“We are happy to inform the committee that plans are at an advanced stage to continue the civil service verification exercise which started in 2015.

“We can confirm to you today that the verification is scheduled for November 2016 in some North-Eastern states for pensioners. We intend to immediately follow with Rivers.

“As a Committee with oversight function over PTAD, we have extended an invitation to the Committee to visit our verification centers and have a real-life experience of how we do our verification.”
