The Government of Gujarat has decided to verify the annual survival of the pensioners of the State Government in the month of May by the resolution of the Finance Department. If survival cannot be verified in May, exemption is granted till July. Provision has been made to defer payment of pension amount in case of pensioner failing to prove his / her survival during this period.
A lockdown has been implemented by the government to control the Koro epidemic. Therefore, it was under the consideration of the Government to change the period for verification of survival so that the pensioners do not have difficulty in verifying their annual subsistence.
Resolution: After careful consideration, it is decided to verify the annual survival of the pensioners in June instead of May. In addition, pensioners who cannot verify survival in June can also verify survival in July and August. In addition, Pensioners / Family Pensioners of the State Government can also verify their online survival on the Jeevan Pramaan Portal (www.jeevanpramaan.gov.in) as per the resolution above (3) taken from the reading. Thus, in case the pensioner fails to verify his / her life in June, July or August in the year 2020, it is decided to defer the payment of the pension amount from September. The other provisions of the Finance Department from time to time regarding the verification of the annual survival of the pensioners will remain the same. These instructions will be effective for the year 2020 only.
