the SPARSH PPO Number only.  Old PPO number will not connect your present SPARSH  profile anyway and as per Govt Policy, pension may be stopped for non submission of Life Certificate/ annual identification.  You may check it if your pension has been migrated to SPARSH or not by clicking here.
