Sub: – Attesting Officers authorized for physical verification of Life Certificate to SAMPANN Pensioners- inclusion of BSNL Officers – reg.
We wish to bring to your kind notice the following issue for favourable consideration.
The Officers authorized for verification of physical life certificate, as per Central Treasury Rules, include Magistrates, MPs, MLAs, Gazetted Officers, Reserve Bank Officers. Non-gazetted Officers like Sub Inspector of Police, Inspector of Post Offices and departmental Sub Post Masters are also in the list.
But, surprisingly, no BSNL Officers who were gazetted officers before corporatization are included in the list. There have been instances where in some of these listed Officers refusing to issue the certificate as they are unaware of their authority.
We, being BSNL Pensioners, are having easy access and good relationship with BSNL Officers of the respective place. Therefore, it will be beneficial and helpful to the BSNL Pensioners if the Officers of BSNL, like SDE, DE, AGM are also included in the list of Officers authorized for physical verification of Life Certificate and request you to kindly cause necessary action for the same.
