CPI (M) leader Mohamad Yousuf Tarigami has urged the  administration to withdraw its order, concerning the pensioners to be physically present before the Treasury Officers for verification. 

The circular issued by the Finance Department ordered all the pensioners to present themselves before the Treasury Officers for physical verification .

The retirees drawing pension have been submitting life certificates with their concerned bank branch for the purpose of such verifications.  In this digital age,  the life  certificates could be filed online mode. 

A  good number of pensioners are residing outside the Valley for the last so many years and it would prove quite a cumbersome process for them to visit the Treasury Offices. This will not only alleviate the burden on the elderly and ailing pensioners  but also streamline the verification process in alignment with modern digital practices.

Additionally, the treasuries are facing shortage of manpower and the verification process would further  strain them.

Tarigami appealed to the administration to reconsider its order and allow the pensioners to submit the life certificates at their concerned bank branches, both online and offline mode for their convenience.
