SPARSH for Defence Civilian Pensioners

This is regarding the implementation of the SPARSH system for defense civilian pensioners. The document outlines specific procedures to be followed when submitting pension and gratuity claims for verification.

It states that a descriptive roll is not needed, and instead, PAN/Aadhar details of the officer and spouse are sufficient for authentication. It also mentions that the LPC/Data sheet is no longer required, and instead, an Annexure-I showing pay details of the last 10 months, signed by a competent officer, should be submitted.

The application for a pensioner’s Identity Card should be sent along with the pension paper. The central and regional commands are instructed to disseminate this information to their respective formations. The document is signed by Jai Prakash, IDSE, on behalf of the Central Record Office (Officers).
