An educated elderly lady was misled by her relatives to exclude the name of her eldest daughter in her application to the Revenue authorities for release of a Legal Heir Certificate. This certificate was required by the elderly lady for getting her late husband's pension for her. The revenue authorities of AP issued a certificate with names of other two children and excluded the eldest daughter. Now a situation has arisen that the eldest daughter angered by this is threatening the elderly lady of a legal case against the elderly lady for getting her pension stopped. My query is 1) Can such lapse of giving false information to Revenue authorities be a ground for stoppage of pension. 2)Is this illegal.
