As usual, every year in November, SPARSH sends numerous msg everyday on your mobile phone and email also regarding submission of Life Certificate. Life Certificate is the most important factor for a pensioner. You might have experienced that SPARSH portal not always function smoothly to accept life certificate.
However, now days it is quite responsive and you can put your digital life certificate instantly on SPARSH Portal. Though, as reported, thousands of veterans have failed to access the Life Certificate submission process on SPARSH. In this situation need not to be worried at all.
You may now submit your life certificate in Bank also as earlier. But remember that your pension sanctioning authority and disbursing authority should be correctly mentioned while submitting it through Bank. Both should be SPARSH- PCDA (P) , Allahabad for all ranks of all 3 wings of Armed Forces Pensioners.
If you are submitting your life certificate in Bank, must mention SPARSH PCDA Allahabad at the top of the application/ Life certificate form and put your new SPRSH PPO number. Enclose your latest pension slip and PPO if available. You may also submit your life certificicate digitally through Jeevn Praman. Detailed process available in this website.
